Kiwis who plan on landscaping their garden should know that it’s not as difficult as it seems, although hiring professional help would make it a lot easier.
For instance, some people want to build a glass house that would blend in with the landscaped front yard. Once you’ve decided on a design option, builders may help you in choosing the right greenhouse for your garden.
Budget and Design
Your budget would, of course, determine the scope of work involved in your landscaping project. Edenlite notes that those with a limited budget should prioritise the quality of materials that they use, including greenhouse spare parts.
While this may cause cutting back on other aspects, having high-quality materials saves time and money from maintenance and repairs over the long term. A minimalist design usually entails up to two plant types. You could choose to leave some open space for the next time you have a bigger budget on adding more varieties. Most home-owners do this during the spring because of the favourable weather.
The spring season won’t be over at least until November, which still gives you some time to work on your garden. If you’re expecting to harvest some produce from your mini-farm in October, the right timing is important for good quality and taste.
Celery, lettuces and potatoes are just some of the crops that are best harvested during this month. You shouldn’t let celery and lettuce remain unplucked in your garden too long, or else those won’t be edible. Take extra caution when harvesting potatoes as well, and doing it by hand is a better choice to avoid damaging the skin.
A landscaped garden depends on your desired activity when spending time outdoors. It could be tending to the flowers or raising different crops. What’s your preferred design for your front yard?
