Do you love the look and smell of gardens, but are concerned about allergies? There is no need to limit your yard to stones and concrete, if you or any family members suffer from allergies.
There are many plants that are free from pollen and other allergens, which you can include in your garden.
With just a little planning and information, even those with the most stubborn sneezes and sniffles can enjoy the wholesome benefits of gardening. Here are a few useful gardening strategies for allergy sufferers:
Avoid plants that attract mildew or aphids
Plants that are grown in the wrong place fail to thrive and may attract insects or mildew. Consequently, bug-infected, mildewed plants produce moulds and other allergenic spore. Try to avoid plants that tend to attract mildew and set about finding the right spot for plant growth.
Avoid plants that rely on breezes
If you have airborne allergies, un-incidental contact with pollen creates unwanted allergic reactions such as watery eyes, itching, sneezes, etc. If you avoid plants that completely rely on breezes to transport pollen, it can help you to alleviate allergic reactions.
If you have great difficulty in devising an allergy-free garden, you can hire gardeners or landscapers, who have a better knowledge about allergy-free gardening. In this way, you can reap the benefits of a garden without falling victim to allergies.
