How to Plant a Pocket Garden
Whether you are just going on an outdoor vacation or want to expand your home’s living area without adding lots of expensive furniture, a portable pocket garden is a very convenient way to create your own outdoor living space. Whether you live in a condo or apartment without a lot of outdoor space or have little outdoor room, creating a small garden in your yard can be a surprisingly practical and surprising way to make your outdoors feel more open. Here are some tips on how to do it:
– Get your first ideas for the type of small garden you want before you start digging. This can help you avoid spending money on materials that you will not use or that are too big. If you are unsure of what kind of garden you want, you can go online and look at pictures of different kinds of gardens you can build yourself.
– Decide where you want your garden to be located and then dig a hole about as wide as your backyard and about one foot deeper than the level of soil. Use the hole as a foundation for your garden and make sure that it is level enough that you can walk around it without getting stumps in your feet. Make sure that your garden has plenty of drainage so that roots of plants won’t become submerged.
– Once you have your foundation made, start building your garden. Begin by planting the seeds in the holes in your garden. Don’t try to over-plant because this can cause your garden to be overcrowded or can spread unwanted roots, but be sure that you spread the seeds out and make sure that they get plenty of sun and water.
– As you plant your seeds, take care to leave at least two to three feet between plants so that your plants can receive enough sun. Also, don’t forget to water your plants every now and then to keep them from drying out. Watering your plants on an annual basis will keep them healthy and growing strong.
Creating your own little garden that can also be used year after year is a great way of increasing your home’s value. You may also find that your kids are drawn to the little animals that you plant in your garden.

Some flowers will require a little more work than others, but if you get creative and make your garden interesting, your children will love it as much as you do.
