TIPS TO GIVE YOUR GARDEN NEW LIFE
Common mistakes that we frequently advice customers on are the structural layout and the successful positioning of focal features within a garden. The lack of a proper design might find a keen gardener struggling on a trial and error basis to settle with a final flowerbed. It might be the actual shape of a flowerbed that is incorrect and not the actual plants and objects within the flowerbed that causes confusion.
Garden ornaments may be positioned incorrectly in the garden and an expert eye might be all you need to find the ideal spot for these. Some garden ornaments might just need a fresh coat of paint to transform them into something better. Stacked away items may be reused or recycled and added to the garden to create interest and save a lot of unnecessary costs in the garden. A creative mind might just know how to create a unique garden with unique features.
Did you know that many plants multiply themselves within the garden and can be re-used in other garden spaces? Many plants can be split up and propagated instead of purchasing new plants to fill empty gaps in the garden.
Plants need to be grouped together according to their actual growing requirements. This will save a lot of time, effort and money in keeping your plants happy and healthy. Remember to feed your plants regularly as good plant nutrition is essential to have plants performing and not just surviving.
Good garden advise will be to focus on one specific priority area instead of attempting to beautify the entire garden bit by bit. The impact of one successful area will be most satisfying and encourage one to invest in other areas of the garden.
