~ If you are lucky enough to have a backyard, then the one thing that you want to do is make the space as pretty as possible to your own liking. This is your little piece of the world and you get to do what you want with it. Whether you have a paved and low maintenance garden or you have a full green lawn with border flowers and trees, there are so many things that you can do to beautify the space and make it stand out!
You do not have to be particularly green-thumbed to be proud of the work in the garden.. If you have a green space in the garden to work on, you can make sure that it thrives and take it to the next level. You could upgrade the flowers every season, and you can upgrade the patio and deck to Archadeck, but no matter what you do, your garden is going to be gorgeous. You can improve your garden and make it look beautiful.
- Make Your Container Plants are Healthy. A nice, premium potting mix will make your plants thrive and get the nutrietns to be as healthy as possible. Soil that has pine bark, peat moss and other ingredients to enrich the roots of the plant will make some beautiful potted displays this way!
- Get The Right Tools. Your garden needs to be equipped, and that includes having the right tools in the garden. From weeding forks to a knee pad to relieve the pressure while you work on the flowers, you need to make sure that you have the right kit in the garden. Even if you only want one tool in the garden, you need sharp shears to cut back the dead plants every day.
- Layer Your Bulbs. Did you know that your bulbs are self-sufficient? You can pack bulbs into pots and plant them so that they bloom in the right time of year. You can layer different bulbs in huge pots and stagger the growing times so that you always have something blooming in the garden.
- Watering Tips. There are plenty of systems that you can use to water your garden, from irrigation systems to sprinkler lines to really keep the lawn as bright and healthy as possible. You can add automatic timers to your taps and ensure that your garden is watered and they don’t dry out – whether you are at home or not. You can sit back and relax and realize that your garden is going to be looked after and pretty all year!
- Choose Lasting Flowers. There are certain flowers that last longer than others. There are always new varieties of flower around, but choosing billowing hydrangeas and lavenders will give you a lasting, versatile garden that you will always love to see blooming.
- Keep The Pests Away. You can cover your border flowers and bushes with fabric and netting to keep the pests away. It helps to keep the wildlife away from the yard and stops them from feasting on the homegrown produce you are growing in the garden. If you have raised veggie beds, non-invasive netting will protect them from birds and bugs and you can enjoy your veggies yourself.
- Always Keep Plants Supported. If you want your plants upright and blooming toward the sun, use bamboo sticks! Cane and hoops with rings can transform the borders in your garden. It prevents your stems from falling down and flopping and make the whole garden look gorgeous. There’s nothing better than seeing your plants and flowers thriving, and your garden looks groomed and effortless as a result.
- Pinch The Heads Off The Flowers. Deadheading the flowers is vital if you are trying to keep your garden looking well and the flowers healthy. Flowers can’t stay looking good when the heads of them are dying off. Deadhead the annuals and perennials and they will live longer and make you take notice.
- Choose Raised Beds. Raised veggie beds take a little bit of your time to assemble and find a neat home for them. You need a thick compost layer and you need manure that is well-rotted to feed the roots of those veggies. If the soil is bare, the worms will help. There are veggies that you can grow in pots, like tomatoes, and the ones that are raised beds will mean that your veggies require much less attention. Your veggies need to thrive for your garden to be full of life.
Make it a very nice day.🌴
Until next time, dear friends.
