    It’s about quality not quantity  

    There’s no need to pave everything over and create an entirely dull and lifeless area. Establish how much time you can realistically give to your garden and to which sections you most want to put that effort into. For example, having a flower bed or growing your own organic vegetables may be important to you. So you can spend quality time on maintaining them while minimising the work required in other areas. Lawns are one of the most attention-seeking parts of your garden. If this element of your garden is not that important to you, it can be replaced with beautiful paving, fake grass, gravel or decking.

    Make things convenient

    If these important areas of your garden are a considerable distance from your front door or shed, consider moving them closer for convenience sake. This will save you lugging heavy equipment to and fro. Staying with the theme of convenience, make sure you equip yourself with good quality gardening tools that make your outdoor jobs easier and more enjoyable. There are all sorts of nifty gardening gadgets available these days that do some very helpful things.

    Choose your plants and flowers wisely

    While there is no such thing as a zero maintenance plant, there do exist varieties that require much less care than others. These low-maintenance plants usually require a bit of preparation soil and watering. However, once they are established, they can just be left to look pretty in your garden. Plants and flowers such as clematis, nasturtium and geraniums are just some of these laid-back leafies. Remember to read the planting instructions carefully, so you plant them in a space that is big enough for their expected height and width. Otherwise, a growing plant placed in too small an area, will require regular pruning.

    Know your gardening shortcuts

    There are many shortcuts that can be applied to your garden to reduce its need for care. If possible, plant straight into the soil instead of using lots of pots. Containers require regular maintenance, from repotting to watering and moving around. Buying semi-established plants from the garden centre may seem like a time-saving technique, but they often require a lot of maintenance. Young plants will often grow quicker and require less aftercare.

    Gardening is a lovely and therapeutic hobby. It also gives you a sense of pride and keeps you in touch with nature. If you only have a little time to spare, hopefully, this post has shown you that it is possible to care for your outdoor space by applying these low maintenance tips.

    Happy gardening!
