Do things as necessary...pruning, for example, after flowerimg enables jobs to be done individually. Also if done annually pruning is easy amd quick.
I tend to do stuff in a frenzy.........whizz around the lawns, staking,weeding, everything is done fast.
Mulching is a great way to minimise weeding. Pinching out plants, doing the so called Chelsea chop, etc., enables plants to be grown without the work of staking. Hoeing in the veg patch on a dry ....best on sunny...day quickly eradicates weeds.
Grow perennials instead of annuals.....much less work and more economical.
