Once you have your low maintenance garden

Phew! It’s all done and you might actually find you have time to sit back and enjoy it!

Remember, the garden you have created is low maintenance, not NO maintenance, so it’s a good idea to get organised for the jobs you will need to do. Make a list by week or month of everything that needs doing, including the regular jobs of watering and weeding. If you have a partner and/or children, you can share the jobs out so that everyone takes a bit of the effort in maintaining the garden. Jobs like weeding are great for kids – they can get their hands muddy while learning about plants and you get one job ticked off your list.
