How To Create A Low Maintenance Garden

low maintenance garden

I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t want a beautiful garden. However, the large amount of maintenance required to keep a garden looking pristine is often a deterrent for many homeowners. Inevitably, owning a well maintained garden means dealing with ongoing garden maintenance and multiple trips to the tip to dispose garden rubbish.

So, how can you have the best of both worlds? How can you have a beautiful garden that is low maintenance? It’s actually quite easy. Today, I’ll offer some handy tips that’ll help you create your very own low maintenance garden. You can thank me by using our services at 4 Waste Removals to dispose your garden waste with ease. Now, listen up!

1. Grow your plants together

If there’s one thing common with most low maintenance gardens, it’s that the plants are always grown together. Growing plants in a dense area allows you to maximise your garden space. Also, when plants grow together, less soil is exposed to the sun. This locks more moisture into the soil and inhibits weed growth.

2. Let go of your lawn

Sure, a lush lawn can make any garden look visually appealing and brimming with life. However, every lawn requires heavy maintenance. Lawns must be watered and clipped regularly to keep them in top shape.

Instead of going with a lawn, consider an alternate ground cover. This will dramatically reduce your maintenance requirements. Deep gravel paths are an excellent alternative to grassy walkways as they allow water to drain freely. Also, small shrubs and plants can work wonders in replacing certain areas of a lawn.

3. Feed the soil and not the plants

It’s only natural that people feed their plants and not the soil. However, this is a mistake – it is the soil that should be fed. Plants receive most of their nutrition from the roots which are lodged deep in the ground. By feeding the soil and not your plants, you’ll actually be giving them a chance to grow better and healthier.

4. Get rid of your garden rubbish periodically

After your efforts, you’ll probably find lots of garden rubbish to get rid of. While some people choose to compost waste in their gardens, this is a messy and lengthy process. Most people simply drive to the tip to dispose their garden rubbish.

However, for an even more efficient solution, you can hire one of our garden skip bins or garden bags to manage your garden waste.

Our garden bags allow you to get rid of your garden waste on a periodic basis. Our garden bags are much larger than those offered by the council and we’re more flexible with collections as well.

Alternatively, if you have a lot of garden rubbish to dispose, you can hire our garden skip bins. We’ll deliver a skip to your location and you’ll need to fill it with your waste. When you’re done, our waste removal experts will collect and dispose your waste for you.


There are many ways to create a low maintenance garden. Start by growing your plants close together to maximise space and let go of your lawn. Also, always feed the soil and not your plants.

You’ll also need to dispose your garden rubbish time and again. For this, look no further than us at 4 Waste Removals. We make garden rubbish disposal easy, efficient and affordable.
