Basic Gardening and Lawn Care Tips

To some folks, gardening and lawn care is tedious and high maintenance. But don’t fret, because there are basic gardening and lawn care techniques that you can start with and follow as you begin your journey to a greener environment.

If you want a healthier lawn, here are some simple tips to start with:

1. Don’t over mow your lawn. It is best to keep the grass up to 3 inches in height to help with the weeds and help in retaining the strength of the roots of the grass. This means, you can mow at least 3 times a month or less and it saves you time and effort as well.

2. Replace and/or sharpen dull mower blades. Dull blades aren’t good for lawn grass because it cuts unevenly and allows diseases to form and harm your lawn.

3. Don’t discard grass clippings. Grass clippings contain nutrients that can help keep the soil and the roots healthier.

4. Fertilize during the fall to enhance reserves in grass roots to help them get through the winter and give them a jump start in springtime.

5. Water your lawn between 4 and 8 in the morning to help the grass dry under the sunlight faster.

6. Fertilizing and applying insecticides to your lawn should only be done when necessary. Sometimes, too much fertilizer can weaken the roots and cause damage. Too much insecticide or herbicide can make pests and/or diseases more tolerant.

Now how have a greener and healthier lawn, you should also give special attention to your garden by following these simple tips.

1. If you have great soil to start with, then there is no doubt you’ll only need to fertilize it every once in a while. Use a good fertilizer to enhance the already healthy soil in your garden. It is less hassle and low maintenance.

2. Choose plants that are low maintenance. If you are just starting a garden, this is a good way to start. As you become more familiar with the habit, you can incorporate other plants that need more attention.

3. Group your plants accordingly. If you have both high and low maintenance plants, group them together so you’ll know which group to attend to during the day.

4. Mulch to keep your plants and soil healthier. Mulching helps keep the soil and roots moist which in turn lessens watering and prevents weeds from growing.

5. Use ergonomic-friendly garden tools to lessen your strain and excess effort while tending your garden.

Having all these tips in mind, you can be sure that your gardening and lawn care will pay off.
