Low maintenance landscape designs for 2019 that look amazing are easier than you think!  Not all of us have time for weeding, pruning and watering. Having the landscape of your dreams without all the work is easy with decorative mulch and stones.


Using stones to create walkways and usable areas is a smart way to reduce the maintenance of grass. It also allows areas to be used entertaining and functional spaces. 

Pea Gravel is the most common type of material used for pathways and fire pits. These small white stones are great for a tight budget. They bring a classic beauty and can brighten a shaded area. 

For a southwest feel, seminole chips have natural terra cotta tones. White River Rock tends to be a little larger than pea rock. They create a warm traditional feel with earth tones with attractive colors and variations.

Rock based ground covers such as river rock, marble chips, granite, and crushed concrete, add a natural texture and an artful elegance. They have many benefits, increasing in popularity, and they need minimal maintenance!

Kitchen Garden

Let 2019 be the year you create that vegetable garden.  Fresh herbs and vegetables at your doorstep is a great way to stay healthy this year and save some money. Gardening is also a great way to unwind and get some exercise.
