Don't Make these Mistakes When it Comes to Looking After Your Garden!

Sunday, July 17, 2016

Keeping on top of your garden can be hard in the 21st century. We are so busy with life and sorting out the rest of the home that the backyard is often ignored. But we need to get out there to make sure it looks fantastic. Here are some mistakes people make when it comes to looking after their garden!

Not making it low maintenance

One mistake people make when it comes to their garden is not making it low maintenance. They think it’s a great idea to plant so many different flowers, but then they struggle to have time to look after them. You need to consider how much time you have to spend in the garden before planting anything that requires a lot of maintenance. A lot of people are having artificial grass installed in their garden. It means you don’t have to tend to real grass, and you can often choose turf that looks like natural grass. You can read more about the benefits of getting artificial grass in our previous blog. If you do want to plant flowers and have real grass, you may want to hire a gardener to keep on top of it.

Not getting a landscaper in

Another mistake people make when it comes to their garden is not considering getting a landscaper in. They will do a professional job which will look great, and people often regret not getting one to transform their garden. If you have a small garden, they will be able to revamp it so that you are utilizing the garden. You can contact many companies about their landscaping services to find out more. They will come out and plan with you how to make your garden look perfect.

Not getting rid of pests quick enough

You also don’t want to make the mistake of not getting rid of pests quick enough. Pests such as slugs will eat your plants during the night, and they aren’t easy to spot. You need to make efforts to get rid of them sooner rather than later. They hate coffee granules and salt, so if you place these around your plants, they will stay away. You can also make a spray such as a pepper spray which will also send them scurrying away. You need to do it quickly. Otherwise, they could soon be infested in your garden.

Not growing your own vegetables at the right time of year  

Another mistake people make when it comes to their garden is now growing their own vegetables at the right time of the year. You need to make sure you are checking the instructions so you know when you should be planting them. If you do it at the wrong time of the year, you won’t see any grow until the following year. The same works with plants; some you need to plant in the warm season, while others are best planted in the colder seasons.

Make sure you are not watering the plants too much. A lot of people end up killing the plant by over watering it. You should make sure you stick to watering them a couple of times a week!
