ORNAMENTAL UTOPIA

Beautiful gardens don’t need to be all about flowering plants, and there are so many options of beautifully textured grasses, trees, shrubs and other foliage plants to bring your space to life.  

Apart from simply increasing the aesthetic value of your garden and property, ornamental plants also improve the quality of the space in providing shade, cleaning up the air, acting as wind barriers, reducing erosion and providing habitat for wildlife. Consider adding layers of plantings from feature trees, to bush shrubs and hedges and underplanting in borders or using long grasses.  

We’ve combined two great Rocky Point products as the simplest way to get compliments on your Ornamental Utopia.

Put Rocky Point’s Garden Soil and Outback Mulch to work and create a nutrient-rich growing environment with stunning looks to match. 

How to get the best results for your decorative plants:

1. Plant your new ornamentals into holes dug approximately three times the size of the pot the plant has come in.

2. Place some Rocky Point Garden Soil in the base of the hole, and then backfill the remaining space once you have your plant in place. Water in well.

3. Cover the exposed soil with a thick layer of Rocky Point’s Outback Mulch, ensuring you leave a gap around the base of your plants.

As a guide you will need 2x 30L bags of Garden Soil for every square metre of garden bed and a 50L bag of Outback Mulch will cover a square metre at 50mm thick.

fertilising

FERTILISING

Fertilising regularly throughout the growing season with an organic fertiliser is ideal as organic-based fertilisers will also help to improve your overall soil health as they feed. 

MULCHING

Mulching makes you a water wise gardener. Make the most of every drop by ensuring all of your exposed soil areas are mulched at least 20-40mm thick. Coming into the warmer months, mulching also helps to regulate soil temperature.

sun light

SUNLIGHT

Ornamental plants have varying sunlight requirements, but this is great for creating layers and depth in your garden. Use plants that love full sun, to create shady spots for lovers of protected, cooler areas.  

WATERING

If time permits, setting up a timed watering system in your garden is ideal for ornamental gardens so you can ‘set and forget’. Just remember to switch it off if rain is forecast to be a water wise gardener!
