There are few people who have the luxury of sitting at home enjoying their lawn and garden. Most people, even retirees in today’s world, work and have a busy schedule. Even though you like to step out and smell the roses, figuratively if not literally, your garden becomes such a tangle of weeds that it’s hard to enjoy anything, thinking of all the work that will go into it before you can actually see your lovely blooms. If you are like millions of other busy people, here are some tips on how to maintain your lawn and garden so that you actually can enjoy it!
Get the Help of a Gardening Service
While you may want to dabble a bit yourself, you will almost certainly need help getting control of your garden that’s now overgrown. Those who live and work in the Greater Brisbane area are happy that the weather has turned cooler which makes it nice to get out in the garden, but time is still an issue. You can call on the services of professional lawn and garden maintenance people who will happily get it sorted out. This is a must in the beginning, but also recommended for ongoing care such as mowing, weeding and even planting.

One of the handiest ‘tools’ many of today’s busy gardeners use is an auto-drip watering and feeding system. These can be laid with a series of hoses and set on a timer so that they automatically water your garden at pre-specified hours of the day. Your gardening service will know which time of day is best. They obviously won’t be coming out daily to water your prized plants, so this drip system will keep your garden healthy while you are busy doing other things. Some plants like water in the morning and others in the evening hours after a long day in the sun. Let your gardening service help you set that up and you will have a minimal amount of concern when it comes to feeding those plants.
Set Aside an Area of Hardscaping
Finally, remember that not all of your garden needs to be landscaped with vegetation. If you like to spend time out in the garden enjoying the cool winter days, why not set aside a small area that is hardscaped? Use garden stones or gravel and set a fountain in the centre with solar LED ambient lighting. You will be surrounded by the beauty of nature with the gentle sounds of water trickling in the background, and this makes for much less garden space to contend with. Even so, your gardening service would probably need to care for any potted plants you have in this area. It’s just an oasis in a sea of vegetation.
So, there you have a few tips on how to maintain a lovely lawn and garden on a busy schedule in Brisbane. Now it’s time to get out there and enjoy. What are you waiting for?
