Some Tips on How to Make Your Garden Look Great.
Summer company coming? Does your garden need a lift? Here are a few tips to make it look fresher in a hurry. Take gardening shears or sharp scissors and clip all the dead heads off your flowers. This encourages new growth and looks nicer. Remove all dead and yellow leaves. Pull out really big weeds and hoe around your flowers to loosen the soil and remove unwanted plants. The quickest way to make the flower garden look great is to apply a thick layer of mulch between the plants. I like red cedar mulch the best it looks really nice if you have a lot of green plants and shrubs and is not to expensive plus some pesky insects dislike it.
Rake up any pine needle and debris like old leave i put mine in the composter, I have a black pail kind. The composted material is great for adding to your perenials in the fall. Your garden will appear neat and attractive. I like to purchase some decorative things from the dollar store like butterfly stakes and solar lights. If you have a lot of weeds you can make the mulch thicker and this will smother them. Voila your garden looks great. Hopes this is useful.
