The idea of a low maintenance garden or landscape is filled with many definitions and opinions. Plants are in a constant state of living and changing; there are seasons of growth and inactivity that include cycles of flowering, leaf dropping and seed production. And, plants need water and grooming to varying amounts for successful garden performance.
The plants included on this list are among the many choices that can grow will relatively little assistance or care after they are established. Such plants benefit from monthly inspections to remove competing weeds, accumulation of thatch, old flower stalks and general clean up of excessive leaf litter and growth. This monthly grooming should be supplemented with quarterly deep cleaning, trimming and refreshing the surface mulch. This type of maintenance regimen still involves commitment and work, and hopefully an appreciation and sense of satisfaction for helping plants succeed.
