Whether it is fashion or phones we like to stay up with the latest trends and in the world of gardening it is no different!

Flowers are a common luxury that most of us indulge in. A single rose can make our day bright. A garden-full of different blooms, however, will feel like heaven. Flowers are nature’s gift to us, and it is proper that we return the favour by taking care of them.
In the book “Messias das Plantas” Carlos Magdalena, from Kew Gardens, defends plants at risk of extinction. Kew Gardens, close to London, is a key space of botanical diversity.
We have few botanical gardens in Portugal, the best in Lisbon, the one in Coimbra not well kept. In the Algarve we have only one.
Having a garden is not only visually appealing, but it also can be an investment if you are into growing your own food. As farmers move further from the natural ways of growing crops, many people are becoming increasingly concerned about what they are putting in their bodies. You definitely do not want to feed your family fruits and vegetables full of chemicals or, worse, genetically mutated food.
Artificial grass is the sign of a modern backyard. It is there to help you maintain a perfect looking lawn that is low maintenance at the same time. Let’s face it; people don’t have enough time to take proper care of every plant that they have, growing in their small gardens, especially when they are exposed to heat all the time. So, the artificial lawn is an excellent alternative to natural grass, as it also helps with reducing water waste.
