Changing seasons affect the beauty of gardens, and worse, bad weather can flatten an otherwise blossoming garden. If you find yourself left with a patch of soil and wilted plants after a weather fit, you can fix it up with these three easy steps.
Clear the garden.
This, of course, is a logical first step. Remove any of the damaged plants and prune the ones that are left standing. You will also want to remove snails or slugs that can feed on the plants and slow down your garden’s recovery process. If bald spots start to appear on your lawn, determine their cause and apply the necessary treatment to prevent them from spreading.
Sometimes, there are plants you would like to have despite knowing that they could wither in the yard when the season changes. You can still have these beautiful plants to enjoy but put them in planters so you can move them indoors or in the shade to protect them and prolong their life when the need arises.
There are various pot designs available from old fruit and beverage crates to Italian designs. Italian garden planters, which you can buy from garden antique shops like Authentic Provence, are a versatile option since they can be used outdoors and indoors, and will go well with modern living space designs.
Shop for new plants.
Look for low maintenance plants that can withstand changing climate. It will make garden maintenance easier as there will be less seasonal clearing to be done. It will also save you money, as you will not have to keep buying new plants to replace the ones you removed. You also do not have to keep changing your gardening methods if you have the same plants all year.
These simple tricks can revamp the look of your garden in an instant, so it does not look distracting while you are in the process of completely restoring it back to a lovely, blooming patch.
