A landscaping scheme that incorporates rock, mulch, and plantings that, once in place, require little or no further expense, upkeep, or work such as watering or mowing, thus saving the owner time and money. A combination of landscape and cheapskate.
Tom was proud of his home's small yard because it was a total cheapscape designed with river rock, pachysandra, ground ivy, and evergreens but no grass or gardens. He hadn't pulled a weed or touched a lawnmower for five years, ever since he'd finished designing this layout!
