Having a garden can serve multiple purposes from beautifying the exterior of your home to helping increase the value of your home to offering you much needed relaxation therapy. In as much as many people would love to have gardens, their busy schedules just don’t allow them to dedicate sufficient time to beautify their gardens.
However, maintaining the beauty of your garden doesn’t have to be a tough task. Here are 3 simple ways to maintain a beautiful garden.
#1 Ensure that it’s well watered
Most flowers will only require watering at least twice a week. This is a task you shouldn’t really have problems setting aside time for especially since the best time to do the watering is very early in the morning or in the evening as this is when the ground is cool therefore minimal amounts of water will be lost to evaporation. If you completely can’t find time to do the watering then you can invest in a good irrigation system.
#2 Ensure the lawn is well maintained
Never forget that your lawn is an extension of your garden therefore you should always ensure that it is well mowed and well watered. Never cut your grass too short so that it can provide good cover to your soil and prevent it from drying out. Your lawn will also require watering at least twice a week and this should be done early in the morning. Installing an automatic sprinkler will serve you well here.
#3 Don’t forget to weed
Weeds are the number one reason for spoiling the beauty of home gardens therefore you should allocate sufficient time for weeding. Here some preventive measures will be key such as ensuring your flower bed is densely planted to reduce space for weeds to grow, making use of mulch which will prevent the seeds of weeds from sprouting.
With these 3 simple practices, you can be guaranteed of a beautiful garden all year round.Read more
