3 Creative Ways To Use Roof Turf on Your Rooftop Patio

Converting unusable rooftop space into a level, functional roof deck is a popular building design trend in cities today. From relaxing patio areas to fun rooftop pools, there are virtually endless ways that you can use your roof deck when you invest in rooftop deck pavers. 

One way that urban businesses are increasing their property value and their appeal to clients is through the use of rooftop turf. By combining Tile Tech’s outdoor pavers, adjustable pedestals, and artificial grass products, even the tallest city skyscraper can become a grassy outdoor oasis. Here are three unique ways that you can use rooftop turf to elevate your roof deck and attract more guests than ever before.

1. Design an Urban Oasis

When it comes to city real estate, space is at a premium. Finding new and unique ways to utilize your existing space, both inside and outside, is crucial for any property owner. By turning your rooftop into a usable roof deck for guests to enjoy, you can create a rare private outdoor space that provides a reprieve from the endless concrete of the city.

Rooftop turf adds a pop of greenery to your outdoor space, an even greater rarity in the densely-packed city. By incorporating the beauty of nature in a space where natural beauty is often lacking, you can make your property more enjoyable for yourself, your family, your tenants, or your clients. You can create a dining area, a bocce ball court, a dog run, or just a place to sit back and relax. No matter what you do with the space, adding rooftop turf to create a beautiful roof deck is a guaranteed improvement and investment in your property.

2. Elevate Your Rooftop Pool Deck

If you have a rooftop pool, artificial grass is the premier choice for your pool deck material. Unlike more common materials like concrete and stone, rooftop turf is slip-resistant and cooler underfoot, making it both safer and more enjoyable for all who visit.

Synthetic grass is also incredibly efficient at draining away water. High-quality artificial turf can drain at a rate of more than 30 inches per hour per square yard, guaranteeing that your pool deck dries in a matter of minutes and can be enjoyed year-round.

3. Create an Eco-Friendly Green Roof

If you want to maximize greenery and minimize maintenance, rooftop turf is the ideal basis for an eco-friendly rooftop garden. Whereas natural plants and grass require daily watering and constant maintenance, artificial grass for your roof deck never needs to be mowed, fertilized, or watered to remain evergreen. This makes it a low-maintenance option that allows you to save thousands of gallons of water every year.

If you still love having natural plants on your rooftop, roof turf can be easily combined with our green roof plant trays to create the ultimate garden that combines low-maintenance walkway grass with beautiful, fragrant flowers and plants. Having natural flowers and plants also allows you to reduce the heat island effect and improve the surrounding air quality, further making your property eco-friendly and enjoyable. No matter what you’re envisioning for your garden, Tile Tech’s roof turf and plant trays can make it a reality thanks to their versatility.
