- Easy Landscaping: What most people think of as easy landscaping is not having a lawn to mow. It is definitely a good idea to limit the amount of grass you need to cut. Slow growing short varieties of grass will help with that. But the best way to cut down on your landscaping is to make use of landscaping fabric, so you can create areas without soil that very few voluntary plants will grow in. This is where you get creative with smooth, uniform gravels, rock features and islands of growth that are easily contained. Also, having an underground irrigation system with a timer will take another task off your hands.
A good plan beats hard work any day. If you got a difficult garden, hopefully some of these tips will help you get back on the deck enjoying yourself. Instead of fussing over menial tasks.
