Are you thinking of starting a garden this spring? If so, good for you! Having a garden is a wonderful experience that could change your life for the better. It may seem like a large undertaking if you have never done it before. But you do not need to start out with a huge garden that will take over your yard when you first start out. In fact, you can start with just a few containers and go from there!
First thing you will need to do is figure out what type of garden you would like to have. Scope out a good area in your yard and watch it for a day or two to see how the sun shines on it. Then, go to your local garden center and ask about which plants would do well in the spot you have chosen. Native plants tend to thrive much better than exotic plants, so they are great for your first garden.
Once you have your plants all picked out, you can start turning over the soil and adding nutrients if necessary. All it takes is a shovel and some man power to get it done. Then you can start planting your plants, watering and waiting!
Having a garden can be very beneficial to your property. It is aesthetically pleasing as well as great for the soil. It also helps drain water away from your home that could otherwise possibly damage the structure. And unless you have a flood insurance policy, you may not have coverage for that damage if it were to happen. So keeping that water away is your best bet.
