Home Gardening can be a beneficial pastime for you to destress in between work with the bonus of reaping homegrown fruits and vegetables that you have the pleasure of planting yourself.

Here are 7 different types of home gardens you can cultivate at home:

Kitchen Garden: Also known as vegetable gardens, these gardens can reduce your monthly vegetable buying expenses. What you get is fresh vegetables at half the price grown either in a small balcony or in a huge backyard. Colorful pots and pebbles strewn here and there add that touch of aesthetics. 

 

Flower Garden

This type can be your riot of color and fragrance. Different types of annuals and perennials will need different degrees of sun, shade, moisture and care. Extensive research will give you the answers you seek. Ornamental benches and sculptures will add a new dimension to complement your taste and sophistication.

Tire Garden

Old and recycled tires can make excellent flower beds that can be used to plant herbs, small flowers, and vegetables that do not root deeply. These are typically outdoor gardens. Paint the tires in different colors to add that style and aesthetics.

Container Garden

Container gardens are ideal for small spaces. The containers can be anything from small barrels to pots and can find their way anywhere from your front porch to your balcony. Size matters. For instance, vegetables need troughs while herbs may be planted in smaller pots. You can also try your hand in Bonsai that can be planted in small barrels. Proper water drainage is necessary for healthy growth. Bring in variety with differently painted and differently sized containers.

Balcony Garden

If you live in an apartment with a small balcony you might want to opt for growing micro-herbs in hanging pots to save space. Don’t cramp the balcony with too many plants. Alternate the colors of flowers with the plants and add a single sculpture that will stand out to make your balcony garden look more special. 

Terrace/Rooftop Garden

As the name suggests, your room or terrace is spacious enough for you to consider planting an entire garden in it. The flowers and plants obviously get the best of both – sunshine and rain. A drip irrigation system can be useful during sunny weather and your garden will do the important job of regulating temperatures. Your pet will love it too. A swing can be a great enhancement. 

Wall/Vertical Garden

This type needs open space and height to look aesthetically pleasing. The plants should not overgrow each other. Small shrubs and herbs are therefore more suitable. A drip irrigation system can sort out watering hassles. Installing sculptures on either side of the vertical garden or placing a fountain in front will enhance aesthetic appeal.

The Hummingbird LED wind chimes

It can be another creative embellishment for your garden. It lights up your garden or patio in brilliant colors. These wind chimes are easy to hang, moisture proof and come in a variety of designs such as hummingbird wind chimes, sun wind chimes, butterfly wind chimes, heart wind chimes, and dragonfly wind chimes.
