Choose Artificial Grass For Commercial Properties

When you think about artificial grass, the first thing that probably comes to mind is football stadiums and perfectly manicured front lawns. But many business and facility managers today are changing to artificial grass for office buildings, malls, hospitals, hotels, and more. It offers a fresh look year-round without the hassle of routine maintenance. Check out some of the top benefits of using artificial grass for commercial spaces and get ideas on how to use it for your property.


ADA Accessible

Shawgrass has turf options that are IPEMA Certified and ADA Accessible so that all customers can easily access the turf. The ADA requires floors to be stable and slip-resistant, and we’ve engineered it perfect for that application. Our synthetic grass is soft and stable enough to handle heavy traffic, including wheelchairs, walkers, canes, and crutches, without the worry of those that struggle with mobility slipping.

Conserves Water

The Environmental Protection Agency estimates about a third of all public water use go to water grass lawns in the United States. Even more water can be used in really dry areas, which causes a significant issue for our freshwater sources. Synthetic grass removes the need for daily watering during dry spells. Instead, you’ll just need to use water occasionally to clean debris or spills. This will help you minimize the negative environmental footprint your business faces.

Low Maintenance

Lawn maintenance can be a costly expense for your business, especially if it’s in an area with high foot traffic. Grass that’s walked on frequently will require reseeding to keep it lush and green. Whether you hire out to maintain your commercial lawn or hire an outside source to do it, you’ll be able to reduce your costs and time spent on maintenance.

Beautiful All The Time

First impressions matter — both in business and your personal life. The appearance of your business is one of the first things that people will see before you can even give clients a chance to see how you might be a good fit for them. An appealing storefront will help you attract more of the right kind of customers. Whether you like it or not, your business is constantly being judged, so if you can keep up appearances, it helps immensely!

Where to Install

Communal Spaces

From buildings to community centers to hotel entrances, artificial grass is a great addition to common areas that get a lot of foot traffic. It will increase the aesthetic appeal without spending time, energy, and money to keep it looking great.

Play Areas

Playgrounds in public parks, private apartments, or public schools are a fantastic way to offer children a beautiful and safe play space. This unique turf system, with engineered padding, can easily be combined with the HydroChill cooling option to provide synthetic turf solutions unparalleled in the industry.

Dog Parks/Kennel Services

If you manage a dog park or kennel service, you know just how quickly dogs can destroy natural grass. They like to dig, run around, and use it as a bathroom. Pet turf is a great solution for areas that dogs will use. Pet grass will keep animals safe from harmful pesticides or fertilizers and is easy to clean.

Swimming Pools

Swimming pool edges can be extremely slippery because of all the water that splashes out. Synthetic grass is perfect for poolsides because it offers optimal drainage and better traction than concrete. Quality turf won’t stain or fade in the sun, even when exposed to pool chemicals. 

Building Entrances

Whether your business is a hotel, a car dealership, or a traditional storefront, artificial grass can give your business a fresh look. As a business owner, you already have a lot going on, so making the initial investment into artificial turf is a fantastic way to take one worry off your plate — lawn maintenance.
