Though the size of your garden is important, your choice of garden furniture and pathways and proper placement of plants are equally important to creating an attractive garden.

Here are a few tips to caring for your garden and keeping it attractive.

Before you plant vegetable seedlings or any other plant, you have to prepare your soil first. Clean your garden. Utilize the leaves, branches, and lawn clippings of your garden by renting a shredder and using them again to serve as fertilizer to your lawn. Create a compost pile in a sunny area of your garden. Ensure to add a layer of soil over your waste products. Be sure to read instructions on the tags of the plants that you have bought regarding how much shade or sun they should receive. Choose a good spot in your garden and create a soil bed. Keep in mind that you do not really have to dig very deep because you might create a root rot or choke your plant. If you will be planting a tree, you have to clear the area surrounding it.

Another useful garden tip that you can apply is to have your plants placed in an area that will allow you to check your lovely garden view from your dining room or living room window. You can have a vegetable patch grown on your backyard while a Japanese maple should be planted somewhere that will let you view it from your dining room or patio. Make a pathway starting from the entrance of your home going towards your driveway. Proceed to plant some flowering trees or shrubs on both sides.

You can also make a landscape with a few rocks and plants in place and then choose an ornamental statue to highlight this area. Do not forget to keep your plants protected from rabbits and other animals that can destroy them. You can plant nectar-fresh flower so you can attract both hummingbirds and butterflies to it. You may hang some feeders outside of your solarium if you have one to watch some birds feed.

Lastly, when creating a garden, make sure to make plans ahead. Do not be tempted to plant too many shrubs and tress that will outgrow the entire space of your garden and will make it look more crowded. Find flowers and plants that you can contain in the space that you set aside for them.
