Are You Ready to Simplify Your Outdoor Living?


Do you love the look of a gorgeous backyard but you aren't crazy about all the work you have to put into it? If that's the case, maybe you already have in mind exactly what you want to do. However, if you don't have a plan in place, from selecting artificial turf installation to creating a patio area on a hardscape, here are some ideas that might help you.

Artificial Turf Installation

Were you totally surprised when your friend told you that his or her gorgeous lawn was not real grass? Or, maybe you saw artificial turf at a home and garden trade show. You might have even seen rolls of artificial turf right at your own garden center or at your discount home goods store. Whatever the case, maybe you've been thinking about arranging for artificial turf installation for your own home. 

You'll probably be amazed at how extremely affordable artificial turf is. And, when you factor in the cost when your water bill arrives each month, you'll realize that the artificial turf might end up saving you money over time.

In addition to your lawn looking gorgeous and saving you money, your own workload will be tremendously lessened. No matter the size or shape of your yard, the artificial turf can be patterned to fit it exactly.

A Patio Area

Besides the addition of artificial turf, have you ever thought of having a hardscape as part of your backyard design?  Think of having a concrete foundation for the hardscape. It could even be painted to look like anything from beautiful marble to brick or tile. Like your artificial turf, the concrete foundation will be super easy to care for. It will last for a very long time, too.

Think of how you want to use the patio area. For example, if you will be having meals outdoors, consider buying a table and chairs for the patio. If it will be a place for reading and relaxing, rocking chairs or a bench swing would be a nice addition. Add some fun to the area by buying a free-standing hammock or two.

Enhance the patio area with things like outdoor water fountains and hanging plants. Hanging decorative birdhouses would add a touch of whimsy to your outdoor patio area. And, of course, you might want to buy at least a small grill for preparing meals outdoors.
