Up to 83% of Americans believe it’s important to have a yard, and 90% of those same folks say it’s important that yard is well maintained. Fortunately, you don’t need to mow your lawn every week to have an incredible yard.
Grass isn’t a requirement to have the stylish and chic outdoor space of your dreams. Whether you prefer to skip the grass because the climate’s too dry or because you can’t keep up with the care and upkeep, there are many different options that can give you an incredible grass-free backyard. Alderwood Landscape designers will give your yard a well maintained look without the hassle of upkeep.
Entertain your guests around the fire
Fire pits are one of the most popular hardscaping choices this year and for good reason. A fire pit brings the joys of camping right to your backyard without the tents and mosquitoes. If you love to entertain outdoors year-round, but grass upkeep isn’t in your schedule, consider using pea gravel to cover the ground instead. This look works with built-in fire pits and portable fire pits.
Bring the indoors outdoors
Tile is a great way to replace your grass with a chic alternative. But what can you put on top of the tile to keep it from looking bland?Bringing the indoors outdoors has been another popular trend in recent years. If you haven’t yet, consider giving yourself an outdoor living room, dining room, or kitchen area. Well-placed outdoor furniture is a great way to give your outdoor space a nice hang-out area that’s classy enough for friends or for date night.
Use green strategically with plant pockets
If you don’t have time to maintain an entire yard, but you do love the look of flowers and other plants, plant pockets may be great for your personal style. Plant pockets are small cutouts in a concrete outdoor space that give the appearance of a garden without the upkeep of a grassy yard.
Looking to hire landscape designers for your home?
Fall is one of the best times of the year to hire landscape designers to give your yard a facelift. With moderate temperatures and relatively dry weather, you won’t have to worry about summer thunderstorms interrupting your hardscaping dreams.
