When people come to see your home, the first thing they will notice is your garden. It can become obvious when a front yard hasn’t been cared for well; either it is bare and dull, or it has become overgrown and gotten out of hand.
When landscaping becomes the only solution, you are presented with a task that calls for careful thought. The right plants can change the look of any garden, but you might be too busy to look after them, in which case they will wilt, not solving the problem.
Low-maintenance plants exist for those whose schedules do not have much room for gardening. If you are working on your landscaping this year, do a search and find the plants that are right for you. Here are four to start with.
