If you are one-third of the adult population who are experiencing allergy attacks because of seasonal pollen, know that you are not alone. While there are treatment solutions and drugs solutions available for those who have seasonal allergies, there are ways too, to combat your condition and that is by touching up your landscape.
Here are ways you can do that:
Regularly fertilize lawn
Fertilizer will provide important nutrients such as phosphorus, nitrogen and calcium that can encourage the growth of lawn grass. If done on a regular basis, this can control the pollen circulating in your garden.
Plant evergreen trees
Ask your local arborist services Ebbw Vale about the use of evergreen trees. Evergreens have the ability to stay green year-round unlike hardwoods or deciduous trees which shed their leaves yearly. If you have seasonal allergies, having deciduous trees will result in high pollen levels especially when they are shedding their leaves during spring.
Mowing the lawn after it rains
But don’t lawn right after the rain stopped. Wait for a day or two after mowing your lawn. This does not mean that the amount of pollen will be reduced, but it will help control the pollen from increasing.
Remove Leaves and Debris
As debris such as leaves, pine straws and other materials cover your landscape, the allergy-causing pollen will also increase. To avoid this, better remove unwanted debris by regularly raking them away.
Choose the right plants
Aside from choosing evergreen trees, choose plants that are not pollinated by the wind. Daffodils, for instance, are mostly pollinated by bees so it is safe from those who are people suffering from pollen allergies.
