Some people love the fact and others hate it but there is little doubt that it takes a lot of time to keep up with a home landscape. For those in the latter camp, here are a few tips on how to create an interesting landscape that will not monopolize your time:

Pick the Right Plants – Seems obvious, right? Still, there are countless homeowners who plant maintenance-intensive plants without any consideration for their future needs. Instead, simply consult a professional horticulturalist to find the easiest plants to maintain.

Arrange Them Strategically – Plant maintenance can be made significantly easier by placing plants with the same needs next to each other. Then, when watering, weeding or whatever needs to be done, you can attack the problem in a more systematic way.

Water Them Properly – Probably the easiest advice here – just water in the morning before the sun comes up or in the evening after it goes down. Also, soak the ground in one stretch rather than a little bit every day.
