If you've been spending the winter in hibernation, it's time to dig out and get outside ... the garden of your dreams has been waiting for you!
Your yard could be your own slice of paradise, providing peace, comfort and possibly even delicious vegetables! With the weekends getting warmer, many folks want a great-looking garden or even just a fun project to keep them busy. All it takes is a little bit of loving and some guidance.
You can get some guidance from trusted brand Better Homes and Gardens' Plan-a-Garden Guide. First, you will need to sign up with the service by giving them an email address or you can sign in with Facebook. Keep in mind that this will automatically subscribe you to their email lists, but you can always unsubscribe later.
Next, you can map out your dream garden with an easy-to-use drag-and-drop planning tool. Just select a template that's similar to your house and go crazy. You can add plants, benches, fences, trees, bricks, a gazebo and just about anything else you can imagine would go in a front or back yard. Save your project or easily print it out to take to the store when you go to buy supplies.
The Better Homes and Gardens also has lots of other tips within its website, including a lengthy list of personalized garden plans for both small and large gardens, a plant encyclopedia, a garden store, as well as other tips and tricks to help keep your garden green all season long.
