The Simple Way to a Great Yard

Keeping your yard in tip-top shape may seem like a huge task, but you can have a great-looking yard in just three easy steps. These steps include keeping it simple, regular maintenance, and using quality equipment, like products from XMark.

Keep It Simple
If you want a great-looking yard without having to do much with it, you should definitely keep things simple. You don’t want to get extravagant plants that need a lot of work throughout the year. Get a few trees, a few bushes, and a few flowers that will come back each year. This will help keep your work down. The more simple plants will probably be less expensive as well. Also, refrain from using wood chips or other things around your plants that may need to be redone every few years. Instead, go with plain dirt. It will keep things looking nice and clean without needing to do much upkeep.

Regular Maintenance
Next, you need to try to maintain your yard regularly. You shouldn’t feel like you have to be out there for hours each Saturday, but you shouldn’t wait until your yard becomes unmanageable before doing some work on it. Half an hour every week or two should be enough to keep your plants and yard looking nice, including keeping it free of weeds. Of course, you will also have to cut your grass every week or so. This may take longer to do than you other yard maintenance, but is essential to having a great-looking yard.

Use Quality Equipment
Lastly, when mowing your lawn, you want to use quality equipment, like that from XMark. When you use products that are high in quality, you will spend less time trying to get things done. You can bet the job will get done properly the first time. You also won’t have to worry about your equipment breaking. Most items, like lawn mowers and edgers can be purchased with a warranty. Quality equipment bought with a warranty will save you time and money. You will find yourself with a great lawn in no time, with little work on your part.

    I agree with all your tips, specially #3. Quality is my first priority in buying things, they need to be durable.

    We have a huge yard in our other house in Kansas and my heavens it takes a lot to maintain the yard. It takes hours to get everything mowed, but we love it.

    This reminds me of a post I recently posted about choosing the right lawn mower for you. 🙂 If you do decide to keep your own lawn, this may be of help too 🙂
