If you’re living in an apartment complex, the space left for gardening can be very small. Sometimes you don’t have a lot of time to maintain a garden either. When it comes to buildings such as these, communal gardens or shared gardens are preferred. These have to be maintained well, however.A beautifully maintained lawn and bright gardens actually add the value of the apartment complex. It gives the tenants a wonderful view and also an opportunity to just walk around and enjoy the greenery. When you’re a manager of a strata building, you have a responsibility to maintain its grounds. Maybe it is a new apartment complex that hasn’t focused a lot of attention on its gardens. First of all, you need to find an open space that is not taken for other purposes and make sure that is cleared of all debris. You can even get the tenants involved in the garden. This can be done by informing them of a community garden and asking for people who are interested in maintaining one. There will be people who share the passion for gardening and farming. The shared gardens can be a place to grow vegetables and fruits as well.But before you get the tenants involved, you first need to create and maintain the garden.
There are companies that offer services such as garden maintenance for apartment buildings. They will survey the site and examine possible ways of improving the landscaping. The area you have for a garden may be big or small. But you have to make the maximum use of what you have. There are flowering plants, vegetables, fruits, trees with spread out branches, beautiful vines etc. You can even have sections for different plants if you have a larger area. There has to be proper infrastructure for the garden such as garden equipment, seeds, manure, fertiliser, irrigation facilities and options for pest control. If your apartment building is located in an area where there is access to natural fertilizer, you can go for that. This will actually help the community that benefits from it. You can also create a garden that is in line with green principles and use the waste from it and the waste generated from the building to make organic fertilizer. The location may be subjected to seasonal changes so you will have to plan the garden according to that. If there is a winter season, you can grow plants that will help to re-fertilise the ground. The green methods will ensure that you don’t use pollutants or chemicals. It will not have a harmful effect on the environment. You can consult help from a green company to make sure that you create a unique garden.
