  1. Choose a Site
    The most important thing to remember is that you should choose a site that will have enough room to accommodate all of your gardening needs. The more time you spend at your garden, the more successful and happy you’ll be.
  2. Select Your Plants
    If you’re new to planting, or even experienced gardening, there are some plants that will make it easier for you to get started than others. Here are some of the best plants to start with:
  3. Choosing Tools
    You can spend a small fortune on gardening tools, so make sure you only buy what you need. Some of the more useful things to have in your garden are gloves, a trowel, a watering can, and pruning shears. You may also want to have a plastic hose if you’ve got an area that’s hard or impossible to reach.
  4. Improve Your Soil
    The next thing to do is improve the soil in your garden plot so that it’s healthy for plants to grow in. Here are some of our favorite methods for doing this:
  5. Mow Your Grass
    The grass around your house is growing, and if you don’t let it grow back, you’re going to be spending a lot of time and money on that lawn. There’s only one solution for this problem: mow the grass! Don’t wait until the end of summer to cut your grass, though. This will cost you more in gas and money than if you do it early on in the spring or fall.
  6. Plant Annual Flowers
    Annual flowers are plants that bloom one time and then stop growing. These plants are great for beginners because they can tolerate drought, heat, and cold. They’re also easier to care for than perennials and can give you a lovely spring show, even if you’re a beginner!
  7. Plant Perennials
    Perennial plants are those that will grow from the ground all the way up to twelve inches in height. They have roots to help them grow deeper into your soil every year, so they need less maintenance than annuals do. They can be more difficult to care for as well, but because of this they would be a good choice for someone who has more experience gardening.
