Top Garden Landscaping Tips that can Save You Money
We love our gardens, especially in South Africa. Because of South Africa’s warm climate, our gardens are some of the best places to socialise, play, and relax. Our gardens are very important to us, and it goes way beyond beauty. It is also the place where we reconnect with family, interact with friends, and socialise with everyone who counts. This is why it is so important to keep our gardens in tip-top shape. It is not only about looking good; it is about providing the ideal atmosphere for the family and friends to hang out. And because we care about your garden, we have provided you with some cool garden landscaping tips to make your garden a great place to be:
- Check your angle: In Gauteng, you will inevitably experience some torrential downpours, thunderstorms, and hail flurries. This means that you have to design your garden according to where the water flows, and make the most of it. Hail can be devastating, but if you plant indigenous plants that can recover and reproduce quickly, you won’t have to deal with a hail-damaged garden for too long. It also helps to get a professional landscaper to assist with effective drainage. South Africa is prone to droughts and we need all the water we can get, so during one of these deluges, it helps to be able to store as much water as possible. A great landscaper can advise you on the best ways to direct and preserve rainwater for later use, and this means that you will also save money in the long term, and have access to water resources well beyond your municipal allowances.
- Save money: You can save yourself a whole lot of cash if you plan your garden well. Water-friendly gardens that use clever ways to direct water flow (and even dew!) can make a huge difference to the water needs of your garden. Not everybody is attracted to a rocky cactus garden, and while succulents are very water-wise, there are other measures you can take to have a lush, green garden without having to spend a fortune on water. It does help to get an expert in to give you some sound garden landscaping tips in order to make your garden more economical.
- Choose well: We would love to give everyone a fair chance in sunny South Africa, but when it comes to your garden and the knowledge needed to maintain it at the most economical price, it helps to be rather discerning when it comes to choosing a company to help you manage your garden. You need some useful garden landscaping tips from friends and family who can provide you with a reference of the companies they use.
