Drop the Watering Can and Enjoy These Low Maintenance Outdoor Plants

Spend less time water and more time admiring the beauty of your garden.

Gardening is just one of the many joys that come with homeownership. However, watering can often feel like a labor of love we could do without. This is the first year I have had a garden and I can already say I am kind of over lugging heavy watering cans and fighting with a hose that seems to kink with every step I take. Next year I plan on planting a few less plants that require so much water and thought I would share some of my favorite finds with you.
Do you have any low-maintenance beauties to share? Please let me know about them in the comments section below.
