Gardening Mistakes

1. Fill a large container which is already position in wrong placeThen you’ll have to lift and move it which could be dangerous for your back or you’ll have to unload it, move and the fill it again which will double your work. So, before filling some container check out does its position is properly planned.

2. Choose wrong toolsUsing unsuitable or old tools such as a dull shovel will make some of your gardening tasks almost impossible to be done. So, before beginning your gardening work you should be equipped with properly gardening tools.

3. Using too few toolsYou can finish all of the gardening tasks using your hands and a shovel, but will you feel comfortable this way? You can buy a lot of contemporary gardening tools that will make your gardening work easier. For example, if you buy a garden cart could help you to carry most of your tool through the garden and will prevent the risk of their lost.

4. To have unrealistic expectationsIf you’re new to the gardening work do not expect after few months a photo of your garden to be published on a magazine’s cover. The best you can do when you start with the gardening is to try to keep your flowers and plants alive.

5. Spend too much time at the gardenDon’t forget that gardening is just a hobby and you don’t need to spend all your spare time there. For example, if you travel during summer you can purchase a self-watering containers or other tool that will provide water to your flowers while you’re not in the garden.
