Re: Landscaping Maintenance Tips


What will grow well will depend on your local soil, light, climate, etc. Wander around a local garden centre and/or take in a home and garden show to see others are doing. Also, the Internet can be your friend. If you see something that catches your eye, you will have to see if it will grow in the intended location and in your climate zone. Vegetables can be finicky. It seems many either struggle or grow so well you can't give them away. First decision would be to decide what you eat then determine, again, what will grow in your area. Keep in mind most vegetables obviously ripen within a short period of time, so you need to have a plan to eat, preserve, bake, give away, etc.

In terms of landscaping, again, you can get ideas online or garden shows and do it yourself or hire a landscaper. The beauty of landscaping over blocklaying is that it is easier to do it over or change it as your tastes change or as you learn. Much depends on how much time you want to spend getting your knees dirty.

I think growing tomato in home garden is really good idea. Growing vegetables can be fun. It's a great way to spend time with children or have a place to get away and spend time outdoors in the sun.

I agree. Moreso than many vegetables, tomatoes can be susceptible to certain bugs, often need support and need the right amount of water and light at the right times. As mentioned, you also need to figure out what to do with the onslaught should your green thumb be successful. You can only eat so many a day and many people physically react to too many. My daughter and SIL grow many but 'put up' most for spaghetti sauce, etc.
