We can all breath a collective sigh of relief as the first signs of spring arrive. It's a shade lighter in the mornings, a degree warmer, and the first little delicate green leaves are making their shy appearance. What better reason could you need to get outside with your gardening gloves and start getting your outdoor space Spring-ready, whether it's a small balcony or sprawling acres. Now's the time to start weeding, cleaning, fertilising, pruning and planting.
Do you have a plan for your outdoor space? It's important to have an idea of what you'd like to achieve in your outdoor space and kick into action as Spring arrives. You may be happy with your existing layout, or perhaps you'd like to make some changes... whether it's structural changes (like putting in a braai area or a water-feature) or simply introducing new plants to your space, it's important to plan ahead to avoid making costly mistakes. Grab some paper and a pen and sketch up a rough layout of your space... it's always useful to see things from a bird's eye view.
Depending on where you live in our beautiful country, there is varying advice on what to plant and where to plant it. When it comes to making these choices, it's important to consult with the experts at your local nursery. We love Stodels comprehensive online gardening guides which tell you everything you need to know about what to plant, how much to water, when to plant, how to prune and more. After all, we can't all have green fingers, so it makes sense to consult with the experts.
The same principle applies to taking care of your lawn. After the ravages of winter, it's likely that your previously green lawn is now a muddy swamp, or brown and dry with tons of bare patches. You could try to revive it, or you could opt for artificial lawn that looks even better than the real thing. What's more, your lawn will be hassle-free and 100% immaculate all year round. This family home in Moreleta Park in Pretoria made the decision to go with Belgotex's artificial lawn and it has revolutionised their outdoor living space.
With a fairly limited outdoor area, they have created a wonderful green space that has a formal structure to it. They have added interest to the garden's layout by creating different 'rooms' within the garden. This is done cleverly through the use of hedges, lines of trees, edging and paving so that one's attention is drawn to different areas within the space. The result is a work of art, beautifully framed by Belgotex's Leisure 30mm.
If you're green with garden envy, now's the time to kick into action. While it's the perfect time of year for weeding, cleaning, fertilising, pruning and planting, it's also the perfect time to consider ditching your problematic lawn and choosing a care-free all year round artificial grass.

So that this time next year, your lawn will be one less thing you'll need to worry about.
