Gardening is something that everyone can get into, but not everyone can become a master at. This is not a hard hobby but is one that will require lots of time and patience, but we promise that the result is extraordinary when it comes to its full potential. Gardening requires some knowledge about plants, and how to feed and nurture them, same as humans they also need to have lots of minerals and a healthy surrounding if you want them to grow big and strong. To achieve this, we have compiled a list of some tips and tricks that every future gardener can start implementing into their garden.
Prepare your garden with some deep cleaning
Once you decide it’s time to start up your own garden, you have to clean it from everything that is not needed or wanted in it. For instance, if you have designated an area in the backyard that you want to convert into a garden, then you have to remove all the weeds, dead leaves, and of course to start nurturing the earth in that spot. For starters take a knife and start removing the plants that you don’t want to compete with the plants you want to plant in the ground as they won’t be enough minerals and other plant food for all of them. Remember that you have to remove the roots not just the top of the plant, as you don’t want them to regrow back in a short time. Also, there is a chance you will find glass, metal, leaves, sticks and other debris so remove as many of them as you can.
Start the revitalization process of the soil
Once you have cleaned the earth of all the pesky weeds and other debris, it’s time to start transforming that soil into something where plants can take life. The earth is probably dried up and missing the main ingredients for a healthy plant, so it’s time to go and get some of those chemicals that will boost your plants and their lifespan. Adding moisture and organic material can be applied with some manure or compost, add fertilizer and everything specific that the plants you want to plant in the soil might need.
The mulch can help your garden in every way. The best answer to how much mulch should be added is that you can start with 2-3 inches of mulch and then add more in time. Mulch is here to help your plants fight off many diseases and to cut down the chances of weeds popping out everywhere.
Make a shrub fence
Once you get the hand of planting plants and organizing your garden the way you like it, it’s time to make yourself a proper shrub fence. The shrub fence will keep away many things from your garden, that includes both the insects, the vermin and of course your pets. This can also be used to make lines between your garden plants as you can divide your garden into several different parts using a nice shrub fence.
