In 1950s, the artificial turf was first developed to encourage young people in urban areas to get fit and active.
Several years after, the technology was improved and we saw artificial grass installation in Los Angeles and the rest of Southern California lawns as a water-saving solution. It’s even used to create synthetic turf putting greens.
These days, the artificial turf is also set indoors. Green is said to be the color for growth, harmony, and renewal, helping reduce the stress associated in modern living. Do you agree? Let’s take a look how artificial grass is used in designing indoor spaces.
Alternative to carpet
Bringing a new sense of calm and peace to the workplace environment. Where a view outdoors may not be always present, there’s the artificial grass ready to lend a relaxing ambiance.
Putting up green walls
When growing climbing vines and plants isn’t possible, or when wallpapers or plain wall paint no longer seem appealing to you, take inspiration from this look. Artificial turf providing a green, refreshing backdrop, complementing the purpose the room serves – play and relaxation.
Decorating trade show booths
If you want to achieve a laid back look, you may want to consider integrating artificial grass to your trade show booth design.

Designing event venue
Make your event venue stand out with artificial grass installation. The new artificial turf makes a soft landing surface for feet, resembling the look and feel of natural grass. Even when you’re celebrating indoors, you can still bring in a breath of fresh air to the event venue by designing with artificial grass.
