Low-maintenance garden ideas


Create a beautiful garden without the hassle. Just follow these three easy low-maintenance garden ideas for an outdoor space that brings you joy every time you’re in it. 


Low-maintenance garden idea number 1: Big plant pots, little upkeep

Select big plant pots over small ones – trust us, this is the number one low-maintenance garden idea for a reason!

The more soil you can put in a pot, the more water it will be able to retain, so you can water the plants less often. Big pots allow multiple small plants to flourish as there will be room for roots to grow, so regular repotting won’t be an issue. Plants in big pots will get less exposure to temperature fluctuations too, which means they’ll be stronger and healthier. 


Low-maintenance garden idea number 2: Keep it simple with shrubs and plants 

Resilient greenery like shrubs and evergreens won’t need digging up every year. These types of plants can withstand most weather conditions, so opt for these and you can have confidence knowing that you won’t be winter gardening 

Direct Plants’ 10 pack of mixed shrubs provides the perfect selection of low-maintenance garden plants as they’re very easy to grow and can be left outside in the garden all year round.  

Each pack is a surprise selection, but no two plants will be the same, there will be a good mixture of evergreens and deciduous flowering shrubs – so your garden can continue to thrive in all seasons.
