What Goes into a Low-Maintenance Yard?

Low-maintenance yards often include hardscaping elements paired with drought-tolerant vegetation. Including plants native to San Diego will cut down on your yard maintenance, since these plants thrive in the San Diego climate and won’t require extra work to make up for the weather. Some of these plants include:

  • California fuchsia
  • Purple three-awn
  • Desert willow
  • Fairy duster
  • Coastal sagebrush

San Diego native plants can add color to a low-maintenance yard.

Another way to keep your yard low-maintenance is to include desert native plants into your landscape. These plants will naturally be able to tolerate the hot, dry San Diego weather. Popular desert plants include:

  • Succulents
  • Cacti
  • Desert native grasses

Desert native plants are great additions for low-maintenance landscaping.

Whatever you desire from your low-maintenance yard, the experienced landscape designers at Eco Minded Solutions can design a yard that incorporates your wants and needs to produce a beautiful, functional space.
