It doesn’t matter whether you’ve been planning to have a garden for a long time or just have taken interest recently; this article is for you. We’ll give you the basic steps on how you can set- up your own perfect summer garden.
Start with baby steps
Even though you’re excited to see your flowers bloom and your plants to provide fresher air, you really have to start small. You have to determine how big your garden is going to be since you’re the one who will maintain it. It’s nice to walk around a castle- like garden if its well- maintained. Walking while bugs flying everywhere, weeds sticking out and withered leaves in every corner? Not so much.
Do a bit of research
Especially on which kind of plants or flowers you’re planning to have. Different plants require different method of maintenance and make sure to choose those that can work around your lifestyle. If you’re a busy person, you can opt for cactuses and succulents that require minimal care but if you have more time to spare, then you can take care of a more delicate flowering plant.
Prep the soil
Healthy garden needs healthy soil and you can start by fertilizing it. You can get fertilizers from any garden store but if you’re more inclined on the organic side, you can use compost for your soil and give it at least two weeks before starting to plant so it’ll have a chance to absorb the nutrients from the fertilizer or compost.
Consult the professionals
If you’re looking to have a garden for aesthetic purposes or if you really do not have any idea on where to start, consulting professionals such as GWB Holticulture will definitely save you a lot of time and effort. If you don’t want start from scratch you can give them a call and they are the one who will set up your garden for you. You’ll also be thankful as your garden will also be your house’s main attraction.
This is the most important part when setting up your garden. It doesn’t matter how beautiful your garden is if it can’t bring you joy. Gardening is supposedly fun so loosen up and enjoy digging the soil where beautiful things will soon grow.
