She Sticks Forks in Her Garden for a Truly Genius Reason!

Gardening can be a therapeutic way to relieve stress, achieve some quality alone time, and bask in the beauty of nature. A backyard garden can add character and beauty to your home, while you reap the benefits of your hard work with natural and delicious foods and herbs to enjoy.
There are gardening enthusiasts, and there are those who don’t exactly have a green thumb, but they would love to see a garden in their yard. If you identify with the latter, but you shy away from gardening from fear that your plants might not grow healthy and strong, these tips and tricks were made for you! Use these clever gardening hacks to ensure a beautiful and successful garden.

1. Use a muffin tin as a planting guide.

A muffin tin may be meant for baking, but in your garden, it can be used to create a perfect grid to guide you when planting your seeds. You’ll know exactly where to put them and how to space them out!

2. Use glass bottles to form a path.

If you have kids who love to play outside, use glass bottles to let them know where to step. Form a path using the bottles to make sure your garden doesn’t get trampled!

3. Create garden markers using a hammer and some old spoons.

Carefully flatten some old metal spoons with a hammer, then grab some colorful paint and get creative!
Don’t they make the coolest garden markers? If you don’t have any old silverware lying around, plastic spoons work too! Next time you get takeout, save the spoons to use in your garden.

4. Keep your plants hydrated using old bottles.

What to do with an empty wine bottle? If you’re worried that your plants aren’t getting enough water, fill an old bottle with water and place it upside down in your plant!

5. Use plastic forks to fortify your garden.

If you have unwelcome visitors in your garden chewing on your plants, stick forks in your garden — pronged side up — to keep invaders out!
