Gardeners are increasingly becoming aware of the importance of our honey bee population. Bees have been under attack for several years from a variety of sources and anything we can do to help them is worth doing. Since bees are attracted to some plants more than others it makes perfect sense and is easy to incorporate more of their favourites into our garden planning.
A green lush front and backyard is a desire every Australian homeowner has. But the cost and maintenance of, let’s say Kikuyu grass isn’t on the budget side of things. Instead, installing an artificial turf may be the better choice for you.
As a homeowner, you’d want to keep your backyard in perfect condition. After all, a lush green turf can increase the value of your property. And to battle water-logging problems, many backyards in Australia have backyard drains.
So, what purpose does that drain serve and how should you maintain yours, in order to avoid waterlogging or even flooding your backyard? Let’s take a more in-depth look!
Discoloured patches of turf, dying produce and easy to pull out grass isn’t something you’d want to see in your front lawn or garden beds. All three are signs of a white curl grub infestation, which can destroy the veggie garden you’ve worked so hard for or the lush looks of your front and back yard.
Every self-respecting gardener understands the importance of soil quality. Many Australians face the challenge of waterlogged earth, especially in the autumn months. You see, some plants don’t have a problem with a bit more water around their roots, while others… let’s just say that they have a far shorter life-span.
