Rain is regarded as a gift for Landscaping hobbyists. Plants with wet weather generally are a match made in heaven. However, too much of a good thing isn’t ideal. Excessive rain on plants may be problematic in the garden. Diseases are spread by bacterial and fungal pathogens that thrive in damp conditions on foliar and root systems. If you live in an area where there is a lot of rain or your garden has just been affected by storms, you may be wondering how to prevent your plants from being soaked during the rainy season.

Here is a guide from Landscaping experts of Renton. Let these Landscaping tips help you in maintaining your plants, even in inclement weather.

1.  Check your water drainage.

Ensure there is enough drainage in your garden to avoid water accumulating in a pool and perhaps drowning surrounding plants. Make sure there is a good drainage system in Landscaping spots that slopes away from the garden and is not obstructed.

2.  Ensure good drainage on potted plants.

Growing plants in containers are just as satisfying as growing them in the ground. Potted plants with inadequate drainage can retain water, which is bad for the plant. Always put loose stones in the bottom of the pot and make sure the soil is not clayey. You will need a non-water-retaining Landscaping mix. If the dirt in the vessel seems damp and green moss is starting to form, there is a drainage issue in your Landscaping.

3.  Cover the area with mulch.

Add a layer of mulch or leaf litter to reduce soil compaction on the surface, which can be exasperated by heavy rain. A permeable mulch can aid by allowing water to percolate down into the soil. If your soil is claggy, add compost in the early fall before the winter rains arrive.

4. Arrange your plants in the best possible way.

If your soil is thick, puncture the sides and bottom of the planting hole before Landscaping, and add crocks and gravel at the bottom to let moisture flow through. Avoid smearing the sides of planting holes on dense soils by digging with a fork and breaking down the edges.

5.  Protect the most vulnerable plants.

If the rain is heavy and continuous, cover young and exposed plants, such as herbs and vegetables, with a waterproof Landscaping covering such as tarpaulin. To guarantee proper drainage away from surrounding plants, ensure the covering is sloped in the right direction.

6. Ensure that your plants are well-cared of.

Slugs are attracted to wet conditions and will feed on both live and dead plants. To get rid of slugs, you can handpick them or put up traps. Slugs can drown in soapy water, be smashed, sprayed with 5 or 10% diluted ammonia, or even lured and killed by pouring fermenting food into a container, according to Landscaping professionals in Renton.
