For many people, gardening is an enjoyable activity and a treasured hobby. However, some homeowners are less keen on the practice. Expert landscaping allows you to boost your property’s curb appeal and enjoy your outdoor spaces, but the prospect of maintaining a garden can be quite unwelcome if you loathe getting your hands dirty. Whether you don’t like gardening or you simply don’t have the time, these natural stone projects can give you a gorgeous garden with a fraction of the effort. Take on some of these projects for lazy landscapers and stop by Lehnhoff’s Supply to get started on your property’s low-maintenance transformation!
Create Walkways, Patios, and More with Pavers and Natural Stone
While natural stone surfaces and hardscape features can take some work to install, their upkeep requirements are relatively minimal compared to hard-to-please plants. Unlike plants, rocks look great year-round and have little preference for sunlight, moisture, and weather. Instead of striving for the perfect blemish-free lawn, consider breaking up your landscape with some natural stone walkways or a paver patio. These features can be incredibly useful, adding both value and enjoyment to your home — all while reducing the amount of maintenance you need to keep your property looking great.
Use Natural Stone Mulch Instead of Shredded Wood
A simple material swap can go a long way in terms of cutting down on seasonal maintenance. Wood mulch is a standard choice for insulation, weed prevention, and landscape design. Still, homeowners and landscapers may find that natural stone mulch is a more desirable option. Pea gravel, river rock, and other crushed stone materials can perform many of the same functions as shredded wood mulch without the need for routine replenishment.
Rock Gardens and Hardscape Features are Easy to Maintain
Do you have a shady spot in your yard that just won’t thrive? Does your landscape lack visual interest? If so, installing natural stone hardscape elements can be an effective (and low-maintenance) solution. Create a rock garden with dynamic boulders to camouflage sun-starved areas of your lawn. Add definition and structure to your landscape’s design with well-placed boulders, gravel, pavers, and more! Natural stone features are the ultimate tool for lazy landscapers, and Lehnhoff’s Supply has a massive selection. Visit us online or in-store to discover our stunning natural stone offerings!
