Opt For Low-Maintenance Groundcover

Add greenery without the upkeep of a garden.

English ivy is a great option for yards with large trees and shaded areas. You can still enjoy a lush backyard without the work of gardening every weekend. Groundcovers are easy to care for if you're going to be at the cottage every weekend and can't commit to a high-maintenance garden in the city.
