When you have made the effort to create a lovely home garden, you’re going to want to pull out all the stops to ensure it looks as good as possible throughout the year. For the most part, this means you’re going to have to work hard to maintain and care for every inch of that garden; after all, gardens are time-consuming pleasures, but they are worth the sacrifice.
However, as wonderful as gardening is, there is no denying that managing a garden can sometimes, well, not provide particularly good returns. Most gardeners are more than happy to dedicate hours to weeding, trimming, tidying, and maintaining, but they do it in the expectation that their outdoor space will bloom with natural beauty, and provide a stunning vista--an Eden all of their own. This is the exchange, of course: you do the work, then you reap the wonderful rewards.
Unfortunately, though, that's not always the case. Poor weather, poor soil and poor quality plants can all be reasons for a garden that fails to deliver. However, there's other gardening mistakes you'll want to avoid.
