compost from your yard waste bin will work magic on your plants. Other ways to help create a healthy soil ecosystem include the use of organic fertilizer, like fish emulsion and adding mycorrhizal fungi to your soil. The fungi benefit plants by helping them to absorb more nutrients. It’s a natural process
Other considerations:Even low-maintenance lawn alternatives need some maintenance: seasonal mowing, supplemental irrigation in times of drought and occasional weeding.Be sure to check with your local homeowner's

fragmented native plant communities and restoring damaged site systems. Sensible land management practices guide the homeowner’s efforts to rehabilitate expansive areas of mown lawn. Spaces carved from the landscape overlook stunning panoramic regional views, while new plantings define edges and thresholds
Slightly higher maintenance, as you might need to freshen the trench several times a year to keep the line of the bed sharp. Maintenance: You'll need to use your string trimmer frequently during the growing season to keep the edges neat and tidy.
Trench is low cost edge but requires more maintenance than other edges
the plantings blend with the natural landscape
Garden edges - Clump planting and mulched, planting bed w/ trench edges, blending into grassy area and wooded area

Looking for ideas for the lower pasture. Low maintenance, no mowing or watering and something that is welcoming for our guests.
DISCOVER WHAT DEER, BUNNIES, FOX EAT NATURALLY AND PLANT IT!!!!
Statue and sense of freedom in the garden planting
like the plants surrounding the focal item .. grasses in the background with lower plants and pathway through the center ..
You’ve created a wildlife habitat, so let the plants and the wildlife be who they are. I have to admit I fought with my fair share of baby bunnies, but once the garden thickened, I saw few of them eating plants I didn’t want them to destroy. Perhaps the plant diversity is teasing them to another food source
Fantastic statue against soft grassy plants and herbs!

with rock seem to be in full sun. can the idea in this picture be used in shady area(under canopy of trees) and look good? If so, what appropriate plants come to mind for zone 8? Thanks!
This is in Phoenix Arizona. All of the plants have some water to them. The lawn has a pop-up automatic spray system. The rest of the garden has a automatic drip system separated into zones. Trees, shrubs, desert accents, citrus and pots are just a few of the zones.
Tall desert plants. Like the exotic looking plants too
Mediterranean feel, large rocks, low grasses, but maybe a little too dry and sparse.
The use of the palm trees and drought tolerant plants together
other high-water plants near them, preferably close to the house and where they can get some shade in the hottest times of the year, to cut down on your overall watering.Design tip: Consider using artifical grass. Not only will you save water, but you'll also save on lawn maintenance, which can be tough

Love this natural look! Name of low growing grasses? Other plants?
Great spread of plants as ground over instead of mulch or lawn
Nothing mulches like a nice plant ground cover and a diverse, vastly more interesting and layered perennial bed.
