Adding living plants and trees is a great way to complement your artificial grass lawn. You can create a gorgeous, artificial grass garden by planting real flowers, trees, and shrubs in and around your artificial grass. In fact, once you make the move to synthetic turf, you will find that you can enjoy a more colorful, lively garden than ever before.
Artificial Grass Garden Myths
There are many common misconceptions about an artificial grass garden. For example, you might think installing artificial grass limits your landscape design options. However, that is far from the truth. You can still add all the elements you would have used in a living lawn into your artificial grass lawn. This includes adding a variety of vibrant flowers and shady trees. Most living trees and plants thrive in or around artificial grass.
Planting trees in Artificial Grass
Myths that suggest you can’t plant trees in your artificial grass lawn are just plain wrong. In fact, artificial turf is actually a great place to plant a tree. People often consider using artificial grass around trees because they can’t get real grass to grow there. This is because dense tree canopies can make an area too shady for grass to grow and because tree roots can hog all the water and nutrients around them.
Additionally, mowing and weed whacking can also damage tree trunks and roots, leaving them with open wounds that can let pests and disease in. However, this is not a problem when planting living trees in or around artificial turf. We can also install artificial grass around any existing trees, shrubs, or other landscaping you have.
Artificial Grass and the environment
Contrary to common belief, artificial grass is environmentally friendly. What some people don’t realize is that artificial grass installation is also a responsible landscaping option. There are many numerous benefits to the environment such as water conservation, recycling, and no more harmful lawn mower emissions.
Another advantage of artificial grass over the real one is it will never be toxic. That’s because you don’t need to use weed killers, pesticides, fertilizers, and herbicides to protect it. These chemicals are harmful to humans, pets, and the environment. Chemical herbicides and pesticides can also be damaging to trees, ornamental plants and beneficial insects in a residential garden.
