Who doesn’t want a spectacular garden to spend time in during Summer, entertain friends and family in when the weather’s nice, indulge gardening hobbies, and even enjoy during the cooler months – all you need is a firepit and lighting, right? But what about when your garden has issues?
Here, we’re going to solve some of the most common garden woes!
Is your lawn drying up because of drought? Not getting enough rain could be the issue, so make sure you keep an eye on the weather for any dry spells. Don’t fertilize any longer and make sure you water the grass deeply, but infrequently to get the best results. Cutting the grass can make a big difference; don’t cut it too short, and make sure you leave the clippings there.
Reducing foot traffic on the grass can help too!
You can’t get rid of weeds for all eternity, but you can take steps to get rid of most of them. A quality herbicide is the best way to do this, and you need to remove weeds before they seed. Read reviews on herbicide products to make sure they won’t damage your grass.
Maybe you have a problematic tree in your garden. The roots of the tree could be disrupting your plumbing, or growing under your home and threatening to damage the foundation. At the most basic level, it could even simply block light from your garden and make it too shaded to enjoy the summer. You can call a company like CARE Professional Tree Service to get rid of your unwanted trees safely and effectively. An amaetur job could damage your home and garden in the long term.
Bugs And Pests
You must remember that bugs can be beneficial, as they help to pollinate your plants and control harmful pests too. That being said, bugs like grubs can be a problem, as they feed on the roots of various plants. Make sure you do your best to make your garden unsuitable for pests, and if you see you have a real pest problem, call in a pro. Trying to handle it yourself could make it much worse.
Dead Grass From Pets
Your pet’s urine on the grass can turn it brown, as too much salt enters the root zone. Gypsum applied to the lawn right away can help to absorb the salts in the urine and stop them entering the soil. Try to pay attention to when your pet is about to go so you can combat the problem ASAP.
Some fungi on your garden is ok, but when they grow into diseases like fairy ring, it can be tough to get rid of. Watering the lawn in the morning and letting it dry during the day can help to prevent the disease. Over watering your garden or watering it too late in the day could contribute to a fungal disease.
