Landscaping without grass may be achieved for a variety of reasons, such as if your yard is in the shade. Grass needs the sunlight to grow, and perhaps plants that thrive in the shade are a better choice. There are many ground covers and the fern plant that would be good alternatives. Instead of plants you can also create a living space with pathways, hammocks, sitting areas, fountains, garden art, and benches to name a few. Drought tolerant flowers such as the bleeding heart and the Lenten Roses can bring color to your yard.
- Consider artificial turf if you have trouble growing grass.
- Certain perennials, such as periwinkle and lenten roses, thrive in nutrient-poor soil.
- Grass struggles in a drought-prone region; instead consider using hardscapes in your yards design.
“Whatever is the cause for your landscaping troubles, be assured that your yard can look beautiful without grass.”
