Do you have a patchy lawn that requires a lot of upkeep? Here are some low-maintenance options that will let you spend less time taking care of your landscape and more time relaxing in it…
Create a rock garden - The advantage to a rock garden is that it doesn’t require much work. You can design your garden to be as simple or as complex as you like. To make a bold statement, use a boulder to accent your landscape.
Switch to Xeriscaping - Xeriscape is a landscape and garden design that reduces or eliminates the need for water, but it saves money, energy, and time as well. This option incorporates well-adapted plants, efficient irrigation, water-saving mulches, and more.
Grow native plants – Native plants are beneficial to your garden because they have already adjusted to your local environment. These plants will grow with less water and no chemical fertilizers or pesticides.
Plant ornamental grasses - Ornamental grasses are very low-maintenance and are drought-resistant. Some advantages to ornamental grasses are that they create interesting visual displays with distinctive shapes, and they do not spread, so you don’t have to worry about keeping it under control.
Build a patio – It’s ok to do away with the lawn. Replace your grass with a flagstone or paver patio. The first step is finding a stone that fits your style and you’re on your way. Once installed, this option needs little to no care.
Install Artificial turf – You can’t get more low-maintenance than artificial turf. This trend requires no mowing, watering, or fertilizing. Turf can create a life-like yard that is essentially maintenance-free.
