Your yard is a space for everyone in your family to enjoy; keeping this fact in mind it is a good idea to landscape your garden with all the features that makes it a fun and relaxing outdoor space for everyone. But with harsh Australian weather conditions, it can be difficult to maintain a lush garden, but read on for some landscaping and gardening tips to dress up your outdoor space...
Landscape your Garden with Different Spaces
Create garden spaces to serve all family members, like a patio or sitting area for adults and smaller open spaces for children to play. Lawns and pathways give that beautiful lush look to your yard. You might also want to complement that green look by planting trees and shrubs along the pathways.
Outdoor Landscaping Materials
Selecting the right materials for landscaping your garden defines the overall character of your yard. Stone paver, pebbles and tiles can help create a natural look. A wooden or stone bench at the edge of your yard creates a cosy sitting area to spend a relaxed evening. Different types of lighting enhances the night time appeal. Your garden can also be landscaped and designed around a water feature.
Plant Fast-Growing Shrubs
The hot sunlight and frequent dry spells in Australia can be a challenge when it comes to getting that green, shady look for your garden. One way to get over this issue is to use fast growing plants to cover up dry patches. For example, ornamental grasses grow fast, they are hardy, low maintenance and require very little water. Some varieties also give beautiful flowers which add vibrant colour to your garden space.
Creeping Vines for Fences
Climbing vines and creepers are an excellent option if you want to cover a problem area or a fence in your yard. Creeping vines can be trained to grow along a specific area, usually with the use of a wire or mesh and regular pruning. Additionally these plants are low maintenance and require less water to thrive, making them a perfect solution for landscaping your garden.
Adding Colour and Form
Small potted plants are easy to maintain while also providing colour and texture to your garden. Use small, fast growing plants that thrive in your climate. A potted plant with brightly coloured flowers placed strategically gives a new dimension to your entire yard space.
Landscaping and gardening can be a fun project if you are the do-it-yourself type of person.
