GARDEN MAINTENANCE COURSE
Learn how to professional and effectively maintain a garden while reducing the amount of time, labour and costs involved.
Proper garden maintenance will cost you both time and money and as professional gardener you need to reduce costs without reducing the quality of care you give to your client's gardens. There are ways in which you can do this - knowledge is the key to any profession including gardening where you and often your competition may not know as much as you should.
We usually think of garden maintenance as a spring and summer priority when lawns, weeds and plants grow vigorously but even in fall and winter a garden may deteriorate without regular maintenance.
Plants that are fed well are healthier, resist disease and pest problems, and generally require less maintenance. If a plant is unhealthy, it may be because of a lack of good nutrition, but it can just as easily be because of something else. Healthy plants resist pest and disease problems.
Heat, cold, wind, rain, frost, shade, pollution and other environmental problems can have disastrous effects on plants. Plant varieties vary in their tolerance of these conditions, for example the heat which might kill one plant may simply slow the growth of another. Some plants are very adaptable others not.
This course will show you how to create healthy gardens year round!
