Enjoy the Garden and Outdoors Without Allergic Reactions with These Tips
Get outdoors and enjoy the flower garden and vegetable garden without allergic reactions with these tips.
Allergies got you watching spring and summer go by through the protective panes of house windows and paying high dollar amounts for fresh flowers and produce someone else is growing? Get outdoors and enjoy the flower garden and vegetable garden without allergic reactions with these tips.
Wear A Mask
Certain gardening activities are guaranteed to stir up allergens like pollen and mold. Wear a microfiber mask whenever you dig around in the soil, rake leaves or mow the lawn. Discard used masks into an outdoors trash receptacle to avoid bringing allergens in the house and don a new one each time you go outdoors. When wearing a re-usable mask, remove the mask and place it inside a plastic bag until laundering it to prevent the allergens falling off the mask indoors.
Change Your Clothes
Keep a designated set of outer clothing that is only worn when outside and remove these clothing articles outside after gardening. The pollen and other allergens you encountered while outdoors will be trying to hitch a ride indoors on these clothing articles. Wash them before wearing again and shower immediately after coming inside. Wash hands frequently when outdoors working in the gardening or around the yard if not wearing gloves, and if wearing gloves, keep pollen laden gloves away from face and hair.
Take A Pill
Take an antihistamine 30 minutes prior to going outside to garden or do other types of yard work. Cromolyn sodium nasal sprays, like Nasalcom, help combat allergy symptoms like watery eyes, running nose and sneezing, but are not quite as symptom squelching as an antihistamine.
Keep Grass Cut Short
During the spring growing season, grass sprouts pollen producing flowers. Keep grass cut short during the spring to limit pollen created by grass flower heads. When possible, plant non-pollinating ground covers, like ivy and myrtle, instead of grass. Ground covers prevent pollen and are easier to maintain.
Update Garden and Landscape
Take inventory of spring blooming plants that produce the most pollen in your landscape and consider replacing them. Giving your garden and landscape an update with flowers, trees and shrubs that produce less offending pollen will allow you to enjoy your garden more frequently with less allergic reactions.
Updating and re-planting your landscape and garden with lower pollen producers does not mean a dull, bloomless garden. Talk to your local nurseryman about native plants that produce blooms with heavy, waxy pollen that is too heavy for the wind to carry. Apple trees, cherry trees and azaleas are three showy spring bloomers that contribute very little;e to the pollen count.
