Simple Gardening Tips
Article by Richard Rowson
Everybody wants a beautiful, luscious, green garden to enjoy at home. Gardens are very relaxing, often inspiring and of course a great place to spend time with friends and family. However many of us lack even the most basic gardening skills and some people have no idea where to start in growing a beautiful garden.
Hopefully this article will give you a few tips and pointers in order to get going and growing!
Firstly it is important to take one step at a time. Gardens can take years to look established and full, so don’t worry about beginning on a small scale or in a small section of your garden. With time, preparation, work and the right plants your garden will begin to take shape over time.
Secondly it may be a good idea to draw a basic plan of what you want your garden to look like. Think about the shape of your lawn and the shape of your borders. Do you want a seating area? Perhaps a screened off vegetable patch. These are all important things to consider so take your time and plan carefully.
Don’t forget to check what type of soil you have in your garden. Some soils are more acidic than others, some have a high clay content and all of this plays an important role in what plans will be suited for your property. Simple soil testing kits can be purchased from good garden centres and once you are armed with the information, you can head back to a garden centre and seek advice as to what plants will be good for your particular type of soil.
Finally do some careful research into the plants, shrubs and trees you wish to plant. Consider colours, size, shape and even consider what time of year the plants will flower. If you plan carefully your garden can change from one colour to the next, every month, giving you beautiful and vivid colours throughout the entire year.
