There’s always going to be work in your garden, no matter how easy you try to make the art of gardening.
Even though almost every gardener enjoys working to keep their garden in shape, it can a bit hectic leaving you feeling as if you’ve got too much on your plate.
So, keeping this in mind, here are 3 ways you can make gardening easier:
#1:Lower maintenance perennials
Of course, there will always be plants that require a lot of maintenance in your garden that you cannot do without but it’s important to have low maintenance perennials like Sedums and Astilbes that don’t need any deadheading, staking or pinching but they look good all season too.
#2: Group plants by their needs
While one way of doing things involves putting the right plant for the right spot, another way of looking at it is to group all the plants that require a large amount of water,deadheading or even a lot of vegetables that need to be harvested daily or hourly. You won’t have to do much after you sort them out this way as you can get through each of these chores quickly.
#3: Involve your children or grandchildren
It’s a good idea to show your children or grandchildren how much fun gardening can be from a young age. While they might not enjoy the activity of deadheading but they can participate in a number of other simpler tasks. Even if they might be able to help with the heavy stuff but their presence can make gardening a pleasant task.
