Having a neatly trimmed lawn is a nice addition of natural scenery to one’s home, but for many, it’s only the beginning of the gardening adventure. A yard is only truly complete after the installation of plants, shrubs & trees has finished, and the whole area is brimming with natural beauty.
Depending on the size of your lawn, you might need to make some sacrifices if you want to include every natural asset you had in mind. It’s safe to say that plants can be added to any garden to improve its appearance without taking up too much space. Flowers are the primary type of plant that comes to mind when thinking of gardening. They come in a truly great variety, some common and other quite exotic, and many require specialized care be put into them lest they dry up. Of course, vegetables are also popular plants one can place in their yard. While not the most aesthetically pleasing sight, this type of yard work can be very beneficial to a household, both from a nutritional and an economic perspective.
Fruits are also something that can grow in one’s garden, but growing them tends to require a bit of additional space. The same goes for regular trees, as well as shrubs. Trees are often planted outside one’s home in order to block unwanted sights, but planting them can come with its own set of difficulties. When choosing between trees to plant, you should pick one that will react well to the soil around your residence, as well as the amount of light and the climate in the area.
Paying attention to these conditions will greatly increase the survivability and longevity of the tree. Once you have chosen a type of tree that is in accordance with environmental factors mentioned above, think about the way of transporting the plant to the planting site. Trees and shrubs are usually grown in nurseries and then transported to their new place of residence by means of a vehicle. Take special care to ensure that the vehicle is spacey enough to avoid any damage to the tree during loading, transportation and unloading.
When the plant arrives, you should already have a planting hole prepared in the soil. From there, it’s a matter of using the right method to insert the plant into the hole and seal the hole with soil and dirt. Of course, once the tree or shrub is in place, don’t forget to care for it regularly by supplying it with enough water and fertilizer so that it can potentially serve you for many years to come.
