With spring on the horizon, now is a great time to start thinking of your landscaping plans for 2024. In this blog post, we will be sharing some low maintenance yet visually stunning garden design features, that you can incorporate to your outdoor space.

Evergreen Shrubs

Evergreen plants and shrubbery are the staple of low maintenance gardens. Providing colour all year round, as well as requiring minimal maintenance a selection of evergreens can breathe life into an outdoor space. Some of the most popular shrubs include Boxwoods, Azaleas and Lavender.

Artificial Turf

Artificial lawns are a great low maintenance option for gardens. Enjoy the benefits of vibrant green grass without the headache of constant mowing, weeding and maintenance. Artificial lawn materials also come in a variety of different styles and pile heights, to match your specific desires and requirements.

Rock Gardens

Adding a rock garden to your outdoor space is a low-maintenance yet creative way to bring depth, dimension and life to an otherwise uninteresting area. Rocks can be used to craft pathways, planting beds or even as their own feature point. Combining with other outdoor decorations, such as water features, is also a great way to enhance your garden design.

Focal Points

Garden features and focal points can come in all different shapes and sizes, suited to your outdoor spaces needs. Popular examples for focal points include water features, timber structures (such as pergolas) or statues. By defining areas of specific visual interest, you can breathe life into areas which may typically be overlooked, or create a sense of peace and simplicity within a larger area.
