Want a low-maintenance yard?

Everyone wants a beautiful lawn, but who really loves taking care of it? If you are a homeowner that dreads the upkeep of your lawn, here are some simple tips on how to spend less time taking care of it & more time relaxing in it this summer.

1. Switch to a xeriscape - Xeriscape is a landscape and garden design that reduces or eliminates the need for irrigation, so it not only saves water but it is less maintenance.

2. Create a pathway - Use decorative rock, pavers, or flagstones to create a walkway that needs little to no care. Find a stone that fits your style and you’re on your way.

3. Plant perennials, trees, and tall grass-  These plants are beneficial to your garden because there is no re-planting needed. Each will grow with little maintenance, maybe just a little watering now and then.

4. Spruce up pots and planters - A splash of color from a pot or planter makes for a quick and easy landscaping fix. Pick a color-scheme that adds a fun pop of color to be a low-maintenance focal point.

5. Make a rock garden - The advantage to a rock garden is that it is very low maintenance because it never needs tending to in anyway whatsoever. Use a boulder to make a bold statement or as an accent to your landscape.

6. Go for mulch - It not only looks great, but it acts as a protective barrier for your plants. Mulch suppresses weeds and retains moisture, so you do not have to pull weeds or water as often.

7. Mow Frequently-It will keep your grass healthy while giving it a nicely manicured look. Be sure to keep your blades sharp and to mow high. In the end, this will save you time from trying to revive a dead lawn.
