When planted in groups, plants will grow better because they can share nutrients; If a backyard doesn’t feel warm and cozy, then it loses its essence.
- Brown sections is a No in landscaping
A green lawn is appealing; therefore, you must ensure that yours has no brown patches on it. To do this, all you need to do is to avoid mowing more than an inch of the grass; instead, you should use a not so sharp blade to prevent extensive damage to them.

Planting edible plants for groundcover is advantageous to your landscape because such plants require less maintenance and can withstand high traffic unlike delicate garden plants such as regular grass. You can choose the low growing plants such as berries or even those that can grow higher to provide you with privacy. These edibles will also bring an additional source of nutrients to your table as well as beautifying the landscape.
- Try the art of “hardscaping.”
If your idea is to have a backyard with fewer maintenance requirements, then you may need to consider hardscaping as a solution.
