When you’re struggling to grow a thick green lawn, it’s easy to give up, especially when the turf is so green in your neighbor’s yard.
However, the problem might be that your lot is too rocky, sloppy, or shady to sustain perfect growth.
Whatever reason hinders perfect growth in your yard, it shouldn’t deter you from having a beautiful yard. For one, there can be beauty in less grass.
Here are some ideas you can work with:
- Go for a raised garden
Raised planters are perfect; you’re essentially not planting into the soil, which reduces the hassle of weeding and tilling. Plus, raised beds will require less water, and you can do anything with them, including plant vegetables, flowers, and even ornamental grass.
- Put in a patio
Consider a patio installation for an extra lounge area when you can’t grow turf. You can use patio pavers, natural stone, or even stamped concrete to make a stunning, strong, and functional patio space.
Then surround your patio with some greenery in potted plants, colorful flowers, and some ornamental grasses to brighten up the space.
- Consider a moss garden
Planting a moss garden may be the next best idea if you still desire a lush green lawn in your not-so-favorable lot. Moss doesn’t need weeding or watering, but it will look green and lovely in any condition.
- Add a water feature
For an easy maintenance yard, you can consider replacing some of your grass with a beautiful fountain, pond, or other water feature. A water feature also creates an exciting and impressive focal point.
- Fake it with an artificial turf
Fake grass is another way of achieving a green lawn without too much hassle since the artificial turf will always be green.
