As we start a New Year we often decide that we will have new resolutions for the year ahead.
In this blog we wanted to add your garden into the mix of living well resolutions.
Look after your tools
Your garden tools need to be looked after and maintained to ensure they are ready for you each time you need them.
Make sure you rinse your digging tools off and dry
Give pruners or shears a soapy wash to remove any sap and dry
Always store your tools in a cool dry place and as organised as possible so they are ready when you are
Pests are ready
Yes, a new year may mean new pests or trying to get rid of old pests in your garden.
Regularly take the time to look for weeds to stay on top of their ongoing wish to take hold
Get to know the plants in your garden that tend to attract pests. Take the time to manage these pests with regular spraying or natural alternatives
Be water wise
While this is an obvious one, there are things you can do to make sure you are doing you bit.
Mulch on your garden helps to retain moisture in the soil
Using an irrigation system and a timer gets the water to where it needs to be.
Have a water tank to collect rainwater, perfect for your garden
Enjoy your outdoor space
Our final and probably most important resolution is to enjoy your outdoor space. You may have read that even just 20 minutes outside is great for both your physical and mental wellbeing.
Take the time this year and literally stop and smell the flowers.
