Plan Description

The designer of this attractive, leafy landscape eschews lawn in favor of undemanding groundcovers and paving materials, allowing the homeowners to keep their mower in deep storage! The yard needs no regular upkeep, so is perfect for folks who travel a lot or who don't have the time or energy for yard care. The designer uses both curving shapes and straight lines in the design to create variety of form. Small graveled areas surrounded by groundcover, one features an artistic arrangement of moss rocks, replace what might have been the lawn in a more traditional landscape. The brick walk leads to a wooden deck that doubles as a dramatic entry court, creating a beautiful, easy-care entrance. The brick walk's strong geometric lines balance the curves in the landscape, and its reddish hue adds warmth to the wood decking and gravel pools. ~~The deciduous trees are selected for their small, delicate foliage, which can be cleaned from the hardscape and gravel with a leaf blower every autumn. Other plantings include flowering perennials that aren't fussy, ornamental grasses that require only a haircut once a year in late winter, and small-scale shrubs that don't need pruning. Chosen for their subdued growth, the groundcovers require edging once a year to keep their crisp outlines. Landscape fabric lies beneath the gravel to prevent weeds from poking through. Also shown here is home plan HPL07-2937 by Home Planners. Maintaining this lawnless front yard is a snap: Cut back the perennials in late winter, edge the groundcovers once a year in early summer, and clean up with a leaf blower once or twice in autumn.
