Backyards are a luxury, but sometimes they can become an overwhelming chore. Simplifying your backyard means having organization, so that maintaining it is the least of your worries! Luckily, with help from an experienced and trained landscape professional, your backyard can go from giving you anxiety to bringing you peace and a space to make memories with family and friends.
Lawns mean mowers, pulling weeds, edging, weed whacking, water and gardening bills. By making simple adjustments, like xeriscaping, using drought-resistant plants, or even artificial grass, you’ll be saving money, water and energy. Planting ornamental grass, evergreens and perennials are just a few ways to turn your lawn into a beautiful escape. These plants give your backyard structure, texture, and vibrant color. Installing concrete hardscapes, decomposed granite or flagstone paths is another alternative that will also add style to your newly remodeled low-maintenance backyard.
As you work with your landscape professional, ask for advice on what types of plants would be best for your yard layout, lifestyle and maintenance goals. Together, you can create a vision for your yard that will not only meet the needs of your family, but serve as a space for entertaining guests. Small changes, like plants that don’t shed, will also save you hours of clean-up. By making a few changes, you can have the backyard you’ve always wanted with less stress and more time to enjoy it. W
