Updating Your Garden: Where People Go Wrong


It’s common to want to enhance your garden at this time of the year. After all, summer is almost here, so it’s the perfect time to give it a boost. At the end of the day, you are going to spend a lot of time outside in the sunshine in the months to come! However, you might be surprised how many people make mistakes when it comes to sorting out their garden. And then they have to live with this regret over the coming months. Therefore, here is where people go wrong when updating their garden so you can avoid these mistakes at all costs.

Not researching about different plants first

It’s easy to go a bit plant crazy when you head to the nursery. After all, you might spot beautiful plants you think would look great in your garden. But while spontaneity is good, you do need to do some research before investing in any old plant for your garden. After all, you don’t want to end up with something which requires a ton of maintenance over the following months. Or something which could be harmful to kids or pets! After all, you don’t want to feel guilty if they get sick. Therefore, you need to ask for more information about the specific plant before you go to the till. And you should be able to find some more information online to ensure you make the right decision on plants for your yard. That way, you won’t be left living with regret.


Not hiring a professional landscaper

When you want to update your garden, it’s easy to go down the route of doing it yourself. After all, you might not want to splash out the cash on a professional. But if you are doing big updates, it can sometimes be worth it. After all, if you lay the paving down yourself, it might end up going wrong. And you could end up with an uneven patio. Also, you might end up making the garden look overcrowded. After all, you might not have the best skills to landscape it properly. Therefore, you should hire a professional landscaper who can ensure the garden looks fantastic. And before signing on the dotted line, make sure you read online about the top 10 qualities to seek in a landscaping company. That way, you know you are picking the right one for the job.


Not making it family friendly

It’s also important to make sure the garden is perfect for your family. After all, a lot of people make the mistake of thinking more about how it looks rather than the safety aspect. But then if something happens to their kid, they are left living with regret. Therefore, you need to make sure that the features in the garden are family friendly. For example, if you put a pond in the yard, ensure there is a fence around it to keep your little ones safe. And you need to ensure there is a good fence in the garden to ensure privacy for the sake of your family.


And remember to think about features which will be good for winter too. After all, you want a garden which you can use all year round.

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
