2 Tips For Easy Landscape Maintenance


Having your front and/or backyard landscaped can make all the difference in the world in terms of how they look and how much use you can get out of them. However, a lot of people don't want to have to spend a great deal of time working in their yard. Thankfully, there are certain things that you can do to make maintaining your landscape much easier for you. Here are two great tips for easy landscape maintenance. 

Minimal Plants And Grass

When it comes to planning out your future landscape design with your landscape engineer, it is important that you take into consideration the amount of work that certain designs will entail. If you are someone that doesn't want to do a lot of work, then a design with minimal plants and grass would be wise. You can instead use a lot of beautiful rocks of different shapes and sizes, as well as wood chips, sand, etc. The plants that you do choose can be ones that require a minimal amount of watering and care, but still thrive and look beautiful. This still allows you to have a fully functional landscape design, without at all of the time and care responsibilities. 

Sprinkler System 

If you would like to have some grass, whether it be in your front yard or your backyard, then a sprinkler system is a must. A sprinkler system ensures that all of your grass is properly watered. A sprinkler system must be installed before you actually plant your grass seed or put your sod in because it is a system that runs under the ground and then comes up in the form of a sprinkler head. You will be given a time clock that is used to control the sprinklers. When hiring a professional to take care of your landscape installation, make it known where you want grass and where the sprinkler system will need to run. If you also have a lot of plant life, such as trees, bushes, flowers, etc., then you can have a drip system installed along with your irritation system. This is very similar to the irrigation system, but the drip irrigation heads only let out a small amount of water at a time, with a low level of pressure.

Your landscape design can be fairly easy to care for if you use minimal amounts of plants and grass in your design plan and if you choose to install a sprinkler system to water any plant life that you do have. For more information, talk to companies such as Boehm Landscape Inc.
