Many homeowners explore the idea of installing their wood fence as a DIY project. While it can be done, in order to make sure your wood fence is safe, long lasting, and compliant with local codes, we advise against it. A fencing pro can help you have a smooth installation and is worth the investment. One of the most difficult parts of a fencing project is creating the post holes. They need to be exact so the rest of the installation goes in successfully and no utility lines are hit.
Pests are another concern for gardeners. After all, rabbits, squirrels, slugs and more feast on the tasty plants you are growing. Seaweed mulch is also a great way to deter pests without harming your plants. You may also consider planting mint and marigolds in your garden as pests seem to keep away from these.
Once you have started your garden, the key is to maintain it properly. Watering is key when it comes to maintenance. It is best to water in the morning so it helps the plants grow throughout the day. Alternatively, late afternoon is another time you can water for the most benefits.
Home trends, both indoor and outdoor, are pointing to healthy and holistic living. Having the perfect space to do so outdoors has never been so important until lately. As more people look to the benefits of mindfulness and relaxation, many are giving themselves a specific space to do so. A garden retreat of your own can be just what you need to reconnect and refuel after a long day. Most include a sitting area and privacy landscaping features, so you can meditate or work on your yoga practice in the comfort of your backyard.
