How to Make a Garden

The first thing to do in the garden is the choice of a place. Without a choice, it means simply making the best possible depending on conditions. In limited number of spaces, it solves not in itself garden, or a box garden. Probably a box garden is better than nothing at all.

But we now assume that it is possible to really choose the right site for the garden. What should be chosen? The biggest factor is the sun. No one would have a northeast corner, unless it is absolutely forced upon him because, in the far north corner to ferns, wildflowers, and begonias, they are of little use spots for a large garden.

If possible, choose the ideal exposure south. Here the sun is hot all day. When the garden is therefore situated rows of vegetables and flowers should run north and south. Thus positioned, the plants receive the sun 's all rays in the morning on the east side, and all afternoon on the west side. We must not plant asymmetrical with such an arrangement.

Suppose that the garden faces south-east. In this case, west of the sun is out of the problem. To obtain the best distribution of sunlight lines running north-west and south-east.

The idea is to obtain as much sunlight as evenly distributed as possible for the longest period of time. The unbalanced growth of the window plants it is quite easy to see the effect on plants of light poorly distributed. So if you use a little diagram remember that you want the sun to shine part of the day on one side of the plants and part on another, you can juggle at any situation. The southern exposure provides the ideal case because the sun provides nearly half of their time on each side. An exhibition north of May means a set of nearly cut sunlight, while the north and the south-west of places still get an uneven distribution of sun 's rays, whatever it is carefully planned.

The garden, if possible, should be planned on paper. The plan is a great help during the planting real time comes. It saves time and unnecessary purchase of seeds.

New garden spots are likely to be found in two conditions: they are covered with grass or garbage. In large areas of garden soil is plowed and sod turned on, but in small gardens remove the turf. How to remove the turf in the best way is the next question. Last offline and garden spot. The line gives an accurate and straight forward. Cut the edges with a shovel along the line. If the area is a small, say four feet by ten or twenty-eight, it is an easy question. This narrow strip May be defined as a checkerboard, the grass cut through the cat, and easy to remove. This could be done in two long strips to reduce the length of the strip. When the grass is cut through, riding on the right as a roll of carpet.

But suppose that the garden is high ground. Then divide this into strips one foot wide and off the turf as before. What should be done with the lawn? Do not throw it away because it is full of wealth, but not quite available. So pack turf grass down one place to another. Allow to decay and weather. When it is rotten to a fine of fertilizer. Such a pile of rotting vegetable matter is called a compost pile. Throughout the summer add any green vegetable to this question. In the fall put the autumn leaves. A fine lot of goodness is set for another season.

Even when the garden is large enough to plow, I would choose the largest pieces of sod rather than have them turned on. Review the ploughed space, choose the pieces of sod, shake well and pack them in a compost pile.

Mere spading the soil is not sufficient. The soil is still in pieces. Also for a pause should pique the lumps. But even if the ground is not fit for planting. Land must be very fine indeed to plant, because the seeds can be very close to fine particles of soil. But large chunks of leaving large areas that do tiny root hairs can penetrate. A seed is stranded in a perfect waste into pieces planted in soil. A baby surrounded with a lot of pieces of beefsteak of starvation. A seed among large pieces of land is in a similar situation. The cat can never do the job of spraying the ground. But the rake possible. That 's the value of the rake. It is a big cut in pieces, but not for large pieces. If the soil is still largely tracks to take the hoe.

Many people handle the hoe awkwardly. The head of this work is to implement to rid the soil of weeds and stir until the top surface. It is used in summer to form that mulch dust so valuable to retain moisture in the soil. I often see people as if they were going to cut into atoms around. The hoeing should never be such vigorous exercise than that. Spading is vigorous, hard work, but not hoeing and raking.

After pieces are divided use the rake to make the bed fine and smooth. Now, much of the work is done.
