Having a perfectly landscaped yard is what every Hamilton homeowner wants, but it is a lot of work to keep that yard looking perfect. There are a few ways, however, that homeowners can have low-maintenance landscape designs that still look amazing. 

Automatic irrigation systems 

Do you keep forgetting to water your lawn at night, and by the time you remember, it’s the middle of the day when the sun is at its strongest? You are not alone in that! The good news is that you can install an automatic irrigation system that will come on at the time you want it to and keep your yard well irrigated. With many systems, you can also turn on or off certain sprinklers to focus on specific areas of your yard that may need more attention. 

Put in a rock garden

Let’s be real: grass and plants need a lot of attention and maintenance. Rock gardens do not require the same type of upkeep that plants do. Once you set up the rock garden and have your design in place, you don’t need to do a lot of maintenance. You may need to pull some weeds that still grow through the rocks for a season or two, but rock gardens, in general, are a low-maintenance design that will still look amazing in your Hamilton home’s yard. 

Add in mulch 

Did you know that adding mulch to your yard can help to reduce the amount of watering you need to do? This is because mulch helps keep moisture in the soil and keep the roots of your plants cool during the hot summer months. Mulch can also help to prevent weeds from growing in your yard and garden, which means that you don’t need to spend nearly as much time pulling weeds out and still have a beautiful-looking yard. 

Choose the right plants and flowers

There are many flowers that are beautiful to look at, no question. However, not all flowers are meant to grow in all climates and trying to grow flowers that need tropical temperatures year-round can be difficult in Hamilton. Choosing plants and flowers native to the area will grow better and be easier for you to take care of. Additionally, if the plants are native to the area, they will require less extra water because they thrive in the climate you already have and don’t need to be watered more.
