How To Make Your Flower Garden Happen

It would be a beautiful morning if we see our flowers bloom in our yard. What I have is not that many as I only started. If you are a newbie like me, I am sure you will be amazed how this little creature bloom one morning, I just can’t believe it.  

On the other hand, it may seem so easy to plant a flower, maybe for some others who have a green thumb they will find planting so easy. But for someone like me, you may find this very useful.  

Do not just get any soil, make sure you have the best soil to start your flower garden. Remember planting either seeds or flowers, if you don’t have the best this would make everything right or break because it didn’t work. Of course, we don’t want that to happen, I mean who would like that to happen? After the hardship and sweating and then you will not be going to get anything? Thus, if you want to get the best result for your garden, make sure you have the best soil for you to start. This will make the foundation stronger, just like if you are constructing your house, you wanna make sure that the foundation will last long otherwise you are just wasting your money.  

Check what’s the exact size of the potting for your flowers. If these flowers won’t grow tall then go for a medium size but if they would, then choose the larger size. Nevertheless, you have to make a plan, you have to know the flower that you are planting, the size and the light preferences so you would know how to take good care of them. When you are set for the kinds of flower you will be planting, now find the best location.  

Location is very important because there are flowers that needs more sunlight than the others, there are also flowers that needs to be in the shade otherwise they would last longer. Even though most of them can grow anywhere, it still best to check the light preferences of your flowers, putting them in a shady area or exposing them with too much sunlight won’t do good at all. Picked the best plot! 

If you would like to plant different flowers, choose those flowers that gets similar light or shade requirements so they can grow even on the same plot.  

As I mentioned earlier, you need to plan, check what you really want to plant. You may want to go to a local gardening stores or experts to inquire of what’s the best for you as a beginner. Seeds, small plants, bulbs are almost the same process. So, concentrate of the kinds of flowers that you feel like it and enjoy. Yes, they may look good in the yard but they may not be able to make it if you are not enjoying taking good care of them. They said, planting is the best stress-reliever and choosing the best flowers for you, would offer you even more. So, start planting!

Hope It Will Live Forever

I have so many plans here in the house now that my  resignation is fast approaching, yes my resignation will be effective this coming 24th of August.  One of my plans is to put some plants in the yard. Actually my sister already started it, I just can’t help as for the meantime since I am still busy with kids and work. I noticed though that there was already some plants ready to display in the back of our house, maybe my sister is just looking for some time to place it on the right spot.

I am not into flowers or plants but I realized lately that it is somewhat very neat and breathtaking if you have some green colors that surrounds your house. I just hope that I can take good care of it, otherwise I will just be waiting another dime because it got withered.

I am excited though but I am afraid as well because I once tried it, I bought one plant but sad to say, it didn’t last long, it was not even a year that it was with us. From then on, I didn’t try at all, this will be my second time if every. Hopefully this time, the plants that we will be putting up in our yard will live forever.

Three Tips for Getting Your Yard and Garden Ready for Winter

As the nights start to get longer, it’s time to start getting your home ready for the winter. One of the most important steps that you can take to prepare and protect your home and property from the upcoming winter weather is to make sure that your yard and gardens are ready. Not only will you want to make sure that all of your outdoor stuff is protected and safe from things like snow, ice, sleet, hail, and freezing rain or snowstorms, you also want your home to be a welcoming place for visitors during the holiday season that makes the winter so special.

First, you should make sure you that have cleaned up all of the yard and garden debris from the summer and fall. This means clearing out all of your annual plants. Consider planting a cover crop for the winter like fava beans, or plant a crop that will do well in the cold, such as kale or garlic. Don’t leave any plant material rotting on the ground, since this will attract pests and make it more likely that your plants will get diseases during the next growing cycle.

Next, protect all of your plants by mulching them before the first cold snap hits. In many places, you can get affordable mulch in the form of wood chips from trees that have been cut down by your city or county. Other options for mulch include hay or straw, which can be bought from a farm or garden supplier. Or, you can use the leaf clippings that you have collected from the fall as mulch for your trees. Just be sure to chop the leaves up first, as leaves can form a thick matted area that stops water from reaching the ground.

Finally, make sure that all of the large trees in your yard are in excellent shape before winter storms turn them into hazards. Don’t hesitate to call a professional arborist to help you assess your trees and trim them safely. For example, if you need tree Pinellas County tree removal, a respected company like Pinellas Arborist can get the job done safely before the winter weather comes to knock down your trees.

Once your home and yard are ready for the winter, it’s time to relax and enjoy the holidays. After all, you deserve it!

Can’t Wait To Have These All Done

Now that I now starting with a new company, I have so many things in mind for the house. I have so many things I wanted to buy especially for our lawn. I want to buy gardening tools so I can start already pulling off the weeds and putting up some plants. I heard there’s a plant for sale nearby so on my first payout I might go there to buy some plants. I don’t have a green thumb but somebody told me that I just need to buy a living plant then.  On the 2nd thought I might hire again someone to mow the weeds, because right now it is just too many, if I will be the one working for it, I may need one whole month for me to finish it. I also need a watering can. I spotted one and it cost P 200.00 oh I can’t wait to have these all done.
