7 Garden Challenges That Put You Off Your Yard

A  house with a garden is the dream of all first-time buyers. However, it’s a dream that can rapidly turn into a nightmare.

You imagined how exciting it would be to invite friends to a garden party in the summer. A cozy wooden table and some benches out together. In the background, fragrant and colorful flowers dance in the light evening breeze.

You had plans of growing your own vegetables for the first time. Tomatoes. Salads. Zucchini. And in winter you could eat pumpkins, squashes, and beetroots from the garden.

You even wanted to keep fish in a pond.

Except that all your dreams failed to turn true when you finally bought the house. On the contrary, they took a turn for the worse and now you avoid the garden at all costs. Nothing is as you imagined. Instead of feeling welcoming and convivial, the garden could be the set for a horror movie. The fishless pond is greener than ever. There’s barely any sun shining on the lawn. And your precious tomatoes have become a cozy wildlife home for caterpillars, slugs, and ants. You’re longing for a gardenless, urban apartment. What went wrong?

If this tale of horror sounds familiar, you probably struggle with your garden challenges. Don’t give up just now. With some tweakings, you can still create a green haven out of your unloved yard!
