Keep the plants to a minimum – this it would be easier to maintain them, and your outdoor space will actually look much prettier.
- The next thing to do is to form a compost for garden waste, vegetable peelings and the kitchen junk. Composting is a great way to dispose of any organic waste accumulating on your property. It is an environmentally responsible solution, and the end product can be put to use for fertilizing your garden.
