Busy people often want low maintenance, child friendly gardens. We all have a lot less time on our hands and want to spend our leisure time enjoying our garden, not maintaining it.
There may be some aspects of gardening you enjoy such as mowing the lawn or looking after plant pots but sometimes you may just not have the time. In general low maintenance gardens they tend to be more hard landscaping involved like patios and paved areas, brick walls, gravel, slate, decking and pergolas etc., and less soft landscaping, like turf, garden beds but turfed areas are great for the children to play on. Low maintenance gardens doesn’t mean no maintenance (that would be a yard laid to concrete) but a regular routine of small maintenance jobs should keep your garden in check.
We understand the problems and consider ourselves skilled in the design of low maintenance gardens using hard landscaping, paving, gravel and careful planting to great effect.
