Garden designs have evolved a great deal in the past few years. Even though some gardens are still built on old concepts of control over nature, many more are arising that have to do more with the spirit of cooperation between us and the beautiful elements that make up our gardens.
If you want your garden to be low-maintenance, you have to first stop trying to control it. Instead, pay close attention to what your plants need. Which ones require more sunlight or shade? Which ones are better equipped to handle droughts and which need more water and fertilizer? Also, make the same analysis for vegetables and trees. Simply apply organic fertilizers if you question how to make grass green. You might even need to move some saplings around.
Another good option is to use organic gardening materials and pesticides that don’t harm your plants. Organic materials will prevent any complications, so you can rest easy and avoid having to spend countless hours in the garden dealing with diseased plants, pests and other problems.
On a small and large scale, sustainable agriculture will help make your garden almost maintenance-free. Understanding how nature works instead of trying to push against its natural tendencies, and building any fences, decoration elements and sheds around your garden’s natural growth processes instead of interfering with them will be the best step to maintain a beautiful and thriving garden.
