Spring is here - Plan Your Garden With These Tips - Stop by and choose your new home at Habersham at Fort Mill

Spring is here, the sun is shining, birds are singing and it's time for your garden to come back from the long winter. There are many things you can do to get your garden back in shape for the beautiful spring and summer flowers. First things first, clean out the garden. Remove all debris such as leaves and pull out the weeds by the roots so that they don't come back. Next it is important to revitalize the soil! You can add moisture to your dried out soil by adding organic material like compost or manure. Not sure what the soil might need? You can test the soil for PH, Nitrogen and other chemicals with a handy soil test kit from your local home improvement or hardware store. You also may need to add fertilizer especially where you might need to increase the richness of the dirt. Not only might you need fertilizer, but adding mulch to your flowerbeds and gardens is a good idea. One to three inches of mulch helps to prevent weeds and diseases. It also keeps the moisture in the garden and maintains the temperature. The rule of thumb is to keep the mulch a few inches from the plant stems to prevent roots from rotting. If your plants survived the winter, you may need to prune them back to allow them to spread out and grow back strongly. Don't forget to sharpen any of your yard tools that might need sharpening to make your project go much easier. Wait until after the last freeze when the weather has warmed up for good. http://www.marketingresultsatlant
