Keep your garden soil healthy. Soils contain natural minerals and vitamins. That is the reason why if your lawn has a fertile soil, then you can easily grow plants.
Not only can you get the information on the dirt that you need, but they can take the soil, and tell you what to grow in it. As a way to do Organic Gardening successfully, they are a great source for getting extra tips. This is simply the beginning to developing a great organic garden. You can have a great organic and natural garden by finding out as much as you can and putting it into practice.
#2. You can set up your garden in one of two ways. You can either scalp the soil by taking away all existing grass and other ground cover and then break up the dirt, or you can smother the existing grass and ground cover with a thick layer of newspaper an/or cardboard covered by good planting soil. If you choose the latter, you will need to use landscape timbers, bricks or rocks to build walls around your raised bed garden.
When you plan your organic garden, remember that some plants, especially leafy greens like lettuce and spinach will mature well before the end of the growing season. Beds for fast growing plants can often produce two harvests in one season. Have more quick-growing plants ready to replace the early harvest so that you can maximize your garden’s productivity.
You can use mulch for effective weed control in your organic garden. For the most effective weed killing application, try using a layer of mulch that is very coarse and up to three inches deep. You may need to root weeds out of some hardy grasses to successfully get rid of them too.
Don’t chase away other allies like frogs and lizards. You already know that birds and certain insects are your allies. But remember that critters like frogs and lizards are too, as they eat a lot of insects.
