Low Maintenance Lawn – With increased rainfall instead of snow fall, topsoil is eroding quickly. The United Nations Food & Agricultural Organization claims topsoil, as needed, could be gone by 2050 if such rainfall continues. What can be done to still have a beautiful and lush yard, without damaging the soil or surrounding environment, is install a various array of natural and artificial decorations which take little upkeep and displace minimal soil. 2020 is the year to show off your personality, so if you like it, install it! Instead of a small walkway with an expanse of grass surrounding it, install an elegant hardscaped path to your front door. Perhaps the addition of statues, patios, or small shrubs, is the direction you are choosing to go. All of these options are going to keep your property easily maintainable and at the forefront of the 2020 trends.
