June is one season that beckons gardeners into the sunshine to tidy up their flower beds and set the summer bloom free. Unfortunately, however, many homeowners get too caught up in sunbathing to pay attention to their wilting lilies that just need a little bit of TLC. This year though, why not make a conscious effort to pretty up your outdoor space and perhaps even switch to healthier eating by growing your own veg.
Of course, with gardening, comes a few obstacles and nuisances that can ruin its aesthetics, not to mention its health. If this sounds like your back yard, read on, as we take you through just a few tips that will make gardening that little bit easier this summer.
Weeds, Weeds Everywhere!
Arguably, one of the homeowner’s greatest enemies when it comes to taking care of the garden is weeds. Popping up anywhere and everywhere, these pesky plants need to be taken care of to ensure the health and vitality of your outdoor space. You see, weeds have a tendency to steal nutrients from the ground in order to grow, meaning your lawn and flowers are likely to suffer as a result.
So, instead of leaving them to fester, be sure to tackle your weed problem safely and efficiently. You can do this naturally by removing weeds by hand or enlist the help of a specialist product. There are quite a few on the market that will help to kill off the weeds without compromising your flourishing garden’s health, so keep an eye out for these during your next shop.
Another big enemy of the gardener is, of course, pests. More than just an everyday nuisance, an infestation can be devastating for your flower beds and home-grown tomatoes, which is why it is so important to be vigilant when inspecting your outdoor space. Common signs include munched on leaves and veg, slime trails and yellowing plants.
