Determine the purpose of your garden and look for a site What will be its purpose? Will it be there for visual reasons or do you need it to grow food like basil, oregano, and other herbs? You also need to find an area for your green space. Look around your yard to see how much space you can allot for your garden.
Plan your garden and execute it Once you have a site, take note of the plants that you want to keep there. Be mindful of the natural elements around it as well. This goes for condo dwellers, too. Does the balcony have an abundance of natural light? Do you have a water source?
Maintain your garden Don't forget to allot time for your plants. Water them and make sure they get enough sunlight. You may choose to start with low maintenance plants and take it from there.
