A lush green lawn full of vibrant plants and flowers can simultaneously be a source of delight and your worst nightmare: the constant mowing. Watering without getting dirty looks from your drought-conscious neighbors. Weeds—so many weeds. And why do things keep dying? You can keep pouring money into your outdoor space, or give up and go with a scorched-earth approach. But those aren’t your only options.
If you’re fed up with taking care of your yard, it’s time to consider a different tack: low-maintenance landscaping ideas that still look stunning. And the best part? You’ll probably save some green in the process.
