How to Maintain a Healthy Garden

Your garden is an extension of your home, so caring for it properly is essential. To make sure that your plants are growing and thriving, there are a few key steps you can take in order to maintain a healthy garden.


Steps to Maintain a Healthy Garden


Weed removal

Weed removal is an important first step; remove weeds as soon as possible before they have the chance to grow too large. Additionally, you'll want to start with quality seeds and plants suited to where you live—this will help ensure that your garden has the best chance of success.


Mulching

Mulching is another great way to promote growth; applying a 2-4 inch layer of organic mulch around the edges of your vegetable beds will suppress weeds, reduce watering needs and improve soil health overall. Finally, take preventive measures against pests like aphids and worms by placing traps or row covers over your garden beds.


Watering

When it comes to watering, make sure that your plants receive at least 1 inch of water per week from either rainfall or irrigation—vegetable gardens tend to need more frequent watering than other types of gardens during their growing seasons. Furthermore, conducting a soil test prior to beginning gardening will determine the nutrients available in that particular area and may require some compost or fertilizer to be added if the soil is lacking any essential elements.


By following these easy steps, you can maintain a healthy garden that will grow perfectly for years!
