How to organize plants in my garden...

Believe it or not gardens can reflect many traits of our personality. Since there are many options of plants and flowers and ways to organize them, you can choose the ones you like the most and make your landscape a work of art. There are several things to take into consideration when organizing the plants in your garden so they stay fresh and full of life:

• Start with the basics. Good soil preparation is the key for a healthy looking garden.
• Try to match the colors and properties of the flowers you mix.
• Use flowers and plants with similar needs: water, sun and soil conditions so they all maintain a nice appearance.
• Analyze the surroundings. Plant your flowers in an appropriate place for them to grow, if you plant them near mature trees its roots will absorb the nutrients and provide shade making it difficult for flowers to blossom.
• Look for places to create new flower beds, borders or islands in a place where they look great and get the nutrients they need.
• Be aware of the style and architecture of your home. Also the background for the landscape.
• Keep in mind the size of your yard available for gardening. Try to use appropriate plants for each size so none of them provide shade or restrict airflow to the others.
