In summer I personally love to spend time in the garden. It is the perfect place to relax and sit back. Especially sitting in my favorite chair and reading a novel while getting tan is something I love to do in the garden. But it’s also the best place for summer activities, like having a barbeque or a water fight with a group of friends. But summer is also the time when your garden needs some extra care. The amount of sun and the lack of rain can really take a toll on your plants and flowers. So in order to keep your garden alive and looking good all through the season you will have to give it some extra attention. First of all I would like to recommend making sure which plants need what kind of care. For instance some plants need more water than others. Meanwhile other plants do best with a certain amount of sun hours. This sounds like a job you don’t want to do, but I promise you it will be worth it in the end. Because now you have a clear image of how you need to take care of your plants and flowers and you can use this list every year. When you know how to take care of you plants, it is time to put that knowledge to use. Like I said before, your plants and flowers will need more watering now that it’s raining less. If you don’t feel like doing that yourself, it might be smart to get garden irrigation. This is a very sustainable way of watering the plants and it also saves you a lot of work and back pain. An engine water pump pumps rainwater from the ground and spreads it throughout the garden. Besides water, it is also smart to check on your soil every once in a while. It might dry out too much or it doesn’t contain enough nutrients. If so you can get extra nutrients without having to pay a fortune and it will definitely give your plants and flowers extra power to get through the summer looking gorgeous.
