First Thing’s First – It’s All About Knowing What Trees Thrive In Dubai’s Climate
Dubai’s climate works for certain plants. For your home garden, it’s best to go for trees that consume less water like Bougainvillea, Ashoka, Sago Palm, Date Palm, Frangipani, and Desert Rose.
Trees are an excellent choice for adding color and texture to your outdoor garden space. There are many types of trees that can be used in Dubai, including palm trees, cypress trees and willow trees. Unsure which plants are best for your individual needs? Drop in at our store and meet our team of experts who will be happy to help you find the perfect tree (or two).
Caring for Your Garden in Dubai
In order to keep your garden in Dubai looking its best, there are a few key things to remember. First, always be sure to water your plants regularly. In the hot desert climate, they will quickly dry out without proper hydration. Secondly, pay attention to the amount of sunlight each plant is getting. Some, like the Sago Palm can survive as an outdoor plant, but cannot take harsh, direct sunlight. Place your plants carefully to thrive. Lastly, fertilize regularly to give them the nutrients they need to grow strong and healthy. With a little care and attention, your garden will be a beautiful oasis in no time! And as always, our team is on hand to help with advice at every step of the way.
Finalizing Details to Create an Outdoor Haven
Ok, you’ve got the trees – so how about adding furniture, décor and all those little details to create your outdoor sanctuary? Here are a few of our must-adds to consider…
Lighting: You’ll want to be able to enjoy your space at night, so make sure to add some lighting. String lights or hanging lights are popular options because they are easy to install and create a warm, inviting ambiance.
Storage: If you have small items like table linens or cushions, you’ll want to find a place to store them when they’re not in use. A storage bench or chest is a great option for keeping things tidy and out of the way.
Practicality: Don't forget the basics! Ensure you have everything you need to make your space comfortable, including chairs, tables, umbrellas, and anything else you might need for entertainment or relaxation. Check out our options to make your barbeques, breakfasts and garden days memorable.
If you have the space for it, why not include a water element? Not only do they offer a balanced feel but water elements such as fountains offer that blissful touch of Zen we all crave.
Creating your own little garden oasis allows you to escape and recharge. From cleaning up an outdoor space, working on an indoor project or adding in some personal touches, there are so many ways to create a peaceful atmosphere – whatever your budget or space.
And we’d love to help you make it happen! The reward? An improved sense of well-being and an outdoor space you’ll want to spend much more time in. Start creating your own special sanctuary today and enjoy the tranquility that comes with it!
