The home’s garden is meant to be a sanctuary. It’s a place where we can rest, relax and forget about the stresses and strains outside of the home. It should have a place to entertain and some lush greenery to go with it. But with the hassles of everyday life we often find ourselves overlooking this most vital natural vista.
So, this begs the question: have you noticed your garden going gungy? Does it look more like someone vacated the home 10 years ago, as opposed to an entertainer’s paradise? If you love your backyard but have let it go belly up, don’t stress, as first class landscaping services can bring your garden back to glory!
Here are some serious signs that it’s time to do it exactly that:
It is overgrown
The best Northern Beaches landscaping will tell you one thing: the greenery shouldn’t take over the home. Not only does it look unsightly, but it also makes your home a breeding ground for all kinds of gnarly pests. If your space is starting to look like the setting of a natural horror film - the one where the greenery envelops the home and all its occupants - then you’re probably thinking it’s time to defeat the monster before it’s too late!
Seriously though, if you find that your garden is gungy, your hedges too high and your trees toppling like the Leaning Tower, then we’re afraid you’ve let it get out of control. But it’s never too late to reverse the pattern, and you can call in the experts to design a lush new space that is beautiful, clean and clear from the nasties that would otherwise inhabit your home.
There is something you’ve always wanted
What feature have you always envisioned in your backyard? Is it the overly-luxurious central fountain? Or, is it a gorgeously refreshing pool that will make your home a Sydney summer entertainer’s paradise? If there is something you’ve always had your mind but never got around to - get onto it! It’s never too late to invigorate your backyard with something spectacular, especially as it will beautify the space whilst increasing your home’s resale value.
Professional landscape designers can pretty much bring any vision to life these days (within reality’s reasoning), and so you are never short of options when it comes to installing that peaceful stream cutting through the flower beds.
It isn’t functional
Many homeowners see their gardens as a place to suit their lifestyle. Do the kids want to play backyard cricket but there is simply no lawn? Do you want to have friends and family over for summer Sunday barbies but don’t have the patio? Or, do you want to turn your home into a micro-farm, and just need a little assistance planting all those delightful apple and orange trees?
If you feel that your backyard doesn’t fulfil your lifestyle requirements, then perhaps it’s time to remake the space. After all, being in the backyard is very good for your health, and why would you want to be cooped up inside all day when our city is blessed with such stunning weather (most of the time).
Your backyard should be yours to do what you want with. After all, it’s your home, and this is a space that you should be able to enjoy to the absolute pinnacle!
