Tips and tricks for low-maintenance borders, lawns and vegetable patches.



We all want a beautiful garden but many of us find it hard to spare the time needed to keep our garden in top condition. There are endless jobs that need doing, from weeding and pruning to pest control and dead heading.

But there are things you can do to reduce the workload. In our guide to easy gardening we share expert tips for a low-maintenance garden – and we certainly don't mean paving over it!

Find out about some of the easiest flowers, shrubs and grasses to grow for a stunning garden year-round, read our tips and tricks for an easy kitchen garden and learn how to turn an established border into a low-maintenance border.

All gardens are going to require some work (even a bare square of patio will require an annual clean!) but there are things you can do to make it easier so you have the benefit of a beautiful garden and, even better, the time to sit back and enjoy it.
