In this contemporary design, the artificial grass looks natural and vibrant and is an attractive alternative to a deck or concrete slab. Artificial grass is ideal if you're short on space; there's no need to find space to store a mower. Living grass would struggle here due to the shade cast by the surrounding buildings, the trees in pots, and the trellis system and would also require about 4 inches (10cm) of topsoil, which would put weight load stress on the structure of the building.
