Tell me if this sounds familiar? You hate gardening, but you still want your yard to look beautiful and match the wonderful aesthetic of your home. Is that about the gist of it? You don’t want to head out into the garden when spring arrives, working hard to make sure that it looks beautiful. If you feel this way, we’ve got some ideas that we think you’re going to like. It’s the carefree gardening approach.
We call it carefree gardening, and it’s all based around the idea of not having to get your fingers dirty or bury them in the soil. Instead, you can make sure that things stay clean, clear and beautiful with very little interaction from you. So, how does this work?
Go for evergreen
If you want some shrubs and trees in your garden make sure you look for ones that are evergreen. There are two reasons for this. First, evergreen trees are notorious for growing slowly so they won’t have to be cut back so often. Second and perhaps more importantly, evergreen trees don’t lose their leaves obviously! That means your garden can look full and filled with life all year around regardless of the seasons. If you want your home to look beautiful all through the winter as well as summer, this really is your best option. Pine trees are perfect for framing your garden too because they’re thick and can provide a lot of privacy for your garden.
What about having a lawn that stays green all year around too. You might be wondering what on earth we are talking about. After all, the grass is supposed to stay green, but actually, it doesn’t. If you don’t get enough water or the sun burns too bright, your grass is going to look like a dried up weed and what happens then? That will completely spoil the curb appeal of your home. To fix this issue, make sure that you explore artificial grass options offered by companies like LazyLawn. That way, you’ll have grass that looks green and lush all year around. If you want to be clever wait until the neighbours head off on holiday to have it installed. It will infuriate them later through winter as they try to figure out how you keep your grass so green.
Of course, more about your garden can be artificial than the grass. You can also think about opting for artificial decorating. So, don’t bother planting flowers. It’s always heartbreaking or irritating when they don’t bloom. Instead, you can decorate your garden with little colourful ornaments and perhaps even some rocks and pebbles. These aren’t artificial per say, but they also don’t rely on the weather to look pretty.
Deck it out
Lastly, you should think about adding some decking to your garden. Once you have it installed, you won’t need to do too much to it at all to keep it looking like a pretty area of your home. Just make sure you waterproof the wood, and you will be good to go.
Take this advice, and you’ll have a beautiful garden without ever needing to get your hands dirty.
