A garden is the welcoming place in your home where many a beautiful evenings and sunny days are spent. A garden is also often the prime location for celebrating birthdays, entertaining friends or just enjoying some family time. All of this, however, is possible only if you have a garden to be proud of and where you can spend quality time alone or in the company of friends and family. Most gardens start off with the best of intentions, but often are found to be barren or weed infested after a few years owing to lack of attention and time to maintain it. A garden, apart from the initial landscaping and designing requires regular maintenance in terms of watering the plants, regularly trimming and pruning them, mowing the lawns and planting seasonal flowers, providing optimum fertilizers for growth.
You need not fret if all of the above is not possible for you. Instead, you can always opt for artificial grass installation Melbourne and faux silk flowers and fake plants to have an evergreen garden, that is on bloom all through the year without needing much attention or maintenance and which is versatile too.
You can also mix it up with a clever combination of real plants along with artificial ones. With the high quality of artificial plants available currently at The Garden Of Paradise, no one will even be able to distinguish between the two.
Set-up a garden using artificial plants
- Install the grass
For soil that is either uneven, or has too many rocks and gravel, it can quite difficult to have grass growing on it and to maintain it. Instead, opt for fake grass which can be installed easily and looks as good as the real deal.
Also, those who live in apartments and have terraces or those who have small patios can also install artificial grass for a green patch.
The advantages to installing fake grass are that
- It will remain evergreen irrespective of the season.
- It does not require mowing or regular tending to.
- It’s environmentally friendly since gallons of water is saved and also saves on the gas required for gas-powered mowers.
- You do not have to deal with weeds infecting the grass and the subsequent getting rid of it.
- You do not have to worry about using the right fertilizers to make the grass grow and look healthy.
You can even choose the right colour and blade types for the grass.
- Choose appropriate planters and shrubs
Flowering plants usually have a specific season during which they bloom and rest of the year they do not. By choosing silk and faux flowers you can enjoy a vibrant sight in your garden all year round.
You can even mix and match with real perennial plants and artificial flowering plants for a garden that is always in bloom and looking inviting.
Faux potted trees and plants are a much sought after garden decor option.
- Decorate with furniture and artifacts
Once the basic setup of the garden is done, you can add character to it by incorporating suitable furniture such as a small dining area with chairs and a table. Alternatively, you can have a few two-seater sofas to make a cozy sit out area where pleasant evenings can be spent.
Use of wheelbarrows as plant holders is a popular decor trend which looks aesthetically pleasing too.
So, go ahead and setup your own evergreen garden.
