Envisioning the perfect garden is an easy task, but when you have to create a garden space things become a little bit more difficult. There’s a lot of planning required and you have to have a bit of a green thumb so that your plants thrive and don’t die within a few weeks. Here’s what you need to do:
You need to decide what you want the garden to look like and also decide what plants you want to put in it. Whether you want fruit trees, a vegetable patch or herbs, all of this needs to be thought about before you actually begin the process of gardening. You can even have a blueprint of the garden space and decide which plant goes where in order to maximize the area available for gardening.
You will have to place your plants in an area that gets a good amount of sunlight and also rainwater. Although if it doesn’t get rainwater, it’s not an issue because you can always water the plants yourself or install sprinklers that water the plants systematically during specific times. The key is definitely sunlight; you need a lot of sunlight to ensure that the plants grow to their maximum potential. Without adequate sunlight your garden is bound to be a disaster from the very beginning, so when you are selecting where are you want to plant everything make sure that it’s getting enough direct sunlight.
The more rich and fertile the soil, the better it is for your plants. Fertile soil will help your plants remain healthy and grow strong. If you don’t know where to plant certain trees then you can always hire a professional landscape North Shore to help you out. Having chickens in your garden is also a very effective way to ensure that your soil is more fertile. Because not only do the chickens peck at the soil quite often, resulting in the earth being loosened. But they also fertilize the soil with their droppings. Look for easy ways to fertilize the soil without chemicals. Even throwing old or rotten fruits and veggies into certain areas of the garden will help keep the soil healthy.
Pests are often a major pain. If you don’t control pests, they will likely eat up your whole garden. Especially the vegetables that you may have planted. Be aware of pest that might need to be removed in order to ensure that your plants do not get damaged. There are combinations of plants that can be put together to ensure that pests are kept away. For instance, garlic and lemongrass emit a strong scent that helps keep certain insects away.
This is pretty much all you need to know in order to create the perfect garden space. I promise you that once you have your garden space you will be overjoyed because you will not be able to enjoy what you have created. Sitting or lounging in your garden, watching the birds feed on your fruit trees and watching bees buzz around your flower beds, will give you a lot of happiness.
