Super Simple Ideas for People Who Don’t Like Yard Work

Who has time to prep for a patio party when you can’t even keep up with the regular stuff? Shouldn’t you get to kick back on your lawn, too? Yes, you should. It’s just a matter of designing your landscape so it requires less attention from you. Here are a few strategies to help:

Grass doesn’t grow on rocks. Besides stating the obvious, what that really means is that they’re the perfect, versatile tool for creating a low-maintenance outdoor space. Use them to create walkways, or group them together to form decorative outcroppings.

Switch to Tall Grass That Never Needs Mowing

Not all grass is created equal. Tall grasses, like switchgrass, bluestem, muhly, and fountaingrass, all grow fast and require very little TLC. Nor do they ever get mowed.
How to use tall grasses:
-Group along a fence line.
-Group into geometric patterns in your yard for a clean look.
-Go more random for a more natural look.

Where there are trees there shall be no grass. But there will be shade, and that’s a plus for picnicking and lawn-chair lounging. Consider your local climate, as soaking up water can be good or bad. Do you need to sop up excess water? Is the yard already too dry? Keep in mind that native trees are less maintenance because they’re adapted to your area.
