1. Location for Your Backyard Garden

Finding a place in your yard can sometimes be difficult. To make the process easier and simpler, below are ideas that can help.

––––––––

1. Search for an area that does not get a lot of foot traffic and is out of the way from daily activities.

2. Areas that are not flat can be used. Yards are not perfect. However, if it is very hilly it may be hard to lay out your garden in rows. Spot gardening might be an option. Serious consideration is necessary.

3. If pets, such as dogs or cats roam freely, a temporary and inexpensive fence may be necessary to keep them from eating or destroying your crop.

4. Find an area where the dirt drains well. This means that water will not puddle on the surface of the ground for any length of time after a rain or watering.

5. Unless a long hose is available, keeping the garden location near your home may make it easier for you to tend. Carrying water containers a short distance in the hot summer months can be difficult. Lugging them further than that can be simply dreadful. Enjoying your garden experience is very important.

6. If there are trees in the backyard, locate your garden as far away from them as possible. Even if this is done, tree roots can extend outward enough from their trunks that they can still soak up the water and nutrients that your vegetable plants need.

Many times, the roots can be seen partially sticking out of the ground. A maple tree is an example of this. Sometimes they cannot be seen at all.

After locating a possible place for the area for your garden water the ground for a few minutes. Wait an hour to see how moist or dry the soil is.

If it is hard and dry, the roots might be absorbing the water to where it may not be the best place to locate your garden.

7. Areas that give your garden plants at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight is necessary. Trees have a tendency to shade portions of your yard. This blocks the benefits of the sun. Without enough light your wonderful plants will not produce as they should. They will hardly grow and become spindly.

––––––––

Pay attention to what shade hits what parts of your yard at different times of the day. Leaves and bark can cast shadows of shade in surprising places.

8. If your yard is bothered by rabbits, deer or other wildlife, enclosing your garden with a fence may help keep them from nibbling or destroying your plants.

2. The Soil (preparation and nutrients)

If your garden area is large then renting a tiller might be considered. This loosens the dirt so that the plants or seeds can be easily sown or
