Isn’t it time you spend more time enjoying your landscaping instead of working on it. Then a low maintenance landscape is for you. Not only will it look amazing, but it is also easy on the budget!

Here are some easy techniques to create a low maintenance landscape 

Instead of bark mulch use rocks

While organic bark mulch is a great option for plants because it provides insulation and nutrients, but they need to be replaces about once a year. Landscape rock on the other hand, don’t need to be replaced as often. Rocks won’t get blown or washed away, which is great for preventing erosion, and suppresses weed growth. Just be careful, rocks can raise the temperature of the soil, you may need to be selective about the you install. 

Don’t rule out bark mulch

Rocks may need less maintenance, but the benefits of bark mulch may be worth the effort. Many native plants perform better in bark mulch, releasing nutrients, retains moisture in the soil, and protect delicate root systems. 

High quality soil is an investment 

High quality soil is a worthwhile investment when it comes to a successful landscape and garden. It allows plants to thrive with minimal maintenance, and encourage healthy plant growth. 

Choose your grass wisely 

Reducing the area of turf on your property by planting grass alternatives can also reduce your maintenance needs. Surprisingly, grassy areas often require a significant amount of maintenance. This can be accomplished by extending mulch rings around trees, adding more plant beds, walkways, paths, and focus areas.
