Tips to Maintain a Garden Around Your Micro Home
Most people who own transportable micro homes don’t want to stay in one place. If that’s the case, it will be hard to keep a garden since you can’t exactly bring the ground with you. Fortunately, there is a way to bring your garden with you. From choosing the right ride on mower for you to a hanging garden, we are here to help. The way to do that is to simply attach your garden to your home. How? Here are a few ways.
You can hang your plant pots using chains. Hang them to your porch ceiling or install a hook in one of the beams.
Exterior Wall Garden
Another option is to install an exterior wall garden. Stick a few rectangle plant pots to your home’s exterior wall and start planting there. Just make sure they don’t fall off. You can nail them in if you want.
The last option you can do is to try having a hydroponic system. This system grows plants in water. Of course, not all plants can survive in hydroponic systems, so you have to choose those that can. This option is a little bit pricey but worth it if you want a nice garden.
The great thing about the above mentioned options is that you don’t need any hardcore maintenance and garden equipment. You no longer have to maintain your zero turn mower because you don’t need to trim a lawn anymore.
However, if you still want to grow an actual lawn around your home, you can also do that. To help you out, here are a few tips to take care of your zero turn mower:
Unclog the Air Filter
The air filter often gets clogged by dirt from your lawn. In the long term, this can actually ruin the machine. This is why you have to check it from time to time to see if it’s clogged.
Clean the Deck Properly
The deck is a really important part of the mower since this is where the debris and leaves go to. If you leave them there to build up, the machine might be damaged. Clean it from time to time to keep the machine working.
Keep the Blades Sharp
Lastly, keep the blades sharp, so they can still perform well over time. You can sharpen them around 3 times a year or when you notice that they’re really dull.
