All homeowners can benefit from having a gorgeous garden on their property. When you own a beautiful and well-designed landscape, it aids in ultimate curb appeal, increases home value, and improves air quality. You can never go wrong by striving to have the best landscape possible. Here are a few common gardening mistakes that we’d like to help you avoid. February is ending, and spring will be here in a few weeks. Therefore, it’s the perfect thing for you to think about your home’s exterior!
Walking on or Working on Your Soil When It’s Wet Outside
When you walk on wet soil, this leaves air pockets in the soil, compacting the ground. When you attempt to till damp dirt, it results in clods, or lumps, that dry out quickly, and these clods will last all spring and summer.
Superficially Watering Your Grass and Plants
If you have an automatic sprinkler, you have to be careful with it. A common misconception is that you should water your grass and plants several times a day, but oversaturation is a problem. Also, not ensuring that water gets to the roots of the plants is an issue, too. We suggest that you water your plants early in the morning once a week, ensuring that you reach the roots of your plants. Take it seriously when we say that watering your plants seven times a day will not help them!
Not Treating Weeds Directly
The goal is landscaping is to always get to the “root” of the problem. We recommend treating weeds directly versus treating your soil entirely. As you garden, the goal is to refrain from poisoning your soil in any way, shape, or form. You want to kill weeds but not jeopardize your plant’s health in the process. Be careful of what you use to control weeds. When you call and hire us to take care of your gardening in the first place can ensure that your landscape is as healthy as possible.
