Are you coveting thy neighbors lawn? Sometimes it seems as if they have a secret to obtaining that lush garden. Truthfully, there is no super-secret formula for a gorgeous garden. Creating an amazing garden will take a little work and knowledge. Information about gardening is available online, in books and in magazines created for garden enthusiasts.
If you want to cover up your walls or fences, make sure that you specifically use climbing plants. These climbing plants will help beautify an old fence, and they are fast workers too. They also have been known to grow through existing trees or shrubs, or can be easily taught to cover any size arbor. Some need to be tied to a support, whereas certain climbers attach themselves to a surface with tendrils or twining stems. If you’re looking for the most reliable varieties available, choose from clematis, wisteria, and climbing roses.
Plants need a sufficient amount of CO2 for proper maximum growth. In general, higher amounts of CO2 are related to better plant growth. Greenhouses provide the best levels of CO2 for plants. For the best growing conditions you should keep the CO2 levels high.
Always take the time to get the weeds out of your garden. Weeds can take over a healthy garden faster than you think. A simple tool that is useful in removing weeds is white vinegar. White vinegar can not only kill the weeds, it’s also a non-toxic spray that won’t harm pets or people. Put some white vinegar in a spray bottle, and spray directly on weeds. If you don’t want to pull weeds out by hand anymore, give vinegar a try.
When mowing your lawn, be careful not to cut the grass too far down. Higher grass has deeper roots, meaning a healthier lawn that will be less likely to dry out. The shorter the grass, the shallower the roots, which makes the lawn more likely to develop brown patches.
Allow enough room between plants for air to circulate, so that plants do not stay too wet. Moisture on the surface of a plant can attract parasites, and cause disease. A commonplace plant parasite is fungi. Fungus can be handled with sprays specifically formulated for fungi control, but you must treat the area with spray before seeing any kind of problems.
Broad-spectrum pesticides should be avoided in your garden. These types of pesticides also kill the beneficial insects that eat the pests. Bugs that are good for your garden tend to be more susceptible to these types of pesticides, and using them could mean an increase in the pests you are actually trying to get rid of. As a result, gardeners often have to resort to using more toxic pesticides to get rid of garden pests.
Most of these tips are easy to apply in your own setting. You just need to learn what to do and apply what you have learned. Watch your garden to see how different plants respond to these new techniques. If one method of care is not working well with your plants, abandon it and try a different one. Have patience, and before you know it, your neighbors will be jealous of your garden.
