06 Dec Planting Between Lawns & Vegitation
This is another gardening task that humans undertake in an effort to create a clean and tidy look but unless done skilfully this edging gives the gardens a worn and overworked feel. It tends to be done when house servants, contractors and their staff have a need to be seen to have “done something, anything”. It is fine to trim a clean crisp narrow line along the edge between a flowerbed and a lawn but it is another thing to dig a trench 200mm wide on the edge of the same area. Use a pair of sheep shears or a clipper or strimmer not a garden spade. Rather have the lawn crisply cut without an edge and redirect the effort into mulching and dead heading plants.
Don’t rake the leaves out of planted areas leave this mulch of leaf litter in place.
ZEMA would like to discourage the use of concrete imitation cobblestone edging to areas of lawn. This is not in keeping with the architectural language of the Resort.
