Low Maintenance Landscaping Design Offers Stunning Results with Minimal Effort | Washington DC

Most people love to spend their free time from work and obligations being able to unwind with their family and friends. When you have to spend hours working on your yard every week to keep it looking perfectly green, your relaxation time is reduced.  A low maintenance landscaping design uses a variety of environmental friendly native and exotic plants with eye-catching stones and pavers to make your yard look like a peaceful oasis.

The majority of low maintenance landscaping designs take into account your yearly precipitation and average temperatures to offer you lush scenery all year. If you have dry summers, your designer may recommend a drought resistant grass or to avoid grass period and use a creeping ground cover. There are a large variety of plants that are trouble free; they resist diseases and require very little routine care besides yearly cuttings. Mulch is often used between plants and pavers to reduce the need for weeding and help plant roots retain water longer.

Some of your favorite selections of trees, shrubs and flowers may be perfect for your new minimal maintenance garden. Evergreens are requiring little care once deeply rooted and add various green shades to your yard year round. The elegant deep purple leaves of a velvet smoke tree are perfect for adding that mysterious effect to your yard. If you prefer bushy cheerful flowers, the perennial peony offers you an easy to care for flower that will return every year. For larger areas that you prefer to have bright spots of color, hydrangeas are more resistant to droughts than other flowers and bloom all summer.
