Garden Design Gold Coast
Of late, hedges have become extremely trendy and more and more homeowners are eager to have a beautiful, green border around their property. Hedges not only provide a viable boundary, they also shield you from nosy neighbours, divide the outdoors, provide wind protection, create cosy corners and can even be used as wonderful sculptures. Garden design in Gold Coast is incomplete without a hedge and you should definitely know how to grow one.
Selecting the Plants
There are plenty of options to choose from when it comes to garden design in Gold Coast. Many of these are native to Australia and are perfectly suitable for growing a sustainable hedge.
Some options for larger plants include the Lemon Myrtle, Lilly Pilly, or Great Balls of Fire. Smaller native plants that are perfect for garden design in Gold Coast include the Little John, Allyn Magic, Compacta or Coastal Rosemary.
Calculating the number of Saplings
The number of plants you need will depend on how much space you have and whether you are choosing larger plants or smaller ones. Find out the width of the plant (once it matures) to understand how much space to leave in-between for healthy growth. For a really dense hedge, plant saplings alternatively in double rows.
Growing a Healthy Hedge
It requires time, patience and gentle care to grow a thick, healthy hedge that will last for years. If you want an instant hedge, the only option is to buy mature plants which can be an expensive proposition.
The best way is to care for your hedge regularly by maintaining good soil quality, watering your hedge and adding sufficient manure. If you have never grown a hedge before, it’s best to consult an expert. He can provide you with necessary guidance on preparing the soil, selecting the right plants and how to maintain a healthy hedge for years.
