Looking after and maintaining home garden is just a lot of fun. Spending time in your home garden is particularly good for health as it keeps a person closer to nature and one feels great while gardening. For many people, maintaining a home garden is quite a task and they do not exactly know from where to start and what to do exactly in order to maintain a healthy and green garden with colorful flowers, shrubs and trees all the time. Therefore, some important rules for maintaining a home garden are:
If you want such plants in your home garden that provide shade to you and your house then it is best that you opt for fast growing plants which grow taller and have broader leaves to provide shade. Start off by sowing seeds in about 4-5 inches of the top soil and use compost to provide nutrition to the soil in order to let grow the trees for your home garden quickly. Make sure that you water the home garden regularly as it is very important for keeping up a good shape of your home garden.
If you want to bring a little bit of accent and style to your home garden then opt for landscaping. Landscaping can be done in different ways depending upon your choice for your home garden and its size too. Appropriate amount of landscaping has to be selected with regards to the size of the home garden otherwise the home garden can look very weird.
Get rid of the weeds
In order to have lush green grass without any weeds and other stuff growing in your home garden, make sure that you pull out the weeds regularly from your home garden. Just look around the home garden and start pulling off the weeds from any place. They help in better growth of grass.
Trim and support the plants
The plants which have grown too much especially the trees, try to trim them a bit as it allows better growth of plants in your home garden. Just use a pair of home garden scissors and trim the rough or extra long edgings of different plants. Also, the plants which are expected to grow tall or have a vertical growth, make sure you attach them with some support like a bamboo stick or a plastic rod so that they maintain their shape and look good for your home garden.
Even if you want your home garden to have a wild look with different types of plants and flowers growing here and there, you need to make sure that you plan symmetry or a pattern for different plants and flowers to grow in your home garden. The more planned your garden is, the better it will look to you and others. Therefore, put plants at proper and well selected points and maintain a neat and classy look for your home garden which looks just perfect in every season and everyone. Any kind of clutter whether inside or outside the house, always looks bad!
