Gardening Resolutions for 2021
2021 is right around the corner! With a long pandemic winter ahead, it might be fun to figure out some landscaping projects to do in the spring. Gardening might be on your to-do list once the warmer weather comes in. Here are some gardening resolutions you should take into consideration for spring 2021:
Planting Fruit Trees
Fruit trees look beautiful in your yard and can give you something in return for planting them! These trees can provide you with years of fruits. You can research fruit trees that do well in New England so that you know they will actually thrive with our soil and climate. Fruit trees are known to grow the best in areas that get at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day.
Grow Native Plants
When you add plants that are native to New England to your yard or garden, you will end up spending less money on watering and fertilizing. If you don't want to dig up all of your existing plants, adding just some native species will still give a new look to your yard. Some native plants to New England include Mountain Mint, Wild Senna, and Sundial Lupine.
There are ways to treat your garden that will positively impact the environment as a whole. Instead of using chemical sprays and fertilizers, you should opt for natural alternatives. Creating a compost bin during the winter can help you out in the spring. Fill your bin with banana peels, eggshells, veggie scraps, and more. Compost will help your soil stay healthy, and your plants will thank you!
Growing vegetables can be both fun and rewarding! Planting your own herbs and veggies can decrease your carbon footprint, save you money, and add some color to your landscape. If you want a quick turn around time, consider planting lettuce, carrots, snap peas, radishes, or chives. If you don't have room for a garden in your yard, you can always plant some herbs in plant pots!
Create An Outdoor Living Space
If you don't already have a patio or deck in your backyard, this year might be the best time to get one. With COVID-19, more and more people are entertaining outdoors. Work on planning out a space that's perfect for lounging outdoors so that it will be ready in time for the beautiful spring and summer weather ahead!
