Looking after your garden can be a hassle, but when you get it right, you can enjoy the beauty of your plants and flowers for the entire year. While gardening is very much a seasonal thing, this doesn’t mean that you can only enjoy a good view during the summer months. In order to keep your garden looking great for all twelve months of the year, here are some things that you should do on a regular basis.
Keep the bugs away
One of the things that can ruin your garden within a matter of days are bugs. Allowing bugs, rodents and other pests to get into your garden and start having some fun can be very damaging to your garden, not only in the short term but in the long term too. You can put down pellets to keep slugs and other nasty bugs away from your beautiful flowers, and putting a bottle of water strategically placed near your plants will keep away cats and other pets.
Revamp the look
If you want to give yourself some inspiration and motivation for looking after your garden, there’s nothing better than revamping it and giving it an entirely new look. If you have the time, energy and the money to do so, choose a good time of year and get a garden landscaping Sydney company to come and do some work on your garden. This could be installing a new patio, laying down some new turf or even putting some larger plants in the garden to stop your property being overlooked by neighbours or passers-by.
Tidy up throughout the year
During the fall and when the leaves start falling off the trees, tidying up your garden can stop it looking messy and untidy. While you might enjoy the crisp brown leaves and the autumnal look which comes with it, there comes a time when you have to sweep up a bit in order for your garden to look in great shape.
Add more colours
Even during the colder months, you can still add more colour to your garden by adding plants with red or purple leaves and different shades of green. Many plants and shrubs are able to last all year round, so you don’t have to worry too much about them dying out or getting damaged if the weather is particularly hot or cold.
Put some furniture in the garden
Not only will this encourage you to spend more time in the garden, but if you have furniture there, you’re more likely to have family and friends around for social gatherings and barbecues, which means you’ll also be more likely to tidy up and keep your garden in great condition. Having some paving flags put down could also remove some of the grass and turf already in your property garden, which means that the maintenance levels required will be lower, and you’ll be more likely to have the time to keep it in shape.
