What are some examples of easy maintenance outdoor plants and flowers for yard decor?

I recently moved into my first house and the previous owner had lots of high maintenance vegetation. I’d like to spend time cultiuvating a produce garden and not really worrying about flowers etc but I would like some things to spruce up the yard. What are some examples of plants that need little to no care once placed in the ground that can liven up my yard a bit?

-Also, I’ve been told that plants native to my area are easier so just for your information: I’m in Southeast Tennessee.

If I wanted to go into landscaping for a career, would majoring in Garden Design help me?

I’ve always enjoyed working outside with the earth and plants. I thought about becoming a Landscaper for awhile but now I’m into computers. Just tonight I saw at this College’s website that I am thinking about going to, they have a major for Garden Design. Does that help with becoming a landscaper for a business like that?
