5 Easy Tips For A Perfect Garden

by Doreen Corriveau 04/28/2019

Everybody wants the garden the neighbors say “wow” at in amazement. But building the perfect garden doesn’t happen in one day. But by taking note of these easy steps, you can start your journey to a creating that perfect garden of your dreams.

  1. Take care of bugs as soon as they appear. You have to watch out for bugs and insects and deal with them as soon as they show up. They don’t just destroy the aesthetic value of your garden, a lot of bugs actually act as carriers for viruses and bacteria, transmitting them from one plant to the next. And a plant that is under insect attacks is less likely to be able to resist diseases.
  2. Don't tolerate weeds. Weeds are the biggest enemy of your garden. They compete with your legitimate plants for sunlight, water, and nutrients. Get rid of them early enough too. It is easier to kill off small weeds than large weeds. Spray them, pull them out or hoe them away, but whatever you have to do, do it to get rid of them.
  3. Space your plants appropriately. Overcrowding isn't good for humans, and it isn't good for plants either. Spacing plants too close together mean that they have to compete for the same amount of sunlight, soil water, and nutrients. Such conditions also make it easy for quick transmission of diseases between plants.
  4. Don’t overwater or underwater your plants. An overabundance of water will bring about rotting roots while water shortages will cause flowers to wither away. Keep on practicing until you know just the right amount of water good enough for your type of soil. When you water too, water in such a way that reduces the amount of moisture on the leaves, as disease pathogens need water to thrive just as much as the plants. The best way to water is to water the roots, holding the foliage out of the way. Those are the parts of your plants that need water. 
  5. Always apply the right amount of fertilizer. Too much ammonia can damage plant roots and reduce their water intake, making them more liable to come undone by drought or heat. If you are not sure of the right amount of fertilizer to use, contact your local agricultural extension agency and they will provide you with accurate information.
