The secret to a perfect garden

Cobbled Path

Creating a perfect garden is every gardener’s aim.

I bet you don’t want to look at your hard work and think “Well, I’m pleased,  that is pretty average.”

But there’s a secret to creating a perfect garden.

It has to be perfect for you.

Create a perfect garden, even if you’re only a beginner.

Some people want the perfect food garden.  To others, it doesn’t matter what they plant, it’s more about the aesthetic and emotional value of the garden.

Creating a garden yourself takes a lot of time and effort. You’re going to have aches and pains in unknown parts of your anatomy.

To keep the passion going, you have to create what works for you. This will be your perfect garden, and it will be unique to you.

Your perfect garden is the one you imagine while you’re walking through the garden center. Do you see your kids playing on the lawn, or the splash of a formal fountain surrounded by lavender? Perhaps you’re walking with a basket, collecting the produce of your own veg garden.

Keeping this vision in mind when you choose what goes into your garden will help  you attain your perfect garden. It will influence every single one of your choices, from plants to hard landscaping to having a lawn or not. And if your idea of a perfect garden changes? That’s fine: it’s exactly what gardens do, they change!
