“Is artificial grass ok to use around a pool?” I saw this question raised by a netizen on a forum. At that time, a man was building a home in Southern California. He has a house with a swimming pool in front and wants grass around the pool. The man asked everyone around him, and the answer he got didn’t recommend him to use grass. So he started asking if artificial grass is ok to use around a pool.

Today, let us discuss this question.

Artificial grass around a pool is a low maintenance floor covering for the pool area, not only you get the look and feel of real turf, but you also improve the safety of your pool deck and pool area. Why do most people suggest using stones? That’s because traditionally most in-ground pool decks are made of concrete or other hard materials. Tile can be slippery and dangerous when wet.

Wood floors require a lot of maintenance, and stones take a lot of elbow grease. At this point, have you found that artificial grass has become the best choice for the pool area? You’ll enjoy the soft grass under your feet and the lush, soft, natural-looking ground cover.

Not enough? Let’s take a look at other advantages of artificial grass around a pool!

Safety & Eco-friendly

Safety & Eco-friendly

I believe everyone agrees that safety should be the most important thing. Fortunately, artificial grass is 100% safe. In fact, it could be safer than natural grass!

All CCGrass products have passed health tests including REACH, RoHS, DIN, EN71-3, ASTM, etc. which can prove our artificial grass doesn’t contain any harmful components. CCGrass is very strict in the choice of raw material. With our artificial grass, you don’t need to worry about the safety of your children and pets.

Also, artificial grass is not only non-toxic, but also non-allergenic. Many children and pets are allergic to grass pollen. CCGrass uses anti-bacteria technology that artificial turf will not produce pollen and other bacteria, so children and pets are healthy to play on it. What’s more, the artificial grass can protect children from falls of up to 5 feet, which is a major improvement over artificial grass.

We take our environmental responsibility very seriously. When the maintenance equipment for real grass, like gas-powered lawnmowers, are reported by the environmental protests as big polluters, producing a massive number of pollutants like carbon monoxide. Artificial grass needs no maintenance like edgers or mowers. It’s non-toxic and environmentally friendly, making it the perfect choice to install.

Artificial grass is great for any location and is completely customizable to your installation. It only requires simple maintenance for long-time use.

If you plan on placing an above-ground pool on your lawn, it is imperative that you consult your artificial turf installer to discuss potential issues with the weight. You need to confirm that once the pool is filled with water, the surface will provide a solid foundation that can withstand the immense weight.
