Put sod down the right way. Make sure you prepare your soil before you lay any sod down. Do some weeding if necessary, then break the soil until it's no longer packed. Make sure the soil is packed firmly and even. Water the soil until it's saturated. Lay the sod in straight rows, ensuring the seams meet perfectly. Pat your sod to form an even and flat surface, fill any gaps with some soil. Water the sod every day for a couple of weeks. Then it should be rooted well and ready for foot traffic.
Your plants will respond better to gradual changes of environment. Put them out in the sun for approximately one to two hours on the very first day. Over the course of a week, slowly increase the amount of time that you leave them outside. After a few more days, your plants will be more resistant and ready to stay outside all the time.
Start your plants in containers before transferring them to the garden. Doing this betters your odds of your plants making it to adulthood. It also permits you to tighten the time between plantings. As soon as you harvest the mature plants in your garden, your new seedlings will be large enough to plant outside!
Grow wheat or cat grass around the plants your cat likes nibbling. Another option is to protect your plants by lacing them with offensive entities, such as peels from citrus fruit or even moth balls from your closet.
If you've planted vegetables within your garden, make sure that they're getting at least six hours of sunlight each day. Most vegetables need this amount of sunlight to grow the right way at a faster pace. This is true for flowers as well.
You no longer need to buy inferior produce. If you follow the advice that you've just read, you'll be on your way to an even greener thumb!
