So, you have moved into your new home and now you have something that you did not in your previous one. It’s called a garden; don’t be afraid of it and we will now explain how you can work together with your garden instead of against it. All jokes aside having a garden is considered for some a tedious task, and for others a meditating time well spent. In whichever spectrum you fall, the fact of the matter is that you will need to take care of your garden as it can soon grow into a wild place where you won’t be able to enjoy your time, and since it’s a part of your home it’s your duty to take care of it.
Let us get down to the tips on how every beginner can take care of his or her garden.
1) Create a no-stick shovel.
First thing is first, a garden without its tools is just a plane without a pilot. It will usually lead to disaster, and if you want to avoid a disaster you will need the right tools.
Once you get your show the first thing you want to do is make it a no-stick shovel. This can be done easily by spraying your shovel with a silicone or Teflon lubricant. We know its easy, and that is the reason why you should do it!
2) Restrict the growth of aggressive plants
In life, there will always be some things that are more aggressive than the rest. When talking about plants we want to restrict the growth space of the aggressive plants by putting them inside pots. If you want to have a few aggressive plants growing in your garden floor, you can still restrict them with the pots even if you plan to bury them in the ground.
All you have to do is bury them with the pots and leave the pots just a tad bit above the ground and you are golden. This will prevent the plant from expanding while it will still maintain the garden look.
3) Protect your flowers
Protecting your garden project from pests can be hard at the time. However, if you want to protect your bulbs and some of the flowers from the vast number of pests in the summertime, all you have to do is place a net over it and hang it on certain angles so that your plants still have a place to grow but the pest can’t pass the net to get to the plants. Once the plants grow enough you can easily remove the net.
4) Enrich your soil with the right stuff
This can be an extensive list so make sure to read up on what exactly your specific plant needs. If it needs calcium than you can save the egg shells once you make breakfast and throw them in the garden to enrich the soil with some calcium, for acid-loving plants you can use leftover tea and coffee grounds.
Make sure to further your knowledge and you will have a rich and healthy garden in no time.
