agridea: your trusted partner

for year-round green care

A lush, well-maintained garden not only provides aesthetic beauty but also offers numerous environmental and health benefits. To keep your green space in optimal condition, regular maintenance is essential, encompassing various specific activities based on the season.

Why is regular maintenance important?

Neglecting garden care can lead to several negative consequences:

  • Proliferation of weeds and pests: weeds compete with your plants for water and nutrients, while pests can damage or even kill them.
  • Diseases: plants weakened by a lack of care are more susceptible to diseases.
  • Poor growth and flowering: if your plants don’t receive proper care, they won’t grow and flower to their full potential.
  • Aesthetic decline: a neglected garden is not only unpleasant to look at but can also significantly lower your property value.

  • Irrigation: irrigation is crucial for keeping plants hydrated, especially during dry periods. It’s important to water regularly and deeply, avoiding wetting the leaves.
