Garden Maintenance: 3 Things You Should Know for Healthy Plants, Asheboro, North Carolina

If you have a green thumb, you likely enjoy planting a garden and keeping it healthy. And once you get started, garden maintenance becomes an important routine to protect your favorite plants. However, it can be difficult to understand which landscaping and mulching techniques are most important for your garden. Thankfully, Steve Hinesley and Co from Asheboro, NC, have put together this guide, providing some great tips for your garden care.

What You Should Know About Garden Maintenance

1. Control Weeds

garden maintenanceWeeds are a source of many problems for gardeners, often providing a hiding place for insects and disease. To prevent these and other weed-related problems, it’s important to keep them under control. To do this, you can use store-bought chemicals and herbicides—or make your own for a more environmentally friendly choice. By controlling the weeds in your garden, you'll be able to keep your plants from experiencing any crowding of the area or being exposed to disease.

2. Support Your Plants

As your plants grow, they may need some additional support, which may take the form of trellises, A-frames, tepees, or even just simple stakes. Regardless of what you choose, you'll be able to benefit your plants and help them continue to grow. Typically, these structures help the plant to reach sunlight easier, and they also better circulate airflow. In addition, you will be able to better reach your plants when it's time to harvest or prune them.

3. Protect Your Healthy Plants

Finally, it's important to protect your healthy plants from nearby dead or diseased vegetation. Dying or dead plants—even the weeds you may have pulled earlier in the day—can be yet another hiding place for pests. Also, diseases can spread from plant to plant, beginning with a small infection on one plant. If you notice such signs of disease, be sure to remove the portion of the plant that is experiencing the infection.
