Gardening Trends For Small Yard – With smaller yards, gardeners are becoming more creative in the limited space that they call their own. Gardening trends that you can incorporate into your small garden are:
– Incorporate small fruiting plants into regular landscaping
– Homes have less lawn areas
– Plant drought tolerant plant varieties
Special Considerations When Designing Your Garden – Although every family has its own special needs to consider when designing features for the garden, there are some aspects that are commonly encountered, which can pose problems. These aspects need to be given a bit of thought.
Limited space. Space may not be a problem if you have a quarter-acre plot, but for inner-city dwellers, making the most of limited space can present quite a challenge.
Who do not enjoy the sight and sounds of birds in the garden? Even in the gray of winter, our feathered friends bring you joy and happiness as they flirt playfully about the feeder bringing color and excitement to our lives. Like all wildlife, birds need reasons to be attracted to our property. Stocking a winter feeder or providing a few birdhouses or a birdbath is a good start. By adding a few basic requirements in the form of landscape plantings, we can attract and keep birds of many species close to our homes.
Providing food, nest boxes, nesting materials, water, and natural habitat can attract birds to our backyards, giving us much nicer views of them and, when done properly, making life easier for the birds.
