Garden / July 2, 2018 /
Vegetable gardens are some of the more popular plants you will find in a backyard. Many homeowners wonder how they can start a vegetable garden from scratch. Start by creating your garden either by a garden bed or directly in the ground. You should be sure this location gets at least six hours of sunlight. Make sure you clear any grass and weeds that can regrow in your garden. Your garden plot does not have to be big to be successful. Many homeowners choose to plant their vegetables in rows for identification and access, making them healthier.
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.
