Low Maintenance Gardens

Low Maintenance Gardens Are Becoming Very Popular

"Low maintenance gardens can be high on impact, and they can be just as stylish as gardens that demand regular attention, "according to Peter McHoy in his book, Planning Your Garden. The rising cost of living is making low maintenance gardens more cost effective. However, it's important to plan in advance rather than just run head long into it. Although a low maintenance garden can be achieved relatively easily, if you fail to plan it properly it can end up more work than it should. Some things to consider when you are planning for a low maintenance garden are: Is it because you’re getting older? Is it because you just don't have time? Are you doing it because you don't like gardening? Do you still want plants and flowers? Is it due to financial restraints? Is it because you have no gardening skills? Although there may well seem like a...

Is It Time to Revive Your Garden?

Why revive your garden? Every product has a life cycle and so does your garden. Just as styles change, so does your garden change. Trees get bigger taking more nourishment out of the soil around them. Sunny spots turn to shady spots. Overcrowding suffocates new plant growth. Children grow up and no longer need their sand pit. You get the picture, your garden is a living creation and from time to time welcomes reviving – a refreshing new look! Your garden should blend with your home architecture and be practical for whatever purpose you design your garden for. Meaning that if the garden serves as a getaway from daily stresses, garden features that promote serenity and security should be incorporated from the design stage. What’s the style and look you’re wanting? Would you like something modern or something minimal and manageable? Choosing a style and/or theme beforehand will help you...

Tips and Ideas for Small Gardens

One of the challenges of small garden design is of course space. Consequently, you must be much more disciplined in your approach. It is especially important to prepare a plan where space is limited to ensure that the finished garden meets the practical requirements and looks great too.

Garden Planters Can Spruce Up Your Outdoor Space

Garden containers, flower pots and planters are an attractive and very practical way of decorating your garden, patio or conservatory and a little bit of imagination can work wonders. One problem with gardening nowadays is that many people have little or no backyard. This is why there are garden pots. These containers are available in a wide range of shapes, colours and sizes.

Is Your Garden Begging For A Refreshing Look?

Before entering your home, your garden is the focal point for a visitor. Is it welcoming or does it have a tired look? In addition, having an attractive garden will definitely boost the value of your property. Just as the cycle of life keeps changing, so will your garden need to keep changing. Consider how a garden changes from the needs of a single person, to a couple, to a home filled with children tearing around the lawn or simply playing in a sandpit. Then, in later life, having a raised garden saving a lot of bending when weeding and maintaining the garden. It is a good idea to think about the family needs and how well you will maintain the garden as you reach each stage in your life cycle. All gardens eventually have that tired look and feel, even if well maintained. At some stage they will need to...

The Benefits of Garden Water Features

Garden water features add a cool, lush look and feel to a garden. Water and the sound of running water are natural triggers that immediately cause the mind and body to relax. This is one of the main reasons why many people are choosing to create an inviting environment outside their home, so that relaxation therapy begins even before entering the home. The sound of running water has been shown to reduce stress levels as well as function as 'white noise' to blot out undesirable sounds.  This last benefit is especially desirable in urban areas where often yards and patios are close to neighbours and busy roads. Water fountains for gardens are a way to significantly increase your enjoyment of your garden space. As an added benefit to a patio, deck or garden, a water fountain also releases a small amount of moisture into the air through evaporation.  This evaporation...
