Artificial "grass" is junk, IMO. My only experience with it was a
door-mat, which always wanted to blow away. We have a few spots around
the building where nothing, or very little, will grow. We used
landscape cloth and river rock to cover them; some also have large
stepping stones in the area. Very few weeds, water drains fine through
landscape cloth. You can stick some shade loving plants in the area, or
put pots on it. Much nicer than plastic :o) I do not like lava rock,
for a number of reasons, which is also used as ground cover. River rock
stays in place if you use leaf blower to clean it off, unlike lava r.
The area is still usable, as chairs or barbecue can be placed on it.
