5 Gardening Tips That Will Improve Any Outdoor Space





From picking the right flowers to decorating your garden shed, here's everything you need to know to create a beautiful backyard.

1. Pick Perennials That Will Bloom Multiple Times Throughout Summer

Climbing rose and woodland sage are just some of several perennials that will bloom multiple times throughout the summer months.

2. Strengthen Seedlings

When starting seedlings in flats, add a little fertilizer to their water when the plants begin to appear. This will strengthen them and fortify them from transplanting.

3. Save Your Small Plastic Yogurt Containers

Cut the bottoms of your leftover yogurt containers—they're perfect for protecting seedlings from spring weather.

4. Make a Leaf Mold

If you have a working fireplace, mix the ashes with clean, dry leaves and let the leaves decompose. You will have an excellent leaf mold.

5. Deepen Soil Color

What to do with that pile of soot from cleaning your furnace pipes or chimney? Blend it into the soil around roses and lilies and it will deepen their color.
