Another way to add to your earnings is to cultivate plants in your yard and market them in garden fairs or utilize them on landscaping activities. Contingent on the place where your garden is situated, and the local weather, you have a choice of whether you would cultivate flowering or decorative plants. Too much rain or too much heat coming from the sunlight is not good for plants. You must have a garden shelter to decrease rain and sunshine without increasing your expenses.
Substitute for a Greenhouse
Making a glasshouse is the best resolution to this. But this is not a realistic solution to many beginners. The other solution is to erect a garden cover with netting. This may not be as effective as a greenhouse, but it can reduce rain and sunlight to make it just enough for the plants to grow.
The following are the uses of the netting shelter:
Diminish sunlight and screen away the rain – Some plants are partial to damp conditions instead of a heated one. To prevent it from being exposed directly to sunlight, the netting shelter will allow the right amount of shade for plants to develop. It allows enough sunlight for the plants to perform photosynthesis. The netting also serves as a protection when there is heavy rain. When the netting is set up, the direct rain is arrested by the netting and only small droplets eventually hit the plants. An adequate period is then allowed for the plant to soak up water.
Cover from falling leaves and debris – another benefit given by the netting is to trap the leaves that are falling in the garden. Usually, gardens will have trees around and these trees have leaves that will eventually fall. When these leaves are not caught, they land on the plants where they are exposed to rain and sunlight. Later on these leaves will rot and there is a big possibility that they destroy the plants if not attract harmful organisms to the healthy plants. Another benefit is the cover from falling branches. Coconuts are aplenty in tropical countries and the coconut frequently falls down and this is a possible cause of plant death if not trapped by the netting. This holds true not only for the coconuts but for large trees as well. Without the netting, heavy and broken branches can flatten your plants. In the presence of a netting, the fallen branches are trapped away from your plants.
First timers of gradening do not have to spend on big greenhouses. Due to the benefits mentioned above, a garden cover provided with netting can be just as effective as a greenhouse. The netting can function as a cover against too much sunlight and too much rain while catching falling leaves and heavy branches from the plants.
