3 Ways to Manicure Your Garden

3 Ways to Manicure Your Garden

During prime gardening season, plants are reaching their full size, flowering and maybe even producing fruit for you to enjoy. However, that doesn’t mean your time in the garden is finished. It’s also the time to follow through with touch-ups that can go a long way toward maintaining your garden and making your flowers look their best.

Deliver a manicured look to your garden by making sure these three garden maintenance tasks are on your to-do list, so you can keep your landscape in tiptop shape all season long:

1. Edge Your Beds

Spotlight your flowers and shrubs by using an edger, like the TBE550 Gas Lawn Edger/Trencher, to edge garden beds and along your driveway and walkways for a clean, fresh look. A nicely manicured lawn perfectly accentuates your beautifully maintained garden and landscaping.

2. Weeds Be Gone

Nothing is more frustrating than weeds crowding your petunias. The secret to weed control is to weed well before you plant, then maintain your garden with a regular weeding schedule throughout the season. The TB22TM Trimmer Mower has a wide reach and thick trimming line that clears more weeds, which will help make weeding easier. Don’t stress if you get behind on weeding early this season, because each and every year you make it a priority, you will see fewer and fewer weeds grow in your garden over time.

3. Mulch Away

Mulching adds aesthetic value and a finished look to flower beds. Typically, mulch is available in several colors like black, brown or red. Adding a thick layer of mulch keeps the soil cool and minimizes weed growth. If you notice certain areas getting low, sprinkle some extra mulch to fill in those spots throughout the season.
