Have a garden but don’t know what to do with it? No need to worry. SpadesHome is here with 3 amazing gardening tips to make your garden healthier, last longer, and of course, make it more unique than others. Without further ado, here are the 3 magic tricks.

  1. Plant more native plants

Many people ask what native plants are. The simplest definition would be the plants which are found naturally in a region without human introduction. These plants are hardy and strong and do not need special care, water, or food to thrive. So, why use native plants? Here are some of the reasons which make them suitable for growth in your garden.

  • As mentioned above, these plants are strong and well adapted to the climate and region they belong to. Give them a little water and maintain them once annually, and they are good to go for the rest of the year.
  • Native plants are non-invasive, meaning they will not take over the resources and space reserved for other plants. Not all, but some non-native plants do that, aggressively spreading until they threaten to take over the native plant community. Thus, native plants are a healthy addition to the ecosystem and help it to grow and prosper. 
  • They serve as a food source for the wildlife of the area, and so will attract more beautiful birds, unique insects, and colourful butterflies, creating heaven for nature lovers.
  • Use the right equipment

Although gardening can also be done with a couple of knick-knacks and rudimentary tools, a good investment in gardening tools will make the place unique and healthy and prevent harm and injuries. Just like how a good pen produces good writing, the right equipment will give a satisfying output.

Shovels, trowels, spades, and forks are some excellent tools that can be used if you want to dig up your garden to grow seeds and small plants, and hoes are essential to dig out weeds and other unwanted plants. Another necessary tool, a garden hose and a pail can be used to water plants as needed, and shears and scissors are important when pruning the vegetation. The tools must be strong and durable so that they can last longer. Moreover, they must be cleaned and maintained regularly to increase their working life.

  • Prune your garden regularly

Pruning is cutting or stripping away those parts of a plant which are dead or infected with a disease. A regular garden prune is essential to keep a plant healthy for a longer time. Pruning removes excess dead leaves, flowers and twigs, and promotes the growth of the new parts. It also stops diseases from spreading. As soon as you spot a leaf or a twig touched by mould or rot, simply cut off that part to keep the rest of the plant healthy. Pruning plants is a great way to improve the garden aesthetic. The green and healthy plants will make the garden look lush, vibrant, and full of life.

Even if you are inexperienced in the art of pruning, some basic pruning techniques are easy to learn. However, if you are looking for the best results, hiring a professional would be for the best.
