If you live in California like me, grass just isn’t practical anymore.  Especially when you have a dry climate as we have.

You can choose synthetic turf but that can be pricey……..especially if you have a large yard.

Fortunately, there are cheap ground covers that require low maintenance.

We have listed some of the best landscape ground cover that require little to no maintenance and will make your yard look beautiful.


Rocks are attractive ground covers that require little to no maintenance.  Depending on what you have planted surrounding the area, you’ll only have to clean leaves and other debris which is easily remedied with a leaf blower.

The benefits are countless with rocks.  Outside of being affordable, they can be used as a pathway, driveway, or as a landscape. 

They come in a variety of sizes and colors that will match virtually any landscape.
