If you don’t have all the time in the world to devote to tending your garden, these 3 simple DIY projects are perfect for you.

Choose Your Plants for the Year

Are you the type of gardener who uses the same type of flowers year after year? Or, are you the adventurous type and like to try out different native plants each year? No matter your preference, you can visit your local greenhouse or gardening center to browse their vast selection of options.

You could also choose a new plant to try! Be sure to consult a local gardening specialist to ensure that your plant will tolerate the Middle Tennessee climate.

Clear Out Those Pesky Weeds

While it is not the most thrilling gardening task, it can be the most beneficial. If you’re not careful, weeds can begin to populate your garden, and of course, you don’t want that to happen! It’s a daunting task, but it must be done.

On the bright side, you can make weeding fun! If you have children, make it a game and see who can pick the most amount of weeds in a minute. The person who has successfully plucked the most weeds wins!
