3 Things to consider when converting yard to garden

By Cocoon Raw

I started with a small, narrow yard. I wanted to make it special. 

I call it the secret garden.

So the first step is to PLAN!

Create a list of your goals; trees, plants, flowers, food you want to grow.

Next, consider sun vs. shade.

Observe the different zones of your yard at all seasons and track the sun pattern to select the plants that will be best for full sun, shade, or partial shade.

Finally, prepare your soil.

Prepare your soil, amend and build the beds with the correct soil and compost in order to make it flourish.
