After finding the perfect home in Singapore property market, the next thing you will do is to take a look at the garden of your new property. Is it according to your liking? Is it beautiful just like the house? Does it compliment with the whole image of the property or does it need a little transformation to enhance the appeal of your newly acquired Singapore property.
Well, the following are six major steps you should follow to transform your garden into something you really like. All these steps should be followed before selecting or buying plants.
1 Clear up the garden. Remove all unwanted plants, rotting fences and unwanted debris; if it is new, clear away any rubble that may have been left behind by the builder. Find a place where you can put bricks, lumps of concrete and old stones to be used later as paths, edging or foundations to any walls and patios.
2 Dig under the ground,and if necessary remove pieces of brick, weeds, old timber and rotting tree roots. Install or renovate boundary walls, fences and hedges.
3 Make or repair permanent fixtures that was added to the building like internal walls, pools, paths, steps, seating areas, garden buildings and the play areas. Install if necessary outside plumbing and electrical fittings, or make future provision for them by laying conduits before constructing paths and paved areas.
4 Mark out and do the digging in the planting areas, removing all weeds and incorporating organic material such as garden compost or well-rotted manure. Allow time for any soil you have dug or moved to settle naturally before planting hedges, trees, large shrubs and key plants (using tree stakes and ties where necessary).
5 The best time to plant is in spring or autumn. Mark out the lawn areas, dig over, remove weeds and stones . Make it as compact as possible, then rake again and apply fertilizer before seeding or turfing. Avoid stepping on it or use boards if you have to walk on it.
6 Add the finishing touches. Position any statues and wall ornaments, wall fountains, containers and garden furniture. At the appropriate time of the year, plant the smaller shrubs, herbaceous perennials, annuals and bulbs. Clean and fill the garden pool, add plants after one week and fish two weeks after.
