How to Move Your Garden

posted in Moving Tips by

If you love gardening and the outdoors, chances are your home has a beautiful, sprawling area filled with your favourite flowers, shrubs, and even trees. You’ve put a lot of time, love, and energy into making your garden the best it can be. When it comes time to move house, you might despair about leaving your beloved garden behind. Well, never fear. There are ways to successfully transport your indoor and outdoor plants to your new home.

Rely on the Removal Experts

First things first. If you’re hoping to move your plants or garden, you will need the help of a professional removalist. Our team at Lynns has experience assisting homeowners with effective transport of their plants. While it is possible to do this, it will involve some careful planning and processes to ensure everything goes smoothly. If you have a garden you’d like to move, we’d be happy to assist you!

Getting Prepared

Bringing your garden along for the big move is most doable when your relocation is local. An interstate move might also allow for this, but be sure to check the laws for your new state, as areas like Tasmania and Western Australia have strict limits on plants crossing state lines. A cross-country move might also prove more difficult for sustaining the plants, while bringing plant life on an international move is generally forbidden.

Before your big day, get your plants ready for their transport.

Some shrubs don’t need to be removed in their entirety. Rather, you can take clippings of the fast growing ones. Clumping plants are also a good candidate for only bringing along a small portion of the plant. Pot plants are one of the simpler parts of the garden to move, as they are already easy to transport, but you’ll need to make sure they are healthy and ready to go. Gardening experts suggest using a seaweed extract in the weeks before the move, which can help your plants deal with stress. On the moving day itself, don’t water your pot plants or they will be too full and heavy to mobilise. When you arrive at your new abode, you can give them a big, long drink.

Consider Each Plant

When looking at your yard and garden, consider which plants will be worth transporting and which will not. If you’re moving to a region with a different climate, some native species in your garden will not do well there. If there’s a type of plant you know you can easily find and replant again in your new garden, your best option may be to leave the existing plant where it is. Consider the difficulty of moving large plants and the current garden space in your new yard. Will it accommodate these items?
