Super Simple Ideas for People Who Hate Yard Work Yards are meant for fun times — not chores.
Yes, you should. It’s just a matter of designing your landscape so it requires less attention from you. Here are a few strategies to help:
Use Rocks for Interesting Landscape Features
Grass doesn’t grow on rocks. Besides stating the obvious, what that really means is that they’re the perfect, versatile tool for creating a low-maintenance outdoor space. Use them to create walkways, or group them together to form decorative outcroppings.
You can even lay out stones to be ornamental dry creek beds.
Small yards, especially in desert climates, can be completely rocked over, or you can use them as strategically placed accents.
And if you’ve got spots that are constantly wet, they’re great for keeping mud (and mosquitoes!) under control because they’ll help the water run off instead of collecting.
