Sod should be laid correctly. Before laying the sod, the soil must be prepared. Take out any weeds, then mix up the soil into a tilth that is fine. The next step is compacting your soil and carefully leveling it. Thoroughly moisten the soil. Sod must be arranged in staggered rows; each joint should offset one another. Tamp down the sod so it has a flat and even surface, then using some extra soil, fill the gaps between. Once it is in place, the sod requires frequent watering for at least two weeks. This is usually the amount of time it takes for the sod to grow roots, making it ready to grow seamlessly into place.
To prevent your plants’ systems from becoming shocked, you need to gradually transition them from higher to lower temperatures. Try to place them in the new area for a couple of hours at a time the first day. Then over the next week, gradually increase the time they are in their new habitat. When the week is done, your plants will be ready for the big move without any problems.
When selecting among several varieties of a plant, choose the ones that will produce the largest yield. Traditional strains are often out-performed by hybrids that have been bred for cold tolerance or disease resistance.
Use biennials and annuals to beautify your flower beds. These biennials and annuals are fast-growing, and they allow you to brighten up your flower bed with a change for each season. You can use them between the gaps in shrubs and perennials where there is plenty of sun. There are many flowers you can plant in these gaps. Try marigolds, petunias or sunflowers for a brighter garden.
There is no need to purchase a costly chemical if your plants develop powdery mildew. Mix some baking soda and a very small amount of liquid soap into water. Spray this on the plants once per week until that mildew goes away. This solution is perfectly safe for your plants and gently treats mildew in a short amount of time.
