Make your Garden Practically Maintenance Free!


{collaborative content} Just because you have a garden doesn’t necessarily mean that you are green-thumbed. If you have a garden space and you find yourself wishing that it was just being looked after by itself without you really having to do anything, then the good news is that there are actually ways to make that happen. If nothing else, you can at least hope to create a situation where your garden is almost entirely taking care of itself, and you have reduced the amount of maintenance you need to put into it greatly. In this post, we are going to take a look at some of the best ways to do this to ensure that your garden can be practically maintenance-free in the future.



Use Artificial Grass
The one part of the garden that needs constant care is the lawn, so if you can remove that problem then you will find that your garden is much easier to look after indeed. So what can you do to make sure that that is the case? Well, one great way to maintain the look of a lawn without any of the upkeep is to use artificial grass. With something like LazyLawn, you have the surprisingly realistic look of a real lawn, but you don’t have to mow it or feed or reseed it at all. That is a great way to keep a garden looking great all year round without having to even lift a finger, so it’s worth thinking about if that sounds like what you’re looking for in your own outdoor space.

Plant Perennials
You probably want there to be a number of plants around the place so that the garden can look beautiful, but if you are hoping to remove the need for maintenance, then you need to be careful about what plants you choose. In particular, you should make sure that you are going to choose mostly perennial plants, as those are much more likely to be able to just stay there and take care of themselves. You won’t need to water or feed them much, if at all, although you might need to prune them once or twice a year to keep them neat and tidy. But in general, filling your garden with such plants will mean that you can hope to have a beautiful garden without doing that much work.


Irrigation Systems
The main act that people need to do in their garden is watering, so anything you can do to make that easier is going to be worth your while. Probably the best way to make sure that it is merely being looked after by itself is to think about getting some kind of irrigation system built in. This is a system which waters the garden automatically, and so you won’t have to go out there and water it manually yourself. That can also be a great way to ensure that the garden is looked after while you are away, which can be a particular difficulty sometimes.
