The effort and knowledge you put into your garden shows in the results, particularly when you are working with organic material. It demonstrates that you want your plants to be healthy and thriving. This is something that is admirable. With anything else you can always improve. Some advice that will be of use to you follows.
You will need to properly lay sod. Make sure you prepare your soil before you lay any sod down. Thoroughly weed the soil, and work it into a fine, smooth tilth. Lightly, but firmly pack the soil down, and make sure that it is flat. You then will want to thoroughly wet the soil. The optimum layout of sod rows is to stagger them with offset joints. After the sod is in place, go over the surface to ensure everything is level. Use loose soil to fill in any gaps between seams. Sod must be watered every day for about two weeks, and then it will have rooted and be completely ready to be walked on.
Do not spend your money on chemicals to fight mildew. Mix a solution of baking soda, water, and a tiny bit of dishwashing liquid. Then, spray this mixture onto all of your infected plants once each week till the mildew is gone. Baking soda will bring no damage to your plants, and will treat the mildew in a gentle and efficient manner.
Before you even start planting the garden, check the soil. Have a soil analysis completed so you can know what you need to add to have soil which will fully support your garden. A Cooperative Extension office can provide you with this service, saving you learning on your own by trial and error.
Pull all the weeds in your garden. Weeds can truly ruin a good garden. To aid in this venture, you might want to use white vinegar. White vinegar is a weed killer! A spray solution is much easier to apply than to rid your garden of weeds by hand.
As you cut your grass, do not trim it too low to the ground. If you leave some of the grass when you mow, the roots grow further into the ground, which makes the grass less prone to drying and other hazards. Short grass on the other hand is more susceptible to drying out.
Make a plan for your garden. Doing so means you can remember where each particular plant is when you start seeing sprouts arise from the earth. This is important, because different plants require different care.
