There is no rule that says your landscape must include grass. In fact, there are many reasons why homeowners prefer to eliminate a lawn from their backyard. You may have elements in your backyard that make it difficult for grass to grow, or you may own pets that tend to ruin the grass when it’s there. Others may simply want to avoid the chore of mowing grass on their property. Regardless of why you don’t want grass in your yard, you should know that you can still implement a usable and attractive landscape.

Here are some landscaping ideas that don’t involve mowing or maintaining a grass turf:

  • Build A Flagstone Patio
  • Create a Rock and/or Vegetable Garden
  • Install a Dry Creek Bed
  • Add a Pool, Pond or Simple Water Feature
  • Use the Space for an Outdoor Kitchen or Fire Pit

Consider Xeriscaping

One of the most ideal solutions for someone who wants to avoid lawn care is Xeriscaping. This is a special form of landscaping that is quickly gaining popularity. Xeriscaping require minimal irrigation and very low maintenance overall. It is a great way to still have plenty of greenery in your landscape without the burden of grass care.

Plants used in the form of landscaping are typically those that can store water and survive a drought, such as Agave (Desert Love, Desert Diamond, Asperrima, cream spike, glass mountain) and Agastache flowering plants.

Want to do away with grass in your backyard? Whether it is a personal preference or a lack of time, we can help you create a beautiful landscape without grass. Consider our options in hardscapes, drainage solutions, xeriscaping and more at Mobile Joe’s Landscaping.

Bill O.

Joe Archer has built a great family business by treating his customer very well. They do a great job, are consistent, are reliable and are friendly. When we've had big family events, Joe takes as much pride in how our yard will look as we do...came by twice a week before a wedding to make sure things looked tops. Uses reel mowers, not rotary, to have the most even look. Use Mobile Joe!!!!

Michael DePadro

I have known Joe for over 10 years. In the past 10 years Joe has completed 3 large landscaping projects for us. My wife and I would never consider using anyone else as Joe does excellent work is dependable and is easily reached if you need to call him for anything. We can highly recommend Joe for any landscape design project or for excellent on going lawn care. Joe's team uses reel mowers so your lawn looks like a golf course fairway when his team is taking care of your lawn maintenance. I have recommended Joe to several friends who have used Joe for small landscape projects and for landscape projects that went into the six figure range. Everyone that I have referred to Joe has been very pleased with his work so give him a call if you are looking for a dependable landscaper.

I was interviewing and getting proposals from landscaping companies for a full front yard renovation at my home. Joe by far seemed the most knowledgeable and experienced of the companies I spoke with - and the friendliest. He laid out different options to meet my budget. His prices were great as well. His team did a great job, showed up on time, and cleaned up where you could not even tell they were there - other than a complete beatiful new front yard landscape with stone walls, new plantings, grass, and trees. Looks awesome! Thanks Mobile Joe!

Mark French

Mobile Joe's Landscaping has taken care of all my landscaping needs for many years - and I highly recommend Joe and his team! Mobile Joe's has designed and implemented various landscape install projects as well as performed all the maintenance at each of the three homes I've owned in north Fulton beginning in the early 1990s. I have no doubt that Joe's expertise in both hardscape and softscape has added significant value to my properties and I'm extremely appreciative for all the attention to detail and great execution that Mobile Joe's Landscaping is known for here in the Roswell / Alpharetta area. These guys truly care about meeting and exceeding customer expectation!
