Why I am contemplating having artificial grass

*Collaborative post.

We are currently contemplating having artificial grass in our garden because of all the issues we are experiencing with our lawn. Some parts of the lawn are not growing properly and it has been an issue since day 1. We have tried different ways to take care of it but all the extra care and attention we are giving it is not doing much. The builders even had the lawn relaid so many times but after a few months, it ends up looking horrible.

I have heard a lot about the benefits of artificial grass and I am contemplating having one in our garden. Artificial grass is exactly what it says on the tin; its artificial so no treating or mowing needed. Which is why it has become very popular today.

Here are some of the amazing benefits of artificial grass for the garden


No nurturing required

Unlike the real grass, artificial grass needs no nurturing, which is amazing. The low maintenance aspect of artificial grass cannot be over emphasised. It saves time and effort, and as you don’t need to treat or mow it. If you ever need to clean it, a quick sweep or spray with hose pipe would do the work. Some people even clean their artificial grass with a vacuum cleaner!


It is a beauty

I love how beautiful artificial grasses look. They are beautifully naturally, so no extra work required. I also love how real they look regardless of the season. In summer, when other lawns are looking burnt and worn out, this type of grass still looks green and great!

There are various pricing options

There is a product for everyone and every budget. There are loads of cheap artificial grass available, but remember you get what you pay for. So ensure you buy from reputable suppliers only and go for the type you are sure would work great for your garden. It is also a good idea to go for suppliers like Grass Direct that offer free samples. That way you have a true feel of the quality of grass you are getting before you go ahead with it.


You can have the grass laid in unusual places

The beauty of having this kind of grass is that you can have it laid in your garden, balcony, rooftop, patio, and pretty much anywhere you want. Your decorating skills can really come into play as this type of grass allows you play around with it.

Garden Inspirations

So 2 years after moving into our current house, our back garden is yet to be sorted. We have not had the time or the resources to sort it out and it is becoming a bit of a nuisance really. Designing a garden is an expensive project so the funds will have to be in place for that to happen. At the moment, our garden is just an empty lawn but I wish it looked similar to the picture above, that will make my outfit pictures look so good.

Currently,  I take 98% of my outfit pictures right outside my house, which isn’t ideal but I am lazy like that. I know many fashion bloggers go about scouting for the perfect location for their outfit pictures but I just can’t be bothered to go out of my way to take a picture. I understand the background matters when it comes to an outfit picture but most of time, I just find myself right outside my house, taking a picture.

Taking outfit pictures right outside my house is super awkward though. I always have passersby offer to take a picture of both of us together (myself and DH – the cameraman), and the confused look on their faces when we explain why we won’t be needing a picture together just makes it a lot more awkward. They usually don’t get it when I say I am a fashion blogger and we won’t need a picture together. So having a beautiful garden to snap some outfit pictures when I don’t feel like explaining to the whole world why my DH is taking pictures of me will be nice.

I have been busy browsing some beautiful garden design ideas and I am so inspired right now. I know exactly what I want; I want a beautiful and functional garden with a patio, filled up with flowers, with a clear design and layout.

These garden beauties below have inspired me and got my creative juices flowing:

This pool and water wall garden looks heavenly. It is a bit over the top for our middle size garden, and it will cost a small fortune to maintain but it is a beauty to behold. This will look magical at night.

This is a stylish, modern yet practical garden. The beauty is in the simplicity.
