Planting Your Garden
Once you find that you’ve settled into your new home, you may want to do a little work on your outdoor space. Making sure that you tend to both the outside and inside of your property can create a genuinely relaxing atmosphere, especially after a long, hard day at work.
Gardening not only spruces up the exterior of your home; it’s also very relaxing. It can be a lot of fun planting the seeds of a new home, and a lot of people find that gardening helps to combat stress and anxiety, while increasing a general sense of well-being. It can even be enjoyed by the whole family!
If you’re looking to create the perfect garden, you’ll need to do a bit of planning. When you’re getting all of your equipment together, be sure to consider:
- Where you would like your garden to be (including where it can get the best sunlight, shade, and water, depending on the needs of the plants)
- What plants you would like to have. Are you a flower person? Or would you prefer to have more vegetables in your garden?
- What other accents you would like (i.e. statues, bird baths, water fountains, etc.)
- The overall size of the garden.
- How much time you would like to spend tending the garden. Some people prefer something that’s lower maintenance, while others enjoy getting out into the garden at least once a day. The amount of time you are willing to spend will be influenced by the size of the garden itself.
- Whether you would like to plant your seeds and grow the plants, or you’d prefer to plant your greens while they are fully grown.
- The climate you are in. Not all perennials will flourish in certain climates.
- Whether you have children or pets that can potentially get into the garden.
- Your budget. How much are you willing to spend? Fortunately, gardening doesn’t always have to be an expensive hobby.
Once you have all of your materials together, it’s time to get started! As with all things, gardening requires a little extra patience, so don’t try to do everything at once. If you’re transplanting anything, start with those things first, and then plant and decorate accordingly. You might that this might be the beginning of a beautiful relationship for you and your outdoor space.
