Omaha landscaping can make a huge difference to your yard, which can in turn make a huge difference to your home. This is the view that you will see whenever you look out the window, and it is an oasis of calm (theoretically), where you can relax and unwind.
The problem is that gardens are a lot of work to maintain. So much so, that many of us are ashamed to even look out the window: much less spend any actual time outside!
So with that in mind, you need to approach your yard with a design that will help you to keep it clean and simple. Here are some top Omaha Landscaping Ideas Low-Maintenance Yard tips.
Omaha Landscaping Ideas Low-Maintenance Yard
It may come as a surprise to learn that wind is one of the biggest issues when it comes to keeping your yard tidy and organized. Wind blows leaves off the trees, it can actually ruin your flowers, and it blows dirt across the floor.
Set up wind breakers to reduce the amount of wind getting into this space. That may mean erecting something down the side of the house, which can otherwise become a serious wind tunnel!
Reduce the Lawn
The lawn is one of the most difficult parts of your garden to maintain. It has a lot of uses: being great for playing outdoors with the kids or the dog for instance. But at the same time, it also quickly becomes overgrown and riddled with weeds.
If you keep your lawn to a smaller patch, then you’ll have significantly less work to do. You could also consider using astroturf or similar, if you’re really committed to keeping this space easy.
Use Baskets and Containers
The plants are another aspect which of course can quickly become messy. Your flower bed may become covered in weeds, or plants will whither and die. This can then make the entire garden look untidy.
A simple solution then is to keep your garden more contained and modular. Put plants and flowers into containers and hanging baskets. That way they won’t encroach on other parts of the garden, and they can be tended too easily.
Keep Things Organized
Having a shed in the garden is a very important way to make it easier to keep everything maintained. This way, you can grab the tools you need easily. Other tools and set-ups can also minimize your work: such as using an automatic sprinkler system.
