These challenges include: weeding, watering, pruning, creating new beds, and mowing the lawn. Managing a large garden requires time. If you do not have time then you will certainly find managing a large garden difficult. In this article, we will look at a few tips in how you can manage a large garden. We hope you find these helpful.
1. Use A Calendar.
If you have a busy life style, you certainly wont have much time for your garden. This is where setting aside some time on your calendar for your garden comes in. Set a date or two during each week in which you can dedicate specifically to your garden. This way your garden will not be neglected so easily.
2. Come Up With A Theme.
Why not get creative and come up with a theme for your garden? Whether it be: an open garden, an easy care garden, cottage, flowers, native species, or a children’s paradise. A specific theme is sure to motivate you into wanting to get out and spend time out in your garden and mange it well.
3. Map Out Areas.
Try mapping out different areas in your garden that need to have a exposure to the water and the sun. Also map out those areas which do not require water and sun. This will help you decide what needs looking after first.
4. Make The Most Of A Shed.
A shed in your garden or yard really is a must. Here you can store garden tools, chemicals, soils and other things you require to manage your garden. Making the most of a shed will mean you do not have to store these things inside your home.
5. Use Machines.
Always use specific machines to help you manage your garden. Such machines might include one to help you to turn prunings into mulch. A lawn mower is also a must for every garden.
6. Garden Beds.
Garden beds are a great way to lift things off the ground. They will allow you to plant a range of plants with space in between those plants. Soil that has been loosely packed rather than ground soil that is hard packed.
These are just a few tips on how you can go about managing your large garden. Why not give these a try sometime. You may soon love being out in your garden and find yourself having more time than ever to manage it well.
