If you have many low-growing plants in your garden, get yourself a pair of gardening knee pads. Excessive time spent kneeling often results in significant stiffness and pain. Investing in good knee pads will help cushion your knees so you are more comfortable.
Plant bulbs in your garden if you want flowers through spring and summer. Bulbs are one of the easiest plants to grow and are hardy perennials that return each year. Different types of bulbs bloom at different times, so if you choose appropriately, you can have blooms from early spring to late summer.
Use annuals and biennials to brighten your flower garden. Using a variety of flowers allows your flower garden to have a different look each season. These kinds of flowers are also excellent for filling in gaps between shrubs and perennials in sunny areas. There are many flowers you can plant in these gaps. Try marigolds, petunias or sunflowers for a brighter garden.
Plant dwarf fruit trees in small gardens. Most gardens, especially the ones in city lots, tend to be small, but there’s always area for a small fruit tree. These trees produce regular sized fruits and produce fruit after about four years from planting. Dormant trees should be planted in the spring and then watered well until they get established.
A typical English garden combines various plants of differing heights in a single bed. Plants that grow to be the same height end up uniform and flat looking.
Learn the proper way to lay sod. Before laying the sod, the soil must be prepared. Pull out any weeds and break up the soil. Compact the soil gently but firmly to be certain that it is indeed flat. You then will want to thoroughly wet the soil. The sod should be laid in staggered rows, with the joints offset from one another. After the sod has been flattened to an even surface, you can use soil to fill any remaining gaps. Water your sod daily for a fortnight, which is enough time for it to root and be able to withstand foot traffic.
