Aftercare is critical to a successful outcome of a project. Consideration should be given to who is going to provide the aftercare, plants will need watering and weeding, grass will need to be watered and cut, hard surfaces will need to be swept, ponds will need to be topped up with water,with any fish being feed, lighting will need to be adjusted, the list can be long and time consumming.
Finally a budget of either regular time or money needs to be allocated.
Clean & tidy sites always feel welcoming.
Freshly cut grass has a certain allure, these days with water shortages it is often necessary, to seriously consider an alternative design.
Here a very low aftercare mediterranean style garden, reduces both watering and the time to keep attractive.
