Cleaning up yard may not sound fun to you. But if you start doing it regularly you will find it fun.
When you clean your yard for a while you will start to wonder what is the fastest way to clean the yard. Is there any such method? Well, According to Pest Pick yes there is.
Today I will show you guys some methods through which you can clean your yard faster and more efficiently.
Start with proper tools:
Tools are underappreciated in gardening. No matter what type of garden you have or what type of work you do on your yards, there is probably a tool for that. Tools do a better job than hands. For example, you can’t mow like a lawnmower. They are made for that subject. While you can cut your grass down sure, but it won’t be smooth or even as a lawnmower does.
You will need some gloves if you don’t want to get your hands dirty. You will also need a pitchfork to drag leaves out of your garden. You can use the dead leaves to make a composter. To carry the leaves to disposal you will need a wheelbarrow or a yard cart
A wheelbarrow is a must need for gardeners. And if you are serious about keeping your yard tidy then a lawnmower is also a must for you. Invest in some good tools because you don’t need to replace them again.
Prepare the garden:
Before you begin the cleaning process you should prepare the garden beds first.
Rake up all garden beds. Remove all debris and extra plants from the garden.
If there are still unnecessary plants left on the yard after mowing. You need to get your hands dirty again. Just take out some scissors and prune those plants down.
Pruning is not fun by any means but it’s necessary.
Stop weeds in their track:
You can’t let weeds take over your yard or garden. If you don’t remove the weeds regularly, sooner or later the weeds will take over your yard.
You can dig them up and that will stop their growth totally. Use a weeder or your hand to dig them up from the ground.
You can purchase a weed preventer from a composter selling shop. There will be instructions on the preventer packaging. Make sure to read that before you throw the package out. The instruction will mention how much should you apply to a certain area.
With the help of a garden fork, you can spread mulch all over your garden. It helps the garden to stop weeds in their roots. You can also plant rye, clover, or buckwheat to cover the garden beds.
Cover control helps to control erosion and prevents weeds from sprouting during fall and summer.
They also help to build the soil for better.
Reinvigorate trees and shrubs:
Cut away all the dry branches from the trees. Or else they will fall on your yard and make your yard dirty.
You can use a pruning saw if the branch is too high. If the branch is small and not firm then you can use a plant knife or scissors to cut them off.
Rhododendrons, azaleas, and other spring-flowering shrubs, as well as maple, birch, dogwood, walnut, and elm trees all of them, can be pruned now. If it’s too hard to reach use a ladder.
If you want to take care of your garden and yards you can do that easily. But you have to put in the works. If you are not willing to put in the work don’t pick up gardening as a hobby.
