We all know that one of the most disgusting things that can happen in gardening is to deal with garden pests. Sometimes, we are always guarding every petal of our flowering plants just to make sure that they will be safe from attacks. Too often, we fail on this and we just see out plants having holes made by these pests. Slugs, worms, caterpillars, snails, are some pests that we have to deal with. Though we can not make our garden to be totally pest-free, still, it is better that you do something to even just minimize their damage.

Another pest problem, aside from insects, are birds. Sometimes, I found myself chasing them away but then, they are still returning. One thing you can do to deal with birds is to put a bird feeder somewhere in your garden to divert their attention from destroying your garden because they eat what is in the bird feeder instead. Not only can bird feeders keep birds outside your garden but they can also add attraction.
