Here are some items included in the lists that you need to be aware of:
- Selecting a tree
When you buy a tree that is grown in a container, the first thing that you need to do is checking the root. Remove the tree from the pot then examine its roots. Avoid buying a pot-bound tree of which roots are congested or a tree of which roots are coming out of the holes in the bottom of the pot. Be sure that the container is watered thoroughly. Also, see if there are any dead branches or yellowing leaves.
- Check your store
Make sure that the store does not sell soil containing pests. Occasionally, if you get the soil from big home improvement stores, the soil bought could possibly contain pest like aphids. To terminate the insects as well as their larvae, place the soil in a metal baking pan and put the covered pan in a 400-degree oven. Let it stay in the oven for about 20 to 30 minutes. Make sure the soil is cool before using.
- Set your mower
Before you begin to use your mower, set the mower blades at the highest preferable setting to your type of your grass. Never cut the grass more than 1/3 of the height. If you ask why? It is because the appropriately mowed grass is able to grow and support more roots. Also, it can develop a deeper root system to seek water and nutrients in the soil. Cutting the grass too short will reduce the ability of plants to produce energy for growth. Cutting too deep also can cause your lawn to be more prone to weeds.
- Planting vegetable properly
When it comes to plant your vegetable garden, bear in mind that there are some plants that cannot grow well when mixed with the other while others can. Some plants cannot be placed next to each other. Therefore, you need to particular combinations. For instance, broccoli cannot be placed next to tomato, etc.
