If you want to do it yourself, be prepared, working with nature, and expecting immediate results is not the most effective route to go.

Plan what you want out of your garden. Peace and tranquility? Herb and Vegetable? Attract butterflies? Low maintenance? Colour?

How big do you want your garden space? Is it framing your home? Replacing a patch of grass that won’t grow? Replacing your whole lawn? Remember, the larger the space, the more likely you will need more product in the form of soil and plants.

How do you want your garden to look in the long run? A three year plan is a good way to forsee this, as most plants reach their maturity after a 3 year period, and that is how they will look lay out. Make sure you read the size maximum growth on the plants description sheet. Lay out the long term plant growth in your garden, so the plants you choose will grow into their space with little or not adjustments.
