My wife and I have had a garden for as long as we have been together. We both love to grow things, and it has always worked out that she takes care of the flowers, bushes and plants, whereas I will grow the fruits, vegetables and herbs. It is just what we prefer to do, but one thing to which both of us will attest is that garden maintenance is so important for both types of gardening, and there are a number of reasons why this is the case.
Proper garden maintenance is one of the big keys to having a successful and attractive garden. It is something that my wife and I have learned through trial and error over the years and have been able to pass on to friends and neighbors who are starting their own gardens for the first time. It may not seem like that big of a deal, but if you want to avoid a lot of headaches down the road, maintain your garden properly and regularly.
Gardening is a amusing leisure activity, because people either can’t get enough of it, or they don’t know a hoe from a rake! For those who are who presently have your gardening catalogs dog-eared, from frequent perusals, you most likely cannot hang on to get outside and get things going for spring season. Garden preparation can be some of the heaviest work of the season, but is completely worth it when the seeds start sprouting and the rose bushes start to leaf out. Having said that, it’s also important to busy yourself with the proper spring garden preparation tasks initially. Even some seasoned gardeners suffer a loss of patience, waiting for spring to come and start digging and adding amendments too soon, which can cause an inferior soil structure and much less blooms! Let us take a peek at how to approach your spring garden preparations to optimize your results throughout the warmer time of year.
