There are so many different reasons as to why a garden can fall into somewhat disrepair, many of which reasons are more than suitably justified, of course. You could have had a very hectic couple of days, week, couple of weeks or perhaps even a full month, the smallest period of which can set a spanner in the works and result in a knock-on effect which makes it harder and harder to get back into the rhythm of periodically doing garden maintenance.
Teak patio furniture can stick out in an un-kept garden
After all, even the simplest of gardens requires a considerable amount of maintenance, with each passing moment that that basic maintenance isn’t carried out contributing to the size of the task lying in wait of someone seeking to restore their garden to its former glory.
We’re certainly not here to judge though, because we’re fully aware of just how hectic life can get.
So there it is, we’ve said it. Garden’s can be tricky to maintain, and if you have teak patio furniture you are a caught between a rock and a hard place. You want to have a beautiful garden place to enjoy your teak furniture, but you do not have all day to clean and tidy!
When dealing with things like the fallout of a global health pandemic, one of the last things to enter your mind is whether or not your backyard lilies have had their watering… Okay, so there are indeed some elements of any garden you maintain which you make sure to take care of, no matter what, which is something that forms part of the proactive approach to garden maintenance. That is, of course, putting into place measures which pretty much make sure you won’t leave it be and eventually fall into some kind of disrepair.
Teak wood is straight forward to maintain
I for one always ensure to go through the relatively easy and often therapeutic maintenance route required for my teak patio furniture, which is easy enough to maintain in itself as there is no flora to consider something like the overgrowth of.
Okay, so what if you’re here because you want some inspiration to restore your garden to some kind of decent shape?
Make no mistake about the fact that it’ll be no easy task, because the various life forms which fight to survive to do so hard, including those of the likes of alien plant species and perhaps even pests.
That’s where to start. Start by removing the invasive plant and animal species, which you’d be fortunate not to have to worry too much about if the wood in your garden furniture is teak. Teak wood is not exactly a favourite among pests such as termites, but that doesn’t mean it’s immune to their invasion.
Once the plant and animal pests are dealt with, put measures in place to keep them away, because often the taking care thereof can make for all which you would have needed to do to rehabilitate your garden.
The severity of the invasion is pretty much what would dictate the size of the task of their removal, otherwise from here and on it’s about working with what you have at more of a cosmetic level. Trimming the hedges, for instance, in addition to dealing with the overgrowth of a plant you do indeed want to form part of your garden, falls squarely within the cosmetic side of garden maintenance and rehab.
