How to balance nature with your artificial lawn

If you’re a nature-lover and are wondering how to introduce flora and fauna into an artificial garden, it’s actually easier than you think.

From vibrant plant life to features that encourage local wildlife, all can easily be married with artificial grass to create a calming sanctuary in your garden where nature can thrive.

5 tips to bring nature to your artificial lawn 

Let plantlife flourish

A pristine artificial lawn can be complemented with some well-placed potted plants or trees to add a splash of colour and vibrancy that won’t be too much hassle to maintain.

Consider climbers too, which can grow on walls and garden structures to bring further beauty to the space.

Well-placed pots and climbers are ideal for those who are seeking a low-maintenance way to encourage birds and insects – while still enjoying the benefits of minimal upkeep, synthetic lawn. 

Build a cosy home for wildlife

There’s nothing more inviting to local creatures than a cosy home to call their own.

You can even get the whole family involved with building hedgehog houses, butterfly shelters or even ‘insect hotels.’

Get creative with your ideas and prepare a warm welcome for your new visitors, who are sure to liven up your garden and increase the biodiversity of your outdoor space. 

Enjoy the serenity of a water feature

A soothing water feature is a stunning focal point for any garden, and also creates a new habitat for a variety of species – including insects, fish, amphibians, birds, and small mammals.

The type of creatures likely to move in will be influenced by the type of feature you choose.

Perhaps you want to keep things simple and elegant with a low-maintenance birdbath?

Or perhaps you’re feeling more ambitious and are planning to create an entire pondscape from scratch? Whatever you choose, a water feature can pair well with any type of lawn. 

Feed the birds

The sight and sound of birds has always been a peaceful ingredient of any garden – even those with artificial grass. Birds tend to prefer high perches and feeders, so setting up a couple of these structures outside is sure to entice in some feathered friends. 

Lay a path for wildlife

It’s all very well setting up conditions to welcome local wildlife, but it is of little use if animals struggle to access your garden in the first place.

Increasingly, homes across the country are walled or fenced, making it difficult for hedgehogs, frogs and small mammals to travel between gardens.

To remedy this, either create a small hole in the base of your fence or wall or opt for hedgerows instead.

Hedges are a softer, more natural border to your garden and can also become a place of shelter and roosting for a variety of birds, mammals and insects.
