Where to Plant
One thing we can give you advice about is where to plant your garden. You will want to consider how much sun a certain part of your yard gets, as well as the amount and quality of the soil. Most vegetables need rich, well-drained soil. We can help you determine which area of your outdoor space would be most suitable for these needs. We can also help you figure out what methods of improving your soil are best and how to ensure that your garden is getting enough water.
Gardens can be planted in many ways, from raised beds to rows to containers. We can help you decide which method is most appropriate for your outdoor space. We can help you decide what size your garden beds should be and customize their layout, based on the amount of space you have for your garden.
What to Plant
Once you’ve decided where to plant your garden and what it’s going to look like, it’s time to decide what you will put into the soil. We can help with that too. Our experts can offer tips on which vegetables and plants grow best in your soil and which will thrive in your unique garden’s layout and design. We can also give you information about the yield of certain vegetables and when you can expect to harvest what you grow. If you’re growing food to feed your family, our experts can recommend how many of each plant to put into the ground and how far apart to place them.
Another thing you can count on when you seek out a landscaping service for garden advice is tips on planting. We have a lot of experience with planting and growing and are happy to share it with you. That might be where to put your tomato garden or which plants might need to be thinned and spaced for the best yield.
