Are you moving homes? Have you finally found a place that can home your dream garden? Do you have what it takes to make that dream come true? If not, then here are our experts’ tips and suggestions for you…
Get the help of professionals; initially at least
This may or may not depend entirely on if you have prior experiences with gardening; and also if you have the creativity and the resources to do it yourself. And like you would go to a labour hire companies Melbourne if you needed to hire people for your construction work, try and use professionals for both the gardening and the landscaping. Remember, hiring the professionals might cost you a bit initially; but they can get you your dream garden faster. Pay close attention to their advice…which you can make use of in time to come.
Make sure your soil is fertile
One of the reasons why even the most well maintained gardens don’t do well, is that the soil in it isn’t fertile. Overexposure to sunlight, dust and pollution can turn a once fertile garden into something you wouldn’t even recognize. If you’ve just bought the building, and have no idea what the garden and its soil has been exposed to, you can get professional help. Don’t worry though; there are many solutions like treating the soil, or importing soil, or even designing your garden around potted plants.
Truly there is a joy in seeing what you work hard for growing into something beautiful. And this is one of the biggest reasons why people enjoy gardening. But being smart is recognizing when you can enjoy seeing it happen from scratch, and when you have to use shortcuts. For example, if you dream garden has lush grassy carpets involved, then you can very well make sure it’s growing the traditional way. However, if you’re in a hurry (or if you don’t want to wait forever to see how your garden looks as a finished picture), we suggest turf laying Sydney.
Daily maintenance is vital
The thing with gardens is that they require a lot of care and attention. Even if you manage to get the help of professionals, and design and acquire the perfect garden of your dreams, it’s quite possible that you wouldn’t have anything to show of it in about six months; if you don’t know how to take care of it. If you do know how, yet lead a busy and hectic lifestyle that won’t allow you a lot of time with your precious garden, then you will either have to opt to plant only low maintenance plants (succulents are pretty hard to kill, we hear!), or for a full time gardener.
