Artificial Turf Garden Design — The Real Appeal

June 16, 2017

At Watersavers Turf, people often ask us what is the real appeal of an artificial turf garden design? For people who use fake grass and have live gardens, it’s the best of both worlds. Choosing the easy care of synthetic turf doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy growing things. Your yard can combine man-made grass with living plants and be an artificial turf garden. You’ll also have more time for gardening because your lawn won’t need to be mowed, watered or weeded. Grow your own fresh vegetables. Have the flowers and shrubs you’ve always wanted. Having an artificial turf garden simply means that you can do whatever you want with your yard.

You’ll want to plan it out in advance because live plants need sunlight and water. So decide where your live garden will need to be located to thrive.

Once that has been done, the rest of your planning will be easy. Fake grass can be placed anywhere in your yard, and it will always look good. Once it is in place, it’s very easy to care for. That means you’ll have lots of time care for and enjoy your garden’s fresh veggies and lovely flowers.

Ways to Blend Artificial Lawn and Real Plants

A few tips can help you to easily blend your yard’s artificial lawn and real plants. Your lawn won’t need to be watered but your garden will. So make sure that your yard has a water source that you can use for this purpose. Know your yard’s sun exposure when planning your artificial lawn and real plants. Some plants can thrive in the shade but most flowers and all vegetables need a good amount of sunshine. Keep in mind that you don’t always have to dig up part of your yard to enjoy gardening. Container gardens have also become very popular. They are a great way to grow things in limited spaces, such as balconies and patios. There are no rules when blending your artificial lawn and real plants so be creative and have fun with it!

If you use synthetic grass around your pool area, add some potted shrubs to add privacy. How about using potted (or planted) fruit trees in your outside dining area? You’ll be able to pick fresh lemons to use for cooking and cocktails.

Thinking about the things that you enjoy will help you decide where and what to plant in your yard.

Finding the Most Realistic Artificial Grass

It often takes the most realistic artificial grass to convince people who love gardening to use it. Luckily, the man-made grass choices of today are far more realistic than the so-called AstroTurf of years ago.

In fact, the old and new versions of fake grass have almost nothing in common. It used to come in one bright green color that did not look real. Now you can find it in a variety of green shades that look very natural.

The old type of plastic turf had blades that were all the same length. It looked more like a green rug than like grass. Today, you can choose from a variety of blade styles and lengths.

The fill that is now used is also better – it’s safer and more natural looking. The padding that is used also makes today’s fake lawns more level. All in all, today’s synthetic turf products look terrific and perform much better.

When they are combined in a yard with live plants and gardens, it can be hard to tell that they are not real. The free 1’ x 1’ samples that we offer at our SF Bay Area locations will impress you with how good our products look. They feel good, too.

How Installing Artificial Grass Saves Money

Would you be surprised to find out that installing artificial grass can also save you money? Here’s how and it is very simple. It does not need to be watered.

People living in areas of drought know all too well how costly water can be. Many towns and cities have even limited its use for things like watering lawns and gardens. Many people like to grow their own vegetables to save money, and those need to be watered. However, a fake grass yard can survive just fine without water.

Save Your Use of Water for Your Veggies, Flowers, and Other Plants

It has been estimated that the average homeowner can save hundreds of dollars per year in water costs just by having a fake lawn instead of a real one.

The savings don’t stop there. The cost of lawn care, whether you do it yourself or hire it done, can add up. With synthetic turf, you save on all of those costs.

When you compare the cost of installing fake grass to how many years it lasts, you can save a lot of money. That’s why it is important to use a good quality, long-lasting turf product. At Watersavers Turf, all of our products are backed by our 18-year residential (10-year commercial) warranty. It is one of the best warranties you’ll find anywhere on synthetic grass.
