Having a green space in the house means having a corner to relax outdoors in spring and summer. The furnishings, the swings allow you to experience the garden, with the lush green lawn fully.
If plants are your passion and you love to grow fruit and vegetables, you can think of dedicating a corner of the garden to a small vegetable garden that allows you to have healthy and km 0 products directly at home.
Dedicating a piece of the garden to vegetables is not difficult, let’s see how to design and build a home garden.
Having a garden in the garden depends on the size of the exterior. In general, if you have a very large space, you can reserve it for cultivation about 10 square meters.
As for the choice of location, much depends on what you want to grow, but in any case, it is essential to have a flat, drained soil rich in organic substances that will guarantee the growth of healthy and luxuriant vegetables.
In general, it is better to choose a very sunny area because most vegetables need several hours of direct sun.
Creating a garden is a fun experience, but at the same time, it takes time and effort, so protecting it is essential. This must be done, especially if we have children or pets in the house, such as cats and dogs, which certainly will not miss an opportunity to explore.
To keep vegetables safe, it is a good idea to create a fence with iron posts spaced about a meter away from each other and complete them with a sufficiently high wire mesh, but with a small passage for the passage.
The arrangement of the plants and inside the vegetable garden also plays an important role because they must be arranged in an orderly way to make them grow in the best possible way. These must be arranged in aligned rows creating a small corridor where they can pass and move freely.
The vegetables to plant are different. It depends a lot on the tastes, needs and characteristics of the soil. The important thing is that each seed is planted respecting seasonality.
Before proceeding with sowing, the characteristics of the soil must be checked. Just touch it and we can understand that if we cannot create a ball, it means that it is still sandy and therefore, we must add organic substances.
If, on the other hand, it remains compact, it is too clayey and therefore, the organic substances must rebalance the soil.
When it crumbles, after being hit hard, then the soil is ready for planting. At this point, we can prepare the furrows in which the seeds will be placed.
Equipped with gloves and shovels, we can move the soil by removing stones and leveling it where necessary.
If the soil needs it, we can add fertilizer. In any case, we must create a flat area with the rake. Once this is done, we need to water abundantly to let the water get deep and after a few days, we can proceed to sow.
Irrigation should be continued even after planting vegetables. Through watering cans or a rubber hose connected to the main tap, we must water the garden in the early morning or late afternoon when the sun is not high so as not to damage the plants.
This is how a garden grows in front of your house.
