What is the garden for?
Knowing what the purpose the garden will have is the foundation of any garden project. Is it for growing fruits and vegetables? Do you plan to use it in order to bring color to your yard? Are you having a gazebo built and the garden is going to accentuate the path to it? Perhaps what you are looking for is to have the scent of flowers surround your property? All of these purposes require very different layouts for the garden in question.
What is the current grade of your soil?
Depending on what you are looking to cultivate, the soil will need to be a certain grade. It is important to test the soil of your property to see what needs to be added.
Is there enough light for a garden?
Depending on the plants you are looking to grow, you will need more or less sunlight. To achieve the right amount of sun you may need to change the placement of your garden or remove obstacles which are preventing adequate sun access.
These are only a few of the consideration which we here at Arroyo Lawn Care And Snow LLC take into account when designing a garden.
