Off Road Parking Without Resorting to Paving
If you’ve got a lovely lawn at the front of your property, there’s no need to sacrifice it if you need a parking space.
It can be a nightmare trying to find somewhere to park sometimes. Whether that’s down to you living in a busy area or lots of local parking restrictions, having nowhere to safely leave your car is far from ideal. So why not put your front lawn to good use and turn it into a parking space? No, you won’t have to rip it up and put paving down in its place. Thanks to some clever innovations, you can have a beautiful front lawn that doubles up as a drive too. It really sounds like the best of both worlds, doesn’t it?
Making life easier
Demand for off street parking is higher than it’s ever been, and it’s something that prospective buyers and renters really prioritise in a property. Not only is it safer and more convenient to leave your car on your drive, but it can also result in lower insurance premiums too. You also won’t have to secure yourself a parking permit either – which can not only be expensive, but really difficult to get hold of.
Paving isn’t the best option
If you’re going to turn your front garden into a driveway, you’re probably resigning yourself to the fact that you’ll have to get it paved over. Problem is, paved drives are not always the most attractive option. The stones will have to be cleaned, drainage can be an issue which will lead to unsightly puddles, and weeds can spring up in any gaps. So it’s hardly maintenance free. Surely though, a lawn couldn’t stand up to the rigours of a car being parked on it though? Well, that’s where you’re wrong!
Keep your grass intact
With Suregreen grass protection, you can keep your grass lawn if you do decide to turn your garden into a parking spot. So how does it work? Well, plastic mesh is used to strengthen your existing lawn. This material is ideal to reinforce grass as it can be quickly fixed to the ground, causing minimal upheaval. Then as the grass grows, the roots intertwine with the mesh to to create a surface that’s much stronger and more durable than it was originally. So by investing in some grass reinforcement, you’ll have a lawn that can not only withstand traffic, but will flourish for years to come.
A real plus point for buyers
A pretty front garden will boost the kerb appeal of your property, and a well-maintained lawn will certainly attract attention. It’s worth mentioning to buyers that thanks to the grass protection that’s in place, they’ll have a driveway that’s easy to maintain and has all the benefits a real grass lawn offers. That’s a pretty good selling point to have, especially if you live in an area where parking spaces are at a premium.
Keep it green!
As you can see, it’s really easy to strengthen your grass lawn and turn it into a parking space. There’s no reason why you can’t mix style and functionality, and this is the perfect example of that. So if you’re fed up of having to park your car around the corner or paying for a permit each year, it’s time to unlock all of the potential of your humble front lawn.
