Coming to Landscaping, even if you have a service provider doing it, you may want to maintain it yourself as maintenance is not as difficult as coming up with a well-designed Landscape. Also, maintenance of a Landscape can take your mind off the routine and give a relaxing break while bonding with nature. Maintenance activities can be done fortnightly, depending on the amount of foliage and the type of plants you have.
Here are some important maintenance aspects that may want to address while maintaining your garden.
Keep It Clean: Mowing the lawn and removing unwanted garbage and foliage could make your Landscape look stunning. It could also work as a good work out for you. Depending on how soon your Landscape gets cluttered, fix a schedule to clean it.
Remove Unwanted Weeds: Removing weeds is an essential step in maintenance as weeds can take away all the essential nutrients from the soil and deprive the desired plants to grow and bloom. So remove weeds every week to safeguard your Landscape. Using weedicides may not be the best option as the weedicide can leave your soil poisoned as well.
Keep A Close Eye On Your Plants Progress: Check your plants often, taking a walk in your garden after a long day work could also help you relax and keep a close eye on your plants. Remove any infected parts of the plants and see if there is a lag in the growth of any plant that needs some extra nutrition. This will help you get the best results from your garden.
Do Not Use Fertilisers Or Pesticides: Using Fertilisers and Pesticides could leave your plants and soil poisoned for a long time and eventually make the ground barren. It would be a great idea to use organic substitutes like neem spray etc. to keep insects at bay and compost to fertilize the soil.
Watering: Water your garden properly, meaning give sufficient water not too much or too less, giving too much of water may kill the plant and not allow its roots to penetrate deep enough to become strong and can be uprooted easily. Giving insufficient water can kill the plant as well. Also, take the climatic conditions into consideration while watering the plants.
Furniture And Structure Maintenance: Maintain any structures, pillars or furniture you add to our garden as they are equally important to have an awesome landscape.
Trimming And Maintenance: Make sure to have a maintenance plan for your garden and implement at timely intervals. The maintenance plan can reflect the growth rate and climatic conditions. Trimming and maintenance would ensure that your plants are healthy and give good results.
Composting: Composting can be the best gift the soil can get. Try to make a place for a compost pit and fill and mix it at regular intervals. Compost created in your garden can be the best manure for the plants.
