Do you have a garden with no grass? Or do you want one? At home or at the office, when it comes to a grass garden, a lawn can be high maintenance, take up valuable space, and be a little too traditional for your tastes. The good news is that a garden doesn’t have to have grass or, at least, doesn’t have to be dominated by a lawn.
Studies show that when employees have access to a garden (or, indeed any green but preferably outdoor space), they are happier and more productive. Even a green view can raise employee sprites, especially if those employees are confined to an indoor space for most of the day. So, if you’re lucky enough to have a garden where you work, you would do well to nurture it. If no one is using the space, find out why and make some changes.
Even if you’re an expert gardener, you might not have the time or energy to invest in creating the perfect outdoor space. You might have thought about hiring a professional landscaping company but worried that it would be too expensive or require too much input – input you simply don’t have the time to give.
Don’t despair – the opposite is actually true! Hire the right landscaping company and you will be enjoying your new garden sooner than you think for less than you think.
