Clear Away Debris

If you already have an existing garden, you probably spread leaves over the ground to protect the soil during the winter. Before you start any work, it’s a good idea to clear away any old leaves or tarps that you may have used to provide the soil with as much added warmth as possible. It’s a good idea to do this as soon as possible instead of waiting for the weather to become completely warm. You never know when your spring bulbs or other perennials may decide to spring from the ground. Once you’ve raked up all the leaves, you should have a clear plot of dirt that you can turn into a beautiful garden.

Start Seeds Indoors

Starting your seeds indoors can provide you with many benefits. Many gardeners choose to go to nurseries and buy seedlings, which can cost a lot of money depending on how many plants you plan on buying. By starting your seeds indoors, not only can you put your green thumb to good use while the temperatures outside are still cold, but you also provide yourself with a leg up on the growing season. Instead of buying seedlings at a nursery or waiting weeks for your seeds to sprout outside, you’ll have plenty of home-grown seedlings to plant once the weather is warm and your garden is ready.

Start A Compost Pile

Compost is a great way to provide your soil with extra nutrients. This part of the process can be started as early as you want. Not only will you be helping the environment, but you’ll also be providing your plants with extra nutrients that can help them grow bigger and better than ever! Not to mention, you’ll save the few bucks you would spend on buying a bag of manufactured fertilizer.

Prep Your Tools

Every artist needs the right tools, and a gardener is no exception. Supply yourself with all the shovels, clippers, and pruning shears you will need to get the job done. Once you gather your tools, check the sharpness. Dull blades will only make the work more tedious and excruciating, therefore it’s important that all of your tools are sharp and working properly.

Prepare The Soil

Every gardener knows that you can’t plant your seeds or seedlings until the soil is ready. At this point, you’ve already cleared away any leaves or debris that accumulated over the winter. While you may think that cleared soil is ready for plants, you would be wrong. The next step is to till the soil. This process is done in order to mix up the nutrients and bring moist, nutrient-rich soil to the surface. When you make a cake, you wouldn’t add all the ingredients to the bowl and put it in the oven without mixing it first. The same goes for the soil in your garden. It’s important to mix up the soil in order to give your plants all the nutrients they need.

Previously, this step in the process may have required hours of laborious work. Luckily, with the Drill Till™, all you have to do is attach the rod and tiller attachment to your standard electric drill. Once you engage the power, the tiller attachment will till the soil without any strenuous work on your part. Gone are the days of aches and pains from hours spent in the garden. Whether you are digging holes, tilling the soil, or weeding, the Drill Till™ is a must-have item for your gardener’s tool set. Buy yours today!
