A huge back yard can be an amazing asset. It could mean that you have plenty of space to make all your backyard oasis dreams come true. There’s room for a huge swing set for the kids, or maybe a pool, or maybe a massive outdoor kitchen. Unfortunately, a huge yard also comes with a huge amount of yard work. Thankfully, it doesn’t have to be that way. You can start molding that big backyard now into an ideal oasis that is also low-maintenance.
Start With A Plan
Like all good things, a pain-free yard starts with a good plan. Draw up a sketch of the area you have to work with and how you want to use each part. Let the use of each area determine how you design the space. Having this plan laid out in advance will also allow you to save money by buying supplies out of season.
Make A Schedule
Making a schedule doesn’t seem like a very snazzy solution to the work of a big yard, but it is an important one. When you have a weekly, monthly, and seasonal work schedule it makes it easier to get everything done, even when life throws you curve balls. That detailed plan will help you get back on track before a missed week of maintenance becomes a weed and vine disaster.
Grow Native Plants
Native plants are any plants that grow naturally in your area. These tend to be a more environmentally friendly option than non-native plants because they require less intervention, such as watering, fertilizing, or disease control measures. Many areas actually have native plant nurseries that can help you pick the best ones for your yard, and the best part is that they require far less work.
Finally, remember to incorporate hardscaping. Hardscaping is a great way to add visual interest, beauty, and usefulness to any yard. This could come in the forms of a paver patio, permeable cement pad, retaining walls, and many other hardscaping ideas. And the best part is that it requires very little maintenance or work once it is installed, and it decreases the amount of yard that needs tending.
Choose The Right Tools
Save time and energy by choosing the right tools and keeping them where you need them. For instance, if you have a beautiful lawn that needs to be watered in both the backyard and the front yard, you should make sure that you have two spigots and hoses, so you don’t waste time or energy dragging the hose around. Likewise, set up your tool shed near your garden plots so you don’t have to lug around your tools and supplies.
