Must Know Plant Maintenance Hacks

At home, there are a number of things that you can do to preserve the wellbeing of your shrubbery and flowers — and most of it is easier than you might think!

Instead of worrying about how you might have to spend countless dollars on brand-name solutions, there are a few things you can whip up at home to keep the pests away from your plants and sensitive flowers.

Below we’ve outlined a few simple hacks to help that process and keep your landscape looking as good as ever!



If you’ve got critters or bugs that seem to love to eat your greens, creating a spray is a great way to deter them! Mixing water and peppermint oil or ground hot peppers is an effective way to do so. Simply spray this mixture on the affected areas and you’re safe from bugs as they’ll certainly begin to stay away.

Defense Barriers

Another great way to utilize spices at home is to create a barrier between their path and the actual plant. Creating a line with spices around the plant ensures that whatever’s been walking up to it (whether it be ants, spiders or slugs) can’t get to your goods.

Professional Landscaping

While there are things you can end up doing yourself, the truth is that you might not have all the time you’d like to dedicate toward these efforts. If this is true, it might be a good idea to have someone who is professionally trained in the process of preserving plants and landscapes within their region.
