Low-maintenance landscapingThe goal for low-maintenance landscaping is to have a beautiful space to spend time in and admire, while at the same time have something that doesn’t need to be taken care of day after day.

Vertical gardeningRenters and owners of condos, small homes, and apartments are appreciating the value of vertical gardening – one of the most creative ways to incorporate some green into their lives. These micro-sized green spaces can be maintained from spring to fall with the use of plants and seasonal flowers.If you want to try out vertical gardening, be sure to place it in a location that receives sunlight and is easy to water.
