To help get started with your garden, here are some tips which worked well with me.
Lots of information and tips on gardening are easily accessible on books and magazines on gardening, the internet and your local nursery.
To get started there is a wide range of information you would like to know.
Then the question of the types of tools you need, along with the kind of tiller and the type of watering system which would be required.
Tip #1: Pull out the paper and start planning your garden because the time this will save will be huge.
Take the help of a friend if needed.
First make sure how you want your garden to look.
Gardening Tip #2: The way you have prepared your soil can decide whether you succeed in your gardening efforts.
Their needs vary.
For the natural flavor to remain in your food, use organic fertilizers in your vegetable or herb garden.
Instead of using ordinary fertilizer, try using any good compost or even wooden chip mulch.
It is a blessing when it starts to provide you with the returns.
While fresh home brew compost is rich in nutrients, it might prove to be unrealistic for the herb and vegetable garden.
While mulch is a viable alternative to home compost mixture, but ensure that you are using softer woods which break faster, like redwood or pine.
Ensure that you mix the ingredients well whether you prefer to use mulch, compost or fertilizer.
Instead lay the plants on top of the soil to check once and for all how your garden would ultimately look like.
At least that is what I feel.
For instance, all plants which have similar radius should be planted close to each other.
Then, if you arrange the plants in such a way that the taller ones are at the back with the shorter ones in front, then you can see all the plants together.
Never forget this.
A tough task is to keep at it.
An automatic watering system is best since it works on its own.
Choose anything from a large sprinkling system to a time on a hose - your automatic watering system can provide many options.
Gardening can be one of the most rewarding experiences - providing you with shade, beauty and at times food!
