April is National Gardening month! While we may not all be fans of rain, we can’t deny the beauty it brings when those vibrant flowers begin to bloom. Whether you’re interested in starting a garden or simply want to brush up on your skills to maintain the beautiful one you already have, read on!


Start Brainstorming

Gardens are a lot of work, but maintaining one is a huge accomplishment. To be sure you invest in something worth your time and money, begin brainstorming about your garden. Do you want to plant herbs, flowers, plants, or vegetables? The options are seemingly limitless, but a Google search can help you narrow down your options.

Pick Your Place

You’ve probably envisioned your colorful garden and the overwhelming amount of various flowers you’ll have, but have you thought about where your garden will be? Plants require about 6-8 hours of sunlight a day in order to blossom and grow adequately. Think about which areas around your home offer the most amount of sunlight.

Dig It Up

Once you’ve designated one area for your ‘garden’ dig up the dirt to improve the soil. You’ll want loosely packed soil because it allows roots to form and penetrate the ground easily. It’s best to loosen up the ground while simultaneously adding compost to your soil for added nutrients.

Plant it

Decide what it is you’re planting: flowers, plants, vegetables, etc. You may decide to look through a few catalogs, research online, or talk to a salesperson at your local garden center. Once you make your decision, plant it!

Consistency is Key

When it comes to planting, consistency is key. Make sure you water your plants daily, provide enough sunlight, and protect them from harm. It would be wise to invest in a small plastic guard or gate that will keep hungry animals away. Also, remember to pull any weeds that begin to grow around your plants- nothing screams unkempt garden like weeds!
