Maintaining a yard is a significant aspect of owning a home. However, not everyone has the time or resources to dedicate to a high-maintenance yard. If you want a low-maintenance yard, adding hardscapes is a great option. Hardscapes include any non-living element in your yard such as bender board landscaping, landscape edging, or landscape border. Howell Pathways would like to share some of the best hardscape ideas for a low-maintenance yard.
Bender Board Landscaping
Bender board landscaping is a great way to add some flat surfaces to your yard. It is constructed using long, thin strips of various materials, including wood or plastic. These strips are installed in a curved or straight line to create a border for your landscaping. Bender board creates a clean and crisp edge for your yard, reducing the amount of trimming required.
Landscape edging is useful for creating a distinct separation between different parts of your yard. It is typically made of brick, stone, or concrete and has different styles and patterns to match the style of your yard. Not only does landscape edging offer low-maintenance, but it also adds aesthetic appeal to your yard.
Landscape borders are decorative stones often used to separate flower beds or other soft scape elements from the rest of the yard. One great option is river rock, which is easy to maintain and offers a unique look for your yard. Another popular design is a stacked stone border, which is both elegant and natural-looking.
Gravel pathways bring a unique touch to your yard while offering low-maintenance care. A 3-inch deep layer of pea gravel can replace your grassy areas to bring a natural look to your yard without maintenance. You will end up with a neat area that requires minimal upkeep.
Ultimately, adding hardscapes to your yard can provide a low-maintenance and efficient solution to enhance the aesthetics of your yard.
