Let’s Build A Garden – Planting. So, it would seem that we have reached the key guide on planting at a very opportune time. Garden centres may be opening later this week. Hurrah. So if you have been scheduling your “Lets Build a Garden” project week by week we should just about be ready.
So, planting – sounds easy. But a little help might be welcome. So, everything is ready, the hard landscaping is done, the beds are all beautifully raked and you have a clear plan for what’s going where.
Help & Resources
Thankfully, – there is plenty of help available – from the RHS, the BBC and from our own website and blog articles. Specifically, these look at colours and the best plants for different soils. As well as different locations and the actual practice of putting plants in the ground.
Roofs, Wildflowers & Shrubs
Of course, it’s not just about ground cover. There are roofs to consider as well as wildflowers, sedum shrubs and flowers. And that’s before we even think about vegetables….
We looked at boundaries as part of the initial audit. Now your project might need new trees and hedges. Alternatively, you might have an extensive roof and want to make the most of them – again there is help.
Moreover, there are options to include sedum, on your roofs. What about a sedum roof on your bin store or bike shed? On the other hand nobody says you have to have a lawn – what about sedum as groundcover?
Furthermore, have you thought about how old your plants will be? Are you looking or mature trees and shrubs? Conversely, can you wait a while before everything fills the space?
