Hi There, Fellow Gardeners!
Today, Organic Gurlz Gardens of Fort Wayne, Indiana will be sharing information on Planting in your Outdoor Space.
Planting in raised garden beds and pots:
To organize your growing, start planting in raised beds! Growing is quite functional in garden beds and you can keep the great outdoors nicely managed at the same time.
In addition, pots are easy to move, and look great adorning a spot on the deck.
Depending on your mood, the season, or just the beauty of plants, you may have a certain ‘theme’ in mind for the atmosphere of the exterior patio oasis.
For example – in the up and coming holiday of Easter, you may prune some bushes to have the appearance of bunnies, plant your desired array of festive colors, and, of course, grow some carrots and other veggies.
A little too adventurous?
Simple gardens that have a few flowers here, some cherry trees there, and delectable vegetables as herbs are still wonderful to compliment your lawn or backyard.
A dinning set – that is now covered in vines:
Be aware of what type of vegetation you are growing by your outdoor furniture. The Ivy plant, for instance, is not a great natural porch décor unless you truly relish the hue of green – everywhere.
Bugs in the pool:
Protecting yourself and our helpful little creatures from falling (tree) limbs, stingers, and (is that a lettuce leaf swimming around?).
Safety nets and tarps:
An apparent practice, putting a cover over the pool helps prevent any falling leaves (or rolling blueberries) from enjoying a spa day. Plus, placing a tarp or screen over your personal whirlpool or pool may assist in keeping bugs and critters out.
*Be sure to secure the cover down to the ground. *
We all need to prune our plants for healthy growth and for use as a cool statement piece – so we at Organic Gurlz Gardens recommend cleaning up the cut portion after you prune trees and shrubbery!
*Place the cutting segments of the plants into the compost*
Don’t forget to tell your kids, grandchildren , nieces and nephews about the Kids Oasis!
