A key factor in setting any garden up for healthy sustainability is the attention to potential threats and opportunities that creep up throughout the garden lifecycle. A professional gardening service always performs key checks to ensure invasive plants and or animal species aren’t propagating in your garden beds.
Keep an Eye on Invasive Species
Without attention to these invaders, one can easily lose months in growth or end up replacing costly plant life because of various parasitic weeds and insects that use your garden as a springboard to grow. You can view a list of invasive species here - who knows, you may spot some in your garden!
While there are various methods of eradicating these foreign disasters, we specialise in the safe and environmentally friendly methods that are safe ways to remove pests without destroying the indigenous species that are vital to your landscape.
Split and Divide to Create Space
There are many benefits to splitting and dividing plants. Let’s talk about growth: Plants that become too overcrowded can become stressed, leading to dilapidated foliage and a suffering plant. Eventually the soil can become depleted of nutrients, inviting fungi and even pests, as mentioned above. Additionally, plants that aren’t divided can spoil your view, or invade other unwanted areas of your garden. Overcrowded plants also tend to produce smaller flowers and leaves, so it really is in the best interest of your garden ecosystem to have a continuous plan for growth.
Lastly, it is a financially responsible way of maintaining your garden, as splitting and dividing your current plants will reposition them to foster more and even growth, so you don’t have to replace damaged areas by buying new plants, or hiring specialists to remove large dying areas.
