Thursday Is ‘Weed Your Garden Day’ – Spend Some Time Clearing Your Soil

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Sunday, 26 July , 2015
weeds-in-the-garden

Millions of people around the United States have gardens of one type or another, and tens of thousands of people in San Diego County grow their food, their herbs and their flowers at home. Humans have been gardening for thousands of years, and even in the modern world many people still grow their own products for the aesthetic and nutritional benefits despite having the ability to purchase these products at a nearby retail outlet. However, anyone who gardens will tell you that what you purchase at the grocery store simply is not the same as what you grow yourself.

Along with the gardening that people have been doing for thousands of years has been another constant – weeds. Weeds are actually quite incredible species when you think about it, as humans have been working to eliminate them for nearly as long as they have been gardening. Despite all of these efforts, weeds have continued to survive and they continue to thrive in the right environments and locations. Unfortunately, many gardeners have become overwhelmed with weeds or they have simply tired of fighting them and they’ve given up on their gardens.

Everyone understands this battle with weeds and how it can be demoralizing, which is one of the reasons that tomorrow is Weed Your Garden Day. This is a day for gardeners around the world to join in solidarity and to spend some time weeding their gardens. This may be the kick-start that will help many people who have been letting this ongoing responsibility slide for a few weeks and get them back into growing their food and herbs.

That’s really the key to handling weeds – putting time and effort into it. Most experts agree that depending on the size of your garden, even a few minutes spent weeding per day can provide gardeners with the opportunity to stay on top of this fight and to never allow weeds to fully take over a space. While this is easier said than done for most people who are busy, it’s rare that someone cannot find five minutes to pull some weeds.

In addition, there are some strategies to keep in mind when dealing with these pests, including:

  • Water your garden before pulling weeds, as the soft soil will make it easier to pull them out by their roots.
  • Allow weeds to grow to at least one inch tall before pulling them, as that will also provide a better opportunity to pull them out completely.
  • You can prevent weeds in your garden by putting down some weed cloth and growing your crops around them.

Of course, these are only a few ideas, but all of them will help you in your ongoing battle against plant life that has managed to grow for millions of years. You could also put professional San Diego landscapers in charge of this situation in your yard so you don’t have to worry about it.

  • Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways.
