Designing a Low Maintenance Garden

Posted on February 26, 2014 at 10:08 am

Not everybody want a luscious green lawn, and some want a completely hassle free garden that doesn’t require maintenance each and every week like watering and weeding.

A typical low maintenance garden will be laid to patio or concreted, but you can still incorporate nice features to make it look appealing. Stone borders can be ideal and these are great if you wanted to add potted plants to make them look more decorative. Having a shaped patio area or perhaps a decking can also be an attractive element, and these can be found in many decorative designs.

Water fountains, ornaments and bird houses can be nice additions to bring more style to a low maintenance garden, and it’s these types of gardens that require virtually no maintenance throughout the year, and it can be as easy as having to spray some weed killer between seasons.

Hiring a Gardening Company

Posted on February 20, 2014 at 4:32 pm

Most companies which offer gardening services are able to accomplish the garden chores in a professional manner, finishing quickly. You can also expect a gardening company to be able to supply various plants which may improve the overall impact of the garden. This doesn’t mean that you stop being in the driving seat, as these companies depend upon the clients appreciation of their work.

If you really enjoy having a nice garden, but perhaps aren’t as able to do all of the necessary work, then you may want to consider outsourcing all of the hard work, and just enjoy the results. This isn’t the only reason why people go to gardening services though. In fact, much of the rented property in England which have gardens require this, as a lot of the residents are temporary, and by and large are unwilling to dedicate time to improving the garden when they won’t be there to benefit from it. Laws in the UK require some level of garden maintenance, so as to avoid other property prices in the area from being damaged.
