4 Landscaping & Gardening Tips for When Life Gets Hectic , Stallings, North Carolina

Maintaining landscaping and gardens can take quite a bit of time and effort, particularly if you’re an avid gardener or have high-maintenance plants or landscaping designs. Unfortunately, it’s not always possible to carve out the time needed to accomplish everything you’d like to in the yard. Decorative Creations in Matthews, NC, has been the community’s go-to landscaping and hardscaping company for over 30 years. Here, their team offers advice for keeping up with your yard when life gets in the way. 

4 Tips for Time-Saving, Low-Maintenance Landscaping & Gardening 

1. Make a To-Do List 

When time is limited, prioritization is crucial. Make a to-do list outlining urgent tasks as well as non-essential ones. Tackle the essentials and, if you have time and energy, handle the secondary chores after. You can also delegate tasks and ask for assistance from family, neighbors, or a professional. 

2. Use Mulch to Reduce Weeding Time 

Mulch has multiple benefits, including weed control. It creates a barrier to keep light from penetrating the soil, which in turn prevents weed seeds from germinating. It also improves the soil’s water retention so you won’t have to water or weed as often. 

3. Install a Drip Irrigation System 

landscapingDrip irrigation systems are an eco-friendly way of conserving water while also enhancing convenience. They provide a slow, steady stream of water to the roots of plants, either from above or below. You can purchase drip irrigation kits at a local home and garden store. Or, better yet, ask a landscaping professional to install one for you. That way, you can save time knowing your system has been properly installed. 

4. Hire a Gardener or Landscaper 

Hiring a landscaper or gardener is an excellent way to save yourself time and stress without sacrificing the health or appearance of your yard. These professionals can help on a one-time or consistent basis. You might also consider hiring a landscaper to implement a low-maintenance design suitable for your busy lifestyle.
