Who don’t love having their own garden, especially women? Almost of us want to have our own gardens so we could express ourselves and plant the trees and flowers that we want. Some of us also love to design that will be resulted by the plants.
I’ve read a very amazing story about gardening in one of the Chicken Soup books, the husband spend a whole day in the garden planted the flowers in new designs. The wife, who was getting older and couldn’t help in the garden anymore, wasn’t patient waiting the husband to finish the gardening. It already took more hours than the ordinary. She also didn’t like the way her husband plant the flowers.
Several weeks later, when the wife was parking their car, she saw a very beautiful view from their garden. Can you guess what is it? The flowers planted before shaped the wife’s name. For her, it’s one of the most romantic things her husband did during their marriage live. You can also do the same thing to your garden, to make your beloved ones happy.
Admit it, some of you plant expensive seeds just to ‘show up’ to your neighbors, right? Even, I find some people that never do gardening but speak loudly to their colleagues how they love gardening and have a very beautiful garden. In fact, it’s fun to do gardening by your own, especially when you include the whole family members.
It’s not about having the most beautiful garden in the neighborhood. When you ask your children, you children might do mistake when planting the flowers or seeds, but they can learn from it. You can pay gardener to give you a perfect garden, but they’re not able to give you the family time that you can enjoy while decorating your garden.
Having a beautiful garden doesn’t stop there, you should clean it up regularly, throw away the unwanted trees, etc. You can put this as part of your monthly schedule. By doing this, you can love your garden because you’re really the owner of it…
Moreover, managing your garden is not only about what people can see and enjoy, it also includes storing the seeds for the upcoming seasons, gardening equipments, oils, fertilizers, etc. You should keep those things in the garden sheds, not inside your house in different rooms. It will be difficult for you to find the supplies and/or equipments that you need later. We have to be discipline in managing our storage, including our gardening tools and equipments.
Have a great garden and enjoy gardening, readers!
