While gardening is fun and therapeutic, some of us don’t have much time to do gardening and tidying up the garden. Besides, it can be a handful to do all the work yourself. Therefore, it would be nice to have a yard that requires low to no maintenance at all. Here are some simple ideas to make it happen.
1. Stones and pebbles
Take a bulk of pebbles and spread them across the yard. Top it off with large stepping stone, and it can be a path from the door to the gate. For a dramatic look, you can place them on the outer side of your trees or bushes. Natural stones in large sizes can be the patio base where you place table and chairs to enjoy the scenes.
2. All year long plants
Many attractive varieties grow slowly and do not need mowing at all. Some plants such as evergreens, perennials, and succulents can grow with little attention all year long. They thrive even to the driest season or during heavy drought.
3. Sprinkler system
A high-quality sprinkler system can make sure your yard stays green and hydrated. Even the most forgetful homeowner can rely on a scheduled sprinkler system to keep their yard green. Invest in a good one and forget it is even there
4. Potted Plants
Potted Plants are versatile, and you can have colorful pots in various size. Place them in a different area of the yard. They add a pop of color and easy to move around. Both are the two major features for keeping a modest and low-maintenance backyard
5. Mulch beds
There are many benefits of adding mulch instead of grass. It is a fertilizer and a low-maintenance weed preventer. Plus, do not forget they are also really affordable. Mulch also has a pleasant smell which makes it a great addition to your yard.
That is how you can have more time enjoying your yard instead of taking care of it. Take these tips to minimize the workload on watering and getting rid of unwanted weeds and pests. That way, you have more time enjoying it.
