Everyone wants a perfect garden, but most people aren’t quite sure where to start. Whether you’re a seasoned gardener looking to improve your craft or a novice with big dreams, here are six easy steps to a perfect garden.
First things first, imagine what a perfect garden would look like for you. What styles of garden do you like? What does your perfect garden include? What doesn’t it include? Take some time to really dream about your perfect garden and jot down some notes about what you’re looking for.
Develop Your Vision
Now that you have an idea of what your perfect garden looks like, grab some gardening and outdoor living magazines. Next, flip through them and cut out all of the pieces and items that would fit into your perfect garden. Don’t worry if your vision includes a lot of things, as the pruning will occur later.
Design Your Project
Now that you have a concrete vision for your perfect garden and some pictures of things that you love, start to design your actual garden. Place your house in a sketch and add circles or squares where you plan on putting landscape elements. Once you start to plan out your landscape elements, think about how you will get from place to place and utilize hardscaping.
Set a Plan
Now you need to start making your actual plans for your perfect garden. First, start by making a schematic of what you will be building, installing, and placing into your yard. Next, you’ll need to formulate a how-to plan that encompasses how you will build and install everything.
Use Best Practices
Now that you have your perfect garden plans, it’s time to start the building process. Use the best practices to determine the ideal way to construct every aspect of your yard. If you cut corners now, you will definitely pay for it in the future.
Implement One More Plan
Last but not least, implement a management plan to help you once the hard work up front is done. Planning and maintaining a perfect garden is hard work, but once you are done you will enjoy the beauty of your yard for years to come.
