Welcome to GardenMag.com! Gardening is a beloved pastime
for millions of people around the world. It can be a serene way to relax
the mind and a low-impact way to exercise the body. The process of gardening,
from planning use of space, laying the ground work, all the way to harvest,
or even just spending time in a sitting garden, is a true joy for the

The rules are vague when it comes to garden landscaping.
Nothing is set in stone, and the guidelines are matters of taste, rather
than rule of law. The point is to create a pleasing space to spend time
in. For some, this space consists of orderly rows of vegetables awaiting
harvest. For others, a Japanese walking garden may be preferable, complete
with trees, streams, walkways, and garden fountains. These gardens are
not meant to grow food, but rather to be a relaxing place to soothe
There are some ideas common to most gardens. Planters
are one example. Most people would agree that a garden is not a garden
without at least some living things. The notable exception would be
a rock garden, but those are much rarer than their green cousins. Planters
are traditionally made from pottery or plastic, but don’t necessarily
have to be. Nearly any object that can hold dirt can be a planter. People
have used everything from finely detailed tile enclosures to old tires
to create unique planting spaces. Some of the most creative use of planting
containers often uses a multi-tiered design, which adds a sense of depth
that can have quite a visual impact, as well as making great use of
space. The use of garden gates and garden fountains can be employed
to create the image of entering a verdant paradise filled with the musical
laughter of water.
Multi-tiered designs are also a popular method for herb
gardening. Whether built from the ground up, or designed to hang from
a hook, these planters make a maximum use of available space and can
be quite striking. An herb garden can be used to break up the visual
monotony of a vegetable garden as well. Many people find that a colorful,
multi-leveled herb garden can make an excellent “hub” from
which the rest of the garden can project like spokes. The hub can be
made even more visually appealing by centering it on other objects,
such as trees or garden fountains.
The right accessories can add a touch of whimsy to even
the most modest garden. For instance, garden fountains add movement
and the soothing sound of flowing water to a garden area. Garden gnomes
have been popular garden items for nearly a century and a half. The
garden gnome, originally a German invention, can be found all across
Europe and the Americas.
Waterfalls and garden
fountains are both popular garden accessories. They can
be a custom designed, physical feature of a garden; or can be purchased
as a one piece unit that can be place nearly anywhere. For those with
a limited amount of space, a garden window can be an excellent way to
grow herbs and other small plants.
As any gardener will tell you, anything that can make
the job easier is usually appreciated. Garden seeds, while obviously
necessary, are not easy to plant by hand. Investing in a garden seeder
can save you a lot of time and energy come planting season. They are
designed to dig, plant, bury and mark each row; all in one simple movement.
A garden wagon can be a great help with any type of landscaping. They
are by far the easiest method to move tools, or whatever else, from
one end of the yard to the other.
