Everyone dreams of having a house that looks like it’s straight from a fairytale or a movie, but if you have a beautiful house and an unkempt and ugly garden, all the beauty of the house fades away.
If you are interested in having a gorgeous garden, but you don’t have time to care for it all day and you want to put in as little effort as possible into growing and maintaining it, you have to read the following lines to find out how you can do it.
Low maintenance grass
You might feel like it’s fun to go around the entire garden with the lawn mower, mowing all the grown grass, but the fact that you have to do this every week because it grows so fast will become tiring very quickly.
Just think about having a very stressful week at work, a week after which the only things you want to do are to sleep, watch TV, and catch up on the latest book you started reading, but having your me-time ruined because you have to take out the lawn mower again to deal with the grass. It would be unpleasant, right?
Let this be a problem of the past, and put in almost no effort at all into maintaining your grass and plants looking good by planting slow growing plants and grasses.
The best part is that they need tending to once every year, therefore you will have the gorgeous green look covering your entire property with minimum effort put in keeping it this way.
If you want to reduce any effort involved in maintaining your garden, you need to find a way to stop watering the whole thing yourself. This is mandatory especially for those who have large gardens that would take them hours to finish watering, and keeping in mind that this is an activity that must be done daily during summer, it would be a nightmare to walk around the whole garden with the hose in your hand every day for 3-4 months.
By installing water sprinklers from place to place making sure they cover the whole area, you won’t ever need to lift a finger again. In addition, the sprinklers can be set to start running at a certain hour everyday, therefore your garden will be watered even when you leave home to go on a much needed and deserved vacation.
Put the dark corners to use
Those dark corners around the garden where the light doesn’t reach are very unpleasant to the eye because you can’t plant anything there, taking away from the beauty of the scenery.
To make sure that even those dark corners are put to good use, you should put artificial plants and flowers in those areas.
Once you finish placing them neatly, you will see that everything seems more colorful and bright due to them. Also, giving the fact that they are artificial, it means you never have to worry about taking care of them.
