How to Design a Low Maintenance Garden
The summer heat will be here soon and the last thing you'll want to be doing is deadheading in the garden. By carefully planning your landscape
you'll be able to create a beautiful, low maintenance garden and avoid these undesirable tasks.
Here are a few tips to keep in mind:
Understand Your Site
Take some time to observe the area you would like to plant and consider these key condition factors:
Do Your Research
- Sun - Determine how much sun your site will recieve each day. An area is considered full sun if it receives 4-6
hours, part sun is 2-4 hours, and anything under 2 hours is considered shade.
- Moisture - Most plants can thrive in a moist, well drained soil, but most sites aren't that easy. Luckily, there are plants
perfectly suited for very wet or very dry conditions.
- Deer - They may be cute, but deer can devastate plantings (especially in the winter). The best way to fend off hungry deer is
to plant things they prefer not to eat.
- Wind - Many plants are not suited to high wind conditions.
Once you understand your site, begin researching plants that work for your conditions. You can visit our online plant catalog,
ask our staff for plant particulars, or search the web. This could take some time, but can save on costly mistakes and many hours
of maintenance in the future.
Follow a Few Basic Rules
Finally, follow these tips to reduce maintenance time:
By following these basic guidelines, you'll be spending more time enjoying your garden and less time "dealing with it" this summer.
- Plant more shrubs and trees and fewer perennials
- Plant "blocks" of color (multiples of the same plant) instead of a single variety
- Plant site appropriate groundcovers to inhibit weed growth
- Find plants that require little if no pruning, deadheading, or special care
- Plant native plants that are already perfectly suited to our weather
- Amend the soil with organic material
- Mulch to retain moisture and reduce weed growth
