Tips for Getting Your Garden Ready This Spring with Rental Equipment
With temperatures warming up in the San Jose area, it’s time to start getting your garden ready for the planting season ahead. Head to your local San Jose garden tool provider , and follow these tips for preparing a healthy and beautiful backyard garden:
Start Composting Organic, natural, and rich in nutrients, compost is a gardener’s best friend. While you can buy ready-made compost at a home and garden store, making it yourself will allow you to dispose of discarded food and yard waste without filling up your trash bins. Simply set up an old barrel or trash can in a flat area, poke some holes in it for ventilation, and install some fencing to keep critters away. You’ll have an eco-friendly way to dispose of organic waste, and a highly effective fertilizer when it comes time to plant your seedlings.
Get Your Tools Ready Before you can do any actual gardening, you will need to get the tools. Set up a work area in your garage or shed and gather up your garden tools . Using an abrasive pad, clean off any rust or corrosion that may have built up over the past months. You may also want to put a coat of light oil on metal parts to protect them from rust and keep them sharp. Finally, head to a garden tool rental and sales facility and pick out any tools you’ll need.
Prepare Your Soil When you’re almost ready to start planting, you’ll need to break up and aerate your soil. A garden shovel, hoe, and garden rake will do for smaller plots, but if you’re plotting a large garden, you may need the help of a tiller to do the job. Once your soil is thoroughly tilled, you’re ready for the planting season ahead!
