Everybody would love to have a beautiful landscape in their backyard, but taking care of it is another story. If you want to have a gorgeous landscape design, but dreads the idea of maintaining it yourself, then we urge you to stick around because we’ll show you some of the best ways to achieve your dream landscape with minimal maintenance.
But first, let us demystify the term low maintenance, which is very different from “no maintenance.” You need to understand that all landscapes will require some kind of care, but with proper planning, you can significantly minimise maintenance.
So, shrubs and weeds will always grow, and they will establish themselves in your backyard. This process is always in motion and will become more noticeable if you stop mowing them. Therefore, maintaining your landscape is more like you’re trying to slow down a natural process.
Your property is considered a “managed environment,” which means you’ve established an ecological community in your area, and it is your responsibility to take care of it. Your primary role is to control or prevent unwanted and desirable vegetation from invading your landscape.
Here are some essential tips on how to get a low maintenance landscape in your backyard:
The steps we enumerated above seem logical, linear, and straightforward, but for a complete beginner – it may not be that easy. So, to successfully do these steps, you must know something about your landscape design, environment, soil, plants, and more.
