There is no such thing as a maintenance free garden, however, there are a few things that you can do to create a low maintenance garden.

  1. Mulch – mulch has three main benefits, the first is that it keeps weeds under control in the garden. it will not prevent weeds from growing but will minimize their germination. Secondly Mulch will keep the sun from baking the soil. Making for easy removal of weeds (along with their roots) and also allowing water to penetrate the soil deeper and quicker. the third benefit to mulch is that it significantly reduces evaporation which means your plants will have a better chance of getting more water.
  2. Irrigation – not only is consistent watering good for your plants, but it is also a hindrance to weeds. Weeds thrive in hot/dry conditions. Most plants thrive with more water. Also wet/loose soils are generally easier for the roots of your plants to grow through.
  3. More plant material – although this may be additional costs, adding more plants to your garden will decrease weeds. Simply because it is more competition for the weeds. Less sunlight for the weeds = less weeds.
