Making A Large Landscape Easier To Care For

by Norman Beck

Do you enjoy your large landscape but don't like the amount of time that must be spent taking care of it? If you are wise in regards to how your landscape is taken care of, you won't have to put a lot of manual work into keeping it healthy and beautiful. For instance, the type of plants that are in your landscape plays a major role in how much care they must have to survive. The method in which your landscape is watered is another thing that must be considered. In this article, you will find a few suggestions in regards to caring for your landscape in the easiest way possible.

1. Replace Plants That Are Not Native

If there are a large amount of plants in your landscape that are not native, it can cause the need for more work to be done.  For instance, you likely have to spend a lot of time keeping the plants watered and fertilized. If you were to replace the plants with ones that are native, there will be less manual care needed from you. The reason why is because the native plants will automatically be able to survive for a long time in the region that you reside in. You landscape can actually look good throughout the year depending on the type of native plants that you opt for.

2. Obtain Sprinkler Trenching Services for an Irrigation System

An irrigation system can save you a lot of time, as it can keep the landscape water based on a timer. Being that you have such a large yard, you will need a large amount of sprinklers in order for the irrigation system to do a thorough job. Contact a local company for sprinkler trenching to make the task of installing an irrigation system faster to complete. The service will basically dig trenches that the ground sprinklers can be installed in. After the trenches are dug, you can install the irrigation system on your own, or a professional can be hired to complete the task.

3. Place Rocks in a Few Areas of the Landscape

One of the methods that you can use for reducing the amount of manual labor that your landscape needs is to get rid of some of the grass. You replace portions of the grass with rocks, which can also reduce the amount of water that your landscape needs. There are decorative rocks that can be purchased, and they are available in various sizes.


About Me

Keeping Kitty Contained in a Fenced in Yard

I have loved cats ever since I was a child. My parents let our cat roam around the yard without a fence when I was a child, but when I adopted my first cat as an adult, I was much too afraid that she would run off to let her outside. After keeping her as an "indoor cat" for a few years, I decided to look into backyard fencing options that she might not be able to climb or jump over. I put a lot of research into those options, so I decided to start sharing what I learned on a blog to help other cat owners and anyone else who is looking for a fence for a specific need. I have been very lucky and my cat hasn't jumped over my fence at all and she now loves her fenced in back yard!
