Build garden


To arrange a garden it is necessary first of all to define if you prefer to choose plants with flowers or green plants according to personal tastes, also based on the available spaces.
Furthermore, we must consider some very important assumptions, namely:
- extension of the garden
- exposure
- type of terrain
- weather conditions
- cohabitation between different plants
- economic availability.
To make the garden varied and pleasant it is advisable to combine different types of plants, which can be either climbing plants (to cover walls or espaliers), or evergreens (to create splashes of color even during the winter months), or flowers (to brighten up the garden ).
Finally, it must be taken into account that the care of a garden requires time, constancy and economic commitment.

It is advisable never to wet the flowers directly, but only the leaves and use saucers with gravel to maintain humidity without creating water stagnations, very dangerous for the roots.
Fertilization must be done twice a year, preferably with liquid fertilizers.
