Just as there are many types of Artificial Grass, there’s a lot of ways to use artificial grass creating awesome spaces and artefacts (we like to call them ARTificial grass… see what we did there??). Many of our clients ask what can be done with the “left over” grass after we have installed the artificial lawn in their gardens, others would like to see if they can do something good with the offcuts. So we decided to list the 25 unique ways to use artificial grass, so you can get creative with your artificial grass leftovers!
1. Reupholster your garden furniture
First of the 25 ways to use artificial grass is furniture. Not only will this artificial grass upholstery look fantastic, it is comfy too! Nice and soft seats, and with very little maintenance required, PLUS it will instantly match your outdoor decor! 🙂
It is not only you who will enjoy your new outdoor furniture, we are pretty sure your pets will love it too!
2. Make a new rug for your living room
Rugs can be expensive! Moreover, they are high maintenance! How many times have you spilled something on your rug, wine, pizza, ice cream (sounds like you had a great night in!). If only you had an artificial grass rug. You could simply take it outside, hose it off and continue your Netflix sesh without a worry! Now you could’t do that with your old traditional rug could you! Plus, it would be so original! It would be a great icebreaker for sure!
3. Matching cushions
Ok, so you have your rug, and your chair, now you need some matching cushions to finish it all off! Again… so simple to make from your artificial grass cut offs and such a decorative feature both inside and outside of the home! You would need to fill them up with an actual cushion though so they are nice and soft, but any old pillow will do! Or perhaps you have some old underlay or shock padding left too, then fill em up with that to get the desired results!
4. Awesome table runner
A fresh and green table runner is something everyone needs right? Mine always get so dirty though after a lovely dinner with friends (my friends are kinda messy, I must admit!) but with this lovely table runner, all I need to do it run it under the tap and it is as good as new again! It’s a win-win!!
5. Cats love artificial grass!
Does your furry friend like to scratch things? Then this item is a great alternative to plants! This artificial scratch pole will make your little tinkles feel right at home, plus, it looks great in your property, both inside and outside, so it will not disturb any feng-shuing you had going on!
6. Add some matching place settings
Wow, we’re going all the way here aren’t we?? And why not I say! Artificial grass should be embraced, should be everywhere and loved by all! … ok, sorry, I got a little too over excited there, but will you just look at these cute place settings! Who wouldn’t want these in their house!
7. Spice up your wardrobe
Now who would NOT want to be seen in this sophisticated yet playful number from the GRASSify collection?? We certainly would! You can, of course, make your own from your leftover artificial grass, or ask the designers at GRASSify to make you a bespoke fitted jacket. They are so ahead of their time don’t you think?
8. Get matching foot-ware
Well if you’re going to be a fashionista about it, then yes, please go all the way and match your outfit with these comfy and oh-so fashionable clogs. They are all the rage these days, and very easy to manufacture at home using some superglue and your left over artificial grass!
9. Step into something more comfy!
Clogs not really your thing? Why not try the same but then using your flip-flops! It’s like walking on freshly cut grass all year round from the moment you put them on! Now if this won’t improve your mood, we don’t know what will!
10. Drive around in style!
Now this idea is sure to make heads turn all the way to the bank (or supermarket, or cinema, where was it you were going?). All you need is a bit of heat /water / wind resistant super sticky glue (seriously, make sure it sticks, we don’t need any accidents now) and your leftover artificial grass and you’ll be the talk of the town! (for all the right reasons of course!)
11. Drive around in style! (VO2)
Or, if you’re under 18 and not yet have a car, or you just love driving around on your moped then this one might fit you better! Again, make sure the artificial grass sticks properly, and we’re pretty sure this is not legal in all countries, so let’s just say we’ve warned you! :)
12. Drive around in style! (VO3)
Oh, you’re more of a sporty type are you? Good for you! 🙂 Then we have this little green example. You will fit right in when crossing around in the hillsides! But don’t forget where you left your bike! The camouflage is pretty accurate and we don’t want you to loose your bike in the middle of a field!
13. Just go nuts!
So this example is a little extreme, but for those of you that are super fanatic about their artificial grass, you will love this one. Just stick the green stuff everywhere! On your walls, your floors, your furniture, and really create a super green natural environment in your home, or office. You could even get a couple of plush rabbits, sheep and perhaps a cow and you’re done! It’s like living on a farm but without all the hard work! Result!
14. Make a doormat
We like to call this a little “taster” of all the green goodness that’s to come once you enter this door… you might call it a doormat. Whatever you call it, you will love it the same. This doormat will not only brighten up your home, they are so easy to clean! And very cost effective!
15. Something for the fish
Aside from decorating your own home with artificial grass, what about the home of your beloved pet fish?
