If either of these statements ring true to you, then this short guide might just be what you're looking for, containing some handy hints and tips to keeping your garden looking pleasant whilst keeping the time spent maintaining it to a minimum - giving you more time to actually enjoy your garden with the people you love the most. Thomas Charles is just like most people, with a full time job and a family, who is far from a professional gardener but is willing to share with you the handy shortcuts he's learnt over the years. He hopes that you find this guide useful - and if just one person gets to spend more time with their family or doing something they actually enjoy as a result of this guide then writing will have been worthwhile!
