Can you put an inflatable pool on artificial grass?

One of the most common places where artificial grass is usually installed is in patios and gardens of private homes. During the summer, many people consider installing an inflatable pool to enjoy this outdoor area more and escape the heat. If this is your case, but you have doubts about its viability or you wonder if the artificial grass will support the weight without deforming, keep reading.

Preparing the ground


Before installing your inflatable pool you should make sure of a few things. First of all, it is very important that the ground is firm and resistant. On the other hand, you must remove any obstacle that may interfere with the stability of the pool (branches, stones, etc.), so that it is as level and straight as possible. Once this is done, choose the place where you are going to install it and follow the instructions on the manufacturer to correctly assemble your inflatable pool.

How to prevent artificial grass from being damaged when installing a pool

Inflatable pools are a comfortable alternative, easy to install and at a more affordable price than brick-built pools. In addition, they adapt very well to artificial grass.

The main question that usually arises regarding them is whether they will leave a mark once they are removed (it is normal to remove them during the winter months), or if the artificial grass will deform when so much weight is applied to it. The answer is no.
First of all, we must remember that, in order to enjoy artificial grass for as long as possible, whatever its use and the area in which we are going to install it, it must be of the highest quality possible. If not, we risk it deteriorating easily.

If your artificial grass is good, you won’t have to worry about putting a removable pool on it. When the summer ends and you remove it, you will notice that the grass has been crushed and the fibers will be crushed by the weight of the water.
The first thing you should do to return it to its original state is to let it cool.
Temper it a little, once you have removed the pool. Afterwards, all you have to do is brush the area gently in the opposite direction to the fibers. These will rise and regain their shape. To do this, we recommend having a specific grass brush that helps you keep the grass straight and soft.

On some occasions it may be necessary to use silica sand to help make the fibers more stable, upright and voluminous, giving the grass a more aesthetic and natural appearance. By following these steps, your artificial grass will be as perfect as the first day and you will be able to continue using it and enjoying it for the rest of the year.

Although the weight of the pool itself or the time it remains on it does not
pose a threat to the stability of the artificial grass, if there is a factor that you should take into account. You should avoid moving or dragging the inflatable pool, as this action can cause the grass fibers to weaken or even break. And this could leave consequences on your artificial grass.

The size or weight of the pool will not influence its recovery ability. No
It does not matter if it has more or less liters of water because, if the grass is of good quality and you do not drag the pool, it will be like new again when you remove it and brush it.

What is the best artificial grass for places with swimming pools?

However, not all artificial grass models are moldable or have the same recovery capacity. Let’s look at some features it should have:

– Quality. As we have mentioned previously, the quality of the grass will influence
much when it comes to returning to its natural state after removing the
inflatable pool Therefore, make sure you choose a model that is sufficiently

– Density. Ideally, it should be medium-high, so that it lasts as well as possible.
both the weight of the pool and the footprints.

– Fiber height. It is advisable that it be medium grain, about 30-40 mm.
In addition to taking these three main characteristics into account, most artificial grass models are completely suitable for installation in open spaces with a swimming pool since they are:

– Resistant to the sun and inclement weather.
– They do not wear out or deteriorate due to chlorine or saltpeter.
– They have a drainage system that prevents flooding.

As we always recommend, before deciding to install one type or another of
artificial grass, the ideal is to consult with a specialized professional who can guide you. Thus, in the long run, you will be able to enjoy good, quality grass for many years.
