If you decide to break new beds at the site, once designated under the lawn or do the design and build a few more beds, you have a lot of work, which, among other things, also help get rid of the hated calories.All operations of land preparation should begin in February, when the snow melts.

Grinding tillers of the soil make the soil soft, it will help to make such gryadochki who themselves lured by seeds and seedlings.But all this shaking, mixing, loosening the earth also allows weed seeds to germinate, and the oxygen saturation of the land as overly excites the appetite in the ground of microorganisms that use valuable organic matter.Can you imagine the effect of tillage on earthworms.

Grinding soil tillers

Processing tillers - a great way to prepare the ground in the spring, the main thing - do not overdo it.If povoroshit land perekopochnymi pitchforks, then you will create the perfect environment for the growth of different cultures.And once you start practicing a certain portion of his beloved garden, then at the s

ame time you can add a little more compost and shale, so you do not have to hold to here again.It is not necessary to handle clay soil tillers, as it is this time of year was still wet, and you have something sticky with big lumps.

Weeds should disappear

Weeds rob your garden plants, they steal their water and nutrients, and sometimes even the sunlight.There are other ways to control weeds than digging up the entire area, and tillage in different mixtures.

Weeds should disappear

If weeds are not so many, you can remove them manually by pulling the top of the weed, and then pull the entire plant out of the ground with the roots.In order to completely remove, long taproot, such as dandelion, slide the shovel or garden savok into the ground at a right angle near the plant, then lift the root of garden tools, such as a lever, it is desirable to pull the plant itself.

However, poodinochnoe pulling weeds can be a very debilitating occupation, if a piece of land covered with impenetrable thickets of climbing weeds.They can figure out carefully and patiently passing over the site, holding a keenly sharpened chopper and garden shovel on a long handle.If weeds are too firmly seated in the ground, you can use the shovel, and the need to keep it parallel to the ground, cutting a couple of centimeters higher ground.The aim is to cut enough of the earth with the roots of the weeds to the latter has had no chance.

Plan feeding

next thing is vital ground in your garden - a dressing.If in your garden you are growing only flowers, and all the plants look very healthy last year, may now not need any fertilizer.But if you collect every year a rich harvest of vegetables, thereby removing from the earth all the nutrients to provide the same level of harvest and this year will need to add fertilizer to the ground.

fertilizing plants in spring

Plants are essential nutrients - it is possible to bring half a liter of solution of organic fertilizers or synthetic fertilizers to spray for every 3m2 of cultivated land.

Even if all of your plants last year looked pretty healthy, every few years is to take samples of the earth, to know exactly what is in the land of enough nutrients and additives.Such verification is best done in late February, in stores now you can find kits for measurement.


conclude land preparation stage is to apply a layer of compost.The compost will feed your plants, protect the earth's surface from the sun and rain erosion and to protect from moisture.

One caveat in the preparation of the land: try not to walk on the clay - this time it is still very wet, and stepped on it, you'll just ram it.

If you decide to grow vegetables, between the beds immediately make a pass.The garden is completely dedicated to flowers, or if your garden will be mixed planted flowers and vegetables, a great idea would be to place on his way small stones, which will provide not only a stylish design, but also durable, dry island land amid lush growing plants.
