Constructing a garden can be rewarding both mentally and physically because installing a garden involves our minds and bodies. With our minds we envision what we want and then we put together a plan and with our bodies, the actual work is carried out so we are exercising our brainpower by putting it to work along with our bodies.

Another benefit of constructing a garden is reaping the rewards of our hard work, sitting back and enjoying our accomplishments whether it be a vegetable or herb garden or maybe a flower garden but whatever garden we choose we can reap the fruits of our labor.

My childhood experience

As a child, this was my experience when constructing my first garden and watching each day as my veggies mature. I was proud and did my best each day to ensure that my plants were well taken care of. I always planted a spring garden.

When to plant a garden

This question has been asked by so many people because if the truth could be told we want to succeed and not fail after we would have worked so hard. There are so many types of gardens and base on those garden types this question can be addressed. For example, spring gardens which include vegetables, fruits herbs, flowering plants, etc.. are planted during this time of the year because plants that fall in this category perform at their best and therefore make a great choice to plant in this season.

Then there are the winter gardens that are so beautiful with their snow-covered plants. While spring plants fall sleep or go dormant at this time of the year winter plants are alive and blooming.

So this question should be base on which plants are actively growing during each season.

The four-season as we know is Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter. Each season has 3 months so base on this we can decide when to plant our garden taking into consideration those plant groups that are actively growing during these seasons.
