A garden adds to the appeal of any property; residential or commercial. However, maintaining a garden is not easy if you do not possess the right maintenance skills. To efficiently maintain a garden, you should know about the different plants in the garden and their specific maintenance needs. Different plants have different needs; some require daily watering while others just need watering once a week.
