We have compiled a list of the best tips that everyone can use in their garden to make their life just a bit easier. If you are tired from the heavy lifting or just can’t stand those bugs eating at your plant life, then read below how our advice can help you enjoy your garden again while making it ten times easier for you.
Create non-stick tools
When it comes to using the tools in your garden, we all know that the worst part is to keep them clean once the job is done. Not everyone wants to waste time cleaning the dirt of all the tools that were used, especially if it’s the beginning of spring and you had to use all your tools for the first time after the long winter. To avoid the tedious task of cleaning every tool, this little tip can help you shave off a few hours when it comes to gardening. Just apply a nonstick adhesive on the tools. Use a silicone or Teflon spray that you might even have in the kitchen and just watch as your tools can be cleaned with a rag without any water pressure or additional cleaning methods.
Restrict aggressive plants with a pot
There are tons of plants that love to be the boss in your garden. While it’s hard to keep them at bay, and still care for them, all that you need to do is to restrict them with a nice pot. Place them in the pot and then the pot in the ground and your life will be so much simpler when it comes to the protection of the non-aggressive plants.
Cut the weight of the pots by half
When you have big plants, you need big pots. When you start growing your garden you might notice that every new pot that you bring in is becoming heavier and heavier. To make this job a bit less strenuous on your back, you can fill the bottom of the pots with foam peanuts. Place them at the bottom and then cover the area with a fabric that can let the water flow through it. This will make the pot perfectly filled for the heavy earth, but only for half the pot as you won’t need so much dirt. The plant won’t mind, and if you are thinking the roots will be in trouble, they won’t. They will find a way to fill the rest of the pot, and as long as you give it enough minerals it won’t be missing out on anything.
