Hire Landscapers To Add Several Low-Upkeep Features To Your Backyard

by Tanya Green

If you own a home with a rather empty backyard, you may be interested in adding features throughout the space. At the same time, you may want to avoid incorporating a lot of high-upkeep landscape features that demand your time, effort, and attention on a consistent basis

To make sure that you add low-upkeep features that still bring a lot to your backyard, you should contact a landscaping company to help with every step of the process.

Groundcover Plants

While you may see a lot of landscapes with grass throughout most of the backyard, you do not need to make this same decision for your own property. A viable alternative is to cover a large portion of the backyard in groundcover plants that do not require as much upkeep in general.

Grass requires consistent mowing and watering to keep healthy. Also, you will need to watch out for weeds that can destroy grass if given the opportunity. Landscapers can help you add a native groundcover plant that is not threatened by weeds and does not need much watering at all.

Native Trees

If you are lacking backyard trees, you should not hesitate to grow a couple of them to provide shade and attractiveness at a different height than the rest of your landscape. Going with native trees is the smartest move because you will not have to worry about their condition that much.

For the most part, you will need to pay the closest attention to trees while they are young and still susceptible to a variety of problems. A landscaping company can guide you through this process so that they continue to grow healthily until their upkeep demands become drastically lower.


When you are open to adding any new features to the landscape, you will appreciate what boulders can bring to your backyard. For instance, you can get professionals to bring in several large boulders that stand out and look attractive without requiring much upkeep at all. If you want to keep them looking their best, you can get into the habit of hosing them off on occasion.

An excellent idea is to incorporate boulders and several native plants into a mulch bed as all these things combined make for an extremely low-upkeep area to maintain.

If you are determined to fill up an empty backyard with features, you should make these additions a priority because they can satisfy your needs for a low-upkeep landscape.

Exploring Landscape Setups

Hello, I am Manny Juanez. When I moved into my home, I instantly started to plan out my landscape features. I knew that I wanted a small waterfall leading to a pond for my fish. I also wanted to create a few raised beds around the sitting area by the pond. What I didn't know, however, was that the project would take a lot of manpower and a bit of professional help. My site will explore the process from grading the land to setting up the electrical components. I will also talk about building the garden beds with pavers and other found materials. The information I provide should help you create a beautiful layout in your back or front yards. Come back to my site whenever you need some inspiration.
