The daughter's condo has a 4.5x8 ft concrete balcony which came with an astroturf 'carpet'. She recently (and somewhat circumspectly, since all the balconies in the complex sport this fake greenery) spent the weekend cutting the astroturf out in squares. She's now redone the balcony with Ikea decking squares. These 'float' over the concrete, and can be taken up the winter. The balcony is now both better looking and kinder to bare feet!
