Lots of people enjoy having a nice outdoor space to enjoy, especially as the weather starts to get warmer. However, with most people working many hours throughout the day it can be hard to find the time to put into maintaining your garden.

So, how can you make the most of limited time and make your garden as low maintenance as possible? Large flower beds can take quite a lot of upkeep as you’ll get weeds growing in between your flowers and the soil needs to be regularly turned over and aerated to keep your plants growing well. An easier alternative would be plants in pots instead. These can be easily maintained and moved around to suit your outdoor space.

Area’s of grass can be easily tidied up if you are able to mow it fairly regularly and can really soften an outdoor space making it more usable for all the family.

For patio areas a super-low maintenance option would be poured resin either over your existing slabs or over concrete as this gives an attractive wet-look to the area and ensures that weeds cannot grow up between your slabs.  This option is very low maintenance but can be quite costly so you may want to shop around to ensure you get the best price.
