Planting flowers can enhance the beauty of your lawn and provide a colorful landscape in your garden. But if you are new to planting flowers, it can be a bit overwhelming to know where to begin, what flowers to plant, how often to water flowers, and how to maintain your garden. Luckily, you don’t have to be an expert to plant flowers and embark on gardening.
Where Do I Begin?
With a few simple goals in mind, a little motivation, and a little hard work, planting flowers can be a rewarding experience.
First, select an area of your lawn or yard where you would like to plant flowers. Take a picture of the area (on your cell phone) and bring with you when picking out flowers.
Next, visit your favorite gardening center and purchase some flowers, keeping size, color and how much sun the flowers need. Try to select colors that will compliment your home. Ask the gardening experts lots of questions while you there, especially if you’re not sure about which plants to purchase for the different areas of your garden around your house. In addition, you will need to estimate how many plants to purchase based on the size of the area where you will be planting.
Weeding and Preparing the Ground/Soil
After purchasing your flowers and supplies, get excited and ready to do some planting! First, you need to do a little preparation. Is the area you want to plant flowers full of weeds or old mulch? If so, first, clear the area where you will be planting of any weeds, and rake the area a bit to remove any old mulch and debris.
If necessary, line up your flower plants along side where you are planning on planting them, so you can get an idea of how far apart to plant each one.
