Slide 1: Succulent Garden


If you replace your turf grass with succulents, you don’t have to mow and you’ll do very little watering. Succulents are not fussy about soil as long as it drains well, and they add all kinds of color to your space. They're an especially good option in arid climates, or in parts of the country where water for irrigation is an issue.

No More Mowing: 10 Grass-Free Alternatives to a Traditional Lawn

Many of us have a love-hate relationship with our lawns. Although we enjoy the cool carpet of green grass to lie on and play on in summer, no one wants to spend hours every weekend mowing and trimming—not to mention battling weeds, insects, and fungus, and aerating, feeding, watering, and seeding. Turf lawns take a lot of time and money to maintain. They require the use of precious water resources to keep them alive, and the pesticides and herbicides we apply to them can damage the environment. More and more, people are turning to low-maintenance, no-mow lawn alternatives like meadows, rock gardens, and ground covers. These fresh options prove that you can have a beautiful yard without growing a single blade of grass. If that sounds right up your alley, check out these 10 no-mow alternatives to a grass lawn.
