Low Maintenance Curb Appeal


Low Maintenance Curb Appeal. We all want our yards to look great, but nobody wants to spend their weekends doing yard work. If you’re looking for a low-maintenance property, there are a few things you can do to make your life easier.

Low Maintenance Gardening

Choose easy-care plants that don’t require a lot of watering and pruning, like succulents or artificial plants. Consider using native plants that are adapted to Ottawa’s climate, as they will require less care than non-native varieties. Use mulch to help reduce weeds and conserve moisture. Create raised beds or use pots or other containers to further reduce the amount of time needed for weeding and maintenance.

 

Low Maintenance Lawn

There are many ways to create a low-maintenance lawn. Consider using groundcovers, gravels and hardscaping pavers to create defined spaces. These efforts can greatly reduce the amount of mowing you’ll need to do. It also helps keep weeds and unwanted plants from taking over large portions of your yard, which would require a lot of time and effort otherwise. Turf has also come a long way, and would require little to no maintenance for the most part.

 

Low Maintenance Fencing

One of the best ways to reduce the amount of maintenance your fence needs is to choose a durable, long-lasting material. Metal or PVC fences are great options that will last for many years with very little care. If you choose a wood fence, make sure it is pressure-treated so it can resist against rot and insect damage. You should also seal or stain it to protect it from the elements.

 

Low Maintenance Home

If you’re looking to build a new structure, there are optimal materials you can use to make sure your home lasts. Check out these great low-maintenance building materials.

 

Consult The Experts

Talk to a professional landscaper about your options and what would work best for your specific situation. They can help you choose the right plants, hardscaping materials and more to create a low-maintenance outdoor space that you’ll love.
