Easy Tips for a Low Maintenance Landscape

Posted on 09 March 2011



If you are looking for an easy and breezy walk in the park when it comes the landscape maintenance of your home, there are some great tips that can be offered. Taking care of your own yard can yield you many desirable results for the efforts and hard work that you put into it. Hopefully, some of these 7  tips can help you reduce the man hours of time that you need in order to enjoy having a beautiful home and yard.

  1. Xeriscaping your yard is the process of removing water hungry plants, most often going with a really low maintenance yard that is generally like a desert landscaping. In places like Denver, and some other states, these yards are really popular.
  2. Automated irrigation can save you time and money. Use your hose for your garden and consider installing automated irrigations systems into your yard so you can set it and forget it.
  3. Use clovers instead of grass. You can cut down on water and pests, the seeds are year round and really cheap, and it looks great, too!
  4. Plant low maintenance plants that are drought tolerant so they don’t require very much water annually. This will save you time and money and ensure that your yard looks great during all seasons.
  5. Consider rock gardens; they include many low maintenance plants that are drought resistance and look wonderful in any yard.
  6. Harness the power of mulch. If you have dead spots that are bare and a sore to the eyes, turn to mulch as your savior. It’s cheap, it’s easy to use and it can work wonders on barren areas of your yard relatively quickly.
  7. Make snowy Mondays a thing of the past. You know, where you used to have to shovel your driveway to even pull the car out. Not anymore. Newer technology has brought to us what are called snow melt systems. They eliminate the need to ever shovel your driveway again. Imagine that!

Sometimes landscape maintenance can be tedious and tiring. Especially if you have been at work all day long and you have to maintain your yard during your time off. Many people actually prefer to perform their landscape maintenance during the weekends. Again, this can mean that you are out there in the sun for many hours during your free time on Saturdays or Sundays. For others, contracting the services experienced landscape maintenance companies usually makes the most sense. This way they don’t have to worry about their landscape maintenance and can enjoy their time off when they are not at work.
