There are many ways to make your yard beautiful. But if you’re a busy homeowner with limited time and energy, the best way is often by using St. Louis artificial turf!

High-quality artificial grass looks great year-round, needs very little maintenance and is perfect for everything from outdoor parties to a relaxing day by yourself.

You can also use synthetic grass products to improve any part of your home, such as playground surfaces, pet spaces and pool areas.

Best of all, you can style it however you like. In this article, we’re sharing some of our favorite “lazy” landscaping designs. Try these ideas for an attractive lawn that requires almost no work!

  • 1. Fence It In

    Add a decorative fence or wall to frame your yard. A fence will make your property look more elegant and a wall will give the illusion of larger space. A few types of decorative fencing you can use are vinyl, wrought iron or even wood— all of which look fantastic with artificial turf in St. Louis.

    In addition, a decorative wall can be a brick or stone exterior that will stand out in your area or create a stunning accent wall covered entirely with artificial grass!

  • 2. Use Portable Plants

    Use containers, raised garden beds or stone urns for garden accents instead of planting real grass on every inch of ground. This makes it easy to change out seasonal colors, too!

    In addition, try creating garden beds with plants that will thrive in artificial conditions, such as succulents. These plants are low-maintenance and can stand up to the extreme heat that St. Louis experiences in the summer months. Some great succulent options are jade plants and aloe vera.

  • 3. Create a Pathway

    Design an interesting walkway from your driveway to your front door with stepping stones, brick or pavers. Some of our favorite pathways designs for artificial turf installations are the chevron walkway, cobblestone paths, curved brick walkways and simple flagstone.

  • 4. Keep It Simple with a Statue

    Place a decorative garden statue in an empty corner of your backyard to create instant curb appeal from the street. Choose a statue design that complements the architecture of your house. For instance, a Tuscan-style house might be best suited with a statue depicting the Madonna and child.

Low-Maintenance Features of St. Louis Artificial Turf

  • Artificial turf is low-maintenance because it doesn’t need to be watered or fertilized. It doesn’t have weeds either, so you can spend your time doing other things — like relaxing in the yard or firing up the grill for your friends and family!
  • It’s also easy to clean – you just have to sweep off the dirt and debris once a week. And it wears well over time, so you won’t have to worry about repairing or replacing it for a long while. In some cases, that can be as long as 15 to 20 years.
  • Better yet, it never needs mowing! Because of that, your weekends are yours again. How about spending it to teach your dog some new tricks or play games with your family on the lawn?
