As experts in garden maintenance in Wahroonga, the team at Hort Culture knows just how annoying weeds in your garden can be. Not only do they look unattractive, but they can also kill your beautiful plants.
Here are a few helpful tips for getting rid of weeds!
Kill Weeds At The Root
When taking the time to get rid of weeds in your garden, it is very important that you pull them out by the root. If not, the weed will simply grow back, sometimes within a day or two! And this can be incredibly frustrating.
Not only does mulching keep the soil cool and moist, but it also deprives weeds of sunlight, making it difficult for them to push through the mulch and into the fresh air. Therefore, regular mulching is a great way to reduce the number of weeds in your garden.
Plant Close Together
When you plant your plants very close together, you leave little space for weeds to grow. This is more of a preventative measure rather than a method for getting rid of weeds, but it is still highly effective and what most professional gardeners will recommend.
Using A Weed Killer
While you may be hesitant to use chemicals in your garden, there are a lot of ‘natural’ weed-killing products out there, and sometimes weed-killer is your only option. Just be very careful when using weed killers around pets or children, and take the time to read instructions in depth.
Invest In Professional Garden Maintenance Services
Unfortunately, no matter how consistently you pull out weeds when you see them, they tend to grow back most of the time. So while weeding your garden may seem like a simple task, it is also a task that is often best left to the professionals. They’ll have all the right tools and materials to get rid of your weeds once and for all.
