The main quality of a gardener is usually patience. Indeed, it is sometimes necessary to wait long months to see the result of his efforts. But don’t panic, if you want to give a pretty appearance to an exhausted and poorly-designed garden, a few tips will allow you to quickly enjoy the charm of your exterior.
Start with a small lawn area
Do you want to enjoy a pretty lawn right away? It is quite possible if you opt for roll grass (turf). This solution is very fast and the rendering is aesthetic. Once you have ordered your lawn in roll, you need to prepare the ground. First of all, it must be perfectly leveled. Also, add some soil or organic fertilizer and compost that you incorporate into the first 4 inches on the surface. Press again, the ground must be flat. The day before the laying, water your land.
As soon as you receive the roll, roll your grass down as you would for vinyl. Put the leaves in a staggered position and then you press them down so that the roots adhere perfectly. Water regularly and copiously until it grows back. The first grass mowing should only remove grass tips. Afterward, you maintain it like a classic lawn.
Structure your garden
Amenities such as arbors, kiosks, pergolas or bridges, immediately give a lot of style and a spectacular side to your garden. You can even paint them in white or another color so that they stand out even better.
Try to create small, intimate spaces with wooden, wrought iron or claustras panels and install your most beautiful garden furniture in the shelter.
You immediately give a soul to your garden only with little features and a little work.
When you buy your plants and shrubs, consider picking them already in flowers and large enough sizes so that they bring their effect right after plantation.
A fountain in your garden is an element that brings a lot of charm, especially if it is surrounded by colorful perennials.
All these tips give the impression of having worked his garden for a long time and offer a stunning result.
Choose fast-growing shrubs
Instead of taking shrubs that will take months to develop, choose fast-growing species such as Crepe myrtle, Forsythia, North Privet, PeeGee hydrangea, or American hazelnut.
If you live in the south, you may consider planting Hibiscus and Oleanders that have the feature of making their show long.
Shrubs are important, and so are trees that structure your outdoor space. The Eucalyptus and Willows grow very fast, while the Cypress of Florence will bring the privacy that can miss your garden.

It is very gratifying to see beautiful little flowers of different species coming out right away.
Plant already grown plants
If you want a garden that is ready, colorful and green right away, the easiest is to buy plants of a large size that are already flowering. Obviously, the cost will be higher, but you will have the pleasure of having a beautiful garden much faster.
Choose the perfect hedge for your garden
A garden that seems to be well maintained and gives a finished and clean appearance is often provided with a pretty hedge. but at the beginning, it can be too small, and it takes a few seasons before the desired size is reached. You can perfectly create it with shrubs that are already a little big and grow quite fast. Aim for plants that fit your garden soil and its exposure to sunlight. You will see an excellent result by choosing the appropriate species for your garden.
Focus on annual plants
To quickly create beautiful flower massifs that give your garden an elegant and refined touch, take seasonal flowers.
