Life is a Garden is always working on modern garden ideas and top trends to help us keep our outdoor and indoor garden spaces up to date.

Take a look at 3 of their sustainable gardening tips to try out this season.

Keep it simple

Mess leads to stress! Simplifying your garden can simplify your life. A good idea is to plant mostly perennial plants that will come back each year. Group them together based on their watering needs. Fill in any left-over spaces with bedding plants. Reposition messy trees or shrubs to avoid daily clear-up duties.

Outside in

Don’t limit your plants to your garden. Find creative ways to bring green indoors, especially in the midst of winter. With proper plant choices and some grow lights, even the darkest corner of your home can support plant life.

Plants with exotic textured foliage like Staghorn ferns and variegated or multi- colours are great choices. Another reason to try this ever-popular trend is that houseplants are excellent air purifiers.

Pay it forward

Gardening isn‘t just about making a piece of land look pretty. Gardens can also be used to give back to the environment and community.

Using natural ways to get rid of weeds and control garden pests like grubs and beetles and including plants that attract pollinators such as bees, birds and butterflies is a great way to give back to the environment.

Donate your overabundance of fresh produce to your local charity or share with your neighbours to foster a sense of community.
