Looking for great Central Florida landscaping ideas for 2019 that don’t need a lot of maintenance? Check out our blog last week and check out these top trends for 2019.

Mulch

Not only does mulch give your yard that professionally manicured look, Mulch can save a lot of time, it prevents weed growth, and reduce the need for watering, which by itself can make a huge difference, but it also adds vital nutrients to the soil, protects the plant’s roots from the heat and cold, reduces weed germination, and makes your landscaping look amazing!

Professional Arborist choose organic mulch such as fine pine, bark or chips, because they are low in nitrogen and high in cellulose. Just make sure you purchase mulch from a reputable source, this will ensure it is free of any weed seeds.

Mulch can be bought just about anywhere, but not all mulch is the same. The first step to a great looking landscape is quality mulch. Finding a reputable source may take some research and bypassing the big box stores. Just because it is convenient, doesn’t make it the best source

Gravel

Gravel makes great ground cover, they add color and brilliant texture. Best of all they have virtually no maintenance. They are great for trouble areas where grass doesn’t grow very well, wet areas, or places that need extensive upkeep.

Gravel is perfect for creating that minimalist feel. Just add a few raised beds and mismatched stones for a whimsical feel. They are an inexpensive way to achieve a modern garden. They can even be used as artwork for a Zen effect.

For that old world charm add a few manicured topiaries. This beautiful layered effect is visually striking.

Lined Paths

A great way to define a landscape is with lined paths, either with stones or mulch. It doesn’t require much space or care, but will lend to the English countryside look.
