Every year we get inquiries from people who are a little bewildered by the complexity of planning their first vegetable garden and don’t know where to start.
Vegetable Gardens is something very appealing to people who care about the environment. Environmental concerns are becoming more and more real every passing year. Being able to avoid buying packaged goods is a way that you can reduce your carbon footprint while enjoying the freshest vegetables possible.
Modern herb gardens are often used to grow herbs that are used as cooking ingredients and spices. Growing your own herbs will ensure that you will have fresh ingredients to use in your cooking.
There are literally thousands or millions of different flower gardens. Some include just one type of flower but most are a mix of different flowers.
A lush green lawn is a garden staple, but it's not easy to keep looking green. Lawn maintenance is important all year long, but especially in the hot summer months. Mowing correctly can go a long way. In the summer, make sure your lawn stays at about 4 inches tall. The extra height helps your grass retain more moisture in the searing sun.
For a cheap and easy way to keep your flowers and plants looking beautiful, look to coffee grounds. What would normally get tossed out can be used all around your garden to keep pests away, enhance your soil, and beef up your compost pile.
Rakes are indispensable tools for anyone with a yard. Leaf rakes can be used for a variety of purposes. A bow rake is great to use in the garden too. A bow rake can be used to clear leaves or spread mulch. It’s also perfect for leveling soil or breaking up hard garden dirt in the spring.
Shovels are also great for stirring compost piles or mixing potting soil before you add it to your containers. If you need to create a garden or level ground, a sturdy shovel is perfect for turning dirt or removing it. Look for pointed shovels, for digging. If you find regular shovels are too heavy, some designs are made of lightweight materials but are still perfect for digging in gardens.
While you may have all of your digging needs taken care of by a hand trowel and a digging shovel, you may find a garden spade to be extremely helpful in your garden bed.
