Gardening for your home

There is a massive amount of information available as to what to plant, where and how to plant and the like available on the net these days. What I will be aiming to do is provide some information on how to do it your self in the fields of garden lighting and garden irrigation.

One of the first gardening tools you will need

One of the first things you will need is a shovel. the can be used for digging, cutting roots, levering, and a host of other uses in a garden.
A fork is useful for breaking up dirt, spreading woodchip mulch and compost and even aerating the lawn.

wander through your garden

As you wander through your garden, you will find that there are certain places that are ideal to linger in and ponder.
Such places are ideal spots for benches or chairs and a side table. Lets not forget the aesthetics of practical things such as benches and chairs, you may want to add a decorative garden bench to any area in your garden that is a bit bland or in need of a focal point.

setting up sprinklers

If set up correctly, each type of plant can have the appropriate amount of water delivered to it every time. What about that lawn, ever tried to water that by hand?! Worse still, have you ever set up your sprinkler only to forget it on (some times for hours!)? An automated system will most likely end up saving you money in the long term.

lights

Whether your "patch" consists of a small courtyard or a large garden, outdoor lights can be creatively used to maximise your "out side room". This can range from lighting trees, shrubs, steps, paths, patios, ponds, pergolas, driveways etc to make your garden come to life, in your own unique style.
Paying for someone to create your own nocturnal paradise can be very prohibitive.

Garden and outdoor tools

When starting a garden, or "moving" into an established one, you will need some tools in order to do the job. Upon first inspection, there are all sorts of tools out there, what do you buy first and what do you really need?

Out Door Furnature

Many gardens will provide more than one environment or opportunity from which to sit and enjoy it from. So, how do you
decide how to use a given spot?
