Getting Started? – The Basics of Gardening

So you have moved to a home with a good amount of space for an outdoor garden and you are all excited and anxious too. Beginning a garden can be a daunting task. You will need to decide what plants to grow, learn about pests and their prevention and also about the soil, water and light needed for a healthy garden.

You would need to buy new tools too. There are many gardening tools but do not get carried away as only a few are necessary. Buy high-quality basic tools that can be used for various different tasks rather than specialised tools which could be expensive and take up space.

Caring and maintaining for your new garden is when true gardening starts. Provided your soil is good and when needed fertiliser and mulch is used you are on your way to achieving that healthy and fruitful garden. Watch it grow and enjoy it!

Building Soil for a Rich Garden

Building up the soil is the key to a rich garden with abundant yield. A good organic-rich soil will foster the growth of healthy roots resulting in productive growth above ground too. The importance of caring for the soil before planting cannot be side-lined. New gardeners often make this mistake and they helplessly watch as their new plants struggle.
The soil needs to be taken care of first, it, in turn will take care of the plants. When the garden soil is good fewer fertilizers or pesticides are needed. So when building your soil you are also building your health.
