Planting a flower garden will bring your property to life and be your yard's focal point. Designing a flower bed can be intimidating, but it doesn't have to be! Below we will discuss ten tips to ensure you will have a stunning flower garden.
How To Have the Perfect Flower Garden
1. Choose a location wisely
When deciding where to put a flower garden, consider how much sun your garden will receive and the accessibility your flower bed will have. Determining the amount of sun affects how well your flowers will thrive, and the garden needs to be very accessible, allowing you to move around freely to get in there and pull weeds. These two considerations are essential.
2. Pull weeds
Once you have found the perfect spot for your flower garden, go through the soil, pull any visible weeds, and eliminate debris such as sticks and trash. Also, rake any leaves up and take them away. Doing this will give you the perfect clean slate to begin planting.
3. Plant Perennials
At TN Nursery, you will find many spring plants and flowers for sale, including many beautiful perennials that will be the perfect addition to your spring flower garden. Planting Perennials not only adds exquisite beauty to your landscape, but these plants come back year after year, so there is no need for replanting yearly. It saves your work in the long run.
4. Add flowers of different blooming seasons
Along with planting perennials, adding different flowers that will bloom at other times is excellent. It will allow your garden to be full of life all season.
5. Give your flower garden a theme
Giving your flower garden a theme will provide unity and diversity throughout your flowers. Consider adding flowers of the same color scheme.
6. Choose a focal point
When designing your flower bed, consider adding a stunning focal point such as a flowering shrub in the middle of your flowers or other plants that will add height to your garden.
7. Prune any surrounding landscaping
Now that you have established your garden, look at the surrounding area to determine if any pruning and trimming are needed.
8. Fertilize your plants
Fertilizing your flowers will give them the boost of nutrients they need, giving them a jump start and the best chance of survival.
9. Avoid Clutter
It can be very tempting to add many flowers close together to make your area look full but try to avoid this. Remember, when planting flowers, you need to give them room to spread and grow.
10. Try to remain patient
Although it would be pleasant to be able to plant a beautiful flower garden and wake up the next day to a garden full of blooms, that is not the case. Beauty takes time, so be patient, and in no time, you will have a garden that exceeds your expectations.
