Our team is here to take the stress out of the whole process and help you materialise your dream of relaxing in an ideal garden. Be sure to discover more about the journey that synthetic turf could take you on below.

Designing a Garden Plan

It is advisable to allow sufficient time for designing a dream garden, especially if it involves uprooting the existing formation to start from scratch. Depending on the amount of space that you have at your disposal, you will want to think about exactly what features you want in your garden and whether you will have sufficient space for these. Give your garden a unique look and a personal touch by planning your favourite attributes.

Before starting the project, you need to consider your budget and plan accordingly. Without a budget, the risks are that your garden will incur costs you cannot afford and cause unnecessary stress.

After deciding on the desired features and budget, the next step is to measure your space and draw out your plan. This should be designed to scale by someone with design skills, on paper or through computer-aided design (CAD).

Ask an Expert

When it comes to designing your garden, it is important to seek professional advice. Depending on the environment, e.g., average temperature and expected rainfall, not all features or shrubbery might be feasible. For example, plants found in tropical lands can create an exotic ambience, but colder conditions will threaten their survival. As beautiful as a palm tree would look in the middle of London, there is no question of growing one here realistically. Drainage is also a massive consideration often overlooked by homeowners. All the water must go somewhere and especially in new-builds this must be considered early on.

Seeking professional opinions will help you with your dream garden design. Artificial grass installers offer advice tailored to suit your home, personal preferences, climate and environment.

The Practicality and Maintenance of Your Dream Garden

As you design your new garden, you also want to consider its practicality and maintenance requirements. After all, there is no point in spending thousands revitalising your garden space if it’s not practical for you to sit outside and enjoy it. Neither do you want to create a garden that requires more maintenance than you are able to undertake?

Gardens require a lot of time and effort to keep in order, with blossoms requiring sufficient sunlight and nutrition, cutting of grass and cleanliness. The dream garden is the one that you can enjoy throughout the year, not reserved exclusively for bright summer days.

The Artificial Lawn Company team plays a key role in garden plan designs for many homes. Rather than sticking to real grass that requires cutting in the summer, only for it to become patchy and ugly in the colder months, homeowners are moving to synthetic turf for gardens. It keeps on looking good all year round without the need for trimming or watering. Especially useful in high use gardens with kids or pets or in areas with bad drainage and shade.

Artificial grass lawns are more practical in many ways. Real grass may not be practical for installing a prominent garden feature such as a pond, fountain, or gazebo. Navigating around large or tightly clustered garden features with a lawnmower can be quite difficult.

When and How Do I Design My Garden?

You can design your garden any time, taking as long as you like to get the fine details right. Many keen gardeners have been sitting on an idea for years, waiting for the right moment to put their plans into action. You need to think about your time and finances to get started. Everything else will be sorted as you move forward, with guidance available from reliable turf suppliers.

Artificial grass garden ideas include the required features, the amount of artificial grass you need, the cuttings and the available budget. For help with garden ideas for synthetic grass, feel free to get in touch with our artificial grass installers.
