Most people, who have a house, love to garden often. Whether it is the general upkeep of pulling weeds to more large scale designs, we are here to help you in whatever way possible.
The one thing most people can agree on is the nuisance that pests and bugs are. They eat your plants and or crops and they are an eyesore. Try to stay on top of the problem by looking for warning signs and acting accordingly.
If you have your heart set on growing a specific plant, check to see what growing conditions it requires. Vegetables will need at least 6 hours of sun exposure a day. The same goes for most flowering plants, however there are still many to choose from for a partially shaded site. If you want to start a garden where there is mostly shade, your choices are going to be more limited, but not prohibitive.
Garden design is the art and process of designing and creating plans for layout and planting of gardens and landscapes. Design may be done by the garden owner themselves, or by professionals of varying levels of experience and expertise. It takes a lot more planning than putting a few garden statues in your yard. Most professional garden designers are trained in principles of design and in horticulture, and have an expert knowledge and experience of using plants.
Some professional garden designers are also landscape architects, a more formal level of training that usually requires an advanced degree and often a state license. Many amateur gardeners also attain a high level of experience from extensive hours working in their own gardens, through casual study, serious study in Master Gardener Programs, or by joining gardening clubs.
Take into consideration when the sun hits your site. Afternoon sun will be hotter and more drying than morning sun. Many plants turn their faces toward the sun, so if your view of the garden is from a west window, your flowers may face away from you in the afternoon. Evaluate other elements of exposure such as high, drying winds or heavy foot traffic. A greenhouse can help with this issue. Also, any outdoor birdhouses should be in the shade.
Once you know where you’d like to try your first garden, use a hose or extension cord to try laying it out on the ground. Garden owners have shown an increasing interest in garden design during the late twentieth century, both as enthusiasts of gardening as a hobby, as well as an expansion in the use of professional garden designers.
Garden Tools are great for keeping your garden in the best shape possible. You will want a heavy metal rake. These are long and straight with teeth about 3″ long. They are necessary to smooth out newly tilled garden soil and break up clumps.
Yard rakes are a valuable member of Garden Tools and will help you get leaves out of your gardens. A narrow rake can maneuver around plants easier, but a wide rake makes quicker work of leaves.
Without Garden Tools, gardening really can become a chore. Plants, soil and compost all have to get to your garden somehow. That’s why you will need a wheelbarrow.
Garden Supplies consist of many different items. Garden shovels have round, pointed blades. They’re absolutely necessary for moving soil, digging holes and planting.
Garden Supplies are needed for transforming your garden. Pruning, deadheading and shaping plants goes on all year in the garden. Good pruners will not only make your job easier, it will make a cleaner cut on the plants and not tear or rip.
Garden Supplies can make great gifts too for all genders and ages. Hoes can make quick work of weeds. They can also be used to break up soil that isn’t too compacted.
Garden Fountains are beautiful additions to any garden. Water features are wonderful additions to the garden. They give a feeling of lushness and create a habitat for all kinds of creatures that will patrol your garden for pests.
Garden Fountains can transform a garden into something amazing. Ornate water features are sufficiently eye-popping to serve as focal points. In landscape design, focal points can make or break a project, so you’re spending your money wisely.
Garden Fountains need to be taken care of often. They can add value to your house. People will also be instinctively drawn to a fountain.
