How To Create a Low-maintenance Garden

November 8th, 2012 · No Comments · Gardening News

This blog has been neglected for far too long while I have been preoccupied with other distractions. In particular my wife and I have decided to move to London to be nearer to our daughter who lives in Belsize Park. What has prompted this post is an article I saw in the London Daily Telegraph by the Garden Inspector. She is advising a young couple on how to create a low-maintenance garden. They have moved out of London to a house with a good sized plot measuring some 82ft wide by 92ft long. They have employed a builder to carry out some landscaping of which the Garden Inspector clearly does not approve, but the article is well worth a read for the suggestions she makes.

My situation is exactly the opposite in that I will be leaving a substantial garden and moving to a flat with a small patio. As you see from the picture it consists of a small paved area on one side with a gravel section on the other. The grass beyond is a communal area so I will be able to enjoy the green without having to mow it. We are hoping to move early in the new year and I will post further pictures once we have carried out some improvements.
