I just started my garden and today’s guest post was extremely helpful! Hopefully it will be for you, too.
We are at the height of the spring season and the pleasant weather is starting to affect your garden. Every plant, tree and insect is waking up from its long sleep and that, unfortunately, might not be entirely beneficial for your garden. The time has come for you to put aside everything else in your busy schedule and declare one of the following days as a gardening one.
The deep cleaning of the garden after the winter is always the heaviest. It is also the most important one because it will define the way your garden will develop in the next couple of months. That’s why it is essential to put in this cleaning all of your efforts, if you want to have beautiful garden in the future. The popularity of the eco cleaning idea is growing fast because it can be easily applied not only to the household cleaning but also to the gardening.
For those of you who still aren’t familiar with this method but want to live healthier and help the environment, we present a couple of eco-friendly cleaning tips for the gardening:
Get rid of the pesticides and herbicides
The pesticides and herbicides are known as the best solution against pests and unwanted weed in the garden. Every person has used them at least once when trying to clean up the garden and as effective as they might be, they are also very poisonous. There’s no need to put your health at risk, inhaling the dangerous chemicals, when you can prepare eco sprays only with natural ingredients which will thoroughly clean your garden. The simplest one includes water, hot pepper sauce and soap for the dishes and it’s perfect against mites and insects. There is also another one which makes sure that once you get rid of them they will stay away and it requires simple ingredients like garlic, vegetable oil and hot water.
Baking soda, salt water and elbow grease for the outdoor furniture
If you have any outdoor furniture, you should try to look after them the way you look after your home furniture. They can sustain even more dirt and bacterias than the indoor ones and that could easily affect your garden. For the cleaning of the garden chairs and tables you can use baking soda and warm water mixed in a bottle. If you have a grill, then a little elbow grease and brush will do wonders with the stains and the dirt. The salt water, on the other hand, is perfect for any white furniture which seems a bit yellow.
It is not enough only to clean the garden itself, it is also important to make sure that there are no external factors which could endanger its health. One such factor might be the neighbours. If they use any chemical products in their garden, the wind can transfer them into yours as well. If that happens just give them a couple of your eco-friendly cleaning tips.
Stay away from the electric cleaning machines
The market is filled with all kinds of electric tools and machines for gardening which are not only extremely expensive but are also very dangerous for the environment. That’s why our advice is to keep your money and perform the garden cleaning mostly with your hands or leave it to professional gardeners London. That way the soil in your garden will have better consistency and you will also keep the environment safe from the toxic fumes of the machines.
Here is how with several simple eco-friendly tips you can give your garden the deep and thorough cleaning it deserves so that it can grow strong, beautiful and protected in the future. There are many more things you can do, of course, but the most essential one is to love and dedicate as much of your free time as possible to the gardening. That is the secret for a great garden.
