Ideas for a Low Maintenance Yard

A beautifully landscaped yard can be highly time-consuming to maintain. Trimming, watering, edging, mowing and other services may be needed to keep many landscape designs maintained. Not all homeowners want a yard that takes so much time to maintain. There are landscaping options that can still look stunning without the high price of maintenance. Here are some ideas to keep your yard and landscaping low-maintenance.

Gravel Instead of Grass

Lawns are often the most time-consuming aspect of yards. Removing the grass and adding flagstone, gravel and other rock surfaces can create a stylish yard without the need for ongoing mowing, edging, aerating, watering and fertilizing.

Native Flowers and Plants

Meadow plants and native flowers for your backyard can help cut down on maintenance. When you try to use plants that are not native to your area, they require more attention to help them flourish. Stick with native plants that will easily grow in the local climate and soil.

Privacy Trees for Fencing

Fences tend to need maintenance. Privacy trees are a natural option to provide a barrier for your yard without the need to stain, clean or paint in the future.

Evergreens and Perennials

For a low-maintenance yard, you want plants that will come back year after year or look wonderful all year round. Evergreens and perennials are excellent choices for making it simpler and easier to maintain a beautiful yard.

Of course, if you want the gorgeous landscaping of a traditional yard and want to skip the maintenance, you can always hire a professional landscaping service. This gives you the best of both worlds – a yard that improves your home’s beauty and the free time to enjoy it.
