First thing most people do when a new house is built, is planning a garden. Sometimes when you buy a house, there is one there already and the new owners can install some additions such as bird baths and summer houses. However change of personnel can mean that the person who tends to the garden is no more and that garden is now overgrown with weeds, bushes and trees.

Going wild

Unfortunately it doesn’t take a long time for a cleared space to go wild. Even a properly manicured garden, if not attended to, will definitely fall to this fate. If you already had bushes and somewhat bigger trees in your garden there is nothing you can do to prevent them invading other parts of the garden as well as shading the flower beds and potted plants so that those have the tendency of drying off. Therefore if you are designing a garden with the house or if you have bought a house where there is space for a garden, consider good tree removal if there are bigger trees. Sometimes it could be giving shade; but it could be dangerous due to small animals that could creep in to the house, roots going all over and hindering other plants’ growth, danger of having leaves and branches falling and so on. 

Using chemicals

It is well known that chemicals are used to get rid of weeds. However do not be deceived in to thinking that they can control an overgrown garden. They are nothing compared to the bigger trees and bushes that could invade a garden; if you are trying to use chemicals or herbicides et cetera to get rid of bigger plants it will take more than a year to clear a neglected patch of land. Woody plants are impossible to get rid of by using chemicals. After the unwanted plants are removed soil has to be brought back to the situation prior to the encroachment by weeds and plants. Hence using herbicides is not going to get you anywhere anytime soon.

Clearing a neglected land

You can use machinery to clear a land or you can do it by hand. If you are trying to do it by hand first things must be removed are the woody trees and shrubs. They must be dug or pulled out if they are thinner in girth. If the required trees and bushes have overgrown you must do tree pruning Wahroonga to bring them back to shape. Whatever you do, cutting the trees a few centimeters above the land level is not prudent. That can be a danger to humans who can trip and fall and also to blades of lawn mowers. If the trees are too big for you to dig them out cut them as much closer as you can to the ground and dig some holes around that, which you then must fill with salt. That will automatically work on the roots and they will die off.Maintaining a garden is not easy. Even though you don’t require a specialized knowledge for that you definitely need time and space to tend to make it a better one.
