    What is your roof made of? tile? shingle? Why would you want artificial grass on roof in the first place? It will hold moisture and tend to turn to mold or algae and never let the shingle, tile or underlayment dry out eventually causing roof damage. VERY expensive to replace a roof for the sake of artificial grass.

    depends what your base is. I had a rubber flat roof. water seeped in under the rubber. rotted out the whole roof. had to have the roof and ceiling torn off an redone.

  • Not if there is proper drainage in place. If there is not enough sun on the area, it might get moldy. If the area gets enough sun, a perfect solution for a rooftop space. Enjoy!

    Could be if you do not get seams sealed well or edging where water can accumulate and cause mildew,mold,roofing &/or balcony material to begin to rot. info. https://syntheticgrasswarehouse.com/roof-top-balcony-installations/ more info. to consider pros cons https://www.installitdirect.com/learn/artificial-grass-rooftop-deck/

    Thank you everyone for the prompt answer. I have a tiled terrace, but it looks very boring. I thought adding an element of green would make it look better. Please suggest alternate ways to doing up my terrace garden
