Creating borders within your garden makes space to grow plants, flowers or even vegetables and they are certainly the areas that the keen gardener pays attention to. A professional landscaper can help you to decide where borders should go as well as how they should look. The typical garden is simply a lawn with borders either side, but a landscape gardener will assist you in thinking about original and creative ways to lay out your garden, cut into your lawn and change the way the garden looks, front or back.
A professional landscape gardener will create neat edges around the borders, as well as considering factors like sun and shade along with the kind of plants that you wish to put in. They will also deal with any weed problems in the borders before they take hold, using weedkillers in the soil or advising on organic alternatives before planting with bulbs or shrubs.
The soil in your borders is obviously important. A good gardener or landscaper will add compost or manure to the borders as they create them, as well as deciding whether to double-dig them or apply any other treatments. This work should be done in autumn or winter, when the ground is wet but not frozen. Before this, a landscape gardener can come round and discuss ideas of what your borders should look like, which may include them measuring the garden or sketching out ideas of how the borders would look, as well as if they will be banked or flat.
