Trust me, more plants mean less work

The secret to less work in the garden is to have more plants. If you really want to simplify and get back to nature, than take a tip from Mother Nature herself and refuse to expose naked soil. Nature abhors a vacuum and so any space left between plants will be planted with airborne weed seeds. Fill in with groundcovers, add shrubs, add spots of color with perennials, annuals or set pots into the garden bed.
