Steps to Creating Your Own Urban Garden

If there’s one thing today’s world needs more of it’s got to be greenery. Knowing the importance of plants, we still fail to give them as much attention as they need and even focus more on creating new and enlarged cityscapes. Considering the ratio of the amount of greenery and pollutants in a city, parks alone aren’t enough. This is a worthy reason to make you think of becoming a gardener. It doesn’t matter how small you go so long as you contribute to the preservation of the environment. With the trend of tiny gardens nowadays, gardening has never been easier because you can have plants just about anywhere, be it your balcony, patio, deck, or even inside your home by your kitchen counter or living room bookshelves (where there’s a will, there’s a way!).

When you decide to create your tiny garden, there are certain steps to cover. First things first, it’s good to gather up some knowledge and get the right gardening books so you’d ensure your garden would thrive, knowing your thumbs are really green. Creating a garden in pots is not only pleasing for the eyes, but can also help with making gardening easier for you, requiring low maintenance, as they particularly make it difficult for pests to attack. The choices of pots on line are vast, in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours, and make for easy purchase, so you could purchase in an instant without leaving home, have the pots delivered and start gardening right away. When you have your green area at home, pots and containers can be the surprising decorating pieces you didn’t count on, adding to the style of your interior.


Along with choosing the suitable pots on line, you should use the opportunity to find out more about the different seeds and decide on which ones you’re going to plant. To make the most of your garden, it’s advisable to grow your own vegetables and fruits but be wary – choose the ones you eat. This is your chance to cut down on the costs of getting fresh produce and eliminate fruits and vegetables that are grown with pesticides from your menu. If you’re after exceptional taste (then again, who isn’t), you can’t go wrong by opting for heirloom seeds organic with high nutritional value. Even if you buy more than you need, you can always save them for future planting; this is how you preserve the plants’ diversity and grow ones that are more pest resistant.

Once you’ve got this covered, your last step is to figure out the best location or spot in your home, that provides the right conditions for your plants. Sun and shade are equally important for plants’ full thriving as much as water is; certain plants require more than six hours of sun per day, others require more shade so you have to do your homework and find out the plants’ requirements before planting to ensure success.
