The main reason people decide to go organic when gardening is that they think commercial chemicals, including pesticides and fertilizers, may degrade soil quality, harm the environment and cause long-term damage to their personal health. Organic gardening is also cheap and requires very little equipment. Here are some helpful techniques to help you learn to garden organically.
Pay attention to how you lay sod. The soil requires preparation before sod can be laid. Pull all the weeds and loosen the soil so the new roots can take easily. Lightly, but firmly compress the soil, making certain it is flat. Make sure you work with a moist soil. Then lay the sod in staggered rows so the joints are offset. Compact the sod down so you form a flat and even surface, then fill in any crevices within the sod by using some soil. You will have to water the sod every day for 2 weeks, and then it should be firmly rooted to the ground, and able to be walked on.
Use perennials resistant to slugs and snails. Snails and slugs can destroy plants in just one night. These garden pests prefer perennials with thin, flat, delicate leaves, particularly if the plant is not yet mature. There are, however, certain types of perennials that slugs and snails hate. Most of these varieties either have tough leaves or taste unappealing. Examples of these include euphorbia, hellebourus and achillea. Others you may want to consider are campanula and heuchera.
Annuals and biennials are an excellent way to add a splash of bright color to your flower gardens. Fast growing biennials and annuals can enliven a flower bed while letting you change up the look each season and year. You can use them between the gaps in shrubs and perennials where there is plenty of sun. There are plenty of varieties including petunia, marigold, cosmos, sunflower, hollyhock, and rudbeckia.
Start using these tips right away, and you will be able to enjoy all of the benefits of a healthy, pollutant free organic garden in no time. In addition, you will notice more wildlife that congregates around your garden. You can be one with nature! Start planning your garden today.
