If you think a garden is defined by having a patch of perfectly manicured grass, think again. In increasingly busy times it’s difficult to commit to maintaining a space that needs a lot of attention.
You don’t have create a full-on garden in your outdoor space. Why not install a garden that runs along the perimetre of the property, which looks beautiful but is also easy to maintain.
Landscapers often add edging around flower gardens, the house foundation, and sometimes sidewalks and driveways. Installing a patio or bench near the edge of your lawn, away from the house, provides an outdoor escape. Concrete will do, or you can use stones or pavers.
