We’ve been hard at work creating a water conservation-friendly, grassless backyard! When you live in a desert climate, it only makes sense to use as little water as possible for the landscape.
Of course, I would love endless acres of green grass, but it’s just not our reality here in Los Angeles. Luckily there are many beautiful plants, trees, and flowers that require a low amount of water!
It’s actually possible to create a pretty and lush yard using little water, as you can see in these 10 grassless, no lawn backyard photos! How inspiring!
10 Grassless Backyards
I couldn’t bare not having any green grass somewhere for Romeo to play on. So we chose an area that’s shaded by an oak tree to put artificial grass.
I never thought I would like it, but after seeing it and doing research I think it’s going to look great! I’ll share the before and afters, the plants we used and tips when we’re done, but for now enjoy these beautiful grassless backyard photos!!
What can I use instead of grass in my backyard?
There are so many options! Here are a few below that are great to use instead of grass:
- Native Plants and Flowers
- Artificial Grass
