Garden Makeover


I’m feeling distracted today. I’m disturbed looking at my front lawn. I mean it’s just ok but not great. I’m terrible at gardening. I have no skills whatsoever and everything that I planted will die within the next few months..oh yes even cactus died on the hands of me!!! Most of my gardening n planting are done by bibik n mom. Infact while I was away on my holidays they revamp d whole garden and planted several species of plant and flowers. Not to be ungrateful..i love u mom but…uurrghhhh they’re so not me!!! How can I have ‘bunga kertas’ what do they call that in scientific terms??? Aarrrgghhh who cares…yeah how can I have that adorning my front gate??? Huhuhu…help!!! I am so in need of a professional landscaper.

My garden is just around 6 x 12 feet I guess..and so the thought of having water feature is way out of d question besides I wanted something easy to maintain. I already have an indoor courtyard with koi pond and there is no need to have more of those. I wanted something simple but nice at the same time it should leave an impact on my visitors and reflects a bit about the house owner..which is..simplicity!! I was actually thinking of getting rid of the grass and instead having those white pebble stones covering the ground and a few big vases of plants scattered around..hhmmmm but I really should consult the landscaper for more ideas.

I was hoping to get it done soon but I’m not sure how long does it take to complete a lawn of my size??? Perhaps I should visit Sungai Buloh soon to find a landscaper..well I should because until then I will have sleepless nite thinking about it!!!

Gardening comes easier now for we can use different systems and technologies to help us make our work lighter. I'd like to have these systems in my own garden.
