Sophisticated, whimsical and plush gardens are beautiful to look at and enjoy every day. Their hypnotic colors and beaming life of fawn and fauna brings a new and very-much-needed layer of enjoyment. It’s great to sit back and watch the daily goings-on in your garden when you have such a complex ecosystem. For those who aren’t experienced in gardening, soon it can become a little more than you bargained for. The maintenance of such luxurious and attractive gardens can be too much for many of us. No wonder those who can afford such masterpieces in their home hire professional gardeners to upkeep them. A garden redesign to something a little more simple and easier to control may give you that dose of tranquility for much longer.

Make some room

First things first, give the lawn some room. Too many plants and flowers, simply overshadow the lawn and don’t allow it to be fully appreciated. Bear in mind that the lawn isn’t just a flat piece of grass, it’s a base for many activities such as sports, barbecues, playing with the family pet etc. so make a border, outline how far the reach of the lawn shall be. Clearing out the things you don’t need, requires you to be mindful of how you do so. You can’t just throw a large pot plant away in the dustbin, it needs to be professionally removed. Hire a waste removal company before you get started. Since it is vegetation, recycling the waste and rubbish will also help the planet to stay cleaner.

Flowerbed patches

The humble flower bed is so overlooked in the modern era of gardening. They are less hard work to plant and maintain that the modern equivalent of bordered territories and sectors if you will. However, they’re simple to create. After uprooting a patch of grass, dig a hole about a foot deep and border off this patch. It could be at the corner of your lawn or at the foot of it when you enter out into the back garden. Put a border around the edge of the flower bed, such as a couple layer of bricks or rough stone. You may also choose to create the border completely out of pebbles instead. Fill the now dug hole, with top quality compost. Organic mulch is just as good. Plant your flower seeds during early spring, and water them regularly; up to two times a day at least. You could also give the flowers nutritious feeds that will not only strengthen them but make their colors even brighter and more solid. Try not to plant large flowers next to other large plants. They will compete for water and food so it’s best to break them up with smaller more sporadic wildflowers.

A garden is the only part of a home where you can take a deep breath and breathe in fresh air. There’s no need to shell out lots of money to buy tranquility. A simple garden, yet beautiful takes less manpower to maintain and stands a better chance of surviving the harsher weather.
