Making Your Garden Stand Out From Others
Even though today a housegardenhas shrunk to a few pots in the balcony, the concept of your own plot of land with flowers and various other plants was a must at every home some time ago. Rather than spending a lot on making the house stand out with new gadgets and additions, you can easily do up a garden, smaller as it maybe, with lesser cost to have a unique adobe.
Tips on making a garden
When you are buying the house itself, declare a land portion for this. It can be in front of the house, at the back or at a side of it. You can grow anything there; try flowers, vegetables, spices, herbs and more. You can do the planning in two ways; either you grow according to the size of the land plot, or you decide what to grow and then choose a land plot. However the latter is possible only if you have a considerable space around the house, if you want to grow fruit trees etc. As with new technology and methods you can try hanged pots, hydroponics and more, space really doesn’t matter anymore. If you want to have pots in a narrow, long spot of land or even on the rooftop, you can easily use a wooden bench and metal retaining wall to support them.
What to grow
There are many things you can try. Of course unless you have space and means to construct a plastic house where the weather is controlled, you will have to stick to flora suitable to the area you are living in. Flowers need a lot of sun, some leafy vegetables need more water, herbs may need shade and so on. You need to just read up on their requirements in the web or borrow a book from the local library. Garden shops can give you advice in addition to selling the required saplings, seeds, fertilizer and more. However rather than getting addicted to synthetic fertilizer, it is always best if you can make compost out of kitchen waste and garden waste. You can also try liquid fertilizer as opposed to the old method of mixing fertilizer with soil.
Make it unique
There are many ways to make the garden unique. You can, of course, buy a lot of stuff, or try DIY technique for some. For example, you can have a small pond with water lilies and the like. It just requires some cement and oxygen feeders. You can also make a pathway in the garden; make it stand out with concrete sleepers in Melbourne so it will look like a real train track path.
Be an owner of an exceptional garden and reap the benefits of a tranquil hobby, not to mention the ability to boast about it to everyone.
