If you live in an apartment complex, the strata will generally take care of garden maintenance. Homeowners not a part of a strata can seek landscaping services from one of the many companies in Cayman.
Alternatively you can maintain your own garden. Equipment such as lawn mowers and fertiliser are available from most home centres such as A. L. Thompson’s, Cox Lumber, Kirk Home Centre and Uncle Bill’s. There are also very good plant nurseries with experienced staff who can advise you.
Like anything else on your property, your garden requires regular care and maintenance to ensure its health and curb appeal. This ranges from specific pruning and fertilisation treatments to bouts of pesticide to treat the pesky army worms and cinch bugs Cayman lawns can occasionally fall victim to.
Weeds and pests happen, but with the correct upkeep, your garden can stay looking luscious year-round.
The Cayman Islands has a selection of large plant and tree nurseries that specialise in fruit and flowering trees and an extensive array of tropical plants. They also sell an array of garden accessories to enhance the look of your garden.
Planting trees on your property in the Cayman Islands will help to keep your house cool, give shade to your children as they play in the garden and add character to your property. But, not all trees are created equal. Some support life on our tiny Island, others are invasive and wreck havoc on Cayman’s fragile environment. Read this helpful section to avoid planting the wrong tree.
Cayman has a thriving community of bees which ensure that our fruit trees continue to bear abundantly. However, sometimes these bees can overtake a corner of your garden and may need to be safely removed and relocated.
