Having a garden full of blooming flowers and trees is a wish everyone wants to fulfil. No matter what the size of your garden is regular maintenance will always make it look good. In spite of having a regular upkeep routine, it might not look as good as you want it to look and something might seem to be missing. You can always take ideas from professional gardeners or better hire them if it fits you. Now that it is almost summer time and you would want to go out and enjoy the sun, the greenery and the breeze it is better to up the ante and implement some simple tips and tricks to get the required results. Here is a simple but effective checklist that will definitely make your garden look nothing short of amazing.
PRUNING ALWAYS NEEDS TO BE DONE AT THE RIGHT TIME
Your garden is no wild place which has to be left to itself. It should look as much a part of your house as any other room of your house. The grass turf and the tree branches should not be allowed to grow beyond a point. Bushcraft axes come in handy in such situations and can be used to trim down the tree branches very easily. Remember a garden should be pleasing to the eyes and untrimmed trees and an overgrown turf is the last thing that you would want to look at.
PLANT THE MOST COLOURFUL PLANTS AND FLOWERS
There are so many varieties of flowers and plants available for the summer season that one gets confused as to which ones should be planted. It all depends on your taste and how you have imagined the final picture of your garden. Choose the brightest coloured flowers for your garden to make it look more vibrant, so that everytime you look at the bloom it will lift your spirits up. Similarly plant perennial plants for they need not be replanted every year for a particular season and multiply themselves providing you with more tubers and plants for replantation.
DO NOT OVERCROWD YOUR GARDEN
Never forget that disproportion can ruin everything. A garden should be filled with pots, plants and trees but in the right proportions. One might get carried away with a particular thing to make the whole place look beautiful but actually you are ruining it. Crowding a garden is only going to make it ugly and ruin all your efforts in the process. Before designing a garden, always etch down a clear plan that makes its point that the garden is not getting overcrowded and is having everything in the right proportion without having any overwhelming effect.
DEWEEDING IS A MUST
This is no rocket science and you must have realised it yourself if you already have a garden that weeds are a perpetual eventuality and their growth rate can be baffling sometimes. Hence, try to deweed the turf and the beds as regularly as possible. If this is not done regularly, the growth can be so overwhelming that it will overtake the garden completely and your efforts to make it beautiful too.
LIGHTS ARE THE SECRET OF EVERY BEAUTIFUL GARDEN
Strategically placed lights in a garden can make it look dreamy and amazing. Have a nice time in your garden with beautiful, well placed lights in it. Use your artistic imagination and install something uncommon like lanterns, fairy lights or even solar lights to enhance the looks of your garden.
Gardens are a place to relax and revive. They provide you with that much wanted interface with nature in your comfort zone. Hence making your garden look good should be a priority.
