Creating a beautiful herbaceous border with a mix of perfect perennials and abundant annuals can be a real labour of love. These types of mixed borders take careful planning and a great deal of maintenance to keep them looking their best.
Imagine how much better your borders could be if you did away with that high-maintenance lawn, allowing you to spend all your time cultivating gorgeous blooms instead.
Creating Your Border
You'll need to create a backbone with evergreens for all-year-round interest. Now add taller plants like lilies and hollyhocks at the back of your border. Next add plants like penstemons, peonies and poppies for interest in the middle of the border, and edge your paths with smaller spreading perennials like hardy geraniums and Alchemilla Mollis. You'll have beautiful colour from the spring right through to the autumn.
And what better backdrop than laying artificial grass for a perfect lawn that throws your border into beautiful relief? Best of all, you won't waste precious water resources that can help those borders to flourish.
Preparing Your Beds
Herbaceous borders need good soil preparation to thrive, and that's another way that laying artificial grass can be beneficial. When you're excavating your garden to prepare it for your new easy-care lawn, you can use the nutrient-rich soil to enrich your borders. That's what any of us, and not just the keen gardeners, would call a win-win!
