No mow lawn

Asked October 27, 2019, 11:19 AM EDT

What are the best grasses/clovers/flowers/etc to use for a no/low mow lawn in the Philadelphia area? We are trying to stay with native varieties of all plants inn our yard but realize that isn’t a always possible. Thank you.

All outdoor plantings from grass to flower beds degrade into weeds in a couple of seasons of neglect. They all require mowing, weeding, and occasionally feeding and water. White clover is a good plant because it stays small but weeds and volunteer grasses will soon show up and spoil the effect.The only way to avoid working in the yard is to hire a lawn service.
