Some people use the word “garden” interchangeably with the words “landscape” and “lawn,” but gardening to most people is the act of purposefully growing plants you can use, like fruits, vegetables, and even herbs.
You may have a desire to cultivate your green thumb, but you need some garden ideas so you’ll know which direction to go in when it comes to designing your garden, buying the right tools and seeds, and applying tips to make it a success.
The first thing you need to decide is what kind of garden have you been hoping to build?
One of vegetables? A little herb garden? Fruits?
It’s all up to you, and some people even garden with nothing but flowers, instead of planting seeds that produce edible results.
Once you know what you want to see sprouting in your garden, you’ll have to look at the space that’s available for you.
If it’s limited, then you might need to get creative, embarking on a container gardening experience or pursuing what’s becoming really popular these days and is known as vertical gardening.
If space is no obstacle, then you have the luxury of designing a garden space that includes a wide variety of plants with plenty of room to grow.
But even in limited spaces, you can create a protected area that provides a perfect home for your living plants.
You’re going to need ideas on the best things to grow in your geographical area. Some places get more sun exposure than others.
Some have shorter growing periods, so you’ll need to know exactly when to put the seeds into the ground, and look for information on when they should yield results for you.
A garden is much more than a mix of fertilizer and seed sprouts. You want to look for garden ideas that include design tips.
You can make a very tranquil outdoor living space if you include beautiful walkways between the rows, attractive potters on your patio for the container gardening, or amazing trellises for your vertical garden.
As your current crop is growing, you’ll want to look for more garden ideas for the subsequent growing season. Look at your results each season, too.
If you notice that one type of food doesn’t flourish in your garden, it might be wise to swap it out with another item the next time that season comes around.
Garden ideas also include personal preferences about moral issues.
For example, you may want to design an eco friendly garden, void of pesticides – one that’s also able to harness the natural elements using something like a rain barrel or the waste created in your home with a compost bin, to supply nourishment that your garden needs.
