First, plan your garden on paper or by using an app by drawing the layout and designating spots for the different areas of your garden, e.g. vegetable patches, trees. To help you with planting you should mark your calendar with the correct planting times for vegetables, flowers and other plants. When planting vegetables or fruit, plant in blocks and mark the individual patches with the names of the produce. Stay on top of maintenance to keep your garden tidy and healthy.
You can use wood to make a sturdy bottom for your raised garden bed. However, you can also use garden waste products like grass clippings, dry leaves or leaf mold.
When starting a garden you should first decide what you’d like to grow and choose a location for each plant. Next, plan your garden beds and blocks and buy some basic garden tools. There are many garden planning apps, books and websites to help you start a garden of your own. Also, make sure your soil is suitable for the plant you are trying to grow and prepare it with fertilizer if necessary. You should also remember to take constant care of your garden to keep your plants healthy and growing.
