If you’re a pet owner, you’ll know just how much damage an energetic dog can do to a garden. One of the main complaints we hear involves dogs digging up the lawn, getting muddy and then bringing the mud into the house. Bad news for your garden and not great for your freshly cleaned floor; this is a real problem for dog lovers across the country, especially those who want to let their pets have fun in the garden but who don’t want the hassle of having to wash muddy paws throughout the day.
Like many families in the UK life can become busy with work, school runs, family activities and hobbies. When the weekend comes around we want to enjoy our free time rather than be maintaining our gardens. Whether you like to just relax, run about or play with your pets in your garden an even lawn is an important feature. If you’re a parent or pet owner, you’ll know that children and animals don’t mix well with pristine lawns. The wear and tear that they cause can easily make your grass yellow and patchy and unusable. Trampolines and play equipment can leave areas shadowed eventually killing off the grass in large patches.
Moving into a new property or renovating your existing home can throw up many challenges. Financial reasons can often result in the garden being the last area to get a makeover.
As we enter retirement age we often find that jobs around the garden that were once pleasurable become difficult to manage. Without regular maintenance lawns, patios and decking can become patchy, slippery or uneven.
Modern living means making the most of our outdoor space. Space is at a premium in cities and new build properties have notoriously small gardens. With garages nowadays being utilised as extra storage for bicycles and outdoor pursuits many homes don’t have room for the equipment needed to maintain a garden. With apartment living rising in popularity rooftop gardens are an ideal way for an urban gardener to expand their space.
