Low Maintenance Landscaping Options

The fall season is here! It's getting colder outside and low maintenance landscaping can be great because it is less work for you during these colder months. Also, you may have less time around these upcoming holiday months and now that school is back in session to take care of your landscape. Paradise Landscaping is here to give you a few low maintenance landscaping ideas. To have any of these ideas made a part of your landscape, give our landscaping company at the Lake of the Ozarks a call today at 573-964-6515.


Low Maintenance Landscaping Options


A large outdoor patio
Outdoor patios can be perfect for those fall holiday parties and get-togethers. Also, they have the added perk of covering a good chunk of your land, creating less yard work for you. Paradise Landscaping specializes in hardscaping and can design an intricate patio for you. We will work with you to make sure we design the patio you are needing.

Mulch beds
Mulch is great for low maintenance landscaping because you don't have to water it or mow it. Mulch also fertilizes your plants and can add a nice aroma to your backyard.

Potted mums
Who doesn't love a pretty mum during the fall season? Potted plants, in general, can be very easy to take care and are portable. Simply water them about 3 times a week. Plus, you can move them out of the way if you are throwing an outdoor Halloween party or just having a ton of people over. Mums also can bring some needed color to your space.

Plant lavender throughout your landscape.
Lavender only needs to be watered once or twice a week and it can come back year after year. Talk about the gift that keeps on giving! Also, lavender can bring a nice aroma to your backyard.

Use artificial grass in your landscape.
Artificial grass doesn't require watering or mowing which can make it a great low maintenance addition to your landscape.

Lawn Irrigation FAQs

With everything in your busy life, it can be very easy to forget to water the lawn. From dropping off the kids at school, working, grocery shopping, and anything else that may be in your normal daily routine, the time can fill up pretty quickly. Keep your lawn healthy by getting an irrigation system at the Lake of the Ozarks. Paradise Landscaping can take care of that for you. Call us at 573-964-6515 for your quote today! Keep reading for the answers to a few frequently asked questions regarding lawn irrigation.


Lawn Irrigation FAQs


Q: How often should my lawn be watered?

A: It depends on the type of soil you have, but typically your lawn will need to be watered at least 2 to 3 times per week. This can also vary depending on the weather and how often it rains.

Q: Will my water bill raise by a lot if I have an irrigation system installed?

A: Typically, having an irrigation system installed can actually save you money because your grass is being watered more efficiently than before. However, everyone is different and has different habits so this answer can depend on your specific situation.

Q: Will an irrigation system save me time?

A: Yes, an irrigation system can certainly save you time because some systems allow you to set your watering schedule up on a timer. At this point, all you have to do is sit back and allow your grass to be watered for you, which can free up your time for other things. Having an irrigation system installed can be way less labor intensive as well.



Q: Will the type of soil I have in my yard affect how often my lawn needs to be watered?

A: The type of soil you have in your hard can affect how often your lawn needs to be watered. For example, if your lawn contains sandy soil, it may need to be watered more than a lawn that only contains silty clay soil. If you are confused on how often your lawn should be watered, it can be best to check with your landscaping professional first, before doing anything. You don't water to over water or under water your lawn. Doing so can damage your lawn and cause you to have to spend even more money having it fixed.

Bring Fall to Your Landscape

Fall will be here before you know it and people are getting fall fever already! This season can be so calming, from the pumpkin spice treats to the beautiful fall colors - what's not to love? Bring some of this fall beauty to your landscape this year with help from the best landscaping company at the Lake of the Ozarks. Paradise Landscaping is here to list a few changes you can have made to your landscape to inspire that festival fall feel. Call 573-964-6515 to make incredible changes to your landscape this season.


Fall Themed Changes You Can Make to Your Landscape


Plant Mums
What says FALL more than some festive mums planted in your yard? While most plants may stop growing at the end of summer, mums are ready to keep growing! This makes them a perfect plant to start in fall. Also, they come in many colors, which allows you to pick your favorite fall colors, perhaps different shades of orange?

Start a Fall Vegetable Garden
There are several cool season vegetables that are great to start a garden with in the fall, including but not limited to:

  • Carrots
  • Kale
  • Lettuce
  • Rutabaga
  • Swiss chard
  • Brussel sprouts
  • Cabbage
  • Kohlrabi
  • Radishes
  • Spinach
We can help by handling your hardscaping and structuring of where you want your new vegetable garden to be. This is something you will probably have for a long time, so why not have a professional who has been doing this sort of thing for years lay out a design for the structure of your garden, then build it for you.




Plant Fall Colored Trees
One of the best things about fall is all the changing colors of the leaves. The yellows, browns, and oranges all blended together can make for a very pretty sight. Why not have this in your own personal landscape? Have some fall-color trees planted. A professional landscaping company in Lake Ozark can help you decide what types of trees can work best. Here are a few examples:

  • Gingko
  • Redbud
  • Japanese maple
  • Chinese pistache
Consult with your landscaping company first to make sure you have the space for a growing tree in your yard. Also, ask about ongoing maintenance of the tree. Make sure you choose something that is realistic for you to be able to take care of or to hire someone to take care of.



Keep your beautiful fall landscape lush with an irrigation system. Proper irrigation is needed to assist in the growing and maintenance of landscapes during periods of inadequate rainfall and Paradise Landscaping can install a system for you... Paradise Landscape, Irrigation, and Pool Maintenance is well known as the best landscape design company at Lake of the Ozarks, call 573-964-6515 for your free quote today!
