Picking The Ideal Location For Your Garden

Once you have picked what garden you want, there are many other factors

you need to decide before you actually get to work with your gardening

tools. Mainly you need to choose its location. This is usually decided by

several factors: How you will water it, how much shade it needs, etc. Some

of these questions can be very important in deciding whether your garden

lives or dies, so don’t take them lightly. You need to take each one into

special consideration.

Choosing the garden’s location within your yard is one of the more

important things to decide. You want to choose a location that will

provide an ideal climate for the plants in your garden. I don’t know what

type of garden you’re dealing with so I can’t give you specific advice,

but if you do a Google search for the plant you’re dealing with then

you’ll find a plethora of sites informing you about the perfect conditions

for its growing. After this, it’s just a matter of finding the most shaded

or most sunny spot in your yard.

Another deciding factor is how you plan on watering your garden. If you

have a sprinkler system already installed for your grass, then it could be

a good idea to put your garden in the middle of your yard. Then it will

get watered at the same time, and require no extra work from your part.

But if this doesn’t provide for a good location for your garden, then you

might end up watering it by hose or dragging a sprinkler out there. In

this case, just make sure your garden is within the ideal distance for a

hose to reach. While this might not seem like a good thing to base the

entire location of your garden on, you’ll be surprised at how nice it is

to plan out in advanced.

Getting the perfect amount of shade for your garden can be a difficult

endeavor. Once you have a basic idea for where you want your garden, you

might want to watch it and record how many hours it spends in sunlight and

how many it spends in shade. Compare your findings to an online web site,

and you should be able to determine whether the spot you chose is ideal or

not for planting and starting your garden in. Of course the amount will

change as the seasons change, but this should give you a good idea of what

to basically expect for the rest of the year. If necessary, later you can

put up some kind of shade to protect your garden from getting too much sun.

After you’ve determined the ideal place for your garden and whether it has

the right amount of sunlight, and whether you will be able to conveniently

water it, you’re one step closer to actually starting your garden. Of

course there are other factors that I have overlooked here, but mostly you

should be able to decide whether your location is good or not based on

common sense. Just think: If I were a plant, would I be able to flourish

here? If you can honestly answer yes, then I think its time for you to

head out to your local gardening store and buy the necessary soil and

fertilizer to get started! Have fun!
