Artificial grass is a popular landscaping option for homeowners who want a beautiful, low-maintenance lawn without the time and effort required to maintain natural grass. But artificial grass does not have to be used on its own – it can be combined with other plants to create a beautiful and diverse landscape.
One way to combine artificial grass with plants is to use artificial grass as a background or foundation for other plants. This can create a visually appealing contrast between the lush green of the artificial grass and the colorful blooms of other plants. For example, you could use artificial grass as a backdrop for flowering shrubs, annuals, or perennials. This can add texture, color, and interest to your landscape, while still providing the low-maintenance benefits of artificial grass. In the Fort Lauderdale Artificial Grass project pictured below we used artificial grass as the foundation for a lush bougainvillea and an outdoor shower.
Another way to combine artificial grass with your Miami Landscape Design is to use artificial grass as a ground cover for areas where plants may not thrive. This can be especially useful in areas with poor soil conditions, or in areas that receive a lot of foot traffic. By using artificial grass as a ground cover, you can create a green and healthy-looking landscape without the need for frequent reseeding or replanting. You can then use other plants, such as shrubs, trees, or annuals, to add color, texture, and interest to your landscape. In this Parkland artificial grass project we placed the turf in a high shade area where real grass could not grow.
In addition to using artificial grass as a background or ground cover, you can also use it as a feature in your landscape. For example, you could create a small lawn or garden bed using artificial grass, and then use other plants, such as annuals, perennials, or herbs, to create a colorful and fragrant garden. This also works with non-plant materials, such as rocks. This can provide a beautiful and functional outdoor space where you can relax, entertain, or grow your own food. In this Aventura artificial grass project we placed the turf in a stepping stone area that led to the house's pool, adding some color to a previously gray area.
Overall, combining artificial grass with your Miami Landscape Design is a great way to create a beautiful, low-maintenance grass. By using artificial grass as a foundation, ground cover, or feature, you can create a diverse and visually appealing outdoor space that is easy to maintain and enjoy.
