Landscape Designs for Backyards without Grass

by Guest on Jul 2, 2014

Having a lawn in your backyard may be quite tedious and expensive. For maintenance, it will need large amounts of fertilizer, water, and even gas. So, if you are not up for those, you might want to learn about some landscape designs without grass in your backyard. Here are some landscape design ideas for backyards without grass.

  • Instead of grass, you can try covering up your backyard with other plants and flowers that are not as high maintenance or as expensive as a lawn grass. You can also opt to grow some plants which might give you something in exchange for the maintenance you give – fruits and vegetables maybe.
  • If you want to make your backyard more beautiful, you can create patios, pathways, or decks. This can give you a place to rest while also nicely covering up your backyard. You can use different kinds of materials for this idea. You can use wood, slate, rocks, cobblestones, marble, concrete, and the likes. The choice will depend greatly on what the frequent weather is in your area or the theme of your home so that your backyard will be more effective.
  • You can also add some additional features in your background that will add beauty to the entire landscape. You can add in a small pond and take care of Koi fishes for a more relaxing garden. You can also add a small playground area if you have small kids so they can play around in the sand right in your backyard. If you have a bigger backyard, you can also build a nice swimming pool. You can also go simple by just adding some yard furniture sets on your backyard or even install one directly on the deck.
