Garden Design: The Basics

So you want to plant a garden? Do not be afraid- garden design is something that is taken on by enthusiasts and beginners alike. They only way to increase your gardening skills is to jump right in and do it! There is a great deal of resources available to help you create the garden design that is right for you.

Get Your Creative Juices Flowing

Creating a garden design can be overwhelming; there are so many types of plants to choose from. Will you use daisies or roses? Petunias or tulips? Should you plant a tree?
In order to know what type of garden design is best suited to you a good idea would be to begin by looking for inspiration. There is an overabundance of gardening magazines, books and websites. You may even find inspiration in the local park, library lawn or a neighbour’s house.

Make a Plan

Once you have decided what you like and what you do not like it is probably best to make a plan. What area will you use for your garden? Some people have a great deal of space such as a yard and some people are limited to a space such as a patio or terrace. No matter the size of your space, you can still achieve the ideal garden for you!
Be sure to research the needs of each plant- does it like shade or sun? Does it need minimal watering or a great deal of watering? Doing this in advance will help you to group plants with similar needs together.

Keep It under Control

Though gardening can be a rewarding hobby, a garden can easily become more of a chore than fun. Proper maintenance is crucial to avoid an overgrown garden and possibly having to redesign it.
There are no set rules for garden design, so take out your green thumb and start planting!
