The following contribution is from another author.

A lush green garden rarely appears by accident. You need to make sure you’re treating your garden with care and doing what it takes to give the best possible environment for your garden to grow. The grass really doesn’t have to be greener on the other side if you don’t want it to be!

Below we’ll give you some tried and tested advice that you’ll love if you want your garden to look its best. Take a look!

Look At Your Soil

If you want a lush garden, your soil is the first thing you need to think about. Make sure you’re adding organic matter to your garden every year and paying attention to soil health for the best results.

Don’t Get Rid Of The Grass Trimmings

Keeping your lawn tidy is important, but don’t pick up the grass that drops back onto your lawn from your weed eater. This can save you from using so much lawn fertilizer, as it’s a naturally way to keep your grass growing through nicely. However, on top of this you should still consider using a little fertilize – learn the needs of your plants and consider purchasing a time release fertilizer.

Invest In A System To Keep Your Lawn Healthy

A quality sprinkler system can help you to keep your lawn well watered and growing through green and healthily. You can contact Professional Irrigation Systems for more information on what to look for and get an idea of pricing. While you shouldn’t overwater your plants, you shouldn’t be withholding it from them either. Making sure you have an effective water schedule/system is a must. You can develop an early morning watering routine before the day’s heat reaches its peak, and the water will be given chance to fully soak into the soil before it evaporates.

Allow A Lot Of Green Space

Flowers are amazing, but don’t be afraid to allow your garden green space. Leafy green plants and evergreens can look amazing and give your garden more of that lush vibe. Plants with coarse leaves can also add to the lush vibe – Hostas are something you should check out.

Place Your Garden Ornaments Wisely To Give A More Lush Feel

Garden ornaments give your garden area a little more personality, but you can tuck them partially under a planting, and this will give it a bit of an overgrown look. It will add to the lush feeling!

Keep Greedy Weeds Under Control

Weeds are greedy and will actually drink up a lot of the water in your garden. You need to get rid of the competition if you’re going to ensure the plants and grass you care about can thrive and receive essential nutrients from the soil. 

So, now you know what you can do to make your garden healthier and appear more lush/green, start implementing these ideas into your gardening routine. If you have any of your own tips that you swear by, leave them in the comments below!
