I love the huge tree that is right in front of our balcony. If you have the space, add trees to your garden. Here is a collaborative post on introducing trees into your garden.
Trees can be a wonderful addition to any garden, but that is not to say that they are without difficulty or danger. If you are thinking of bringing some trees into your garden, you will want to make sure that you are fully aware of all of the ins and outs before getting started. Planting out trees in the garden can be surprisingly difficult and complex. It is something which you need to research thoroughly if you are to get it right.
In this article, we are going to take a look at some of the major things you need to be aware of and do if you are to make trees a bigger part of your garden. By focusing on these things first and foremost, you should find it considerably easier to introduce trees into your garden and make it a success.
Start Off In Pots
In most cases, you will probably want to start growing your trees in pots if you are going to keep them healthy and alive long enough to plant them out in the garden soil itself. This is important for a number of reasons. There is the fact that when you have your trees in pots to begin with you can help to control the level of nutrition they get, which means you can give them a stronger start in life.
This is a good idea to take on board even if you are buying trees which are already fairly mature. It helps to get them used to your garden before you plant them out. It’s a simple case of getting hold of some large plastic plant pots and putting them in there first, before then turning them out into the garden soil. You will find you have healthier trees which last much longer if you do it this way.
Don’t Go Overboard
It can be all too easy to find yourself getting a little carried away with how many trees you are planting. That can mean that you end up with a garden which is far too crowded. That can lead to all sorts of other problems, such as a lack of light in the garden, or each tree not getting enough nutrition and water. Make sure you start off small, and try not to overfill your garden with trees in the beginning. Remember that you need to allow space for each tree to grow considerably, so the more space you leave between them, the better off each of them will be in the long run.
Go For A Variation
The more of a variety of trees you have in your garden, the more likely it is that you will be happy with how it looks. Having more variety means that your garden will be much more diverse and interesting. You will find it a lot more pleasing to the eye in general. So, make sure that you are aiming for a good variety of trees first, so that you can be happy with what you end up with.
