City Dweller? You Can Still Grow A Garden!

If you want a healthy organic garden, you have many options. All that is needed from you to have a great organic garden is to learn what they are, and to put them into practice.

Learn how to properly lay sod. Before laying sod, you have to make sure the soil is accurately prepared. Pull any weeds that you see, and work to break up the soil so that it is a fine tilth. Flatten your soil and make it slightly compact. Now make sure the soil is thoroughly dampened. Lay the sod in straight rows, ensuring the seams meet perfectly. 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. Water the sod everyday for the first two weeks until the roots grow enough.

Digging in clay soil with a shovel can be very difficult. The clay isn’t easy to work with and will adhere to the shovel, which only makes the problem worse. To make working in clay easier, rub the shovel with floor or car wax and then buff it with a cloth. The clay will slide off of its surface and it will prevent rust.

Be sure to weed your garden. Weeds will cause your garden to become overgrown and cluttered. White vinegar is one option you can use in your routine weed removal. You can use white vinegar to eliminate weeds! Putting white vinegar on your plants gets rid of much of the need to pull out the weeds.

Plant items with fall color. It doesn’t have to be this way, however. Foliage never looks as colorful and vibrant as it does in the fall. There are many variations in leaf color with different varieties of Maple, Beech and Dogwood trees that can give you lively yellows and deep crimsons. When you choose shrubbery, try hydrangea, barberry, or cotoneaster.

A superior garden can be created when one has adequate knowledge about how they can render the most from their plants. Be sure to try out these organic gardening ideas.
