After a long winter, it can be difficult to remember everything that goes into designing a garden. Walk around your property and take the time to make a list of the things you will need.
3. Assess the condition of your soil
In order to determine if you need to improve the condition of your soil with potting soil, compost or fertilizer, it is important to know its condition.
4. Read labels
You will find on the back of the labels of the plants several tips concerning maintenance, light requirements, fertilization and watering.
5. Consider mulch
