Weeds, insects, wildlife, high winds, poor soil, and freezing conditions round out a never-ending list of threats to plants and trees. It's not easy being green, and they're going to need all the help they can get. That's where you come into play. Even if you're new to the green thumb game, we have the tools and accessories to increase the effectiveness of your efforts.
Test the Soil Before You Plant
Use a soil meter to determine your soil's pH level and moisture content. Soil pH level is measured from 1 to 14, 1 being overwhelmingly acidic and 14 being undeniably sweet. Most plants prefer a pH level of approximately 6 to 7. Knowing the pH level helps you select the right plants, and if you're unhappy with the results, you can always intervene with soil-enhancing solutions and then gauge the results.
Grow Better with Modern Science
As a general rule, there's always one more advantage you can use in lawn and garden maintenance. Choose from all-purpose organic fertilizer made from earthworm castings, flower-strengthening solutions with natural ingredients, yield-increasing fruit and nut tree fertilizers, and wilt-stopping plant protectors. Cure inhospitable patches of lawn with nitrogen and iron boosts.
Rising Above the Weeds
Weeds are the bane of every perfectionist's existence. They'll always exist in one form or another, but there are things you can do to reduce their numbers and lessen their impact. Lay polypropylene fleece between soil and mulch. This layer controls weeds without chemicals and improves moisture and oxygen retention. Greet lawn weeds with the big guns. Our weed-killing solutions go to work overnight, prevent future weed growth, and won't harm surrounding grass.
Cover-Up During Winter
Protect small trees, shrubs, and plants from frost and inclement weather with a breathable fabric hood or cover. They're designed to trap heat and repel pests during the winter months. Though some plants are more resilient than others, it's always better to safeguard your time invested than lose a favorite member of the backyard.
Cleaning Up & Working Smarter
Most of the products you'll find are greenery focused, but there are helpful finds for caretakers, too. Lay a fabric pruning or hedge sheet down before you start working to keep your clothes relatively spotless and simplify cleanup. Take the burden out of collecting leaves with upright polypropylene leaf containers and time-saving grabbers. Know exactly when your indoor plants need water with Hydrofarm Thirsty Lights.
