Beginner Flower Garden – Tips for a Beautiful Garden

Planting a flower garden may be an overwhelming experience for anybody let alone a beginner gardener.  The good news is there are easy ways to get around it by following these simple steps.  Read on to find out what these simple tips are for planning your garden landscape and what lawn décor to choose to get what you want from the sweet escape in your backyard.

Before you head to a nursery or garden center, make sure you have a plan.  Think about where you want to put your flowers and garden accessories, what colors you want where, how many and so forth.  This will make your shopping experience much easier and faster and probably less expensive. You’ll want to enjoy a garden that’s in bloom from early spring to late fall by choosing annuals (plants that do not come back every year) and perennials (plants that do come back every year) based on when they flower.  Refer to plant tags for specific information that pertains to your garden.  When picking plants at the nursery pay attention to the height and width before assigning them a permanent home.  When it’s time to divide your perennials, offer to share your extras with your garden-savvy neighbors in return for plants you don’t have yet.  Make sure to observe your yard’s sun and shade areas.  Look for wet or dry spots.  Watch for sandy soil and dense clay.  By knowing your garden’s conditions, you can plant flowers where they’ll thrive.  For soils that do not produce thriving plants consider putting garden accessories such as garden statues, gnomes, wind spinners, wind chimes, stepping stones, mulch, rock, and other lawn and garden décor.  When choosing garden accessories for additional lawn décor around your garden, consider potting perennials and/or annuals in containers and placing them around your yard. Garden planters are an easy way to create colorful accents. Many plants benefit from deadheading, when faded blooms are removed to encourage new growth.  To deadhead, cut off the spent slower close to a bud that’s lower on the stem or above a leaf node.  To enjoy perennials or annuals indoors, cut the flowers in early morning or late afternoon, submerge them in lukewarm water and add a floral preservative.

Garden accessories are a great way to add a little extra something to any outdoor space.  The nice thing about garden accessories is that they come in all forms, shapes and sizes.  Choosing the right lawn décor for your garden or backyard is always a fun experience because there is so much you can do with it.  Garden stepping stones make transitioning from one place in your backyard to another very easy and it is also very decorative.  Stepping stones can be anything from limestone rock, cement blocks or slates to flat plaques. Don’t forget about your avian friends.  Putting bird houses, bird baths and bird feeders in a flower garden invites even more color and entertainment to enjoy.  There are tons of different kinds of bird feeders out there; some are decorative, some are for specific kinds of birds and some are very plain-jane bird feeders.  Which ever strikes your fancy your avian friends will be sure to re-visit your flower garden.  Other garden accessories you can consider putting up in your flower garden are wind chimes and wind spinners.  You can find many different kinds of hook stands out there for hanging these types of garden accessories as well as brackets for the side of a post or wall.

Your flower garden will look amazing after following these simple steps in planning for a garden.  The nice thing about garden accessories is that they are versatile.  You can put them almost anywhere and plant flowers around them or accent some already planted flowers and plants with the garden accessories.  Whatever you choose to do you will be happy with the result it produces.
