Effort-Saving Gardening Tips For The Lazy

Wednesday, September 02, 2020

We all want the benefits of a beautiful garden, plenty of greenery, and a great dash of curb appeal for the home. Not all of us are quite so willing to work for it, however. Here, we’re going to look at how you can better grow and manage a garden without having to put quite as much work into the painstaking maintenance they might otherwise take.



Be careful with what you plant

If you don’t want to spend all your time looking after plants in your garden, then you probably shouldn’t grow plants that are going to take a lot of work. Low-effort plants tend to be those that already grow in your climate so they don’t need quite as much care. Self-seeding vegetables and perennial plants also don’t take quite as much work as the alternatives.

Get tools that do more than one thing

If you’re taking the time to maintain your growing garden, then the least that you can do is get some tools that help you save a lot of time. Check out this Works GT Revolution review for an example of the kind of tool you might need. A good weed trimmer not only cuts weed, but trims the grass, prunes trees, and much more. Find tools that can do more than one thing so you can get more done in the garden with less time and less investment.

Make it take care of itself

There are parts of the gardening routine that can be automated too, believe it or not. The most obvious example is by using a good sprinkler system. This Orbit Garden Enforcer review takes a closer look at one of the more sophisticated motion-sensing systems that ensure the whole garden gets the moisture that it needs, allowing you to sit back and enjoy the show instead.

Bring it inside

If you don’t want to worry too much about the outdoors, who says you have to? Keep the exterior garden simple, with just a lawn to care for, by creating an indoor garden, instead. You might have to invest in a bit of a setup to ensure they get the UV light that they need but, otherwise, a little water and plant-food should be enough to keep them in good health.

Get a few tips

If you want to garden efficiently, then it’s a good idea to garden correctly. If you make a mistake today, you’re going to have to spend more time correcting it tomorrow. However, there are ways you can get specific advice on your garden. Alexa, the smart-home device, can offer all kinds of tips, including routine maintenance chores you should be taking care of and reminders on how to handle certain plants.

There’s no such thing as a garden that doesn’t take some work. Even if you bring it indoors. However, with the tips and tools above you can at least make it a little less time-intensive, giving you more time to enjoy it rather than having to coddle it all the time.
