Landscaping Ideas for Gardens with No Grass

Landscaping Ideas for Gardens with No Grass

While well-kept lawns are undeniably beautiful (and a must-have for many) they can also be quite high maintenance. Lots of gardens these days don’t actually have a lawn, leaving homeowners to be creative with their landscaping. You may be wondering how you can landscape a garden that has no grass? Read on for some ideas.

If you like the idea of a lawn but you don’t want to maintain it, you could consider artificial grass. You don’t have to mow it or water it and it’s great if you have kids or a dog and don’t want mud trailing through your house. It’s also ideal if you tend to suffer from hay fever.

However, if you have decided that a lawn isn’t right for you, you might want to find another way to add some greenery or colour, because otherwise your garden will look a little bland. You could add some planters and hanging baskets, or even go as far as building a DIY allotment. This is great way to add some colour to your garden and is a practical use of the space. You could think about using railway sleepers to build your allotment and keep it all neat and tidy.

Perhaps you like to dine alfresco or host garden parties and BBQs during the warmer summer months? If so, a nice decking or paving area is a great option. With stylish furniture and some atmospheric lighting, you can create a really tasteful, trendy space. Aside from keeping them clean, a patio or decking area are pretty low maintenance.

A well maintained garden will help add value to your property, which is excellent news if you’re planning to sell any time in the future. With that said, sprucing up your garden and making it look beautiful is definitely a worthwhile endeavour, both now and in the future when you come to sell.
