Those who seek to revamp their landscaping sometimes find it hard to go beyond what they already know. Yet, there are a variety of creative options homeowners can do to dress up their yard and many of those include artificial synthetic grass.
When people think of synthetic grass, they envision the whole yard being redone with it. That is certainly a good option. It looks great and saves you money over a decade. It conserves water and reduces pests.
However, there are many more uses for artificial grass. Whether you have a small space or want a little something extra for your patio or porch, synthetic grass can provide you with a low-maintenance solution.
Small Space or No Space
Artificial grass can be used to create a green space on a balcony or patio. Adding some potted plants and a lounge chair makes for a serene spot to read or relax after work. It can be used over concrete too, so that makes it a natural solution for homes or apartments with flat roofs.
Another creative option is to put it over concrete steps or seating for a more natural look. It adds more cushion for feet and bottoms too.
You can install synthetic grass in a small garden bed with other decorative items like rocks, flowers, and lawn décor. This gives you a great courtyard feel even with a small space.
A positive feature of synthetic grass is that it comes in a variety of shades. This helps an artistic landscaper or homeowner to create lawn displays that are viewed as art. Some options are chess boards, crop circle type designs, or geometric designs. Some also mix up artificial grass with concrete or rocks for the same effect.
Synthetic grass can be used to create unique and interesting pathways through your yard or garden. You can use the different shade for effect and it can be cut in any size and shape to fit your needs.
Synthetic grass can be used on small objects to carry on out a natural theme throughout your yard, patio and porch areas. You can secure it around planters and small tables. One of the best uses is to connect it to retaining or border walls and even a partition.
The great thing about using artificial grass for these type of landscaping options is that it doesn’t hold water, so you won’t have a mess. It’s super easy to clean too and typically only requires a cloth and a spray hose.
The best part of using artificial turf is that it is a low-maintenance option, so you can spend more time enjoying your lawn rather than maintaining it.
Thinking about synthetic grass differently may take some getting used to, but it will mean a fresh look for your yard. It’s a look that will impress both your family and any guests you entertain.
