Why Is Caring For My Home Such A Challenge?

Why Is Caring For My Home Such A Challenge?

Our homes are where we spend most of our time. Especially over the past year where we have spent a lot of time in lockdown, working from home, with no one wanting to leave their home for their own safety. But, why has caring for our homes become such a challenge for us?

After spending the past year, you would’ve thought we all would’ve mastered the art of caring for our homes, but this is not the case. If anything, it has made it even more difficult. Our routines become messed up, we are spending more of our time at home completing our work to earn money for our families. This simply means we do not have as much time as we did before to focus on cleaning. It can be hard to switch off from work and focus on cleaning your home.

Sometimes people just simply lack inspiration. Visitors are limited, with most people choosing to not see people in their own homes. Meaning you no longer have the motivation to clean your home. It is a challenge to get back into a new routine where you are motivated to clean your home and make it presentable like it was before.

It is also easy to see that a lot of people have gained unnecessary items over the past year. A lot of people turned to spending to pass time. Some people turned to work from home businesses where they need to hold stock. This means our homes are full of unnecessary items. Making it seem more impossible for us to clean and organise.

Caring for your home doesn’t need to stay a challenge, a small change is all it will take to get back on top of your housework. We will help you in a future post get your home back on track.

Weed Control For Your Garden

Weed Control For Your Garden

Every gardener’s pet hate is having weeds appearing all over their garden where they are truly not wanted! So, today we are going to share with you some of our weed control top tips, helping to keep your garden weed-free!

Keep Soil Disturbance Low
Your garden is bound to be full of weeds that you cannot see. Only a small number of weeds will actually show themself on the surface due to them being able to gain enough sunlight. So, to maintain weed control you want to have a little soil disturbance as possible. Digging out your weeds, not only removes them but gives the weeds below enough sunlight to amplify their growth. Meaning not long after you have finished weeding, you will notice new ones appearing! So instead of digging, use a sharp knife to carefully remove the weeds with little disturbance.

Water The Plants You Want
To avoid extra weed growth, you should only water the plants that you want to see grow. Try to avoid watering the weeds at all costs as this will help to slow down their growth. Helping to keep your garden weed-free for as long as possible.

Chop Off Their Heads
Weeds and plants alike go through a stage where they will release their seeds into the wild. Before this occurs you will want to cut off and dispose of the heads of the weeds. This helps you minimise the amount of weed spread in your garden.

All of these techniques will help you to minimise the amount of weed spread in your garden. Helping you to prevent your garden from becoming overrun with weeds. These simple techniques will help you to combat weed growth in your garden.

Let us know any of your personal top tips for combatting weed growth. Let’s help each other out, and overcome weeds together.
