5 Beautiful Grassless Garden Ideas

When most people think of a “grassless garden” they think of boring dull concrete jungles! Gardens with no character, no life and no fun! But, lets face it lawns and grass are hard to maintain – especially of you’re not very green-fingered. To keep it looking bright, fresh and lush is difficult and a task not everyone is up for.

So we’ve put together 8 gardens that are still beautiful and a joy to be in but require minimal care and upkeep.

Decking

Decking

Decking is a great low maintenance alternative to grass gardens. It allows you to bring extra dimensions and to your garden by adding height and creating a great place to build on. You can add funky garden furniture and planters to help build amazing garden space from the bottom up.

Furniture

Sleeper Furniture

Choose furniture that will really make a statement and cries out to be enjoyed all year round! Bright colours are a great choice for the daring or a luxury rattan style seat area for those who enjoy great comfort. But, for the true DIY guru why not make your own – we got a fantastic collection of new and redundant railway sleepers, which are great for hardwearing weather-proof garden furniture. 

Planters

Grassless gardens are a perfect excuse to have fun with large obscure planters – the more obscure and extravagant the better! We love the ones out of old toilets, wheelbarrows and sinks!

Paving

Create flat surfaces for relaxation areas – even better design separate areas for dining, reading, a hammock and your morning coffee – divine!

Gravel-scape balconies
