Your goal is to plant the best organic garden possible. Now’s the time! Below are some excellent ideas to help you begin down the road to an exceptional organic garden.
Lay sod properly. Before laying sod, you have to make sure the soil is accurately prepared. Eradicate any weeds and work the soil until it is very fine. Compact the soil lightly and firmly, and be sure to create a flat surface. Now make sure the soil is thoroughly dampened. Sod must be arranged in staggered rows; each joint should offset one another. After the sod has been flattened to an even surface, you can use soil to fill any remaining gaps. Sod must be watered every day for about two weeks, and then it will have rooted and be completely ready to be walked on.
If you do not want to expose your family to harmful pesticides in your garden, consider using organic pesticides. Organic pesticides do not have the harmful chemicals commonly found in ordinary pesticides. Fragrant herbs like rosemary, basil, and mint are often disliked by pests, and they are good choices to plant around your garden to ward off pests.
If you need the extra ammunition to rage war on weeds, consider planting your plants closer together even if it means planting them closer than what is recommended. Dense plantings will ensure that no seeds from unwanted weeds will sprout and grow in your beautiful landscape design. If weeds begin to sprout near the edge of the foliage, consider adding heavy mulch to drown out the pesky weeds.
Use water efficiently as possible. One of the most precious resources in the world today is fresh water. It just cannot be wasted, so the use of mulch and soaker hoses are an efficient way to minimize the impact of the garden on the water supply. Consider having a rain barrel near the garden to capture and save rainwater for a minimal impact garden.
Have a good stretch before starting gardening work. A good five to ten minute stretch will help loosen the muscles and get the heart rate up. The bodies’ muscles work better and are less prone to injuries when properly warmed up. Walk around the garden a few times and do a few simple stretches and the time in the garden will be a more enjoyable experience.
You should now feel enthusiastically prepared to enter the relaxing and productive world of organic gardening. You may have thought you were prepared before, but now you will be a veritable expert! The tips above should have given you some advice and a few ideas, so that you can begin an organic gardening adventure in your own backyard.
