4 Ways to Keep Plants Alive At Home

As the temperatures begin to rise, the plants on your landscape should be starting to bloom once more, and begin to show come color! But what many homeowners aren’t usually aware of is the maintenance that’s typically due when it comes to your foliage and shrubbery in the spring. Before the heat begins to hit, it’s important to understand when and how much care to put into your plants to keep them alive all season. Here are four surefire ways to keep them blooming all year!

Adding Rich Soil

After the winter, it’s important to make sure that your plants get the nutrients that they need to survive and prosper. If you’re changing their location or just performing some maintenance, consider adding a bit of nutrient rich soil in the areas in which you’ll be watering, so that they can benefit from them!

Keep An Eye On Bugs

Bugs can be your worst enemy when it comes to plants, if they’re not pollinating them. Make sure you’re checking on the status of these plants every few days for an abundance of bugs in the area, and if so, eliminate them with a safe spray or repellent to keep them from killing the plant. This will help them avoid diseases and potential damage to critical areas

Water Effectively

Your plants are likely thirsty after a dry and cold winter, but that doesn’t mean they want to go swimming. If they’re in an area where the sun is beating on them each day, it’s important to keep them hydrated so that the plant doesn’t burn up and dry out. Ideally, you’ll want to dampen the soil area underneath wet and avoid getting water all over the foliage.

Call A Landscaper

It’s important to understand that if you don’t have the necessary time to tend to all of your plants, a landscaper can have this done in no time!
