Of all the components, parts, pieces, and plants which are into getting together again your small garden design the main, certainly, may be the soil itself.
Soil abundant in nutrients, with good drainage, is the best insurance you will get to boost your new garden. On the other hand, should your soil isn’t healthy, or should your site doesn’t have good drainage, there exists almost no possibility of successfully growing a healthy, vibrant garden.
Obviously, all plants need water, and several need more than the others most plants found in landscaping won’t flourish if they’re over watered. So, when planning your small garden design, you need to include thinking about how your planting beds are likely to drain.
Because many parts of the country have soil which has a high clay content, drainage may be pretty challenging.
Many gardeners handle clay by digging out six inches possibly even of soil and after that adding a proper topsoil mix fortified with peat moss. Even though this is apparently the best way to attack the challenge, in reality all you need done is make a bathtub that can retain water so much that the soil you might have added is soggy continuously.
If here’s your challenge I think the only real workable option is to create raised planting beds. Adding six to twelve inches of height, and up, allows the planting bed to drain using your structure naturally which, subsequently, will promote healthy growth.
Correctly planning your beds from the outset is critical to your later success. Remember that once you begin planting it will not likely be possible to include more soil for a beds without removing all of the already installed planting first.
As they used to say, maintain your six “Ps” in mind: Prior Planning Prevents Pretty Poor Performance!
