Planting trees, flowers, and shrubs and creating a garden does not finish your work; you need to maintain the garden with care and affection.
Remember, only that garden blooms and is fragrant, which feels love, care, and attention.
A garden, devoid of even minimal care, quickly loses its harmony, charm, beauty, and unique, inimitable image.
You don’t require to be a master to care for your garden.
There are various techniques and tips that will help you cope with any task that the happy owners of garden plots face.
Trimming trees and bushes, feeding plants, cleaning the territory, and much, much more is hard work, but it becomes much easier if you use the technique.
Here are some best ways to maintain the garden at home easily.
Take care of Irrigation
In the hot, humid climate of the UAE, it is challenging to maintain the moisture of the soil.
But there are devices that will make your job easier.
If your garden is of modest size, sprinklers with nozzles connected to the garden hose can come in handy.
Passing through a narrow nozzle, the water comes out at a pressure enough for oscillating sprinklers to spray it at a distance of 5 to 20 meters.
The devices allow you to adjust the range of irrigation and the spraying angle so that water gets into a given area of the lawn.
Never neglect lawn care
You should not only take care of the plants and growths in your garden regularly; you should also pay enough attention to the lawn.
Because only green, even grass looks really neat. Sowing and mowing are essential items on your to-do list.
Remove the weeds from the garden
You must eliminate the weeds that grow spontaneously in the garden.
In addition to being unattractive to look at, weeds also risk stealing the nourishment destined for the plants you are most fond of.
You don’t have to do it too often, but remember to do it periodically, for example, once a month.
Another significant danger in garden care is pests that can attack plants and grass.
If you notice the possible presence of parasitic colonies, it is good to resort to the right solutions. Among the best natural remedies are neutral soap or even a special pepper spray.
These substances are indicated against parasites since they make the environment inhospitable and will block their proliferation.
These products can also be used for preventive purposes.
Also, for garden maintenance, it is always better to focus on substances that do not alter the physiological balance of plant species.
Another important aspect regarding the garden’s care is the soil’s fertilization.
Spring is the ideal time to enrich the soil of the flower beds or the one that is in the pots.
It is always necessary to focus on fertilizers specific for flowers and lawns or fruit or vegetable plants.
Compost must be added to this fertilizer, which is essential for the correct growth of the various plant specimens.
This is nothing more than an agglomeration of biological compounds that will allow the creation of a nutrient-rich environment for the plant so that it can grow better.
Definitely better to avoid those chemical fertilizers that can be found on the market and which very often turn out to be more of damage than anything else.
This is because they could negatively impact plant growth, significantly reducing it.
Pruning the plant is a necessary step from the aesthetic point of view that rapidity the plant growth.
When it comes to small plants, just make small incisions where there are dry pieces such as petals or leaves.
But if you realize you have to dedicate yourself to the pruning of trees or plants of large volume, it is always better to rely on specialized personnel made available by the various companies operating within this sector.
Along with irrigation or pruning, you must also own some garden tools as they are needed for adequate garden care.
We, therefore, start from the spade, necessary to turn the earth and mix it in the right way, up to the rake, useful for eliminating leaves and dry residues.
The planter can also be a useful tool for those who want to move plants from one soil to another or even the scissors that are useful for pruning and cutting the stems, stimulating their growth.
Then there is obviously the saw, essential for eliminating branches that are too long or that can be dangerous for people or things that are nearby.
Install a shading net
If you have plants that prefer cooler weather, installing a shade net is a great way to help them get through the summer.
Even summer-loving plants need a shade; continuous exposure to direct sunlight may wilt them.
If you have created a vegetable garden, a little shade will help them cope with hotter conditions and not create thermal stress.
Avoid bleach solutions for terrace maintenance and cleaning
Do not clean the terraces with bleach-containing solutions. Bleach corrodes concrete, marble, and brick; if it leaks, it becomes a real disaster for plants.
Also, avoid cleaning the terraces too often with a high-pressure jet device; marble, brick, and concrete can be damaged.
Plus, your delicate plants can be damaged due to high-pressure water from the jets.
Clean your terrace with organic products and rinse with warm water using a mop.
A properly decorated garden is at the same time a statement of the personal taste as well as the personality of the owner.
If you want to make your gardening experience more fruitful, aesthetic, and better planned, follow the tips above.
