As Ontario Landscaping professionals, we know how important it is to prepare your plantings, lawn, flowers, edible gardens, and other desirable foliage by ensuring the soil is ready with plenty of nutrients.
Getting rid of newly grown weeds is also important, so overgrowth doesn’t steal resources away from the desirable foliage. Every weed growing in your flower or garden beds will reproduce, so pulling by the roots before they go to seed is important.
The beds may also need to be turned if the soil has become compacted. Fertilizer should be applied and mixed into the soil wherever possible. And a natural mulch is recommended to protect the soil and plants from too much water evaporation.
Natural pine or cedar mulch is helpful in keeping insects from taking over your garden areas. However, you may need to treat for insects, especially those which eat the roots of your plants and grass.
At Lay of The Land, we use a combination of special tools and techniques to keep your gardens lush, healthy, and beautiful. We use organic compounds as the best defense against the forces of nature that work against the natural elements which should remain in your garden.
TLC, healthy soil, the right amount of water, air, and sunshine are all that’s needed for an amazing landscape.
Garden Refreshing Tasks
If your garden was properly prepared for winter hibernation, there should be quite a bit of organic mulch still in place. Hopefully, the garden was also fertilized with organic fertilizer before the mulch was added. This mulch which has been slowly breaking down is turned into the soil wherever possible to create a rich, healthy soil for garden plants. However, a little more organic fertilizer may be needed depending on the needs of the plants growing in the garden.
Now, if your garden beds weren’t properly prepared for winter, there will be more work to do. The beds will have to be turned with the proper amount of fertilizer for the plants mixed in. Hopefully, only plants with similar nutrition and moisture needs were planted in the same garden bed, or some of the plants won’t do well. Also, heavy weeding and mulching will need to be done.
Annual, Perennial & Flower Garden Planting
Many people love perennial plants that bloom for their gardens. A perennial will survive the winter and grow again year after year. By planting perennials that flower, you have long-lasting foliage with a season or two of beautiful blooms.
