German gardens: Little effort, utmost pleasure

There is no doubt about that: Germans gardeners a something special. Their overriding gardening aim is to get the most pleasure out of the least effort. Furthermore, whatever they do or install in their gardens should be absolutely environmentally friendly. And finally, yet importantly, the German garden must give a beautiful and neat impression.

The green tech industry and renewable energy sector is very dynamic in Germany. No other gardeners in the world are so ambitious when it comes to energy saving and environmental friendliness. Another distinct attitude of German gardeners is the preference for low maintenance gardens. For them, the garden is not a place to work in but to relax. It is all about being smart and as long as it is smarter to be eco-friendly, the German gardener is very willing to contribute. Solar lights, for instance, are not just environmentally friendly, they also save a lot of work. They only need to be stuck into the lawn without having to lay cables. Nevertheless, it is important for Germans that their gardens look beautiful and neat. Colours are therefore vital; and so are flowers. But again, when choosing the flowers for their gardens, German gardeners watch out for low-maintenance plants and prefer species that require little care and live for many years. The Germans’ preference for good results at little effort is also reflected by the vegetables they grow in their gardens or on their balconies. Everyone seems to grow their own tomatoes for they are easy to grow and require little space; and most importantly, they are convinced that their homegrown tomatoes taste so much better than any other tomato from the supermarket.
