Garden Maintenance: How Often Is Best
This is a question we often get asked but there is no hard and fast rule, it really is up to each home owner.
We maintain our clients gardens every week in summer and every alternate week in winter for homes with a lawned area. If you don’t have a lawn then every second week throughout the year is the option we advise our clients take.
Garden Maintenance Tips
If you do your own garden maintenance we advise you to spend a couple of hours in your garden daily. This keeps you on top of all that happens in the garden, so if pests or disease infestation takes place you will know about it almost immediately and will be able to take action sooner, thereby minimising damage. We do have the best climate here on the KZN coastline, so take advantage of being out in your garden enjoying nature for free, getting a tan for free, a gym session for free, therapy for free and such satisfaction from seeing your plants grow from seeds to beautiful blooms.
Start a compost heap. There is no excuse for throwing all your kitchen scraps into the bin any longer.
Install an irrigation system that is coupled to a Jojo tank. Even in this drought you could be watering using grey water pumped from your Jojo tank making watering a breeze.
