It’s still a bit bizarre for the Restumping Melbourne team to include “2021” in titles for reports, articles and more, but it’s right around the corner whether we like it or not. In our minds, and probably one of the reasons that we’re the best in the business at restumping, reblocking and underpinning services in the area, you have to be prepared for what’s ahead. It means that you’ll be ahead of the game for sure, but it also means that you’ll be less stressed with a clearer head and plan, making whatever you’re working on much more pleasant.
When we work on your properties, we spend the vast majority of our time outside in one capacity or another. So, as we’ve mentioned a time or two on the Restumping Melbourne blog, landscaping and gardening have become a piece of our business whether we planned for it or not. We’ve seen what works and we’ve definitely seen what could use a tweak in the future. So, as we’re looking toward the future and the season ahead, we thought we’d share our recommendations for fall 2021 landscaping. Read on for more information:
One way that homeowners and renters will get creative this fall and throughout the year will be looking at unique footage in your real estate to set up a garden. There’s a misconception that gardens need to of a certain size, located in a certain space or even shaped a certain way, but where’s the fun in that? We’ve noticed more and more articles about balcony gardens, which are a great opportunity for several types of properties – especially apartments or condominiums. As long as your plants are receiving the water and the sunlight that they need, you’re in good shape.
This next trend may be a bit controversial but hear us out… “wild gardens”. They’re pretty much exactly what they sound like, leaning into large swaths of colour, not pruning trees and shrubs as often and just generally appreciating your great outdoors for what it is. Just be careful that you’re not planting things so close that their roots encroach on each other’s spaces.
Permaculture gardens will continue to gain popularity, especially with the increased interest in ensuring our homes are sustainable, as well as durable and beautiful. Permaculture gardens depend on the natural elements – sun, water, and wind. That’s all you get for these. The thought is that the natural elements will provide everything your garden could possibly need, including food, water and shelter. If you’re looking for bonus points on the sustainability scale, you can use these gardens to focus on fruits and vegetables that you and your loved ones can enjoy all year round.
This is by no means an all-encompassing list, but if anything, it can and should serve as a springboard for conversation about the trends that you’re excited about. Let us know. The Restumping Melbourne team would love to hear from you.
