Information in this post was provided by Capitol Turf Pros, an artificial turf installation company that serves Annapolis and nearby areas in Maryland.

Artificial turf can be used for more than just backyard putting greens. While those are some of the most popular uses for turf, there are a lot of ways you can use turf in your own yard. In addition to backyard putting greens, you can install turf in your yard for:

  • Pet areas
  • Playgrounds or play areas
  • Patios
  • Pool decks
  • And more


Pet Areas

Turf provides a great, low-maintenance area for your dog(s). You know how much your dog can dig up your yard and destroy it, but artificial turf eliminates this problem.

Playgrounds or Play Areas

If you have young children and a playground or play area in your backyard, installing turf is a great idea. It’s safe, sanitary, and certified for up to 12-foot critical head fall, in compliance with CPSC guidelines.


Artificial turf can help spruce up your patio or deck and enhance your entire outdoor living space. Whether you want a turf area in the corner or turf installed between the pavers, it adds distinct beauty and makes walking around barefoot more comfortable!

Pool Decks

Because of its moisture resistance, turf is less slippery than stone and, therefore, provides the perfect material for pool decks and poolside areas. Turf can make your backyard pool area not only safer but cleaner as well.


Turf can also be used for terraces, flat roofs, balconies, and more. In short, artificial turf is durable, low-maintenance, and safe and can be used in a variety of ways in your yard.
