Creative Ways to Complement Your Artificial Lawn
Homeowners and businesses are switching to artificial grass due to its cost-effectiveness and aesthetic value. Artificial turf has many practical benefits, such as reduced monthly costs, water conservation, evergreen appearance, and virtually no maintenance requirements.
It is, therefore, an excellent option for those who want a low-maintenance lawn that always looks green and lush. But just because it is synthetic does not mean it has to look fake.
With the right accessories and design elements, you can create a beautiful outdoor space that’s both practical and visually appealing. This article will walk you through a few creative ways to complement your artificial turf lawn.
Plant Perennials and Annuals
Planting a mixture of annual and perennial flowers allows your landscape to remain beautiful all year. For instance, brightly colored annuals like Vinca blooms in a range of purple and pink tones from the beginning of summer till early winter.
On the other hand, perennials are ideal for warmer climates because they are typically susceptible to freezing. Most gardeners like Vinca major perennial because it spreads easily, grows to a height of inches, and yields blue flowers in the spring.
Add Colorful and Low-maintenance Plants
Synthetic grass supplemented with water-efficient and low-maintenance plants can help you save a ton of money and time on your landscaping projects, whether you live in a dry environment or are simply trying to be water cautious.
For instance, the powderpuff is a low-maintenance plant that blooms with gorgeous pink flowers that resemble a powderpuff. This drought-tolerant perennial can be pruned easily, loves the sun, and makes an excellent border for your garden.
Bee balm, on the other hand, is a vibrant, colorful, and aromatic bloom that draws bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds to your garden. Plus, it also grows faster in optimum conditions.
During summer, when the air is driest and plants and flowers start to fade, these tall perennials blossom.
Incorporate Outdoor Furniture and Accessories
Another way to add visual interest and make your artificial lawn feel more like a real outdoor space is to incorporate outdoor furniture and accessories. This could include patio furniture, outdoor rugs, and decorative pillows. Choose items that complement the color of your artificial turf and add a personal touch to your space.
Create Landscaping That Will Improve the Appearance of The Home
Artificial turf can be vital to improving the aesthetics of your environment. Besides the turf, you need to have a design and structure that will help bring attention to focal spots across your space.
Landscaping design can produce a visually appealing or tranquil area. You can also cut and shape small sections of the turf and place them under larger portions of sculptures and statuary.
Artificial turf can also be shaped into “pavers” or stepping stones that can be used to guide people across a bigger space, such as a pool surround.
Use Lighting to Create a Warm and Inviting Atmosphere
Outdoor lighting is important in any outdoor space and can make your artificial turf lawn shine. Consider using lanterns, string lights, or solar-powered lights to add a warm and inviting atmosphere to your space. You can also use lighting to highlight certain lawn areas, such as a seating area or a path.
Create a Play Area for Your Dog
If your backyard has more concrete than grass, consider giving your dog a more comfortable area to play and relax.
You can cover any surface with artificial grass to make it appear more attractive and natural. Concrete surfaces tend to hurt your dog’s pads and chip its nails. Since artificial turf resembles natural grass, your dog will enjoy rolling about its surface.
You can easily clean artificial turf with a hose and soapy water, and you won’t ever have to worry about your dog bringing mud inside.
Install a Bocce Ball Court
Bocce ball is an American team sport played by over 25 million Americans annually, making it an everyday backyard activity. You can set up a bocce ball court in your backyard using artificial grass and play whenever you desire.
Although this game is often played on concrete or sand, artificial turf is becoming popular because it provides a smooth and level playing field. Contrary to other surface options, bocce ball courts are installed with a sturdy underlayer of concrete that maintains the artificial grass level and is intact for long.
Add a Little Green on The Balcony
The balcony is the ideal place to embellish with synthetic grass. An easy-to-maintain green balcony will rapidly become the preferred gathering place. Combine it with greenery, a hammock, and wooden furniture for a tranquil getaway. With artificial grass, your balcony can also turn into a safe play area for your pet and children due to its hypoallergenic, non-toxic, and shock-absorbent nature.
Create a Backyard Putting Green
You won’t have to go to a driving range or pay money to practice your swing. You can convert any patio space into a tiny putting green where you can hone your skills away from the golf course.
Look for sand-filled and short-trimmed artificial turf for simple installation and level putting across the surface. Ten minutes a day of chipping and putting practice can lower your handicap and make it difficult to beat on course.
Install a Water Feature
Another way to add interest to your backyard is to install a water feature, such as a fountain or small pond. The sound of flowing water will add a peaceful and soothing element to your space, and the presence of water will attract birds to your backyard.
Plant Trees and Shrubs
Adding trees can also help add variety to your yard. Choose evergreen trees that maintain needles or leaves during winter. Great examples of shrubs that produce blooming flowers while requiring little water include Turk’s Cap and Lantana.
There is no limit to styling your outdoor space with artificial grass. However, the color and texture of the turf chosen can have a significant effect on the visual appeal of your yard. Get in touch with us for the best artificial turf to remodel your home’s exterior.
