So you have picked out what type of garden you will have, what the location will be, and what kind of fertilizer you need. Now it is time to start choosing your garden environment. First, choose what your garden barriers will be. Determine what will separate your garden from the rest of the world. Next, choose the decorations and support for your plants. Some kind of metal mesh is usually necessary to keep your plant standing up. You also will want to choose how to arrange all the plants in your garden and how much soil and fertilizer to buy.
In getting your garden started, choosing a border is actually a fairly important step. For many people, having a garden is a fairly aesthetic ordeal even though it might not actually affect the well-being of the plants. So you may want to choose between wood and metal. Stack up boards around the perimeter of your garden, and give it a rather nice cabin look. You can get some cheaper metal lining with medium difficulty installation at your local home improvement store in case you’re looking for a more modern look.
It can be a little bit more challenging to find something nice-looking to support your plants. A short metal pole can work well sometimes, but for plants like tomatoes, you will need a wire mesh for it in order to pull itself up on.

Buy it at the store and add a few bags just so you can replenish the supply if it compresses or runs out. You might even want to add a few inches of depth to the original recommendation if you live in an area where the ground is rough, dry, and barren of nutrients.
The more important thing to the success of your garden is arranging the plants. It is not about feng-shui thing, but some plants might hog all the water and leave the other plants high and dry, depend on your waterin,. Some plants are more aggressive in collecting water and have longer roots. It will quickly hijack the water supply for itself and choke out the other plant if you place one of these plants next to a plant with weaker, shorter roots.
The placement isn’t the only important thing about a garden. There are many other factors that take a longer time to be considered and could change the outcome of your garden even though they might not seem very significant. So use reference (the library, the internet, and magazines) to look into some of the factors if you’re working on building
