Looking to spend more time enjoying your yard instead of working on it? You’ve come to the right place! Here are our top ten low-maintenance landscaping hacks to elevate your yard and outdoor living space.
Swap the grass for mulch in your beds! Mulch is an inexpensive alternative to grass that doesn’t require watering or mowing – it also adds a pleasant aroma to your yard.
2. Plant Lavender
For a pop of color and relaxing aroma, lavender will grow back every season with very minimal watering!
3. Crushed Stone Beds
If you don’t want to worry about occasionally replacing the mulch in your beds, crushed stone makes for a bed that will never need to be replaced!
4. Plant Perennials
Perennials are low maintenance and will come back year after year!
5. Pick Native Plants
Native plants have adapted to their surrounding environment over hundreds of years, making them low maintenance and hardy additions to any outdoor space.
6. Remove Leaves In The Fall
The removal of fallen leaves is the simplest way to winter-proof your yard, removing the leaves prevents any future rotting that could harm your lawn.
7. More Hardscaping
Less lawn means less maintenance! Consider investing in expanding your hardscape for less landscaping maintenance all around!
8. Less Is More
Rather than crowding your garden beds with too many plants to maintain, opt for just a few high volume and low maintenance native plants.
9. Automated Irrigation
Remembering a watering schedule is hard and time consuming, invest in automated irrigation and take your time back to yourself!
10. Hire A Full-Service Landscaping Company
The ultimate tip to low-maintenance landscaping is to hire a full-service landscaping company, this will yield better results that are completely maintenance-free!
