Everybody wants to be able to have the skill, but mainly the patience in creating that perfect front or back yard they’ve been dreaming of! Whether you want to have a perfect looking lawn with that green grass or whether you want to have beautiful flowers surrounding it, there are many tips on how to do the gardening!
Firstly, you must identify when trying to keep that lawn perfect, which weeds keep on growing in your yard and how to stop them!
The most common weeds are dandelions, carpetweed, poison ivy for example. With dandelions you must dig out the root right from underneath it to stunt further regrowth! With poison ivy ensure you wear protective gloves as yes, they are poisonous! Dig plant at base and let it dry out. With carpetweed just give them a tug and damage them by pulling them! You can also use Non Selective Systemic Weed Killer for easier maintenance.
Once you’ve got rid of your weeds you just can keep your garden neat! Put a common weed killer down once every few weeks in the summer months and just water the grass in order for the grass to continue growing but not the weeds! When gardening it is important never to neglect.
There are many plants you must be cautious of that do not grow very well in certain months when gardening. You’ve got to check whether they can face that sun in the summer or whether they prefer to hide away in the winter months. Nobody wants dying plants dominating the aura of the entire yard!
Check for the specific strain of the plant or flower how much water they need before you choose to buy the seeds! Are you at home enough to give them the attention they need? Or would you rather have as little interference as possible? If so, go careful on which plants you choose or you really could be reeled into watering your plants twice a day!
Always ensure you’re planting those flowers and plants in the correct and healthy soil. If the soil is too dry or has a lack of nutrients the plants are more likely to wither quicker or not be as strong during the winter months.
Be sure never to overwater your plants, overwatering can drown your plants roots and the damage is usually irreversible. Be sure to let the water soak into the soil before you add more, if you think the plants are parched, ensure the water is soaking in before creating a huge puddle around the stem!!
When experiencing a drought and experiencing extremely warm weather, remember, just like us humans, your plants are going to need that extra little bit of water and attention to ensure they do not dry out. You might find the heads of the flowers turning away from the sun if this happens.
During a drought always be certain to cut the lawn less often, the grass won’t be getting as much water as it’s used to therefore growth is stunted slightly!
