Kick Your Grass to the Curb
Yes, California is currently in a drought. Yes, you’ve stopped watering your lawn and it is now turning many shades of brown. So what are you supposed to do now? Rather than just pulling it out and staring at the dirt all day we thought we’d show you some of the many options that are out there for lawn replacement.
Thyme, Clover, and Turf, Oh My!
If you are serious about lawn replacement, you can definitely consider chamomile to replace the grass. It is a great option, since it is an aromatic herb that is extremely beautiful and has also got feathery leaves that are extremely soft. Chamomile is extremely popular and has been used for centuries all over the world as ground cover. The best part is that it can take significant amount of wear and tear, while it releases a great aromatic smell as well. You should definitely opt for Chamomile for your lawn if you are residing in a traffic free area.
One of the best choices you have when it comes to lawn replacement is thyme. It is an aromatic herb and since they are low growing, they work exceptionally well as lawn replacement substitutes. The best part about using thyme for the lawn is that they will release a nice sweet scent when they are walked on. However, if you live in a high-traffic lawn area, you should not consider getting thyme.
You can also use clover for your lawn, and it is a particular favorite of a lot of people already. Fans of grass prefer using clover, since it is low growing and can high traffic. Clover is generally used for high traffic walkways and children’s play areas, it is considered to be best used in places where there is a lot of trouble grass. Your children will also spend hours playing and searching for the elusive 4 leaf clover as well.
Using Artificial Turf
One option that you have when it comes to lawn replacement is artificial turf. It can be a bit more pricey (not with Smart Financing!) but you will not have to worry about the maintenance of the lawn. The traditional lawn expenses that you have to worry about, such as fertilizing, mowing and watering the lawn are all forgotten, since there is no need for it. The long-term cost savings of having a non-living lawn will allow you to live in peace, without having to worry about lawn care and maintenance, which is why a lot of people consider it to be one of the best investments of their lives.
