3 Low-Maintenance Ways To Get A Great Yard

Having a lush, inviting yard may seem like something only those home owners with tons of spare time can accomplish, but this isn't really the case. You can have a beautiful yard without spending all of your free time watering, weeding, and mowing. The key is to find ways to streamline and outsource your lawn maintenance, while also incorporating landscaping ideas that require less effort but still look appealing. Here are three low maintenance ways to get a great yard:

Outsource Your Mowing

Mowing your lawn often enough to keep it looking great can be time-consuming, and one that prevents a lot of homeowners from having the yard they really want. By outsourcing this task each week, you will save a ton of time and your yard will look better than ever. Most lawn care companies also offer add-on services, such as fertilizing and weeding, which will keep your yard in ideal shape with little to no effort on your part. 

Focus on Native Plants

When choosing plants, flowers, and shrubbery for your landscaping, it's a great idea to focus on plants that are native to your region of the country. Native plants require much less fertilizer and water than non-native plants since they already grow easily in the local climate. You get the beauty of greenery, flowers, and nice landscaping, without wasting water, time, or effort.

Add a Sprinkler System

Watering your lawn may be even worse than mowing when it comes to lawn care tasks that take up a lot of time. But, if you don't water regularly, your grass can quickly turn dry and brown, destroying all your efforts to have a beautiful yard. The best solution is a sprinkler or irrigation system that waters your yard evenly and can be pre-programmed to water at specific times each day.

Some sprinkler systems now incorporate smart technology, allowing you to water your yard or quit watering from a convenient app on your phone. Sprinkler and irrigation systems also tend to waste less water than hand watering, so not only will you save time, but you may also find that your water bills go down.

As you can see, a beautiful yard doesn't have to be time consuming or high maintenance. By following these low maintenance lawn care tips, you will be able to have the yard of your dreams without sacrificing all of your free time.

Making Over My Yard

After we purchased our first home, I realized that there were a few things in the yard we needed to focus on. In addition to going through and weeding the entire area, we also started thinking about things that we could plant that would add a little interest. It was really incredible to see how much of a difference our efforts made, and pretty soon our yard was one of the nicest ones in our neighborhood. Believe it or not, we even had people asking us who did the work professionally, which was hilarious because we were just doing the best we could. This blog is all about making over your yard with the right landscaping.
