Do not improperly lay your new sod. Before the sod can be laid, you should prepare the soil. Do some weeding if necessary, then break the soil until it is no longer packed. Lightly, but firmly compress the soil, making certain it is flat. The soil should be adequately moistened. You should lay your sod staggered, and have the joints offset. Firm sod until there is an even, flat surface; fill in gaps with soil. Water the sod for two weeks and then you can safely walk on it as it will have had time to properly root.
Climbing plants and vines are great for covering fences and wall structures. Climbing plants are extremely versatile, helping to hide an ugly fence or wall, often within one growing season. They can also grow through existing shrubs or trees, or be trained to cover an arbor. Some may need to be attached to a support, and others will attach themselves to any surface using their twining stems or tendrils. There are many varieties you can choose from. Honeysuckle, climbing roses and jasmine are among the best.
Bring some plants into your home to protect them against winter weather. You should probably save the most resistant or expensive plants. Dig around the roots carefully and transfer the plant to a pot.
Yes, you really have to weed. Weeds can kill a precious garden. White vinegar has been known to kill weeds quickly. The acid in white vinegar kills weeds. You may also be using plants that need that very same acid. A spray solution is much easier to apply than to rid your garden of weeds by hand.
There are grass varieties, such as wheat grass or catnip, that will give your feline something to nibble on besides your garden. Another option is to protect your plants by lacing them with offensive entities, such as peels from citrus fruit or even moth balls from your closet.
Separate irises. Increase your iris population when you divide up overgrown clumps. If you notice a dead foliage, lift the bulb. The bulbs should split up normally in the hand, and should flower when replanted for the next year. You should divide rhizomes using a knife. Cut rhizomes from around the outside then throw away the remaining center. Each piece should have at least one strong offshoot. Replant the new shoots right away.
Be sure to buy a wheelbarrow and a kneeling stool that you can use for your garden. It’s rough on your knees to spend lots of time on the ground kneeling or squatting. That’s why it’s a good idea to have a portable, lightweight garden stool on hand. There is also a lot of heavy lifting involved with gardening, so a good wheelbarrow is a great tool to have around.
