Garden Design Ideas That Don’t Involve Planting Anything
One of the biggest motivators that draw people towards artificial grass is the ease of maintenance and the fact that it requires very little in the way of care throughout the year. As a result, we have found that many artificial grass clients in Brentwood and other areas of Essex are becoming increasingly interested in garden design solutions and ideas which emanate this same convenience, steering away from plants and flower beds and towards other more modern design concepts which render their outside space usable and aesthetically pleasing all year round.
In this blog, we’re sharing a few ideas and design styles that we’ve seen across client homes and gardens in Brentwood – starting with a few different ways of integrating outdoor buildings into the presentation of your garden space.
Turn A Shed Or Garage Wall Into A Garden Feature
There has been a huge rise in popularity in recent years of outdoor mirrors and other artistic and creative display pieces which put a spotlight on outdoor surfaces and walls. From painting your garage or shed wall in neutral colours to compliment a modern setting with patio paving and artificial grass in Brentwood, to hanging a vast mirror on an exterior wall to make a small and compact garden feel bigger and brighter, accessories can bridge the gap between your inside and outside space and create a harmonious balance between the two.
Create An Outdoor Bar Or Functional Space That Suits Your Lifestyle
What better way to make the most of your newly manicured artificial lawn than with a few accessories that elevate your garden according to your lifestyle?
This could be an outdoor bar, it could be a kid’s playhouse, or it could be an area of decking or patio which serves as an outdoor lounge area or dining space. Whatever it is, recreating your garden so that it reflects the way you want to use your outdoor space is one of the best ways to maximise its potential and ensure that you enjoy the year-round green lawn that you’ve installed.
Install Trellises And Hanging Baskets
One of the best ways of benefitting from natural plants without digging into the soil and affecting the look of your artificial grass is with plants which don’t need to be dug into the ground itself. Hanging baskets are an excellent example of this, offering versatility and flexibility in terms of look and placement. Trellises are more permanent in that once they’ve established themselves then they cannot be moved easily – however, the aesthetic value of a vine plant which grows upwards adds extra layers to your garden space and provides a perfect alternative to bland fence panels and shed walls.
All of these ideas and more are designed to compliment the look of your artificial grass, ensuring that your garden remains somewhere natural that you can enjoy all year round without creating too much work for yourself.
