I have always wondered what it is to have a garden and to maintain it regularly. Of course, that was only until I made my own garden at home. It was really hard for me to get used to the hard labour in the beginning, but once I arranged my garden properly it became a piece of cake. The key to successful gardening is the good garden design. You must have a good project and a plan where to put everything in your yard, so that it is convenient and easy for maintenance.
All plants have to be placed in an area which is protected from bad weather conditions and is well-exposed to sunlight. There must be a water source close to the planted area, so that you can water your crops and flowers more easily. It is best if you build an automatic watering system, so that you don’t have to stay with the water hose in your hand for hours every evening in summer.
Another useful addition to a garden is the shed. Having a shed in your yard is great, because you don’t wonder where to put your gardening equipment and tools any more. You can store all kinds of things in it, just be careful not to build the shed on a sunny spot which is appropriate for plants. I recommend some shady corner of your yard for the purpose.
Make paths between the different areas, so not to get covered with mud when walking in your garden in rainy weather. If you are creative enough you can make stylish paths from different materials, such as wood, concrete, paving stones, etc. I have made my path from stepping stones in the shape of leaves. You can see the technology in the following video:
It is not easy to maintain a garden, but if you have the right garden design you will save a lot of efforts and time. Plan well before you put the project for your landscape into action.
