There’s nothing more soothing than relaxing with the sounds and smells of nature. Having a garden at home helps us unwind without having to go out, but not everyone has or can have a garden in their backyard. If your yard is small and paved in concrete, it’s a massive job to rip that concrete up, dump it and then get the garden going. Or maybe you’ve got a courtyard that’s paved, that doesn’t get a lot of sun, but you’d like to add some interest to it.

Grass Daybed Main Image

Make your backyard more inviting and relaxing by building a daybed with grass!

This daybed project is easy and a lot more practical than actually turning a concrete backyard into a garden. But you still get to enjoy taking a nap or reading a great book on a wonderful lawn!

Worried about maintenance? Use soft leaf buffalo turf – one of the easiest types of grass to grow and look after, even if the area is heavily shaded!

Watch the video tutorial below to learn how easy this grass daybed is to build and maintain. :)
