Summer is the perfect time to get your garden organized. It is important to remember that some plants are "aggressors" and can displace all the neighbors from the beds and beds. Other flowers - oleander, ivy and arum - contain toxic substances that lead to severe poisoning.

Gardening expert William Mitchell has shared five essential rules for proper garden landscaping. The details were revealed by the Express publication .

Rule 1

The first and basic rule is to protect the garden from pests. Fragrant plants such as mint or lavender planted around the perimeter can repel mosquitoes and flies.

Aphids, grubs, caterpillars and beetles do the most damage to trees and shrubs.

The main symptoms of garden pest damage are:

  • sticky leaves;
  • holes in the leaves;
  • the presence of wilted leaves;
  • appearance of brown leaves with irregular edges;
  • slow plant growth.

It is also important to control moles- they not only spoil the aesthetic appearance of the lawn, but also eat up to 80% of insects, worms or grubs from their weight, disrupting the healthy ecosystem of the garden. Moles damage the root system of plants by tearing up the soil with their large claws.

Rule 2

The next important step is timely and proper weeding of the beds. Weeds take vital nutrients and moisture from the soil. By shading young and healthy plants, weeds prevent them from getting the proper amount of air and sunlight to develop and grow. The expert advises pulling out weeds with their roots and throwing them out of the flowerbed immediately.

Rule 3

Cut back dead plants regularly.

"Another incredibly important rule of thumb is to remove any plants that have begun to brown or die," Mitchell noted. Not only will this help stimulate new shoots, but it will guarantee bright and lush blooms. Dry and damaged leaves will draw vital nutrients, sunlight, pollen and moisture away from young plants.

Rule 4

Water the plants regularly, but make sure that watering does not lead to waterlogging. Moles like moist soil, because soft soil is easier to dig up and there are more earthworms in it.

It is sufficient to water the plants two or three times a week during the intense summer heat, taking into account natural precipitation.

Rule 5

Lawns grow much faster in the summer because the grass has more access to sunlight. Mitchell recommends mowing your lawn once a week. Tall grass can harbor pests, including mites. Mowing should begin when the vegetation is more than 10 cm high. How to properly mow the lawn or you can leave on it cut grass - read in the material.
