Artificial Grass is making a comeback! Today, more Nashville homeowners replace their natural lawn with artificial grass than ever before. Why? Because artificial turf looks and feels incredibly real.
Not only does artificial grass offer year-round beauty, but it is also low maintenance and enhances your home’s curb appeal with its heavenly lush green color. Other uses for artificial grass include:
- Residential applications
- Commercial sites
- Pet areas
- Putting greens
We’ll examine each application and discuss how the best artificial grass fits seamlessly into many outdoor spaces.
Artificial Turf Applications
Artificial lawns for residential areas can solve many problems you may have with your natural lawn. Synthetic turf lawns can be applied to the front garden, back yard, roof, balcony, terraces, and even indoors.
Commercial Grass Applications
Commercial artificial grass can be used in working offices, display shops, swimming pools, parks, and restaurants. This grass is engineered to keep your space looking fresh and clean for your customers for many years. Synthetic turf for commercial applications is engineered to be especially durable, able to withstand heavy use for years without showing wear or tear.
Synthetic grass for dogs is a must-have if you have pets. Dog urine leaves dead brown patches in natural grass lawns. With artificial pet turf, urine is not a problem. Dog urine flushes through the turf drainage holes when it rains or is hosed down. Artificial turf is also durable and non-toxic, giving you the best synthetic turf grass options for your home. Dogs, other pets, and children can play on artificial grass without it putting them at risk.
Putting Green Turf
We can install golf putting green turf indoors and outdoors. Smart Scapes LLC provides artificial putting greens that will remind you of the natural grass at the golf course. A private golf course in your own backyard!
Artificial Turf is Great for Playgrounds
An artificial turf is a great option for covering your playground area, for helping to reduce impact and injury from falls, and for giving your children the feeling of soft grass. The infill (a special additive placed underneath the best artificial grass) will help absorb a child’s fall, keeping children safe and the play area looking perfect. This type of artificial grass is also non-toxic and safe for children. Artificial turf for playgrounds is also fully recyclable for when you’re ready to install something else!

Infill – Making “Good” Artificial Turf Great
The artificial grass of today is not what it was ten years ago. The main difference is the use of infill material. The term: “synthetic grass infill” refers to small rubber particles or sand placed between the blades of grass to help keep them standing up and keep them looking real, especially in high traffic areas where wear and tear on the grass is more of a concern. Infill also gives the surface more cushioning and acts as artificial earth of sorts, providing more shock absorption and giving you the distinct feeling of walking on real grass.
Benefits of Using Infill
- Give the artificial turf soft, life-like characteristics
- Weighs down the imitation turf to prevent movement and ripples
- Helps drain water
- Prevents UV rays from damaging the synthetic grass
Types of Infill
Listed below are four top-quality infill types found in the best synthetic turf and high-quality artificial grass.
Silica Sand is best for Low Traffic Areas such as hills, balconies, and decks.
Rubber or Sand Rubber
Rubber or Sand Rubber is used for High Traffic Areas such as lawns, athletic fields, and playgrounds.
Durafill Sand is for High Traffic Areas but is also children and pet friendly. It is used for lawns, athletic fields, playgrounds, dog runs, pet training areas, and play areas.

Why Choose Fake Grass Over Natural Grass?
Natural grass needs ongoing maintenance to stay lush and green all year long. It requires frequent watering, fertilizing, pest control, and mowing, which can be expensive and time-consuming. Artificial grass needs NO maintenance to stay lush and green throughout the year.
Just imagine for a minute, having a stunning backyard that requires NO more watering, seeding, fertilizing, edging, weeding, trimming, or time wasted mowing, raking, aerating, etc. When the leaves start falling, all you need to do is sweep them up; yes, sweep them up with a broom!
No more worrying about how your lawn looks. In fact, with artificial grass, your neighbor will be envious of your beautiful outdoor space! Furthermore, you’ll have more time to enjoy your yard, entertain guests, and spend time with family. Even the family pet will thank you for choosing the Smart Scapes LLC artificial grass option!
