Gardening Tips

Prepare Your Garden for Spring Planting

When spring is in the air and the soil is starting to soften up, it is time to start planning and preparing your garden for spring planting. Here are some tips to help you get started:

  1. Use a rototiller to pulverize the soil and leave a soft bed for your future plants. Don’t overdo it though, since too much air will satisfy plant-eating microorganisms in the soil.
  2. Add compost soil and expanded shale to the bed. The compost will provide your plants with nutrients, seal in moisture, and protect the surface from sun and rain.
  3. Clear away weeds, since they will steal light, nutrients, and water from your plants.
  4. If you plant vegetables your garden may require feeding, since you remove nutrients from the soil when harvesting. Nitrogen is the most common nutrient that plants crave, so make sure to taking a soil test every other year to ensure your plants are receiving the proper nutrients.
  5. If you haven’t already done so, create stepping stone walking paths between your planting beds to avoid damaging the soil around them. They will keep your boots dry and look pretty too!
