As a horticulturist, it’s only natural to form attachments with some plant species over others. You get to develop a deep understanding for which plants and flowers work well in specific applications and in combination with other varieties to achieve striking affects.
When it comes to garden maintenance, irrigation is number one. Managing the water requirements for a garden can be a delicate job. It’s about balancing the water demands for each plant with unpredictable weather patterns and sustainable water usage.
The first thing Botanic Horticulture look for during an initial garden maintenance consultation is appropriate irrigation. The secret is having the right systems for the right applications and maintaining them regularly.
