A beautiful landscape and a manicured lawn are all most homeowners want, but more often than not, it’s more work than you have time for. With each new season comes new responsibilities and tasks that need to be completed in order to keep your landscape healthy and looking nice. Landscaping for busy homeowners isn’t easy, and not everyone has the time to mow their lawn once a week come springtime! However, at Reno Green, we know that you don’t have to sacrifice a nice yard just to keep up with your busy schedule. Here are a few ways that you can make your yard easy to maintain while still looking healthy and vibrant.
Think Before You Build
When you’re constructing a landscape, it’s best to know the details beforehand. How much time can you set aside for maintenance? What plants can thrive in your climate? How much space do you really have to work with? Doing your research and creating a plan before you begin work can save you a lot of time and headache down the road. Plus, it will save you time when you began looking for what you want because you already know exactly what you need!
Forget The Grass
Though a lawn can have a lot of great benefits, it is a highly demanding addition to your landscape. Between the aerating, fertilizing, mowing, and more, you’ll definitely have your hands full. Consider the variety of other options that you could use instead. Mulch offers a great way to still keep a clean, earthy aesthetic to your landscape that can also keep weed growth to a minimum while keeping your soil nutrient rich (perks, people!).
Hire a Professional
Of course, if you still want the perks and look of a more traditional, high-maintenance landscape, you can always obtain a maintenance contract with a professional landscaping company. They will know exactly how to tend to your yard and when to do it, making it easier for you to rest easy and enjoy the beauty that comes along with it.
