Have you ever looked at somebody’s garden and not only felt envious, but wonder how on earth they have the time to maintain such a perfect lawn?
Even if your garden is small, you still have to spend time mowing and fertilising the grass, watering the plants and much more. The chores do not lessen, and if you do begin to cut corners and avoid gardening, your lawn will soon become a no-go zone.
To prevent this from happening, you need to be creative and make the most out of the space you have available. By following these tips, you will become the one with the lawn others envy and wish they had.
Grass and small spaces
When you have a little garden, it can turn into a gardener’s worst nightmare, mainly if trees cover the majority of your grass. The shade can be your worst enemy as it can cause your garden to become patchy, discoloured and uneven – the opposite of what a perfect lawn should look like.
To avoid this happening, many homeowners who have a smaller garden, turn to artificial grass. Not only does it look like the real thing, but it can keep its colour, texture and appearance for up to 20 years. That’s 20 years of low maintenance gardening! A win-win for all garden owners.
To make your garden look even more appealing, add different colours and seek to maximise your vertical space. Begin by planting tall flowers to utilise your area, and if you’re feeling adventurous, why not grow a few vegetables as well?!
By playing with the shape of your lawn, you can trick the eye into believing space is more significant than what it is. A circular lawn in a square garden can leave the edges to be made into a curved path which will give the illusion that there is more space, or you could add decking for extra seating room.
Even though you want to maximise the space you have available, avoid clutter building up. One way to prevent this from happening is by picking your garden furniture wisely. By choosing furniture that is easy to fold and put away in the shed, you suddenly have a free and open space to use as and when you wish.
But the question remains, “how do people keep their lawn looking neat and tidy, regardless of the weather, lack of time and time of year?”
We have the answer… Artificial grass.
Artificial grass not only looks perfect all year round, but it also requires minimal maintenance. The only thing you need to do is keep your flower beds in check!
Artificial grass has adapted over time and now not only looks incredibly natural, but fools many into believing it is real grass, so what’s stopping you? Get in touch with Artificial Grass London today, and give yourself an early Christmas present – a present you can enjoy for years to come!
