Before planting a gardenExamine the available space available to determine what type of plants to plant. There are different types of gardens for houses and apartments. Research the options a bit and choose the one that suits you best.
Once it is ready:
- Choose plants. If you do not know which ones to choose, go to a garden shop with your family so everyone can help you choose the type of plants, flowers or fruits that works best with your home.
- Set a budget to control spending purchase of materials
