Do Brits actually like gardening? Hard question to answer – while there may be those out there with a good old green thumb ready to dig in, there are those who would rather ignore the garden altogether. Either way, most of us are going to end up in charge of an outdoor space, so it pays to at least take some sort of passing interest in keeping a garden clean and tidy – not just so that it looks decent, but so it is a space that you can actually get a little bit of use out of. A garden goes to waste, otherwise. If you’re paying off a hefty mortgage, do you want to think about wasting your money and space? Of course not.
To put it bluntly, not everyone has the time to care for a garden. That’s a shame, but it is the truth. We all deserve a great garden, so how can we take the bother out of garden care? Well if you’re willing to put the time in to clear your garden just the once, there are plenty of ways you can save yourself the bother in the future.
Have you considered faking it? Artificial grass is a real possibility and can save you a lot of time and hassle. A lot of pride and care goes into a good lawn, but it still has to obey the laws of mother nature, even in great health it can still look yellow – and dead. True lawn care comes from the soil, and if you can’t look after the soil beneath the lawn, the lawn will suffer. A product like Evergreens Artificial Grass can be a lifesaver here – and looks great all year round so you won’t need to waste any cash on lawn health products. What’s more, it doesn’t grow, so you won’t put your back out by mowing it – because you will not have to mow it at all.
Robotics are coming into play in the industrial world and you can harness the power of automation for your garden as well. Automatic pond filters, robotic lawn mowers, sprinkler systems – there is a lot to choose from when it comes to automating your gardening work and even adding one of these robotics can help save you a bunch of time. It is something worth considering, truly. It might sound far-fetched, but robotics can take a lot of the hassle out of gardening so that you can use your time for more beneficial pursuits.
While not truly automatic, you might consider the old-fashioned technique of simply hiring someone to do your gardening work for you. Gardeners are still around, and some might not be as costly as you think – especially for monthly work. It is something that is worth considering, as paying someone to do this work for you can take a huge burden from you. Worth it!
These are some ways you can take the hassle out of gardening, but remember – gardening, like other things – is pretty rewarding, even if it is hard work.
