Low-Maintenance Landscape Choices for Your Yard

As spring approaches, it is time to think about the health of your grass and any landscaping adjustments you may need to make once the warmer weather arrives. You may want to replace some of your current plants and shrubs, improving the overall look of the exterior of your home, but what plants should you choose? You may find it helpful to make choices based on which selections will be low maintenance while still being visually appealing.

Low-maintenance plants will allow you to enjoy the look of your yard without having to invest a significant amount of time into maintaining them.
