Properly lay your sod. Before laying the sod, have your soil prepared. Break the soil into fine tilth and make sure you remove any weeds as well. Lightly, but firmly compact the soil, making sure it is flat. Make sure you work with a moist soil. Lay the sod down in alternated rows, keeping the joints set off from one another. Make sure the sod is firmly placed to ensure a surface that is sufficiently flat and even. Also, make sure to use soil to fill the areas where there are gaps in the sod. After two weeks of daily watering, the sod should be rooted; at this time, it is now safe to walk on it.
Choose higher yield plant varieties. Normally, hybrid plants that are disease-resistant and cold-tolerant have a greater yield than traditional varieties.
Start your plant in pots before you plant them in your garden. By allowing them to sprout first, you are increasing the odds of a seedling reaching maturity. It also allows you to tighten up the time periods between plantings. After you remove the mature plants from your garden, you can immediately replace them with the seedlings and start the cycle over again.
Stink bugs can damage your garden, especially if you garden in the fall. Stink bugs are attracted to tomatoes, beans and most fruits. If not managed well, they can wreak havoc on your garden.
If you want your garden to blossom with flowers throughout the spring and summer, plant some bulbs in it. Planting and growing bulbs is very simple, and once planted the bulbs will grow for years. Specific types of bulbs usually bloom at specific times of the season, so if you make appropriate selections, you can be rewarded with blooms from the early part of spring to the later part of summer.
