Planning a raised garden

Raised Garden BedThere are many advantages to a raised garden bed.  They can extend the growing season because they can easily be covered and the soil will warm sooner in the spring. There’s less weeds and there’s no foot traffic on them  to deal with in your garden.

They also create beautiful natural, barriers in your yard.

Here are some tips for getting the most out of your raised garden bed:

Use a barrier to prevent other plants and roots from making their way into them. You could use a commercial weed barrier, a piece of old carpet, or a thick piece of corrugated cardboard. Essentially you want you prevent your clean soil from getting filled with weeds.

Mulch the top layer. This will prevent weeds and help keep the soil from drying out. Raised beds will dry out quicker than regular garden beds

Add compost/ manure annually to add nutrients back into the soil. Soil soil will settle and get depleted as time goes on. Adding a bit of compost yearly will help mitigate the breakdown.

Plan an irrigation system. Installing a system before you plant can save you a lot of time standing around with a hose.

Cover up in winter. Soil exposed to harsh winters will break down quicker. Add a layer of mulch or cover crops (rye-grass or crimson clover) once the growing season is done.

One of the trickiest things about raised beds is knowing how much soil and mulch you need to get to fill the bed. Avoid an extra trip to your garden store and use this handy calculator to figure out how much you need. https://www.gardenlifepro.com/soil-calculator/

With a bit of planning you can build the perfect raised garden beds that will be the compliment your beautiful backyard oasis.

Landscape Trends for 2019

Now is the time to get your backyard ready for the summer season. You might have a blank canvas to work with or you’re simply tired of your old deck and need something new. The key to creating a backyard you’ll love and love inviting your friends and family to visit is making livable spaces. Creating outdoor spaces that flows from indoors to outdoors for entertaining, cooking, and relaxing that you’ll use over and over again.

Outdoor Fire Pits    

An outdoor fire pit is wonderful to relax next too and can extend your time outside by keeping you warm on chilly nights and even well into the fall.

Water Features

Who doesn’t love the sound of water in the garden? Water trickling over stones adds an atmosphere of peaceful relaxation to your space. You don’t need to build a large pond. There are many options that will add the sound of trickling water to your space so you can have a more zen space.

Quality over style

Invest in quality and natural materials. Consider how it will withstand the elements. Are there special considerations for your areas climate you should be aware of? Heavy rain, common drought, strong winds etc. Build your landscape and patio features to last. What material should you be using? Stone, brick or wood? You don’t want to rebuild them every year. If you don’t know ask an expert.

Create separate living spaces

Whatever you decide to do in your backyard build your spaces to fit your needs. Create a separate cooking space, an entertaining space, a lounging space  or a space to relax by the fire.  You don’t want to lounge next to the barbeque. Create another space where you can relax away from that.


Light your space

Lots of lighting will not only increase the attractiveness of the space but allow you to get more use out of outdoor areas. Incorporating outdoor lighting throughout your landscaping will help you maximize the use of your whole backyard.

Low Maintenance

Before you build, plant or landscape consider how much ongoing work your new outdoor feature is going to cause you.  More time enjoying your outdoor space is preferable to more time maintaining it. Don’t create an ongoing headache for yourself.
