Low Maintenance Landscapes in Boulder

June 12, 2020

Are you dreaming of a lush garden with trees and flowers blooming year-round? Many homeowners wish for a landscape like this but don’t want the hassle of maintaining it all year. Luckily, we design and maintain low maintenance landscapes in Boulder and beyond that don’t require as much care and attention!

Native Plantings

Often when people think of low maintenance yards they picture dry, rock-filled landscapes. But we’re here to tell you that’s not true! Just because a landscape is low maintenance doesn’t mean it can’t also be lush. For example, using native grasses and perennials instead of planting a typical green lawn will add texture, color, and interest without the hard work. Another great low-maintenance alternative is making the green lawn smaller so it requires less water and attention.


If you’re interested in low maintenance landscapes in Boulder, you’ve probably heard of xeriscaping! This term was coined in Colorado to describe landscaping that is great at conserving water. And it can be a beautiful water-wise approach to a low maintenance landscape. These landscapes use drought-tolerant plants that need little irrigation. As experts in low maintenance landscapes in Boulder, we’re happy to share the 7 principles of Xeriscaping:

  1. Planning and design
  2. Soil improvement
  3. Practical turf area
  4. Efficient irrigation
  5. Mulch
  6. Low water-use plants
  7. Appropriate maintenance


A large turf area is a very high maintenance landscape. So a great way to lower the efforts in maintaining your landscape is to include a large hardscaped area. A spacious patio, pergola, or outdoor kitchen are wonderful ways to lower maintenance needs. These useful spaces also provide great areas for entertaining throughout the seasons.
