What are the unique grassless landscaping ideas?

Create a Zen garden 

You can create a Japanese-designed Zen garden instead of a grass lawn. This type of garden is made of gravel and sand, along with small fountains, stone lanterns, and other features added to increase its aesthetics. 

Create a concrete play area

You can simply remove the grass from the lawn and turn it into a concrete playground for your children. Install swings, slides, and climbing structures and watch your kids enjoy outdoor activities. A concrete playground is easy to maintain and adds to the financial value of the property. For commercial spaces, a concrete lawn can also be a good place to park small and medium-sized vehicles. 

Transform into a vegetable garden 

Do you want to utilise your lawn economically? Then turning it into a vegetable garden is the best option. Raise the lawn beds and plant vegetables, fruits and herbs on your premises. This will add to the house’s aesthetics and benefit you economically. 

Opt for a versatile paver patio

A patio is created in place of a grass lawn using a wide range of paving materials like brick, natural stone, and concrete. This is a versatile option where you can sit and relax. A paver patio can be used as a parking space, dining area, or sitting area within the property. You can enhance the patio by adding cosy chairs, outdoor lights, and decorative items. 

Opt for xeriscaping 

In this type of landscaping, the landscaper uses drought-tolerant plants to reduce water consumption. Instead of grasses, the garden is decorated with cacti, succulents and ornamental grasses, which do not need irrigation facilities to grow and thrive. Moreover, gravel, pebbles and stones are used to create visually appealing pathways throughout the garden to make the same look attractive.
