Pool Area Landscaping Solutions — Artificial Grass Around Pool

Traditionally, most in-ground swimming pool decks are made of concrete or other hard materials. Concrete is expensive, tile is dangerously slippery when wet, wood decking requires a ton of maintenance, and pavers take a lot of elbow grease to keep up. A natural-looking synthetic grass extending around your pool offers the beauty and functionality that other pool decking materials can’t compete with, making artificial grass the best choice for swimming pool area landscaping.

Will the chemicals in pool water damage artificial grass?

Quality artificial grass will not be affected or become discolored when it’s exposed to pool water. It will stand up to chlorine and salt and drain it safely into the sub-layer underneath. Alternatively, natural grass can be burned by the chemicals in pool water, making it very hard to regrow if it absorbs water that contains chlorine and salt.

Can I put tables, chairs, or umbrellas on artificial grass?

Absolutely, artificial turf can handle a lot of weight. It’s similar to carpet in how it reacts to objects being placed on it. A large flat surface will press the grass fibers down and will bounce back when the object is removed. A chair leg or table leg may leave a temporary mark but if it’s going to be used long term we suggest using a mat or something similar.

Can I put an above ground pool on top of artificial grass?

Yes. An above-ground pool filled with water weighs a lot but as long as the sub-layer was prepared properly the artificial grass will not be damaged or have any problems holding the weight. The grass blades will flatten under the pool and should rebound quite nicely if the pool is ever drained or moved.

Is artificial grass around pools slippery when wet?

Artificial grass is designed to be non-slip and with our industry-leading “Cascade Backing” turf drainage system, it won’t hold water which means it will dry out very fast in the sun. When compared to natural grass that can retain water, form puddles, or become muddy, synthetic grass is superior from a safety perspective with regards to slips and falls around a pool.

How much does artificial grass around pools cost?

The cost of artificial grass varies depending on a number of factors. Think of it as an asset and investment that will increase the value of your property. Unlike most home improvement projects, artificial grass installed by Ideal Turf will pay for itself in a few years!

For instance, say you spend $200 per month on landscaping and watering costs… that’s $2,400 a year. Over five years, your cost is $12,000. The average Ideal Turf lawn can be installed for much less than this!

Can artificial grass be installed indoors as well as outdoors?


Absolutely… Ideal Turf offers both indoor and outdoor artificial grass installation for residential and commercial applications.

How long does artificial grass around pools last?

Our turf products have a 20-25 year life expectancy. Our warranty guarantees that it won’t fade or fall apart and that it will look great for years to come!

Can artificial grass stand up to the constant heat of Texas summers?

Yes, artificial grass can handle the Texas summer heat!

Artificial grass has advanced significantly in recent years and the synthetic turf products that are produced today feature UV resistant materials and components that give it a high heat and fire rating. It won’t discolor from the UV rays from the sun and it will hold its color even when exposed to chlorine and salt.
