10 Best Low-Maintenance Outdoor Plants

If your company has only allotted only a minimal budget for outdoor plants and landscaping, that’s perfectly alright. This is because one of the best things you can do to stay within budget is to go about choosing plants that will not have to be frequently maintained. Doing so will eliminate the need for a weekly or bi-weekly crew, subsequently saving your business money without compromising the outer appearance of your commercial property.

Low maintenance plants

Here is a list of the top 10 low-maintenance plants recommended for storefronts, office buildings, co-ops, restaurants and more!

Mexican Feather Grass

This type of ornamental grass is affordable, pest-resistant and practically drought-proof, which is why it makes great outdoor plants for those who are wanting to do very little watering, fertilizing or spraying.

Variegated Ribbon Grass 

Ribbon grass is not only beautiful, it also makes a great filler and doesn’t require much maintenance. This particular variation is relatively small (only grows to about a foot high), making it ideal for placing in small-medium plant containers.

Elijah Blue Fescue

The icy blue color of this ornamental grass gives it a decorative quality, and the fluffy seed heads that bloom at the beginning of summer are virtually resistant to heat and drought.

Avalanche Feather Reed Grass

The foliage produced by this tall grass is a bright green color and has a white stripe all the way down the center, delivering an ornamental grass that is easy to landscape with. It likes full sun and will grow to be about 4-5 feet tall.

Golden Sage

Sage is an herb used to flavor savory dishes, but it is also a decorative plant that is easy to care for. The plant produces a lovely fragrance and grayish leaves that build dimension without demanding too much attentions.


Native to North America, this perennial evergreen roots deep and has the potential to survive for hundreds of years! The plants are drought-resistant and there’s no need to fertilize unless you deem necessary.

Wooly Thyme

This perennial herb is perfect for ornamental use around entrances because it’s decorative and unique. The fuzzy texture of the plant is intriguing and the silvery color is subtle.

Dwarf Spruces

Dwarfed spruces are an excellent choice to plant around the office because they grow slowly, require little pruning and adapt well to container living. The roots can get a bit unruly, so make sure you plant these in some of our extra large tree planters.


If you’re wanting to add a pop of color to your landscape, we recommend goldenrod as one of many excellent outdoor plants. The yellow buds are bold and bright, while the plant itself is easy to maintain.

Fountain Grass

This is the go-to plant for industrial landscapers because it can be used along borders or planted in one of our fiberglass plant containers.
