How You Can Still Enjoy Gardening in an Artificial Grass Garden

ADAuthor - Artificial Grass Direct

Have you decided you like the idea of low maintenance, ever-green artificial grass garden but think you’d miss gardening too much? It might seem counterintuitive for a gardening lover to like the idea of artificial grass, but many gardeners would rather dedicate their time and energy to nurturing flowers and plants rather than tending to a lawn. In fact, many people who install artificial grass still have very active gardens full of life. Find out how you can still enjoy gardening in an artificial grass garden below.

Potted Plants

By embracing the power of plant pots, artificial grass gardens can be home to a wide variety of plants, flowers, and even vegetables! Many flowers grow just as well in pots as they do in the ground and some even flourish. Flowers such as cosmos (a daisy look-a-like that’s actually a member of the sunflower family) and certain species of japonica make for gorgeous and colourful potted displays in British gardens.

‘Golden Sword’ yucca is a great potted plant that’s sturdy enough to spend 365 days a year outside and works as a fantastic centrepiece to build displays around. Finally, vegetable lovers will be pleased to know that favourites such as tomatoes, potatoes, and many varieties of salad leaves can actually thrive in containers. Tomatoes and potatoes are best grown in deep containers (even grow bags) whereas salad leaves only need shallow containers, a few inches deep, to flourish.

Hanging Baskets

Hanging baskets are a great, low maintenance gardening project for people who love to see things grow but don’t have the time or desire to take on bigger gardening challenges. They also work well to maximise space for people with smaller gardens with floor space they’d prefer to use for leisure activities.

You can grow almost all your favourite flowers in hanging baskets including begonias, petunias, fuchsias, lobelia, and geraniums. Many of these flowers come in multi-coloured varieties so you can choose varying shades of similar colours (such as oranges and yellows) for the perfect pallet for your garden or go all out for a multi-coloured display.

Indoor Herb Gardens 

Finally, if you like the idea of growing something edible but don’t quite think you’re ready to grow your own vegetables, indoor herb gardens make for a delicious gardening project which can be enjoyed by almost everyone. You don’t have to grow your herbs indoors (many will do just as well outdoors in the spring/summer time) but if you’re looking for a year-round herb garden you can pick and pull from as you please then we recommend placing pots on a well-lit windowsill and watering regularly. You’ll be able to grow anything from basil, parsley, and chives all the way to rosemary, oregano, and mint.

There are multiple benefits to installing artificial grass in your garden, one of which being that time you’d usually spend maintaining your lawn can now be spent on gardening projects you’re passionate about.
