PowerX is a company dedicated to serving and protecting homes, yards, and community properties throughout South Florida. With their extensive South Florida pest library and years of experience, they have a few tips on how to make spring gardening a snap.
Tip #1: Clay pots are essential to every garden; unfortunately, they have a tendency to form salt deposits that can severely damage plants. A good way to get rid of this stubborn problem is to use a vinegar, rubbing alcohol, and water solution. Combine the ingredients in a spray bottle and use a plastic brush to scrub off the deposits.
Tip #2: It is no secret working in the garden is a dirty job. Dirt underneath the fingernails can be very annoying and hard to get fully clean. One-way to avoid this issue altogether; before gardening, drag fingernails across a bar of soap. The accumulated soap will effectively seal the fingernails, thus preventing dirt from getting underneath.
Tip #3: String trimmers are one of the best inventions for a gardener. However, the lines can sometimes jam or snap. To keep this from happening, spray vegetable oil over the lines before installing.
Tip #4: An interesting hack, take a long-handled tool and lay it on the ground next to a measuring tape. Using a permanent marker, write inch and foot marks on the handle. Now spacing plants is a quick, easy process.
Tip #5: Another great hack, take garden twine and put the ball in a small clay pot. Pull the end of the twine through the hole, and leave the pot upside down. Now isn’t that a handy and simple way to ensure there is always twine available?
