No Time to Garden? Try These Time-Saving Tips

Erin Andrews

June 1, 2016

While many of us appreciate the glory of a beautiful garden, there’s no denying that having one is a time-consuming endeavor. That’s why we’ve compiled these tips to help you make the most of your yard in less time:

1. Start with a plan.
A well-thought-out plan for your garden that utilizes low-maintenance plants and flowers will save you time throughout the season. You can even map out what you are going to plant while you’re watching Netflix!

2. Take out weeds with ease.
When low-growing weeds grow into a mat, don’t spend time taking them out one at a time. Instead, use a sharp spade to slice beneath them and turn them over to bury the leaves, which will decompose, enriching your soil.

3. Water without wasting time.
Don’t spend time filling a watering can—use soaker hoses instead! Set the pressure on low to slowly irrigate sections of your garden while you do something else.

4. Garden-on-the-go.
Make every minute you are outside of your home count! Use the time when you let your dog out or your kids are waiting for the bus to pull a few weeds or dead-head flowers. This will cut what could be a long weeding and maintenance session on the weekend into more manageable mini-sessions throughout the week.

Whether you have a green thumb or not, use these tips and you’ll have more time to enjoy a beautiful yard—and the other things you like to do.
