Desert garden prep

by The 100 Companies

Gardeners in the desert southwest take note: With summer on the horizon, temps are about to rise. Keen on keeping your garden looking lush all season long? Follow these tips:

Consider raised beds and organic matter to offset the native sandy soil.

Plan on several inches of mulch as a barrier against moisture loss.

Optimize water-saving measures via drip irrigation and rain barrels.

Choose drought-resistant vegetable seeds to ensure the best outcome.

Utilize companion plantings to shade tender leaves from the scorching sun.

Employing these tips will ensure your garden thrives throughout the dog days of (the desert southwest) summer.
