Designing a Low Maintenance Landscape Atlanta, GA
Garden with hardscapes and green plants.

We all want an attractive yard, but not everyone is willing or able to put in the hours it takes to maintain it. Fortunately, there are ways to still have a landscape you are proud of, without a lot of maintenance. If the endless tasks of watering, weeding, mowing and fertilizing just aren’t within your realm of expertise or schedule, we can help you at Woodburn Landscapes.

Our landscape design team can provide landscaping ideas that will help you create a yard that’s not only gorgeous and sustainable, but also requires minimal care.

What is Low Maintenance Landscaping?

Low maintenance landscaping is exactly what you may think it is. It refers to a landscape that is designed specifically with elements that don’t demand much (or any) upkeep. In many cases, this means choosing less grass and plants. However, there are still ways to add color and variety to your outdoor layout. A low maintenance landscape is ideal for those who don’t like spending time in the yard or who travel a lot and can’t be at home to tend to their landscape as much as it may need.

Ways to Lower the Maintenance of Your Yard

We recommend the following easy landscape design ideas to reduce the level and time of upkeep your yard demands:

Plant Native Plants
By choosing plant varieties that are native to your specific climate and soil, you’ll have plants that have a deep root system and grow better with less water and added fertilizer. In other words, native plants love the soil they are in and won’t need as much of your help to thrive.
Limit Grass Areas
While it may not be the norm in in our country, you can have a yard without grass. Lawn grass is one of the most high-maintenance elements of a landscape, as both warm and cool season grasses require ample amount of water, fertilizer and mowing. Whether you want a smaller area of grass to maintain or prefer to avoid mowing altogether, there are other minimal-maintenance ways to fill your yard space. Beyond more mulch, moss, rock or other groundcover, you can choose artificial turf to blanket some ground and create the look and feel of grass without the upkeep.
Add More Hardscaping
You’ve got a full menu of options when it comes to hardscaping. Hardscapes can include everything from a gravel walkway, stone patio or other constructed fixture that not only looks attractive but can also make your backyard more functional. If you’d rather not deal with weeds, watering and lawn fungus, consider investing in more hardscape projects on your property to boost its curb appeal.

Whether it is a lack of time, knowledge or desire, we understand your preference for a low-maintenance landscape. To ensure your outdoor space stays beautiful and usable despite its independence, let our landscape design team help you. Call Woodburn Landscapes today for your free estimate.
