Going Grassless: The Benefits of a Grassless Garden

When picturing a typical garden, we assume that you’d likely imagine a traditional lawn, perhaps with a border of trees, shrubbery and plants and maybe a section of patio. Whilst lawns are very much representative of traditional gardens, they don’t have to be a characteristic of yours.

If you’re feeling inspired to switch up your garden landscape, there are a number of benefits offered by going grassless. Read on below as we discuss what these are, along with how our services can benefit you if this is a route you choose to go down.

Less Maintenance

As aesthetically pleasing as they may be, especially when luscious and green in the spring, there’s no denying that lawns require a lot of maintenance. From frequent strimming and mowing to weeding and watering, a lot of effort goes into maintaining an attractive lawn. This becomes even more laborious the larger the area of grass you have in your garden - the only downside of having extra space!

As such, choosing to go grassless frees up your time significantly, without compromising on the aesthetics of your garden. Alternative materials and styles can look just as elegant and attractive as grass, such as rock gardens, cottage gardens or even a pond or natural swimming pool!

Environmentally Friendly

Whilst lawns do benefit the environment in that they remove some CO2 from the atmosphere and emit oxygen back into the air, this tends to be cancelled out when taking into account the negative impacts of many lawn care methods.

For example, in the summer months lawns require lots of water in order to stay healthy and stop from drying out, many people may use fertilisers to promote grass growth (the chemicals in which can be damaging to the environment) and lawnmowers either use electricity or generate emissions if petrol powered.

By taking away the grass, then, you are taking away the need for such extensive maintenance and thus the negative effects this has. In its place, you can instead focus on incorporating more plants and flowers into your garden space to boost the environmental benefits, such as offering varying habitats for wildlife and increasing the biodiversity of your garden.

Embrace Change

After so long, the things that you once enjoyed can eventually stop inspiring you. This is perfectly natural, and if that’s how you’re feeling about your garden, then embrace the change!

Opting for a new design theme is a great way to breathe a fresh air of life back into your garden, offering a modern and appealing aesthetic whilst reaping the aforementioned benefits at the same time.

Of course, this may require some extensive landscaping work, such as earth removal, but it will be worth it in the end.
