Does anyone have advice on the best ways to carry out pruning, weeding and other gardening tasks without disturbing Fairies or causing too much disruption to Nature?

What I've heard is you tend and prune your manicured garden the way you need to, because some plants like roses need to be pruned and weeded so they can grow prettier healthier blooms. One part of your garden stays wild, usually the most Faery looking corner. This would attract them. I'm sure they'd admire your manicured garden too, but wild has natures truest energy in it. So now you have a part where you do your regular gardening, trimming and weeding, then you have your little wilderness garden for the Fae. Or you grow a garden that doesn't need much work, but most of us need to do something, like cutting the grass and edges, clearing walk ways. Nature wants to take over, sometimes tree branches can cause damage to houses. or danger, so it becomes something unavoidable. It's the way we live, do everything with gratitude and a spiritual element, a mindfulness that you are not intending to hurt or offend.

Hi Rush, thanks for your advice! My garden is pretty low maintainance, and a wildlife garden so not too manicured but I do prune fruit trees, roses etc. to keep them healthy and stop them from encroaching on the neighbours. I feel kind of bad about removing wild plants when weeding, but I leave a lot of wild flowers in the borders because they are good for wildlife and I actually prefer a more casual and natural looking garden. If it is more welcoming for Fairies, so much the better! It sounds a really good idea to leave a completely wild corner to grow naturally!

Sounds Faery magical to me, there's always been that difference of a manicured garden and a wild garden. I think people who love nature of the forests tend to leave them a little wild as a way of creating that reflection around them. Weeds and grasses have their purpose, but they are also there on a minimal crisis level. We walk on the grass, play and jump, dig it up for a garden bed, it's living sure, but it's living in a different way to say an old oak, which takes hundreds of years to be tall and dig it's roots deep into the ground, the life force vibration of a weed, grass blades or a rose bush is different. They are all elements of the earth, but the life span is set shorter and it isn't as critical as that of the taller trees who form networks and communicate gathering time and ecological cycles with their existance. When humans start destroying on a large scale, the balance is tipped and that's when damage becomes ireversable. Destroy a forest and the rest dies with it, but for us doing some weeding and trimming, things grow back, the very purpose to help them grow back stronger usually, or to not offend a neighbour and be able to keep the tree instead of having to chop it down in the future.
