Sometimes it does feel a bit overwhelming when there is so much to do and you don’t know where to start. But fear not! Have a browse through our basic gardening tips to help you start up that exciting new hobby!
1. Plan your garden landscape
Planning is pivotal. It gives you a constructive idea of where to plant and also can help you decide what to plant. While planning, take note of where the sun shines most in your garden and also where the shadiest parts of your backyard are. This is especially important because it will determine the type of plant you may plant in that particular area. Some might need more sunlight and some can survive with fewer succulents. Planning also means that you are not overwhelmed by the space that you have. It gives you the ability to tackle different gardening elements in small steps.
2. Spice up your garden canvas!
Gardening is an art form. The empty space that you have in your backyard is your canvas. Hence, use the opportunity to plant a variety of plants in different colours, sizes, and shapes. Mix sturdy trees that are drought resistant with low shrubs for that stark contrast. Colour contrast can create the illusion of depth making your backyard appear more full. The sky is your limit! Have fun with seasonal flowers and change it up according to the four seasons and watch your garden just flourish with the bright blossoms and beautiful scents.
3. Introducing plants into your garden!
Whether it be for their flowering properties or just the colour, and perhaps the scent, we recommend planting what you love. There is nothing quite as exciting as watching the progress of your favourite plants on a day to day basis. And even more fun when you watch them bloom the first time. It does not just brighten the garden but it will surely brighten up your day too!
