Forget natural Grass

People love to have natural grass in their backyard. Homeowners think a lawn having natural grass is a status symbol. However, those days were the belief of yesteryears.  Nowadays, the expansive lawns have fake grass installed. It takes the property value up and is useful for outdoor functional spaces. Tiny backyard space is a premium space and having a natural grass lawn is a waste.  Besides, the lawn maintenance tools cannot justify your tiny backyard.  Thus, in a tiny backyard, to have a small patch of grass for your pets or children is easy to accomplish with fake grass or artificial turf.
Using fake grass offers a stable ground cover. It is at a level for play areas. It is easy to clean using pets. At the same time, a tiny backyard enjoys the benefit of a fake grass patch in shady areas or under a tree. There is no need to worry about affecting your yard areas or about water running off.
