Low Maintenance Plantings, Goal Of Home Owners Landscaping for minimum maintenance is the modern goal in the planning and design of home properties. Low - maintenance landscaping requires selection of plants, nurserymen point out. For example, select hedges that require little or no trimming or clipping. It requires open lawn spaces for easy mowing. Tree trunks should be surrounded by circular plantings of ground cover to eliminate the necessity for mowing close to the tree. Mulching should be used freely in flower beds and around shrubs such as roses, in order to eliminate weeding. Flush paving should be used around lawn obstructions such as clothes poles, gas and water vent pipes, etc. All paved areas should be flush with the lawn to make mowing easier. Ground covers should be used in all difficult-to-mow areas. Steel or aluminum curbing provides a sharp line between flower beds, lawn and drives; keeps grass from spreading to beds. Avoid sharp corners. Informal lines, gentle curves make it easier to mow the lawn and to Committee Dines At Holiday Inn Members of the Homemaking committee of Women of the Moose concluded their meetings for the year with a dinner last week at Holiday Inn. Later they went to the home of Mrs. Arthur Levene, 1287 S. Chambers St., where se* cret pals of the past year were revealed. Mrs. Zelma O'Malley, chairman, was presented with a purse of money by the committee. move other equipment. Gentle curves provide continuous mow* ing, eliminate "push and pull" mowing. Both landscape architects and landscape nurserymen have stressed low-maintenance in recent years in order to allow more leisure time.
