Eliminating Dandelion From Your Lawn

Eliminating Dandelion From Your Lawn

Eliminating Dandelion From Your Lawn – As the weather warms up and the grass begins to grow dandelions seem to pop up everywhere. The word dandelion is an English word that is derived from the French name ‘dent de lion’. This means lion tooth which could refer to the fact that dandelions have coarsely tooth leaves. Some feel this pesky flower got its name because it is deeply rooted in the ground. These plants are useful in different ways but people still consider it a weed that spoils the look of their beautiful landscape.

Eliminating dandelions can be difficult because they can grow in even adverse circumstances. The seeds that they produce do not remain dormant very long and quickly germinate.

Drought Tolerant Plants In Full Sun Gardens

Drought Tolerant Plants In Full Sun Gardens

Drought Tolerant Plants In Full Sun Gardens – Areas of your garden that face West or South naturally tend to be much hotter and receive much more direct sunlight. Taking a little time to choose the right plants for these demanding growing conditions can help save you time, money, and water, as well as improve your overall results.

Most plants will require more water under high heat/sun conditions unless they’re native to one of the desert regions, or when established, tend to be drought tolerant. Young plants, or fresh plantings, will require time to grow into their drought tolerant status. Root systems need time to expand and become established, and that length of time will depend in general upon plant type, variety, and the watering method you choose to employ.

Your Cottage Garden In June

Your Cottage Garden In June – June is invariably a busy month for the keen gardener with general garden maintenance consuming the majority of your time. Seedlings should be watered early in the morning and again late evening particularly if you have had a hot summer’s day. Whilst watering inspect the plants as this is an excellent opportunity for you to spot any possible problems long before they develop. Look for the beginning of any diseases or infestations for example greenfly and apply treatment to any of them early on prior to them getting out of hand.

When the weather conditions are very hot probably the single most crucial thing you could do in the garden would be to make sure the plants are kept properly watered.

Good Lawn Care Tips

Good Lawn Care Tips

Good lawn care tips – Proper garden care can seem difficult, but it’s not as hard as it looks. Here are a few general tips for making your lawn green and healthy no matter where you live.

Water it right. In general, you should imitate nature by giving your lawn a single long soak per week, rather than spreading your waterings out to shorter sessions each day.

Don’t cut too short. Long grass looks naturally greener – there’s more surface area on each blade, so more green showing. Longer blades keep the sun off the soil, keeping moisture from evaporating as quickly.
