It’s amazing how much paint can transform an old fence into a stunning backdrop for greenery or jewel-colored plants. What color should you choose? Black is the best choice for a striking look.
This colour can give garden designers a magical effect. If you paint a fence black, it will disappear. A shed becomes less distracting, and a bench becomes a stylish focal point.
Start from seeds
Sow seeds are the best way to grow a healthy garden. You should always check the size of the packets, whether you are buying vegetable or flower seeds. Some contain more seeds than you can sow in one year.
Divide and plant
A cost-effective way to fill flowerbeds with great-looking plants is to buy perennials that you can divide. This may sound like advanced-level gardening, but it isn’t. It will work with clump-forming perennials such as gums, astrantia and hardy geraniums.
Take the plant out of the pot and cut it into pieces. Each piece will have a stalk and root. Each part should be placed in a separate hole. You can then dig them up again next year to get more plants.
For very little money, you can have a beautiful display for a few years. In a typical garden, six geranium plants will be enough to get you started.
Start a lawn with seeds
‘The cheapest way to get a thriving garden is by growing a lawn by seed, as turf isn’t cheap and can be difficult to lay. With seeding, you’ve got much greater control over which species of seed are going into your new lawn,’ advises Carlos Real, Lawn Care Expert and Managing Director of TotalLawn . ‘For example, if you want an aesthetically pleasing lawn, you should be looking for slender fescues – this forms a close turf with bristle like, dark green, glossy leaves.
Get in shape
Cut the grass into a defined shape. This is a cost-effective and simple way to transform your garden. To remove excess grass, mark it with string. This is a simple job that takes only an hour.
