Simple DIY Projects To Get A Thriving Garden!

Weekends provide the perfect opportunity to get your hands dirty and start growing. If you want to cultivate a thriving herb and vegetable garden, here are three simple DIY garden projects you can try.

Replenish Your Mulch

Mulching is an essential component of maintaining the health of your garden soil. Mulch helps to retain moisture in the soil, reduce weed growth, and improve soil fertility. Give your garden the much-needed boost it deserves with a layer of fresh mulch.

How to apply:

Spread a 3-4 inch layer of mulch around the base of your plants, ensuring not to cover the stems of the plants. Water the garden after applying the mulch to settle it down. This simple DIY project will help keep your garden healthy throughout the growing season.
