Can You Lay Artificial Grass Next To Real Turf In San Diego?

Can You Lay Artificial Grass Next To Real Turf In San Diego?Real and artificial grass have similarities and differences. Although artificial grass looks and feels real, some people prefer natural grass. We’re often asked if fake grass may be laid adjacent to genuine grass. If you’re curious about laying turf close to existing grass, keep reading. 

Can Artificial And Natural Grass Coexist? 

Yes, artificial and natural grass may coexist. There are various reasons why someone might wish to do this, like wanting a low-maintenance lawn to rest or play on or a real grass for biodiversity or a dining area. Whatever the cause, two surfaces can be paired. 

Adding Turf To An Existing Lawn 

Mixing synthetic and real grass requires careful installation. We prefer our professional installation team for those in our southeast catchment region, but many of our clients live across San Diego and must use our DIY installation guide. If you want to accomplish this but maintain natural turf, consider the following. 

Install fake grass as usual first. This includes natural grass or gravel. You must put a base of granite dust and add edging. We propose dividing real and synthetic grass with a border or edging. Because your real lawn will require cutting, you don’t want to accidently cut your artificial grass. You may choose brick edging to create a distinct zone. Install your choice now. 

Place a weed membrane under your artificial grass, then cut it to size. After making neat joins, spread kiln-dried sand on the lawn and brush it through. 

Should Natural And Fake Lawn Be Mixed? 

Artificial lawns are soft, natural-looking, and excellent for pets and children, but they’re also low-maintenance. This means you can use your yard without mixing surfaces. 

Combining the two could be extra work because you’ll need to keep up with your natural lawn and make sure it doesn’t interfere with your artificial lawn. Natural lawns can get muddy and sloppy in winter, and you don’t want that on your synthetic turf. 


Renovating your garden is a huge decision that requires careful planning. If you’re not sure if artificial grass is best for you, call us and we’ll help you discover a solution. 


We can discuss the types of artificial grass we provide, present an installation price, and discuss payment alternatives if needed. For further information about laying turf near to existing grass, phone Artificial Grass Pros at (619) 332-1177.
