Creating a garden that is simply beautiful is not as difficult as most would believe, and you can have a garden that's both beautiful and practical. Doing some planning and putting in some work will result in a relaxing place that you can really enjoy.

Remember Your Pet: It is commonly believed that you cannot have a garden if you have a pet, but this is a myth. You simply have to be more ingenious. When devising the plan for your garden, just keep your pets requirements in mind. When your pet uses your yard to relieve themselves, this will cause brown spots because of the nitrogen. You can keep this from happening by spraying the area with water or sprinkling with gypsum. Taking feces into account, you can bury it or toss it into the trash. Be sure not to pitch your pets excrement into the compost bin; because of the meat your pet eats, your fertilizer would become an unhealthy one. When setting up your garden; keep in mind that your pets will require some shade and a water source. Can Mulching Be a Good Idea: Mulching is not a requirement, but is a great addition to the garden and is very worthwhile. In order for a week to grow, it requires sunlight; mulch will keep the sun away from the seeds, so the weeds will not grow. Mulch will keep your soil hydrated longer Another advantage is that it more easily regulates temperature fluctuations of the soil, so they are more gradual and don't affect your plants. When it is cold, the plant roots are shielded from the weather and it helps prevent frost heaving. Once the ground has frozen and then warms up time after time, your plants are literally pushed up and are somewhat exposed. During the summer months, by mulching your plants, you are protecting them from the heat of the sun and as the mulch rots, it adds valuable nutrients to the soil. The list of materials you can use is vast; things such as peat moss, wood chips, hay, compost or grass clippings, and the list continues.

Creating Your Own Herb Garden: Some people prefer to plant their herbs alongside their vegetables and in some cases it is an excellent idea, especially since some herbs are natural deterrents to different kinds of insects that can harm your vegetables. However, you can just have the herb garden separate and have a large range of herbs. Herbs should be treated the same as vegetables and therefore should also be planted after all the frost has gone.

Cold weather is not good for most herbs, so they should avoid it. Herbs require minimum effort and this is why they are good and easy to grow. Also the fresher the herb the nicer it is. Again, planting your own herbs is a matter of being able to use them as fresh as possible.
