Gardening With The Best Of Them

After I purchased my first home, I realized that I wanted to spend my spring and summer outside in my garden. After I prepared the soil, I headed to the garden center to buy a few seeds. Unfortunately, after all of my crops were planted, I didn't really know how to keep them alive. I seemed to be overwatering and under nurturing, which was a problem. I had to learn how to garden effectively, but it took a long time to figure everything out. This blog is all about gardening with the best of them, even if you are a novice.

Do You Love Working In Your Garden?

As spring approaches, many people begin to catch what is commonly known as spring fever. This yearning for warmer weather and blue skies is extremely common, especially during the gray months of January and February. If you need to beat the winter blues a little early this year, consider creating a plan for your outdoor garden space.


If you are an avid gardener, you may have already purchased your seeds and plants. If you are just beginning to garden, take a moment to think about what plants and vegetation you are drawn to. Begin making a list of the plants you would be interested in growing within your very own home garden. Once you have compiled a list of plants you would like to grow, begin another list that includes any garden features or objects you would like to place in your backyard haven. 


If you live in an exceptionally sunny area, you may want to include objects like umbrellas or sheets on your list. If your hometown gets breezy or stormy quite often, a pergola may add a layer of protection and safety to your backyard space. Having a pergola also increases the amount of indoor-outdoor living space you will have in your backyard. Purchasing a pergola will also help provide extra shade and protection for your plants as they begin to grow.

If purchasing a pre-made pergola is out of your price range or feels too intimidating, there are several other ways you can include this gardening essential in your space. For those who are not too do-it-yourself savvy, there are plenty of pergola kits that you can order online. Once the kit arrives, you simply follow the instructions and put the pergola together. These kits typically include all of the pieces you will need, but it is possible that you might need to purchase a hammer and a few handfuls of extra nails in case any get bent or damaged during the construction process. If you are very motivated and would like to build your own backyard shade protection, you can find a pattern online and create your very own pergola at a much lower cost. Building your own pergola allows you to create a custom piece for your special garden space. 


Planning out your future garden can help you beat the nagging winter blues. If you opt to include a pergola in your plans, your backyard space will be on its way to becoming a lush, relaxing space.
