Easy care landscape plan for seniors

7 years ago

We are older seniors, still enjoying our own home, a bungalow. While we love spending time outdoors, we no longer have the energy to keep up with all our perennial beds so are looking for some simple garden designs in the new style of mass plantings of the same plant, simple, easy care, with lots of mulch in between. To that end, we have been ripping out all misbehaving plants, adding hostas, hydrangeas and coral bells to the existing shrubs, vines and day lilies, but would love to have a simple plan to work towards. Does anyone know of a book or plan for something like this? So far I have not found one, and think it would be a best seller, as there are a lot of us out there with the same dilemma who prefer our own homes to condo living, but are struggling with the extra work of our perennial gardens!
