Some plants get bigger than others and take up more space. Make sure you give certain plants more room than others and plan enough sunlight for smaller plants. I’ve had smaller plants die in previous years because they eventually end up in the shadow of others. For example, tomato plants grow much bigger than green peppers. If you are planting the peppers behind the tomatoes and near a fence or garage, those peppers aren’t going to get enough sun.

Use a variety of sizes, sizes and textures in the plants you use. Use larger plants to anchor the area you are landscaping and arrange smaller plants to fill in any gaps around them. It is great to go with a theme if there is enough contrast to make your arrangement interesting.

Change the menu in your garden. For those who have vegetable and fruit gardens, it is a good idea to not plant the same vegetables year after year. Certain plants will attract certain unwanted insects. You do not want these insects to think that they can stay permanently.

Consider sharing costs with neighbors if you are wanting to improve your landscaping but are limited financially. You then be able to schedule as to who gets which equipment at a certain item can be used.

Mulch can be organic natural products or inorganic materials. The most familiar mulch would be lawn clippings, pine needles or perhaps a type of bark. Natural occurring mulches are materials the backyard gardener can find at the local gardening shop or big box store.

First things first, you must make sure that you have the land to plant on. If you have concrete or tile floors all over your pool, then there is a lot to be done. Get a friend or better yet, a tile contractor to help you remove the surface from the ground. This may take a day or two. If you really want a garden despite of this then you must be patient. Work hard and you will surely arrive at the things that you want.

Before starting construction on the greenhouse, it is best to check if it follows building codes in the neighborhood. If there are none, this will make it easier to put it up.

If you are passionate about the colors in your garden, just as you might be in life, then it stands to reason that you would take special care in tending your garden. If you choose colors and plants that don’t “speak” to you as a person then it also stands to reason that being in the garden would not be your preference. Think about the rooms you paint in your home and how some colors really depress you or make you unhappy so you wouldn’t use those colors to paint a room, it is the same with your garden. If you take the time to consider which colors, you would enjoy in your garden then you would surely ensure its success.
