Low Maintenance Options For The Garden Summer is the time of dread for those who aren't green fingered and only tend to their garden because they have to. Their partner doesn't like the wild jungle look and are fed up of losing the kids in the tall grass. Reluctantly you get the lawn mower out, it's a heavy petrol lawn mower but it's the only type that will survive the garden on account that the terrain is so rough it broke your last two. Time to think about your options You've had enough now, you've calculated the cost of having the lawn mower and the cost of your time against getting rid of the lawn and replacing it with something else. At first you thought about bark chippings but remembered that in particularly windy weather you'd end up getting the broom out every day and chasing it around the garden. After putting a lot of thought into it and researching you think you have some viable options. Grass replacement Let's sort the biggest annoyance out first, the jungle grass. After talking with your partner and having a think into the landscaping of your garden it would be nice to still keep some 'green stuff' in there. So a great substitution would be to have an Artificial Grass Installation or Astro Turf Installation, no maintenance and the kids can still play out. You can still have a bit of green in the garden as well and because it is quite hard wearing, you shouldn't have to worry too much about the weather. Great, then you can get rid of that nasty lawn mower and enjoy your days off. You know you will probably end up doing things around the house instead but it's not mowing the lawn. The path way You know how you are getting rid of the grass but you didn't really think about the path way and how to get down to that lovely bench you bought only a year ago. There are many options, slabbing, stepping stones surrounded by stone chippings, Resin Paving, extended decking and so on. After a bit of deliberation, you decide to get some fancy paving done, probably Resin
because you're going to get the driveway done out the front in that so at least they will match. Where does that leave your green fingers now? Safely indoors! If you aren't particularly green fingered, there's no law saying you have to have a 'proper' garden. Especially if you aren't that way inclined and have other hobbies to fill your days with. There's a huge proportion of people opting for replacements for grass nowadays, mostly because life is too demanding and let’s face it most of the grass in gardens these days isn't even proper grass, it's thick wild weed grass because you bought cheap seeds thinking you were doing the right thing. Time for the change you were so desperately wanting, life is too short. You're calling the landscaping company now, aren't you?
