Who doesn't want to have a little bit of grass at home, where the scent of nature that flows from it helps us to relax and connect with the environment? Often featuring grass in the home is a bit of a complicated task, however. Caring for a lawn is a lot of responsibility. Those of us who don't have much time on our hands may struggle or perhaps we just don't have the space to plant a garden.
But as with everything, there is always a solution and today is no exception. We bring you some solutions for planting artificial grass in your home and while this isn't the same as having natural grass, artificial grass has its benefits too!
This is why today we are going to show you 12 great ideas from top professionals from around the world, where this material has been used to enhance architecture and design.

As we have mentioned, there are some limitations when it comes to featuring natural grass in our home and one of these is the location of our house. If you live in the city, you will understand that sometimes there just isn't enough space for a full-on garden, yet this doesn't stop us from wanting to relax outdoors feeling one with nature. This is the perfect time to utilise your terrace!
Make the most of this environment by planting AstroTurf on your terrace, which will make this area feel like a small garden inside your home. Merge it with elements such as wood to bring in a bit of a rustic look and feel to the space.
Another limitation can be that you don't have a terrace at your disposal. So why not use synthetic grass inside your living room, impersonating a carpet while giving a touch of greenery to the room?
