One of the many landscaping goals for lots of people is to have an entirely maintenance free front yard. This can be accomplished either by obtaining the services of a local landscaping professional in your area or by getting a kit and doing the tasks required yourself. Whichever way you choose you can have the desired maintenance free landscape that you desire and which will look killer all year long. If you bring in a professional though, you need to be very specific in the fact that you desire to have a landscape that is completely maintenance free.
One of the ways that you can cut down on the maintenance time in your front yard is by getting rid of some or all of the grass that is present. If you have to mow and water a lawn all the time , not to mention all of the fertilizers that it takes to keep it green, then you can see how much time and money you can save by reducing or eliminating this from your front yard landscape. If you get the advice from a landscaping professional you can get some great ideas to help you come up with something that will be beautiful without the use of grass.
In some instances, clover is used instead of grass. Many people opt for this idea because it is a time and money saver. The nice thing about clover is that it doesn’t need to be mowed of ten or watered much as it is good for areas that have a lot of dry weather. They do well virtually everywhere. The best part of it is that bugs do not like clover so that eliminates a lot of pests when you wish to enjoy your front yard landscaping.
Watering the yard can be a big hassle as well. For those that suffer from this frustration their is the option of automatic irrigation systems that are becoming more an more widely implemented. Implementing one of these systems can save you loads of cash and time over the long run. You couldn’t find a simpler way to keep your lawn watered and healthy looking throughout the long summer months. No more hooking up the sprinkler or having to drag out the hose.
Professionals are easily found that can quickly and easily put in a system or they have DIY kits that you can install yourself. I would recommend getting in a professional however, unless you have experience with this kind of thing. If you were to cause a leak then you could face some flooding and rotting and neither of these is going to do anything for your front yard landscaping, do you know what I mean?
