A Vibrant Garden: Not Losing The Green Of Your Home

*this is a collaborative post with some tips for creating a vibrant garden*

Creating a vibrant garden doesn’t have to be as hard as it sounds. The garden is in fact that one place in the property of your home, where you can go to relax properly. Away from the stuffy indoors where all the heat from the home, the heating system and the human beings like to congregate. So when you do go outside, you want to feel like you’re in a vibrant space, full of color and aesthetically pleasing to the eye. However as you’d expect, the natural vegetation is susceptible to the changes in weather and season. This means you won’t always get the best looking garden to go and relax in which completely defeats the purpose in the first place. Keeping those brilliant colors of plants, flowers and other bits of green, requires you to keep on top of your game, by maintaining the garden. You have to feed and water it almost every single day, which will cost money to do so. However, there are alternatives to making this happen.

Individual spraying

If you have plants and flowers that often look down in the dumps, and unfortunately some of them end up dying, watering them regularly might not be enough. In fact, it might just be overkill because the plant has to make sure the roots are absorbing the water you supply it with. The hard work begins once the water is in the system, but even then, it’s a race against the sun. To sidestep this problem, get a spray bottle and fill it with water and the correct kind of feed. Then, begin to spray the leaves of the plants, along with the stem. Both the top and the undersides should be given a close quite a few squirts. Equally so for the flowers but be careful not to drown the pollen in the water.

Tree Maintenance 

Trees are a wonderful thing to have in your garden. They bring shade, shelter, and character. But they also can require work to maintain them, keep them healthy and not overgrown or causing issues to the rest of your garden or even your neighbours. Whilst you may opt to do some of the work yourself, you may find the idea of tidying branches or trimming a tree intimidating. A tree surgeon like Thor’s Trees can visit, assess and then do the hard work for you.

A low maintenance garden is one of those things that can be a bit of an oxymoron. You have to keep up with smaller tasks, but once the large tasks are dealt with, like the artificial lawn, the plants and flowers become your priority. Keeping them healthy, so they don’t lose that vibrant, healthy green color takes due diligence and the mindset to be regular in your affection toward the garden.
