Never take for granted the basics. Where you decide to place your garden should matter first. The nature of the soil, the location’s exposure to sunlight, and watering options should be considered. You may purchase topsoil to ensure sufficient nutrients for your starter plants. Determine whether the soil in your lawn is healthy enough to grow plants in them. For newly planted seeds, make sure to water them regularly. Moisten the soil but do not soak them. Once or twice a week of watering is fine, as long as you make sure that the soil gets enough water. For hot seasons, make sure to water them more often or the plants will really start to wilt.

If you have a small lawn, make sure to plant your flowers with decent amount of space. Use the area to your advantage without putting the plants too close to each other. They might end up fighting over nutrients and resources when they start to grow. Start with low-maintenance flowers, vegetables, or herbs too. This should not stop you from choosing which plants to tend but choosing low-maintenance plants can help you begin gardening at an easier pace. Do not also forget to label your plants and categorize them. Training yourself to have a system in preparation for a possibly bigger selection of plants or a larger garden space.

Hanging baskets may also be useful without taking too much space. Make sure that your baskets and plants are located where sunlight is not blocked while it is still protected from harm.
