It has long been a stereotype that those who garden tend to be retired adults, and you wouldn’t be wrong in that assumption. The fact is that managing and creating a beautiful garden requires time and effort, and those who work between 30-50 hours per week can find it difficult to find the time to dedicate the 10-15 hours a week to manage a large garden and keep it looking fabulous.

One of the ways that people can create a great garden without dedicating all of their spare time to it is to hire a garden maintenance company. They can help with some of the work like weeding, hedge maintenance and lawn maintenance, which can take care of a significant amount of your responsibilities.

You could also choose a relatively low maintenance garden which focusses on other areas of your garden, such as making a garden which attracts more wildlife. In gardens like this you don’t have to obsess so much over the odd weed, as animals appreciate diversity.
