What is Garden Maintenance?
Garden maintenance describes the regular care involved in sustaining a certain appearance of your garden. This can vary depending on the person and the garden. Some people need their lawn cut once every ten days, while others need more complex garden maintenance. The amount of maintenance needed increases if you have a lot of plants or a very diverse range of plants.

How often should you water your garden?
In general, you should water your garden once a week, about 2 inches. Watering more often, but with less water is not recommended because the water evaporates and root growth is weaker.
How do you keep shrubs healthy?
To maintain the size and shape of shrubs, prune them lightly from time to time. You can use various tools depending on the area you are pruning and the size of the shrub. These include loppers, hand shears, and hedge shears.
How often should shrubs be watered?
Shrubs need careful watering to be maintained, in particular newly planted ones. Water them well once a week during their first season in the garden. If it rains, water them once every two weeks. Using a nozzle to manage flow (it should be slow), soak the soil around the shrub. Place the nozzle on the ground and turn on the water.
What is an eco friendly garden?
An eco-friendly garden is one that is maintained sustainably, where the homeowner is inspired by nature. The person in charge of taking care of the garden must consider the interactions taking place between the water, plants, soil, and other living elements
How do I kill weeds in my garden?
Salt is really helpful. Stir about 1 cup salt into 2 cups of water and bring the solution to a boil. To kill the weeds, pour it directly on them. Alternatively, you could sprinkle the weeds with salt. This will also work on unwanted grass that grows between patio blocks or bricks.
