The benefits of having a French property with a landscaped garden

A landscaped garden is not just a pretty garden. It's a garden that has been carefully designed. It's a garden that creates not just an outside space to your home, it creates a whole outdoor home! Think of a landscaped garden as another house, just one without a roof. It can have different areas for relaxing, areas for playing, areas for wandering and areas for dining. In fact, a landscaped garden introduces a whole new lifestyle. And as a garden is ever evolving, you can add features that reflect your individuality at any time.

Gardening is good exercise

There will be some work to do to keep your landscaped garden gorgeous. If you enjoy gardening, this can only be a bonus. Gardening in the sunshine of France is a pleasure you can only dream of in the cold grey UK. And its great exercise too. An hour of gardening is as beneficial to health and fitness as an hour's tough aerobic workout in the gym!

Maintenance may be required

The amount of maintenance required depends on the garden. Often, though, a well landscaped garden looks after itself better than an ordinary garden. It is a more natural area, planted with shrubs and tress that require little work. Plentiful planting keeps weeds at bay. And, natural grass areas take less mowing than pocket handkerchief lawns that have to kept clean shaven.
