Effective Garden Planning

Garden planning is no small or insignificant task. Having a large number of blossoming tasks in your garden can certainly be a pleasant sight to watch but it requires a lot of hard work and wise decisions on your part for the plants to attain that stage. Proper research is required to make your garden look elegant and cost effective at the same time. If you donít devote proper time and energy to its maintenance, you will have to incur a lot of expenditure to bring it up to shape again.

The first step in effective garden planning is to see which type of flower plants would grow well in the type of soil found in your area. This can be done by searching on the internet. Some websites give details of which plants are suitable for the soil in your area and also the time of the year during which these plants should be grown. There are also a number of books available which give details of the soil type, sun/shade and watering requirements of each type of plants. You can then divide different plants to want to grow into groups based on their seasons.

There are different types of plants available. These are divided into trees, shrubs, roses, perennials, annuals, bulbs and corms. You must think twice before planting trees because they have a tendency to grow out of control and also occupy a major proportion of your garden. Roses require a lot of care and work like regular spraying and removing of dead flowers. Bulbs and corms require separate amounts of efforts depending on their variety.

The best thing for you would be to divide your garden into separate blocks or bed. This helps you to devote time to manage each of these alternately. You must also know which plants should be grown in the sun and which grow well in the shade. The soil should be treated with lime and fertilizers before sowing the seeds. Treating with lime helping to neutralize the acidic nature of the soil and enhances the ability of the soil to transport nutrients. Fertilizers like natural manure or nitrogen fertilizers can be used depending on your financial capacity.

One thing to keep in mind when you are planting the seeds is to maintain room for moving around. This will help you to reach each plant and care for it properly. Having proper room around it also helps the plants to grow well.
