If you have a small patio and you want a simple but well-maintained garden, you only need two things: determination and knowledge. Here are some tips on how to keep your garden near the patio looking trim and glamorous.

Top 6 Ultimate Yard Tips for Gardening:

1. Deadheading

Keep its edge free of withered flowers and dry leaves. The dead head or the removal of dead flower heads will encourage plants to produce more flowers for a longer time. Many perennial plants, such as geraniums and dahlias and some annual plants, benefit from the removal of flowers.

2. Pinch the covers.

Certain plants, especially foliage plants such as Coleus, respond with an outburst of growth when their cups are pinched. Pinching outward makes the plant more leafy and more flowers are produced. Fuchsias are prone to becoming leggy unless they are pinched.

3. Fertilize lightly.

A minimum amount of fertilizer will further increase the growth of your vegetation. If you water your garden frequently, you should fertilize it more regularly due to the depletion of nutrients. A biweekly application of liquid fertilizer is sometimes more beneficial than granules since the leaves absorb it more easily. Container plants will be considerably healthier with a medium concentration liquid fertilizer solution applied regularly.

4. Remove

This is one of the best ways to preserve the beauty of your yard garden. Remember, weeds compete with your plants for nutrients and moisture. If the weeds are not close to the planting, leave them on the bed to rot by the mulch. If you must use a weedicide, try to get a wick applicator, instead of an aerosol. This will protect your plants from drift by spraying.

5. Water them well

A good tip when it comes to watering your garden around the yard is to give it a full bath once a week, making sure there is no runoff that causes erosion. Deep irrigation will encourage the growth of deeper roots that can withstand dry periods in the direction of climate

6. Say no to chemicals

Chemicals are dangerous to humans and often kill the natural predators of the pest in your garden, so avoid them if possible. There are many organic alternatives that work almost as well.

With these simple tips, your garden next to the patio will soon be the envy of your neighbors.
