With spring just around the corner, now’s the time to start getting your garden ready for the spring. If you’re new to gardening or haven’t had much luck in the past, growing a lush and healthy garden may seem like a daunting task but with the right preparation and care, it can be a simple and rewarding experience. Here are a few tips and tricks for growing a healthy and flourishing garden from the experts at Canada’s Gardenland.

Watch Out For Pests

Some species of insects are good for your garden, but other types of bugs can cause serious damage to your plants and flowers. Species such as ladybugs, lacewings and hover-flies can be beneficial to the development of your garden by eating harmful insect species such as aphids. One of the best ways to keep harmful insects out of your garden is to get rid of any dead plants. Dead plants, fallen fruit, and other natural debris can become nesting places for bugs and insects that will eat away at your garden. If you’re really having trouble keeping harmful bugs at bay, there are a number of all-natural and non-toxic insecticidal soap sprays that will ward off insects without harming you or the plants in your garden.

Ensure Proper Fertilization

The best way to encourage a lush garden is through proper fertilization. Strong, nutrient-rich soil is the key to growing plants that are healthy and hardy. Sod fertilization is a great way to provide your garden with the strength and nutrients it needs. Sod fertilization helps to prevent weeds from taking over your garden, and also help to maintain healthy green grass by providing the  lime, potassium, phosphorus, and nitrogen it needs to remain strong.
