Whether you live in the city or out in the suburbs with a little more outdoor space, there are so many fun ways to create a personal garden to suit any setting! Using Metal Garden Beds, AquaTerra can help clients create a cool, artistic approach to their own garden – and it’s easier to set up than you may think.
Easy steps to setting up your own garden:
- Select a Location: A sunny spot in your yard will almost always work best. Try to pick a spot that gets at least 6 hours of full sun a day.
- Bed Set up: We set up our metal garden beds by clearing the ground first. You’ll want to remove any existing ground vegetation and break up the ground/soil for better drainage. After putting your garden beds in place, fill the beds with dirt about a 1/2 to 2/3 of the way up, then top off with a mixture of organic potting soil and compost. Mix well for best results.
- Plan and plant: The last step is the most fun – planting! First, find out which plants grow best in your area during the season in which you would like to plant. Local nurseries will have some seedlings already started that you can plant right in the ground. Of course, you will have more options if you are willing to grow from seed and Seed Savers Exchange is a great online resource! Just follow the instructions on how deep to plant the seeds, the optimal timing for planting and water as directed and watch your plants flourish.
