Garden maintenance for urban gardens

Urban gardens can be all shapes and sizes. You can have an outdoor space on a roof, balcony or outside a basement flat. It’s all about maximising your space and using the right equipment. Even if you are super-busy, you can still have a space to enjoy when you use our garden maintenance for your low maintenance urban garden.

We can help you with the set-up of your space, as well as garden maintenance, even if you are starting with a patch of scrub or an area with no soil or plants at all. We have lots of tips and tricks to get you started.

Top tips for a low maintenance urban garden

These are just a few of the things we recommend in order to make your urban garden easy and delightful for you:

  • Make it easy on yourself – remember that you need to maintain your space in between our visits so bear this in mind when you are thinking about what you want. Plants that you want to use, such as herbs, for example, should be close to the kitchen. If you have to go hunting for them, it is less likely you will use them;
  • Remember you have height to work with as well as floor dimensions – if you have a particularly small footprint for your garden, Town and Country Gardens can help you build up as well as out. This might mean hanging baskets or tiered plant pots;
  • Watering shortcuts – perhaps one of the most consistent tasks is that of watering the plants. Some people enjoy wandering around with a watering can or hose. If you are not one of those people, you simply don’t have the time or you are away a lot, some sort of watering system might be the solution. We can set you up with a solution that is on a timer or we can give you tips on innovations like crystals that time-release water into the soil;
  • Create more light for you and your garden – some small gardens can be shady. We can help you maximise the light you have with white surfaces and/or mirrors. Not only does this create a lovely space for you, it can help you grow a wider variety of plants.
