Do You Have Dry Grass? Use These Alternatives

Is your grass looking worse for wear after a long, cold winter? Damaged and dry grass can make your home look unkempt and even lower the overall curb appeal. Not only does grass take more maintenance than some of its’ alternatives, but it can also be more expensive when it comes to water and gardening bills. Not to worry, if grass isn’t for you, there are plenty of alternatives to keep your outdoor space looking presentable year round.

Do You Have Dry Grass? Use These Alternatives

Synthetic Grass

Synthetic grass is the best option to give you the same aesthetic as turf grass without having to worry about maintenance.
This replacement stays beautiful year round so you don’t have to worry about it suffering during the cooler months or becoming damaged from the warm rays of the sun during summertime.
You don’t have to water, mow or maintain it whatsoever. And until you touch it, you won’t even notice it’s not real grass.
This is a great option for those who want to enjoy their lawn year round and be able to dine or play outside at a moments notice.


If you see some possible functionality of your outdoor space that isn’t been used yet, hardscaping could be the right option for you.
There are so many hardscape features that can take the place of grass and give your outdoor space a facelift.
You could select pavers which can be used to create an outdoor patio space or walkway. This is a perfect place to put outdoor seating or even a firepit for people to gather around and enjoy in the cooler weather.
You could also install travertine stone to give the space a more finished and luxurious look. Waterfalls and other water features are also a great use of space.
Hardscaping areas that used to have grass will also save you on maintenance costs and allow you to enjoy the space in a more functional way.

Native Plant Garden

If you still want the look of a full, lush garden without the maintenance of grass, consider a native plant garden.
Select plants that are indigenous to the area in which you live. This way they will be able to thrive in the climate and come back to life easily when spring rolls around.
You can mix and match the various plants throughout the space, creating a unique outdoor area that doesn’t have to look perfect like grass.
When grass begins to dry out or become patchy, it’s very noticeable. But with a native plant option, you don’t have the same issue.
You’ll also cut down on water costs with the native plants because they will already be prepared to handle the natural climate and rain or snowfall that exists in your area.
