Many people have a garden attached to their property, but not everyone wants to make full use of it. Some people love nothing more than to create a garden that’s bursting with flowers, shrubs and fruits and vegetables. They would spend a lot of time in their garden if they could, and they simply love it when the garden is in full bloom.
Low maintenance gardens
But what if you’re not a gardener? Does this mean that you will have to put up with a bare-looking somewhat dilapidated garden? No, it doesn’t mean this at all. Just because you don’t want to spend hours with your fingers in the soil, it doesn’t mean that you cannot have a garden that you love. There are some very simple solutions around that will help you have a lovely garden that is very low maintenance.
My friends’ partner has a lovely garden, but there’s nothing natural in it at all. He’s decided to lay some artificial grass, and place some expensive-looking garden furniture on it. It’s not my idea of a garden, but he’s more than happy to have it that way. He’s not a natural gardener and simply doesn’t get any joy out of tending to his garden, so why should he?
Good looking, low maintenance gardens
Some people will go so far as laying paving slabs down, adding some pebbles or small stones to their borders and buying good quality Artificial Topiary that comes in all shapes and sizes. I have to say that you can create a good looking garden if you know what you’re doing.
You don’t have to dig up large patches of earth and create a vegetable plot if you don’t want to. You can always leave the grass as it is, and add some garden statues, a bit of topiary here and there, and you can even buy some beautiful archways that could potentially become a wonderful centerpiece.
Low maintenance garden with flowers
If you want to enjoy having a low maintenance garden, but you would also like to have some flowers, then you may want to think about using pots. Pots of all shapes and sizes are available, and stood on a hard flat surface, they could make your garden look good. You will of course have to prune them as and when you need to, but you won’t have to do it every day.
As long as you know what kind of garden you want, you can ensure it’s low maintenance, while also looking good.
