Gardens that almost take care of themselves

“Home Care Packages Sunshine Coast” with Gardening!

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.

Self-watering

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.

Drought-resistant and native plants

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.
