Low maintenance garden

If you’re looking to let a property with a garden then you’ll probably be looking to create a low maintenance area that your tenants can enjoy, with the minimum amount of fuss.

If you are lucky enough to find your tenants are keen gardeners, they can always enhance and add to the garden.

Shrubs with brightly coloured leaves and flowers create colour and variation in a border.  There are many with variegated leaves which do not require a large amount of pruning or attention and will provide a garden with interest.

If your garden is partly paved or gravelled then you can add height and colour with a few well-chosen shrubs or plants like grasses or conifers.

Plant bulbs which will produce flowers year after year like daffodils or snowdrops to bring a bright splash of colour during later winter and early spring before the days get longer.

For more advice, why not pop along to your local garden centre where staff are available to talk to and help with any specific questions you might have.
