Your landscape beds are a focal part of your property and enhance its overall curb appeal. But if your landscape beds in Arkansas are looking a little unruly, it may be time to put in some work to get them looking their best. We've compiled a list of three things you should do to keep your landscape beds looking their best. First, you should remove weeds from your landscape beds so that they can't steal nutrients from your plants or drag down the curb appeal of your landscape beds. Next, you should fertilize your plants so they can grow strong and beautiful. Finally, you should treat your plants for insects and diseases to keep anything from damaging their health and vitality.
1. Remove weeds from your landscape beds.
Weeds are pesky little plants that can drag down the curb appeal of your landscape beds. Not only do they look unattractive, but they also steal vital nutrients and resources from your plants. It's best to remove the weeds from your landscape beds so your plants get all the nutrients they need to grow strong and gorgeous.
There are a couple of ways to get rid of weeds. You can pull the weeds out of the ground by hand, but you need to make sure you get the entire plant, including the root, or you risk the weeds growing back. You can also treat your landscape beds with both pre-emergent and post-emergent weed control treatments. Pre-emergent weed control will keep newly germinated weeds from sprouting through the soil while post-emergent treatments will kill any that have already sprouted.
2. Fertilize the plants in your landscape beds.
Another way for you to keep your landscape beds looking their best is to fertilize your plants. Fertilizers contain nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, which are key nutrients that promote the strength, growth, and appearance of your plants. With fertilization treatments, your plants will grow brighter, healthier, and stronger as they get vital nutrients from the fertilizer. By strengthening your plants, and providing them with everything they need to grow, not only will your plants look great, but your landscape beds will be more attractive because they'll be filled with healthy plants!
3. Treat the plants in your landscape beds for insects and diseases.
Insect infestations and diseases can really diminish the appearance and health of your plants, so it's important to treat them with preventative and curative treatments to keep them healthy and bright. By applying preventative treatments to your plants, you can help to prevent them from becoming infested with insects or developing any diseases. However, if your plants are suffering from an insect infestation or a lawn disease, it's best to treat the problem as soon as possible with a curative treatment to prevent those issues from spreading. Treating your plants for insects and diseases will help improve the health of your plants, which will help to keep your landscape beds looking their best.
Use pollinator-friendly treatments when treating your plants for insect infestations so good bugs, like butterflies and bees, can keep pollinating your flowers.
