5. Don’t let weeds take over: Weeds can get out of control very quickly. They seem to double and triple overnight if you’re not staying on top of them. With warmer temperatures and higher humidity, the weeds are going to be out in full force. If you can, prepare the area beforehand to prevent weeds. You can use something like a landscape fabric that can be laid down before you start planting. Holes can be cut for whatever plants you have in the garden, but the rest of the surface will be covered. This prevents weeds from getting through the soil, but the fabric allows your plants to get the water, nutrients, and sunlight to grow. Mulch is another excellent weed deterrent!
