I recently laid down down synthetic turf to my once ugly concrete balcony. The new grass is so comfortable to walk on and I can now go out there without coming back inside with black feet! I looks great too and has really improved the feel of the whole apartment.
It's super easy to do and not very expensive. Below are some breif guidelines as to how I did it in about an hours time!
Step 1: Measure up your area
Step 2: Go into your local bunnings store and buy some synthetic turf (it comes in a variety of different looks and terxtures depending on your budget and can be purchased in rolls or cut to size). Also buy some artificial grass adhesive and a stanley knife if you dont already have one
Step 3: Cut your pieces of grass in sections depending on your area.
Step 4: Apply adhesive to the surface and place sections of grass in place. You dont have to use too much, just a dab every 20-30cms.
Step 5: Wait an hour or so for the adhesive to dry
Step 6: Crack a cold beer in your new outdoor area!
Great job @JoshRaf, many thanks for sharing.

Interesting enough the MBA ran courses on its importance for their members
unfortunately now the Battlers & Punters are left to do their own waterproofing!
