Ever since you were a child, you loved sitting outside with your grandmother and helping her plant things and water them every day and it has been a dream of yours to have your own garden but due to your busy schedule, you have never had time but times have changed and you are suddenly finding yourself with a lot of free time on your hands so you decide to build your own garden.
Building or creating your own garden is almost therapeutic in a way for some people because they love nurturing plants and taking care of things so if you are a person who belongs to this category and you have taken up gardening, you are sure to have come across various animals and insects that try to invade and destroy your plants from time to time.
Sometimes, no matter what you do, you will always end up finding such animals on your plants and it can be frustrating sometimes so we have the perfect solutions for you.
The few methods mentioned below will definitely help you keep animals out of your garden.
Separate your crops
One of the easiest ways to avoid having your plants destroyed by animals is by separating your crops by using the right fencing supplies and such so if you are concerned about having your plants eaten by animals, call up a service who is known and has good reviews and even if you live in an isolated area, rural fencing contractors are not hard to find.
Another method would be to not wait for your rural fencing contractors and start building a fence on your own. If you have experience in construction and building things, this will definitely be a cakewalk for you but if not you could ask your husband or a close relative to do this for you.
Elevate your crops
One of the best way to keep small animals such as snails out of your plants is by raising your plants with the use of raised beds. Raised beds can be made easily if you have some prior knowledge about building and handling wood but if you are not experienced in this field, just ask your husband or a neighbor to help you out and they will gladly lend you a helping hand.
Mulch your plants
Another method would be to buy a lot of mulch and lay them amongst the plants as they not only helps to keep the animals out of the plants but they also regulate soil temperature and prevent the growth of various wild weeds. If you cannot find any mulch, substitutes such as straw, dried evergreen needles a wood bark could be used in replacement.
