Learn the proper way to lay sod. Before you lay the sod, the soil has to be prepared. Do some weeding if necessary, then break the soil until it is no longer packed. Compact the soil lightly and firmly, and be sure to create a flat surface. Dampen the soil completely. When laying down sod, create staggered rows with offset joints. Firm the sod down to form a flat, even surface, and fill in any gaps between the sod with a little soil. You will have to water the sod every day for 2 weeks, and then it should be firmly rooted to the ground, and able to be walked on.
Try using climber plants to cover up your fences and walls. Climbing plants are known to be very versatile, and can help hide any ugly wall or fence, and this often only takes one growing season. Climbers can also be trained to grow and cover an arbor, and they will grow through or around existing trees and shrubs. Some may need to be attached to a support, and others will attach themselves to any surface using their twining stems or tendrils. Reliable varieties include wisteria, honeysuckle, climbing roses, clematis, and jasmine.
Plant a little catnip or wheatgrass in the area surrounding the plants that your cat is devouring. Another option is to place something smelly, like citrus peels or mothballs, on the soil surrounding the plants that have previously been eaten.
Try and maintain daily aerated and dried plants. Moisture on the surface of a plant can attract parasites, and cause disease. A common parasite to plants is fungi. Proactively treat fungi through the use of fungicidal sprays and treatments.
Mint leaves are wonderful, but don’t you despise how quickly they can take over a garden due to rapid growth?

You can even plant the entire pot so that it still looks just like another plant in your garden.
