Grow your own and forget flat; let’s go vertical! –
Never before have customers been more conscious of the eco-footprint and impact their choices have on our planet.
One simple choice you can make for the good of all, including your own mental health and wellbeing, is by growing your own veg in a garden allotment.
From carrots to potatoes, to herbs and spices such as coriander and chilli’s, nothing will beat the taste of veg that you’ve lovingly grown. It’s cost-effective too, with many garden centres and supermarkets selling seeds at a more than reasonable price!
A trend that’s only getting more popular as the summer and year goes on is vertical gardens.
For space-saving and those customers with little outdoor space or in a flat with balcony space, there’s no better option than a vertical garden.
You can still have all the greenery and foliage that you’d expect from a traditional garden. If you were to pair this landscaping in Warrington with block paving, no grass to mow – what a result!
Raised Flower Beds to protect your prize plants! –
As a business, we’ve seen an increase in requests for raised flower beds using a variety of materials such as wooden planters.
Raising your prized plants from the floor is an excellent alternative for older gardeners in particular, as the need for bending down/over is lessened.
Raised planters are also a great tool to utilise if you have pesky pets who are a bit too fond of your foliage!
Up away from ground-level not only protects your plants but also helps maintain optimum soil temperature and drainage to encourage plant and vegetable growth.
Embrace nature –
A fantastic way to help our planet and get your children learning about animals and plants is by embracing nature!
Planting pollen-rich plants, plants with medicinal properties and other foliage will encourage animals such as bees, snails and butterflies back into your garden.
You might even encourage everyone’s favourite little critter, the hedgehog, back by building a hedgehog hotel!
