Many people dream of landscaping their section to perfection but don’t want all the hard work that goes with it. While you could get a landscaper or gardener to take care of the arduous gardening tasks, it’s better if you can work with plants that don’t need you – the ones you can plant and forget.
If you want to keep your weekend for fun things rather than getting your hands dirty, then read on. Below, we cover a range of plants to talk to your landscaper about, to keep you out of the garden for longer.
If you wouldn’t mind planting borders or green walls, then liriope is well worth considering for a low maintenance landscaping project. This beautiful plant is versatile, affordable, and you can buy it in a range of colours. If you want more at a later date, you can take a cutting from your original and watch as it blossoms. Liriope requires no maintenance, prefers sun and shade, and will adapt to wherever in your yard you place it.
Succulents are the epitome of a plant you can “set and forget”. They don’t need you to water them, offer them nutrients, or care for them in any way. Instead, you can use them as ground cover, feature plants, and in green walls. Once you plant them, they only need sandy, free-draining soil and decent sun exposure. Their beautiful display of colours will lift your landscaping appeal without you having to lift a finger.
