A well planned hydroponic garden of your dreams is a place of freedom from stress and strains of your everyday life.
Actually, it is a place where the garden of your dreams can come true. Planning a new hydroponic dream garden could be as a result of movement to a new home with an outdoor space. Sadly, this means that you have to re-plan an existing garden designed and planted by someone else, especially if the garden does not meet expectations, or come up with a fresh plan for an entirely new garden
Creating your dream garden begins with a good garden plan that is inspired by ideas generated from garden tours, ideal landscape pictures and childhood backyards. In order to come up with a viable dream garden plan, it is very vital to make considerations on how you are going to utilize the available space. To get you started, here are some of the tips that will surely help you.
Decide on the layout/theme
The theme (layout) of your hydroponic garden is actually the first thing you should consider while planning your garden. The garden area can take either a formal or a casual arrangement.
Also, you may consider a contemporary water rise garden, a cottage garden or a Hydroponic Garden. Do not forget to incorporate other essentials like a rubbish bin, clothesline, garden shed and a water tank in your garden layout. Ensure that there is a uniform continuity of your garden furniture’s’ theme and that of your garden.
Please do not forget the “inside option”. Hydroponics lends itself very well to a productive inside garden of dreams.
Choose the plants that match with your expectations
This is one of the most important ideas you should stress as you design your dream garden. It is very vital that you choose the plants that that will deliver exactly the expected results, for instance, whether you require plenty of sun, privacy or shade. Are you looking for fruits and vegetables, flowers, etc. Choosing the best plants will add value to your garden.
A well planned garden should age slowly without overpowering your property, a consequence of poor plant choice. The most overwhelming experience is that of having to make the right choice of plants to grow in your garden, therefore be ready to consult at your local garden center for advice.
Leave enough space for movement
In the modern day and age, sofas, coffee tables and arm chairs are not confined, particularly to the sitting room anymore.
The outdoor setting of these items has made gardens one of the most comfortable places to relax and entertain your guests. So, if you love outdoor dining setting, then it is important for you to leave enough room to allow unobstructed maneuvering of chairs and guests. For instance, you will need to have at least 3-4 feet around the table.
Choose furniture and accessories wisely
When choosing the right furniture for your garden, ensure that the style and designs chosen should match with your indoor furniture. This means that you should take the decorative touches on your indoor furniture to the outdoors because it doesn’t make any sense for you to be a contemporary traditionalist indoors and have a set of contemporary furniture outdoors. Also, the style of your accessories like floor rugs should extend outdoors as well.
These tips must give you a good hydroponic garden plan that’s undoubtedly a replica of your dream garden. However, other things like drainage, carports and garages, quality pavers, rubber mats and extra lighting might transform you dream garden completely. Consider your family as it may affect the layout and positioning of plants in your garden.
And by all means consider hydroponics if your looking for healthy produce for you and your family.
