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!
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
- Draught Tolerant Plants and Flowers
