I don’t know about you, but my garden is a real bug bear for me. I am not a huge fan of creepy crawlies, dirt, and the like and so garden maintenance is definitely the lowest priority of my household chores list. I have recently however researched a lot surrounding gardens and how to neaten up and keep tidy gardens with ease. That’s why I have put together a little guide on how to sort out, and keep your garden looking lovely.
Pinterest Is Your Best Friend
Hands up who doesn’t love a good Pinterest board. From weddings to birthdays and even recipes, Pinterest has it also. What it also has is a huuuuge array of garden inspo. From large gardens full of fruit trees, to tiny weeny zen gardens, there is so much to look at, and so many ideas. I have created several different hidden boards that have everything from the types of flowers I’d love, to how to grow my own vegetables.
Work Out What You Need A Professional For
If the idea of getting down and dirty is still something that you balk at the thought of, then there’s no shame in enlisting gardening services. From a full on landscape architect to someone that just mows and trims your lawn every couple of weeks, it really does pay to have a professional take care of the things you can’t or won’t do. It frees up time for you to be able to do the things you really enjoy. Isn’t that so much better?
Set Up A Garden Budget
If you are really serious about sorting out your garden, and subsequent maintenance, I would recommend setting up a garden budget both before you do any work, and after. Have a look at some local garden quotes get some recommendations from friends, have a google on how much work and therefore budget your favourite flowers may well need.
Head To Your Local Supermarkets Aswell as Garden Centres
Once you’ve got some budgets in mind, you can start shopping! Garden centres will of course be one of your first thoughts, and while you definitely can get specialist things and beautiful ornaments, large supermarkets are also one to be considered when shopping. They will often have a garden aisle where you can pick up things cheaper than a lot of garden centres.
