At this point you’ve decided it might be done. Your gardening hobby isn’t working out the way you wanted and it’s taking a toll on you. So you could either quit and slowly let your garden get uglier by the day, or you could hire someone professional to do all the maintenance things for you. You may be thinking that, but there’s another option, well two. Just take out all the plants and change everything up for tiles and a sleek look, or get yourself some new gardening supplies that will help you get through this. Maybe you’ll change your mind.

It’s all dead right?
Having a garden with dead plants can barely be called a garden anymore. At this point it might as well be a graveyard… Dead plants aren’t saveable, but not everything that looks dead, is actually dead. If you know what kind of plants you have, google the plants and see what you can do about it. Maybe they’re sleeping, and you should wake them up with some water. Or maybe they’re flowers that die down a bit in the winter, but bloom again once the right temperatures set in. Just make sure you do your research, same goes for getting new plants, go for something that lives up to your expectations but also needs as much attention as you’re willing to give it.
With a little love, not too much
There are still people out there who love you and want to spend time with you. Don’t get too caught up in all the work, to the point where you cancel plans because you’re “working on the garden”. If you want to work on the garden so much, you could always try and ask friends if they would like to do that with you, if not you just move along and find someone else to do it with you. No idea is too crazy.
I’m not saying you shouldn’t spend time on everything in your garden, but there is such a thing as ‘too much’. Make sure you don’t get addicted to it, I’ve heard that once you start and get the hang of it, you’re going to be obsessed with gardening and inspecting and wanting every plant you see, think about your bank account.
It’s not a jungle
Even you might have seen it, people who have something that looks like a jungle in their backyard. Everyone should do their own thing, and should do what they think looks good and works well with what the aesthetic they are going for, but don’t over do it.
You should still be able to take care of the amount of plats you have. Imagine having so many and just forgetting half of them because they are hidden or very small. You don’t want to make the plants feel left out right?
