My Friend's Garden

If you're thinking of growing a garden, the first thing you need to ask yourself is what you want to grow. You could be growing palm trees, flowers, herbs or vegetables. You could also grow all of them but that of course depends on the size of your lot.  No matter what type of garden you decide to grow, it is important that you read on some gardening techniques especially if you're starting to build a garden from scratch. I am not an expert but I heard a raised bed is easier to maintain.

Raised bed gardening is a form of gardening in which the soil is formed in wide beds. They can be used effectively to control erosion and recycle and conserve water and nutrients by building them along contour lines on slopes. A friend of mine started building a raised garden bed to save more space. She says raised garden beds are great for small pots of veggies and flowers. They are easy to build and if you don't really know how, there are ready-made models available. With the space that she saves, she plans to have Pomegranate trees and Fig trees. The fruits of these trees deliver a lot of health benefits but they are too expensive if you are going to buy them all the time.  Having them in her garden is a great idea.

Tomorrow, she's inviting me over to see her new garden. And if her raised bed garden is really nice, I think I'm gonna give a try too.

I love gardening! My dream is to own a house with a backyard that I can transform into a flower filled garden.
