Our team recently undertook a delightful albeit challenging garden makeover, with the most rewarding outcome. Here we take you through the full story, section by section. This is the garden of a home that is just over 10 years old, and nothing has ever been changed from the initial garden layout. Read our story of this makeover, section by section. Watch the before and after videos and check out the awesome photos.
Eco Balance Landscaping recently won a SALI Gold award in the Landscape and Turf Maintenance category for Kiribati, Zimbali - In this blog post we share some of this beautiful, water-wise garden’s earthly story with you.
With the holiday season looming, if your garden has suffered over the last couple of months due to the drought and water restrictions, then you'll need to aggressively implement a strategy for bringing your plant life back to a healthy state. Part of this is ensuring that your plans for January and February consist of not only water retention, but also efficient splitting, dividing and pruning to make sure ever square meter of garden is maximising intake.
Mulched soils are the perfect arena for healthy plant growth. Especially in a drought, all that water retention is deeply appreciated by plant roots. While it is still necessary to water plants, if you've been a recent buyer of a Jojo tank unit and have commenced rain water harvesting, you can easily target root zones with your reclaimed water.
In this dreadful season of drought, it is important to understand the role of mulch and the basic need of its benefits for not only your plants, but the soil that feeds them. Its benefits are quite vast to cover in one post, but we'll unpack your soil first and then we'll point to specific drought indications that could potentially creep up in the coming summer months.
