A well-cared-for garden can add thousands of dollars to the value of your home. However, caring for your garden is so much more than simply mowing the lawns once a week and putting on a sprinkler when in a dry spell. Using quality materials when establishing your gardens will set you in good stead moving forward but it is also important to perform regular maintenance in and around your gardens to ensure continued healthy growth.
Tasks such as top dressing your lawn, topping up garden bed soil, re-mulching, working in composted material, fertilising, pruning and cutting back plants should all be on your seasonal and yearly gardening chores list.
