Ways to Make a Garden Fuss Free!

{Collaborative content}Your garden area is something to be enjoyed throughout the year, but not many of us would want to spend time tending to it like we would do with the rest of our property. So if you’re not that much of a gardener, here are some ways to make your garden fuss-free.




Use Artificial Grass
Artificial grass makes you think of that plastic, rubber, neon green monstrosity, right? Well, a lot has changed in both technology, designs, and materials since they were first introduced, and now, there’s a lot of artificial versions out there that look just like the real thing. You can request a free artificial grass sample before having to buy the full amount so that you can see exactly what your getting. By having this fake grass, you don’t need to worry about mowing or pruning your garden. The wet weather you get will help keep it clean, and it will always look good, no matter what extreme weather conditions hit it. So you reduce the amount of time you have to spend on looking after your lawn, which is what you want when it comes to a fuss-free outdoor space.


Find Indestructible Plants
Indestructible plants are a great thing to include within your garden if you don’t like the idea of having to do too much extra work to ensure they stay alive. Not to mention all the weeding that tends to come with looking after the more fussy flowers and shrubs. Do your research and find those plants that are going to be virtually unkillable. The more you can find that aren’t going to take much to grow and flourish, the better.


Avoid Metal Furniture
Metal furniture, although it tends to look nice, if you don’t keep it out of the wet weather, it can rust pretty easily. There are treatments you can get to help make it weather-resistant, but if you want to save yourself time, just avoid the metal furniture altogether. Opt for more durable outdoor furniture that you can leave out come rain or shine. A simple wipe down is all you want to be doing when it comes to the outdoor furniture you buy. Any cushions, try keeping them stored away unless they are water-resistant too.


Keep It Minimalistic
Adding decor to your garden is a must, but it’s important to try and keep it minimal where possible. The less fuss and work you’re having to do on your outdoor space, the better you’ll feel about spending time outside in it. Keep things minimal by only buying certain types of plants or flowers so that you’re not having to deal with pulling dead ones up and planting new ones. Keep furniture basic and add a simple water feature to create a relaxing atmosphere.

You can still have a beautiful garden but not need to spend nearly as much time as you would usually if you pick the right features. Embrace the artificial and find furniture that doesn’t require any movement or maintenance.
