Take the time to research the variety of all-natural methods that can hep your organic garden flourish. Before tackling such a project, it is important to be prepared.
Cover fences and walls with climbing plants. Climbing plants can cover a wall after one growing season only. You don’t have to worry about removing trees between the climbing plants and the fence, because the trees don’t present obstacles to the climbers’ growth. Some people use climbers as a natural “ceiling” to arbors. Some varieties of these plants will have to be tethered to some sort of support, but other varieties will be able to attach to the medium they are climbing. Wisteria, jasmine, honeysuckle, clematis and some rose varieties are good choices for climbers.
To get the best results, you must use the right soil. Fertilizer can enrich the soil to make it more viable. You could also isolate a certain area, and fill it with just one kind of soil.

White vinegar is natural, very inexpensive, and can really kill the weeds! Try spraying some white vinegar in water when you are pulling weeds from your garden.
