Expansive lawns, vibrant flowerbeds, and extended vegetable gardens, these are some of the commonly observed sights in Canadian backyards. However, not everyone is so fond of flora and fauna because these tend to be high-maintenance. 

There is no such thing as “maintenance-free” landscaping but there are ever-growing options for low-maintenance spaces. Increasingly, many homeowners are more interested in low-maintenance landscaping options to enjoy their yards without spending too much time and effort in its upkeep. Moreover, people who are allergic to flowers or dirt usually prefer having a plant-free backyard. If you are also looking for low-maintenance landscaping options, Kay2 Contracting is here to help! 

Time to Redesign your Home with Maintenance Landscaping:

Although it may seem difficult to have an inviting and colorful yard without utilizing some type of plants and shrubbery, you certainly don’t have to compromise on the style or relaxing atmosphere when choosing low-maintenance landscaping. Here are two unique ways to help you design your yard and keep it low-maintenance.

Concrete Flatwork

Concrete flatwork is an ideal course of landscaping for the remodeling of driveways, basements, patios, steps, walkways, etc. Usually, people looking for low-maintenance options fin their yards choose concrete because it’s a more economic option while brick, stone, and masonry tend to be pricier. The wide varieties of color and finishings of concrete flatwork can look stylish, flawless, and refined compared to other materials such as bricks or stones. So, if you are looking to remodel your yard with a long-lasting and aesthetically appealing design with budget in mind, you might prefer choosing to go with concrete flatwork.

Synthetic Turf

Choosing to cover your yard with synthetic turf doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to garden. Turf gives you an opportunity to determine the green spaces and create an ideal landscaping layout. It does not necessarily need to cover the entire yard. For instance, if you have an exquisite garden but the grass is patchy, not as lush as you would like it to be, has poor exposure to the elements or you just hate mowing it; synthetic turf becomes the perfect option to resolve these issues. 

With synthetic turf, you eliminate the need of cutting the grass at regular intervals, watering it generously every other day and fertilizing. It’s also great for backyard putting! This form of low-maintenance landscaping can also be an ideal option for people who are allergic to grass. It instantly gives the yard’s entire layout a dramatic uplift and is soothing for the eyes, maintaining vibrant color year-round. 

Mulch & Rock Beds

Designated areas of low-maintenance mulch and rock beds can add a pop of color and style to an otherwise plain outdoor space while maintaining convenience. Sky’s the limit with an immense variety of colors, materials and budget options.
