The official start of spring is just around the corner! Homeowners can begin tending to their gardens once again as the weather warms up. Below are some tips that can help keep your garden pest-free all season long.
Grow Plants That Repel Pests
It turns out that pests are sensitive to smells just as we are! With that knowledge, be sure to grow plants in your garden that emit strong odors. Planting basil and oregano near tomatoes is a great way to naturally fend off any unwanted critters.
Put The Sprinklers On
There are sprinklers that go off automatically whenever motion is detected. This can help scare off any pests that do not like water. Now you know that sprinklers can water the lawn and deter squirrels from encroaching on your property!
Install A Fence Around Your Garden
When your garden is being overrun by pests, you may want to install a fence around it. After all, it will be impossible for pests to rummage through your garden if they can’t even get in! Your garden will be less vulnerable to pest intrusions when there is a fence surrounding its perimeter.
