When we all imagine our ideal home in our minds. I’m sure that the majority of us picture a nice large garden alongside it. After all, we would all like enough land to use for some gardening and possibly a veg patch, as well as ensuring that we have enough safe areas in which our children and even grandchildren can play outside. So, in theory, a large garden sounds fantastic.
However, when you do get yourself a sizeable garden, it will quickly dawn on you that it can actually be hard work. Your spare time will be taken up with a lot of gardening. You will try and keep on top of all the weeds while also trying to ensure that it all looks pretty. Thankfully, though, managing your garden doesn’t have to be such a chore, especially when you have these following tips.
Getting to Grips With Your Large Garden
Keep The Pests At Bay
First of all, you should focus on trying to keep all common garden pests away. Otherwise, you might find that all your lovely flowers and plants end up nibbled or dead. If your garden is really big and you use a sit-down lawn mower to mow the lawn, you might want to try and fit some Ag sprayer parts to the mower so that you can spray the plants with pesticides as you go. If you want to try and stick to organic gardening, you can always place insect traps around the garden or erect physical borders around all your flower beds.
Make It More Accessible
One of the main issues that some homeowners have with their garden is that some parts of it are inaccessible. For instance, if a path doesn’t go to one end of the garden, then the lawn in that corner could end up quite boggy. This could prevent you from getting close to any flower beds to de-weed them. So, it’s important that you spend plenty of time trying to make the garden as accessible as possible. That way, there is no chance one part will end up like a jungle just because you can’t reach it!
Be Wise When Watering
If you don’t think carefully about watering your plants, you might end up wasting a lot of time while doing it. Ideally, you should water your flowers twice a day. This needs to be done at the coolest part of the day. So, make sure you are watering in the early morning and early evening. Don’t have time to water your garden twice a day? Don’t worry; you can always install some sprinklers and turn them on twice a day.
Hire Some Help
Still feeling overwhelmed with your large garden? Don’t panic just yet! You can always hire a professional gardener to come and help you out. They can take care of all the hard work while you tend to your pretty flowers.
