Top tips for Maintaining Your Garden

In this post, Bevan Pulley of The Professional Landscapers and Belinda discuss the top tips for maintaining your garden.

Know what to do at what time of year for grass and plant health

Because of climate and weather changes, it’s hard for gardens to thrive unless they have lots of nutrients. You also have to check pests and diseases regularly. You need pesticides and fertilising to keep the health of the plant because if they are in poor health, they’re more susceptible to diseases and pest attacks.

Have a plan for each season
  • Spring – cutting back, mulching, fertilising, getting ready for the growing season
  • Summer – is all about maintenance, keeping growth under control
  • Autumn – is putting back nutrients into the garden with mulching and fertilising
  • Winter – is to cut back
Pathways in front of the property for presentation

  • Clear gutters

  • Leave enough height of grass on them!
  • Fortnightly mow and edge during the growing seasons, then minimum monthly
