Gardening for Beginners - Quick Guide
Garden Grow. Can I Plant?
A garden needs preparation
If you are designing a garden, then a good preparation is a must.
Each garden is unique.
For instance, some might need to be able to deal with (excessive) rainfall.
In case of a larger garden digging must often be done by means of an excavator.
To prevent damage to the surface of a driveway the ground beneath should be firm and stable.
In places where plants must grow the soil should be loose just so plants can take root and grow well. This also ensures that the water in the soil sinks so sensitive plants can not " drown ".
Gardening for Beginners. Can I Plant?
Everyone dreams of a lush, beautiful, and green garden. But then you wake up, and the dream comes to an abrupt end due to lack of time and money.
And maybe you think you just don't have what it takes to make your garden bloom.
I'll walk you through eight great beginners tips for successful gardening:
1. What do you plan to do with your garden?
Should it become a playground for children, a garden with vegetables and herbs or a sea of flowers?
It 's not easy to combine all your wishes.
Therefore, it is useful to keep, especially in the beginningto keep things simple. Do not overdo it.
It takes a while before you have your own piece of paradise.
So think carefully about the features you want in your garden - a lounge, playroom, flowers - before you get started.
2. Start slowly ...
If you are the new owner of a house or apartment with a garden or balcony, it is a good idea to begin with small steps.. In your first planting season, you may discover dreams of the previous owner under the black earth of the garden. Many plants are perennials and continue to bloom year after year. Other parts of the garden maybe need to be dug out and addressed.

3. How much can you do yourself?
It is important to find a balance. Between time, knowledge and money. Many gardeners find it fun to do everything themselves. Others prefer to hire professionals : garden designers and landscapers. But you can do a lot yourself and you can always ask your neighbors to help ...
4. What are the weather conditions ?
There are many different hardiness zones within a country. Ask your local garden center or nursery for advice. They can tell you everything about plants, climate and soil. If you buy any plants without asking advice first, gardening can be costly.
5. Height, season and color.
There are three simple things you should remember when you plant flowers : height, season and color.
Choose plants with flowering periods that overlap, so you can enjoy blooming plants longer. Choose colors that fit together.
Ensure that large plants do not hang over smaller plants.
6. Invest in good quality
You can of course cheap and inexpensive gardening tools at the supermarket.
But plants do not grow well in poor, nutrient-poor soil.
And good tools should be able to last much longer than one season.
So buy good tools and materials !
You might end up paying a little more for tools and materials, but you will certainly have more fun with it.
7. Share with friends and neighbors
Not everyone in the neighborhood needs to own the expensive stuff, their own lawn mower or cultivator.
Borrow from your neighbors or buy expensive machines together with your neighbors (and buy good equipment !).
You can plant bulbs and share and exchange with your friends and neighbors, and exchange tips and strategies to help each other when there are heavy things that need to be lifted.
And invite them to a garden party afterwards to thank them!

Are You A Gardener
A Perfect Lawn
A properly landscaped lawn is the foundation for beautiful, lush greenery. But errors made in the beginning can not be offset by intense care in a later phase.
Start your lawn by loosening the soil with a tiller. Afterwards, the soil should be given some rest before uneven pieces can be equalized. Fine-grained soil is ideal to make sure the grass seed can grow properly. After seeding the grass start spreading fertilizer evenly (about 30 g / m²) and use a rake to mix the fertilizer with the soil. The newly landscaped lawn should be kept evenly moist so fragile sprouted grass does not dry out.
The first mowing must be done with recently sharpened blades so that the young grass is cut and not torn.
Do not cut more than one-third of the culm length.
The cutting height for lawns with average use varies depending on the weather and the season between 3 and 5 cm.
