Synthetic turf offers a beautiful blank canvas for landscaping. It’s much more versatile than natural grass since you don’t have to worry about keeping it alive around your designs. It’s also a wonderful way to add green to any part of your home.

Below, we list some of the year’s favorite artificial grass front yard ideas, from live plants to xeriscapes. 

Tip If you try any of these designs and realize you don’t like it, a lawn makeover is a breeze with synthetic grass.

1. Front Lawn Planter Boxes

Planter boxes beautifully complement artificial grass for yards, breaking up the space with vibrant colors and natural textures. Consider professionally installed raised beds built from wood, stone, or sleek composites for a custom look that perfectly suits your home’s style. 

Fill your planters with a profusion of flowering plants, lush shrubs, or even a mini edible garden for beauty and function.

  • Design Tips:
    • ● Choose planter materials that complement the architectural style of your home.
    • ● Use a variety of planter sizes and heights to create a dynamic, layered effect.
    • ● Consider seasonal blooms for year-round color and interest.
    • ● Install landscape lighting around your planters for an evening glow.

2. Pavers and Synthetic Turf Combo

Combine the sleekness of pavers with the softness of artificial grass for stunning visual appeal. Opt for pavers that reflect your aesthetic – from rustic to contemporary. 

A professional can install them in dynamic patterns like linear paths, playful checkerboards, or curved designs that wind through your yard. Just say the word and we’ll help you find a FieldTurf Landscape dealer near you!

  • Design Tips
    • ● Define entryways and walkways with paver paths leading to your front door.
    • ● Integrate larger stepping stones within pathways for a natural feel.
    • ● Utilize contrasting paver colors and textures for a bold statement.
    • ● Surround existing trees or garden features with pavers and artificial grass.

3. Artificial Grass and Xeriscaping

For a truly eco-friendly landscape, combine artificial grass’s water-saving properties with xeriscaping’s beauty. 

Choose a mix of drought-tolerant plants, such as vibrant succulents, sculptural cacti, or textured native grasses. Add mulch or decorative rock as ground cover for a polished and environmentally conscious design.

  • Design Tips
    • ● Incorporate a dry creek bed with river rocks for visual interest and drainage.
    • ● Build berms or mounds for varied topography and planting zones.
    • ● Group plants by water needs to simplify irrigation if necessary.
    • ● Choose flowering plants that attract pollinators like butterflies and bees.
