    Design a low-maintenance garden

    Want a low-maintenance garden? Let the plants do the talking by using gravel.

    Build a raised flower bed in the centre of your garden and fill with lots of colourful plants and greenery.

    Go for gravel in neutral colours to keep the focus on the flower bed.

    Potted plants, trailing ivy and overgrown trees add to the country-style theme. They are also incredibly low-maintenance.
