A landscape should aim to be an aesthetically pleasing, inviting place that finds a balance between functionality and art in a way that meets the needs of the homeowner. Naturally, all landscapes are going to require some form of maintenance. Below we provide a few low maintenance landscaping tips that can help a busy homeowner.
If you love plants but need a low maintenance option, then native plants are the way to go. This is because they’re made for the local climate, so don’t need any extra care and attention above what’s normally required. Simply make note of the growing conditions in your garden and choose plants that are specifically suited to them.
You don’t need to have a large grass lawn that’s full of high maintenance, needing constant watering and mowing. You can use a lawn alternative such as dwarf mondo grass. This is a type of grass that can be used to resemble a lawn or fill areas that are difficult to mow. Other grass-like groundcovers that could be used include sedges and lily turfing.
You can help make your landscaping even easier by implementing an automatic irrigation system. You’ll never forget to water your plants again!
Depending on the type of planting you have, specific irrigation systems work better for some than others. For instance, an underground irrigation system, with pop up heads is an effective choice for lawns and a drip irrigation system might be most efficient for shrubs, trees, and flower beds.
