DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN.

Plan Your Garden Well Before Planting Trees And Plants

Before you start gardening, you must plan your garden. Well may be you are thinking that what will be the need of a plan - as if you are building a house or making some engineering drawing and plotting for your garden.

It may not be that serious actually, but of course it holds value. Gardening does need planning. Gardening can be of various types, and those who are the beginners in gardening would like to know that, you can do nature gardening, kitchen gardening, herb gardening, fruit gardening, flower gardening, and simply aesthetic gardening. And depending on the type of gardening you plan to do, you must have a good garden plan ready to make your garden a great success.

Why You Need A Good Planning For The Garden

The benefits of a well planned garden are:

  • Plants are raised on well built and well placed beds, which are raised enough not to collect water, or dug up in soil up to that optimum depth, that they may collect and get the maximum rainwater (which may be required for some type of plants).
  • Pathways are built in a planned garden so that, there remains enough room to walk in between plant beds, and you do not step on a plant and crush it.
  • Nursery can be made separate, where you may be required to visit more often than the rest part of the garden, and thus can be made close to your access.
  • Placement of the water pipe or the tap, or a well or pond has importance, as you draw water from the source every now and then and at least twice a day. Thus you will need to plan that accordingly.
  • If you plan to have a green house, then you may do so by appropriate planning.
  • You would not like to plant trees at just any arbitrary place in the garden, and trees must be planted along the periphery of a garden to create both border and shade in the right places. You may want to plant a few trees near the planned nursery, so that the saplings get optimum shade from the trees.
  • Because of all such reasons, it’s always a good idea to plan the garden, just like you make a rough planning of your interior at times.

Problems With An Unplanned Garden Shift

You may be entering a new house, and may need to shift some of your treasured plants with you to the new garden. Then you will need even better gardening plan to place them right. Your new house may have a bigger or smaller gardening area, and thus it will be crucial to plan it accordingly, or the plants will look congested, cluttered, and in a few days would all fight for space and sunlight killing or barring the growth of one another.

Another big problem with a highly cluttered garden can be the insufficient availability of resources. When a lot of plants would be close to each other, not all would get optimum sunlight, optimum rain water or ground water. Food and fertilizers would also be consumed heavily, and as a result, plants would lose their shape, leaves and flowers would become smaller. Also flowering plants may not flower properly; fruiting plants may not yield well and so on.

Basic Planning Requirements

An herb garden would require you to place one type of herb at a distance from another type, and you will need more space for that. But then again a flower garden would require compact placing of plants, so that flowers look good when bloomed together. It’s not only the utility side you should be bothered about, but also the aesthetic values.

If the garden just looks like a messy forest but has all useful medicinal plants, vegetables, fruits etc in it, then nobody except you would take interest in it. Also you would become irritated to harvest some vegetables when you go inside, because of insects, flies, mosquitoes and bugs that grow too much in a forest like place. Moreover if there are twining plants, then they may bar your movements in a messy garden.

Give It A Nice Theme

Theme is an important part of your garden too. You should use interesting colors to decorate the flower beds, take time to color the boundary fences and make the place as nice as it can look, so that you yourself feel like complementing the beauty. You may place fountains at the centre of the garden, or may place a seat or bench. May be your garden won’t get many visitors to sit on the seat, but it would help you when you would be tired of watering the plants, or making soil for some new containers.

Consider Lighting Your Garden

It is obvious that you will not be gardening at night, unless you have a different type of daily routine. But still you should consider placing some lighting in your garden, so that if by chance you need to go for a night expedition to your garden, you do not have to stumble over your low power torch light. Moreover when you will be gardening in a cloudy day, you may need a little light for making the soil, or mixing the compost or fertilizer.

Also consider keeping one charging or connecting point, so that a small table fan or cabin fan may work. It will help you get some air in very hot summer days.

More Space For Gardening

Besides conventional backyard space for gardening, you may also use other spaces. You can use the front door, and the front windows of the house, where you may hang garden pots with warm colored flowers. It will look great when passerby would notice the warm welcoming flowers, and it would obviously be a great way to welcome your guests.

You may also use the space in front of your garage as well. The space on both sides of the garage is a good area to plant some flowers in a line that will make the car’s pathway decorated. There are more ways how you can decorate your garden, and you can use ideas from various sources to enhance the beauty of your garden, and plan it better. Category: Gardening
