Gardening is a hobby that calls for special techniques. Being equipped with this arsenal of skills is vital to maintain a green garden, healthy, especially through summer time – the driest and hottest season of the year. As the temperature rises before and through summer time, cleaning the garden will help to ensure you have a beautifully maintained garden.
Just before the summer season arrives, you need to give the garden a complete clean. One way to do this is by getting rid of debris, such as dead leaves and twigs, in addition to any rubbish. Weeding the garden is recommended as well, since it eliminates the requirement for plants to compete for water during summer time.
Infected plants have the potential of spreading illnesses to other plants and the warm summer temperatures would be just right for illnesses to spread. Thus, it is crucial to throw away all infected plants if there are any around the garden.
When to begin
The best time one should start cleaning one’s garden in time for summer is a week or two before the summer months. This will give sufficient time for all problems in the garden to be resolved before the summer arrives.
Keeping it fresh and clean throughout summer
In addition to working on the garden before summer time, it is equally vital to do gardening to maintain a fresh and clean garden. One way to do this is by keeping one’s garden disease and pests free.
Pests and diseases in the garden tend to peak during the summer. That is why, it is crucial to watch out for these things as they can destroy plants. The sooner they are found and removed, the better it will be for plants.
Finally, to keep the garden healthy throughout summer, it’s advisable to clean it beforehand.
