1. Pruning: Pruning is an essential part of keeping your plants healthy and growing well. Depending on the type of plant, it should be pruned at least once per season. This will encourage growth and ensure that the shape of your plants stay neat and tidy.
2. Watering: How often you need to water your plants depends on the climate and weather in your area as well as how much rainfall there is, but generally, you should aim to keep soil moist but not soggy. If possible, set up a sprinkler system so that your plants can get regular amounts of water throughout the day rather than just one big watering session every week or so.
3. Weed Control: Weeds can take over any garden if left unchecked so make sure to take action against them regularly. Hand weeding or using herbicides will both work depending on how big your weed problem is - try different methods to find what works best for you!
4. Fertilizing: Different types of plants need different fertilizers, so make sure you read labels carefully before applying anything to your garden beds! Generally speaking, fertilizer should be applied 2-3 times a year for maximum results - use natural fertilizers whenever possible for the best long-term effects on soil health and plant health too!
5. Mulching: Mulching helps conserve moisture in the soil which can lead to healthier roots and bigger yields come harvest time! Mulch also has other benefits such as reducing weeds and controlling soil erosion - just make sure that when adding mulch to a bed that it isn’t placed too close to the stems of any existing plants as this could cause damage or rot them away over time.
By taking care of these essential maintenance tasks throughout the year, you’ll be sure to have a gorgeous garden come springtime!
