Choosing a Garden that is Perfect for You

| Articles | February 3, 2012

If you’re thinking about starting a garden, the first thing you need to

consider is what type of garden you will have. There are many different

choices and often it can be hard to pick just one, but hopefully you can

narrow it down. But by narrowing it down, you’ll make the gardening

experience easier on yourself and the plants. If all your plants are

similar, then it shouldn’t be very hard to care for them all. So here are

some of the main garden ideas for you to choose from.

If you’re just looking for something to look nice in your yard, you’ll

want a flower garden. These are usually filled with perennial flower.

Perennial flowers are flowers which stay healthy year-round. They’re

basically weeds because of their hardiness, only nice looking. Different

areas and climates have different flowers which are considered perennials.

If you do a quick internet search for your area, you can probably find a

list of flowers that will bring your flower garden to life. These usually

only require work in the planting stage – after that, the flower take care

of themselves. The only downside to this is that you don’t have any

product to show for it.

Another choice for your garden is to have a vegetable garden. These

usually require a little more work and research than a flower garden, but

can be much more rewarding. No matter what time of the year it is, you can

usually find one vegetable that is still prospering. That way you can have

your garden be giving you produce almost every day of the year! When

starting a vegetable garden, you should build it with the thought in mind

that you will be adding more types of veggies in later. This will help

your expandability. Once all your current crops are out of season, you

won’t be stuck with almost nowhere to put the new crops. A vegetable

garden is ideal for someone who wants some produce, but doesn’t want to

devote every waking hour to perfecting their garden (see below.)

One of the more difficult types of gardens to manage is a fruit garden.

It’s definitely the most high-maintenance. When growing fruits, many more

pests will be attracted due to the sweetness. You not only have to deal

with having just the right dirt and fertilizer, you have to deal with

choosing a pesticide that won’t kill whoever eats the fruits. Your fruit

garden will probably not produce year-round. The soil needs to be just

right for the plants to grow, and putting in another crop during its

off-season could be disastrous to its growth process. If you’re willing to

put lots of work into maintaining a garden, then a fruit garden could be a

good choice for you.

So now that I’ve outlined some of the main garden types that people

choose, I hope you can make a good decision. Basically, the garden type

comes down to what kind of product you want, and how much work you want to

put into it. If you’re looking for no product with no work, go with a

flower garden. If you want lots of delicious product, but you are willing

to spend hours in your garden each day, then go for a fruit garden. Just

make sure you don’t get into something you can’t handle!
