A home with a beautiful garden is a source of pride for the homeowner and a delight to those that can see it. As anyone that has spent time under the hot sun in the weed and soil know, there is a lot of hard work that goes into keeping these little oases. But what if you could have a garden that could almost look after its self?
If it sounds too good to be true, then you’re mostly right, there will never be a garden that doesn’t need a little tender, love, and care from time to time, but there are things that you can do that make the garden not as needy.
Fact is, the weather on the Sunshine Coast can be tricky for a garden. The heat, possible draught, extreme weather conditions can leave a garden a little dry. A self-watering system can help you keep on top of the garden’s moisture problems in a variety of ways. Some systems include a timer that will automatically give the plants some much needed H2O at a time that you set. Other systems include an “always on” with a drop feed of water to your plants. This allows water usage to be at a minimum but keeps your garden well hydrated.
Having amazing plants from all over the world might get you into a flower show, but they can be time consuming to take care of. Australian native plants are used to the sometimes-harsh climate that Australia offers so can not only withstand all that is thrown at them but thrive. The same can be said for those drought-resistant plants that don’t need as much water to flourish as other plants.
A combination of these tactics could free up a lot of your time without sacrificing the beauty of your garden. You could also be eligible for a gardener to come assist you with the green thumb through your home care package.
