If you get tired of maintaining your garden, it’s time to think outside the box. These three low-maintenance ideas will help you keep your garden looking beautiful without having to spend much time on it.

1. Use wildflowers for natural borders

Wildflowers are a common and popular choice for natural borders, which can be enhanced by the addition of small ornamental trees or shrubs. Their low maintenance requirements make them perfect for homeowners with busy schedules.

Wildflowers such as bird’s foot trefoil, eyebright and sweet woodruff are ideal choices for borders because they will attract insects to pollinate your other plants and provide a beautiful display throughout the summer.

2. Use different textures

To create a more interesting and complex garden, you can use different textures. For example, instead of using just one type of plant in your planter, you could mix and match plants with different leaves, flowers and stems.

Here are some examples of how to add different textures to your garden:

• Contrasting foliage – Dark green and light green plants are both beautiful but they will look great together if you add them to the same potted planter or container. You can also try mixing other colours like reds and purples too.
• Containing flowers – If you want to make sure that no bugs get near your flower arrangements then consider adding some moss around them! Moss is a great way to keep pests away from delicate flowers while still looking natural at the same time

3. Make your beds raised

Raised beds are easy to tend, and you can make them from a variety of materials. The most popular option is to use lumber because it’s readily available and easy to work with. Pine works well in colder climates because its ability to absorb water helps keep plants from freezing as easily as if they were planted directly into soil (this can also help prevent root rot). If possible, choose pressure-treated lumber for long-term durability — and healthy plants! When choosing how tall each side will be (or how deep), remember that taller sides will allow more sunlight onto plants’ leaves than shorter sides would.
