Fantastic artificial grass ideas for your garden
Why choose artificial grass for your garden?
Quite simply, the best reason to lay artificial grass in your garden is because it doesn’t need any looking after. By replacing lawn with artificial grass, you can wave goodbye to struggling with the lawn mower every other weekend, sinking into mud every time it rains and worrying about ugly dead patches. Instead, you’ll be able to sit back and relax in your garden, surrounded by perfectly green, gorgeously realistic artificial grass that never needs cutting.
How to use artificial grass in your garden
Give your kids their own playground
Artificial grass is incredibly robust which means it can take a real hammering from running feet and playing apparatus and still look great. Try laying artificial grass in a dedicated section of your garden for swings and slides so your little ones can have the run of the area without you worrying about the lawn developing muddy patches.
Build a stunning rockery
Add interest to your garden by contrasting the smooth artificial lawn with a rockery. The different colours of the pebbles, stones and rocks will contrast beautifully with the vibrant green and can be softened with the right choice of alpine plants.
A colourful alternative to paving
Lots of gardens in the UK are limited on space and so it can be tempting to just pave over the lawn despite losing the wonderful green surface. With artificial grass however, you can have all the low maintenance benefits of paving but with all the beauty of grass – it really is the best of both worlds.
Create natural looking steppingstones
Artificial grass steppingstones look fantastic when dotted over gravel driveways and paths or around real stone paving. They’re also ideal for when you’d like to draw attention to a particularly lovely feature of your garden, such as a statue, summer house or tree, as your eye will naturally follow the bright green dots.
