You shouldn’t rush the process of creating a beautiful garden. Some plants are very sensitive, which is why plenty of thought should be given to the design stages. However the effort that goes into it is certainly worth it.
Do Not Overlook Your Pet: Many folks have the silly idea that your pet will not get along with your garden, this is inaccurate. A little cleverness goes a long way. Your pets may demand certain necessities; you simply take these into consideration. Nobody wants brown spots on their yard and this, unfortunately, will happen when your pet relieves themselves, because of the nitrogen in the excrement. You can keep this from happening by spraying the area with water or sprinkling with gypsum. Taking feces into account, you can bury it or toss it into the trash. Be sure not to pitch your pets excrement into the compost bin; because of the meat your pet eats, your fertilizer would become an unhealthy one. Remember that your pets will need water to drink and some shade, so take these factors into consideration when designing your garden.
For your garden to succeed you need to fertilize your plants, so they’ll need fertilizer. To ensure your plants are healthy you need to provide them with a boost of minerals and nutrients. 3 of the main nutrients plants need are nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. Nitrogen helps with stem and leaf growth and is usually the most important nutrient. Disease resistance and overall health are aided by potassium and phosphorus helps to produce flowers, fruits, seeds and the growth of roots. All of these are important so you will need to find a balanced fertilizer that has all 3 of the nutrients. For your garden it is easy to choose the best fertilizer as they are all labeled to help you decide. Different fertilizers are better for different purposes, such as more phosphorus would be recommended for flowering plants and a high nitrogen fertilizer would be recommended for lawns.
Grow Your Own Veggies: You can use your garden for so much more than just growing flowers, even if they are beautiful. All it takes is one packet of seeds, good soil, moisture and plenty of sun and you can grow your own vegetables. It’s quite fun to grow your own produce and it’s very satisfying to harvest it! However, growing vegetables might seem complicated since you have to start the plants off indoors and then move them, deal with insects and other pests, and so on. But don’t worry, you can always begin with something small and then move up as you get more experienced. Growing your own produce will not always mean that you save money but that’s not what it should be about anyway. It should be about growing the freshest and best quality produce for yourself. Veg doesn’t get more fresh than straight from your very own garden!
To make your garden perfect all you need to do is see what works best together and what conditions work best for your plants. Knowing as much as you can will make it easier for you to look after your garden.
