Sod should be laid properly. The soil requires preparation before sod can be laid. Weed the soil well, and till the entire lawn area. Flatten your soil and make it slightly compact. Gently sprinkle water on the soil until you are certain that it is thoroughly moistened. Avoid laying your sod in straight rows with all of the seams lining up. Instead, stagger the rows for a more pleasing visual effect. Firm sod until there is an even, flat surface; fill in gaps with soil. Once it is in place, the sod requires frequent watering for at least two weeks. This is usually the amount of time it takes for the sod to grow roots, making it ready to grow seamlessly into place.
Digging in hard clay soil is made even more difficult because it sticks to the shovel. Coat the shovel with floor or car wax, and buff it with a clean rag to make the job a lot easier. This will make your task easier because the clay won’t stick to the shovel. It will also keep your garden tool from rusting.
Think about starting plants in pots, and then placing the seedlings in the garden later. This will help the plants make it to full growth. This will also allow you to stick to a tighter, cleaner planting schedule. You will have healthy seedlings that are ready to be planted when you get rid of old plants.
Cover any wall or fence with climbers. You can hide an unsightly wall or fence, in as little as one growing season, with the right selection of climbing plant. You can also use them in your landscape to cover an existing arbor, or allow them to climb up trees, or through shrubs. Some varieties of these plants will have to be tethered to some sort of support, but other varieties will be able to attach to the medium they are climbing. Wisteria, jasmine, honeysuckle, clematis and some rose varieties are good choices for climbers.
You may be able to re-pot some plants to bring indoors for the winter. Perhaps you can save your most expensive or resistant plants. Cautiously avoid the roots while digging, and put your plant into a perfectly sized pot.
For showy flowers throughout the spring and summer, plant plenty of bulbs. A hardy perennial addition to your garden, bulbs will continue to delight every year. You can select bulbs that bloom at many different times, so with a little work, you could have flowers popping up all the way from the start of spring to the end of summer.
