Around four percent of Australian housing stock has been used or is being used as an Airbnb. That means there are about 350,000 unique listings, not including those on alternative platforms. So, essentially, 350,000 people have mastered the art of hosting, cleaning, and landscaping a lock and leave property.
The sheer volume of people doing it doesn’t mean that it’s easy, though. It just means that property hosts have scoured the internet for ideas on how to landscape their properties in a low maintenance way. And, now, you can too. Read on to learn some hassle-free landscaping ideas for lock and leave homes.
Focus on the Hardscape Elements
When people book Airbnb accommodation, they are quite often on holiday. They want to entertain, relax, and enjoy their surroundings. You can accommodate those needs and wishes with an entertainment-style outdoor area.
That means instead of gardens you have to maintain, you can opt for outdoor furniture on paved patio areas, built-in bench seating, and expansive deck areas that take up a significant portion of the backyard. You can then accessorise these areas with lighting and other fun elements. Gardens aren’t the be-all and end-all of landscaping design.
