In a busy and bustling lifestyle, it can be hard to find the time to create and maintain your landscape. The grass starts to become overgrown, whilst plants are shrivelling and dying. But for those that love outdoor entertaining, this can be embarrassing and detrimental. This is why we have put together a list of ways to convert your garden into a low maintenance area.
One of the easiest ways to maintain your garden is by installing high quality synthetic turf. Not only does this have a real aesthetic, but it does not require the usual mowing or trimming that natural grass does. More than that, it takes no watering to have luscious grass all year round.
Although they look pretty, flowers can be hard to maintain if you do not have the time or the knowledge to maintain the garden bed. Although they integrate an array of colours within your landscape, there are so many other ways to do this – such as through hard landscaping.
This can be done through paving and concrete colourations used, as well as through garden lighting and water features. Take your pick!
Native Australian Plants
The more native the plants are to the landscape, the easier they are to maintain. They are able to thrive in the landscape, and require less watering and feeding than exotic plants that aren’t suited to the Australian climate. Luckily, there are some incredible choices for plants native to Australia.
Irrigation systems are the saving grace for those who don’t have the time to get into the garden as often as they would like to. They’re not only highly sustainable, but is the easiest way to ensure that your garden is hydrated. It saves you the time that it takes to water your garden, whilst also improving the growth of your plants due to the selected water levels that are being fed to the plants.
Slower Growing Plants
One of the best ways towards a low maintenance garden is by having slower growing plants. The way to do this is by avoiding plants that are known to grow vigorously, and instead move towards slower growing plants.
