Cutting Edge Property Maintenance can certainly help take care of all your landscaping needs, if you like. Or, you can take advantage of low maintenance landscaping to help make your landscaping more manageable as well as adding curb appeal to your home. Here are 5 easy ways:
Using Ground Cover: One of the main benefits of using ground cover for low maintenance landscaping is that it requires very little care and attention. This type of landscaping gives your property a neat and tidy appearance without you having to spend hours mowing and trimming the lawn.
Planting Flowerbeds: This is an easy and inexpensive way to add color and beauty to your landscape. Choose flowers that are native to the area and will require minimal maintenance during the year. We can help you choose flowers and shrubs for best results.
Installing Mulch: Installing mulch around trees, shrubs and flowerbeds helps retain moisture, prevents weeds and adds texture to your landscape. It is easy to install and maintain and it can help reduce water bills as well. Mulch should be refreshed routinely however.
Adding Hardscaping: Adding hardscaping features such as pathways, decks, patios and retaining walls can add structure and definition to your landscape without much maintenance required. It’s also a great way to section off your yard. We can create hardscape features that you’ll love.
Incorporating Water Features: Adding a water feature such as a fountain, pond or waterfall can be both beautiful and calming. It also adds the benefit of attracting birds and other wildlife to your property.
