Sometimes it’s just not feasible for those on a budget to replace their entire lawn with artificial turf. Lawns can stretch for acres, and even with its water-saving elements, replacing a lawn solely with artificial turf can be a significant expenditure.

If you want to save money with a new lawn, your vision for a new front and backyard doesn’t have to mean covering your entire lawn in artificial turf. Thankfully, there are money-saving shortcuts that still employ the use of artificial grass, while combining other lively elements.

Here are 4 ideas on how artificial grass can improve your Tampa home:

  1. Design your own Rock Garden
    Installing a rock garden alongside artificial turf is one of the easiest, cheapest, and most attractive ways to fill space in any front yard or backyard. A variation of garden rocks, crushed stone, and gravel can be assorted by color and organized into appealing designs, and are a great way to outline edible gardens, trees, and artificial turf.
  2. Create a Walkway
    Sizable blocks of stone can be found relatively cheap at home and garden outlets and are a cost-effective design element for outdoor space. And instead of cutting artificial turf to line the stone, use mulch to pad the stone steps a few feet on either side and then enclose the mulch with artificial turf. You can use large rocks, pebbles, and other basic elements in order to create gardens that require no plants at all. They create fun garden effects appealing to the eyes!
  3. Pavers and your Patio
    Instead of a single-toned grassy lawn, you can add an element of colorful relaxation by using pavers to morph a chunk of outdoor space into a budget-friendly patio. Depending on your design preferences, you can use brick, rustic stone, or even concrete blocks to spice up your open-air environment.
    Natural stone pavers complement any yard space and can be cut into shapes that fit the design of any patio or walkway. Pavers are perfect to place around fountains, fire pits and a great way to add elegance to an outdoor entertaining area.
  4. Break up Green Space with Mulch
    Using mulch alongside tampa artificial turf is an effective way to break up green space and make room for the garden of your dreams. As gardening’s secret weapon, mulch makes planting an edible garden, trees, or beautiful rows of flowers much healthier, contributing to soil fertility and weed control.
    Plus, mulch is incredibly cheap and like artificial turf, it doesn’t need much maintenance (if you buy organic mulch, you’ll need to re-mulch once annually). You can frame your favorite tree in mulch, create an eye-popping flowerbed, or use dark mulch to accent bright green bushes.
    Don’t forget to implement cost-effective artificial turf into your budget lawn ideas.

Get Drought Tolerant Landscaping with Artificial Grass

Drought tolerant landscaping, a hot topic among homeowners and business owners right now, is a landscape design that utilizes plants and materials that do not require large amounts of water to maintain.

Even though Florida is having a drought, you can still have a beautiful lawn.

If you live in Florida, you know how dry it has been for the last several months. The dry spell actually started in November of last year; it was the warmest and most dry December on record since 2010.  And just this week, it was announced that sixty-six percent of Florida is now in a drought condition, which is the highest percentage of any state, according to the US Drought Monitor. The northern parts of Florida are in an “extreme drought” state, the second-worst level on the drought scale.

Unfortunately, the drought is expected to persist, which could translate into major crop losses and water shortages.  The state has already issued Burn Bans, which prohibit the burning of yard debris.  Why the drastic measures?  A 400-acre fire in Lehigh Acres recently destroyed 13 homes and can be traced to a cigarette; already this year, over 126,000 acres have burned in Florida, surpassing the 5 year average of acreage burned for an entire year. Ironically, no part of Florida was in a drought state during the month of February; the uncommonly dry weather over the months of March and April have created a dire situation for the state’s water resources.

What does this mean to you?  Strict watering restrictions have already been instituted in Water Management Districts across the state, limiting not only the number of times residents are allowed to water their lawns but also what times residents can run their irrigation.  And the penalties for violations are costly. Florida homeowners already struggle with a number of challenges keeping their grass green: the sandy Florida soil, the dense shade of our beautiful oak trees and lawn pests, like chinch bugs, which can quickly and easily wipe out a gorgeous lawn in record time.  Now with strict water restrictions, homeowners are uncertain how to maintain a healthy-looking lawn without frequent watering.

The Best of Both Worlds

Water conservation and drought tolerant landscaping are now hot topics among Florida home and business owners. For many, the idea of drought tolerant landscaping means a lawn comprised of river rocks, which is unappealing and unattractive, because their largest concern with synthetics is artificial grass that looks just plain artificial.
