Depends on the options you choose.
Here's this. The first step is the most important and is where you will include your desire for low maintenance into the plans.
I live across from a park and half of the area is xeric and receives almost no maintenance (I see some people who live in the neighborhood tending to parts of it in rare occasion)
Seriously though, weeds tend to take the most maintenance but if you use weed cloth under your mulch you just solved 90%
Just do some research using your desires and what you know about the yard from precipitation to shade. Once you start to figure out what plants you want to use you can research their care requirements. Each plant is different so some you can stick in the ground and never worry about again all the way to plants that need regular attention.
Also you'll see one of the principles of xeriscaping does include turf as part of it. Nothing wrong with a patch of turf in between, especially if it gets used. I think the issue most of us here see with lawns is having ba majority of your property dedicated to turf. Don't think I'm the only one who see a problem keeping the patches of.lawn that will be enjoyed.
