GARDEN: Health Benefits of Creating a Backyard Garden
A garden is an organized area, typically outdoors, dedicated to the cultivation, displaying, and appreciation of various types of flora and fauna. The single attribute defining a wild garden, other than aesthetic appeal, is direct control over the growth of the plants. A garden may include both synthetic and natural materials. While synthetic materials are often considered inorganic, a garden made of such materials is classified as an organic garden. Some types of garden also involve growing organic vegetables.
Organic gardening is the practice of planting and cultivating plants in their natural environment with little or no external intervention. Gardening in its natural environment is often referred to as “garden-land”, which contrasts with “crop-land”, where crops are grown commercially for profit. Both classes of gardens share similar characteristics; however, organic gardens are generally much larger in size and require more effort to maintain. They provide a healthy, natural environment, which is essential for plant growth.
One important characteristic of a garden planted with organic matter is that it needs all the sunlight that the plants require. Growing plants that need as little as possible sunlight is possible by using efficient landscaping techniques and appropriate planting of trees or shrubs. Gardening by means of artificial lighting is another available option. However, artificial lighting will not provide the intensity necessary for full spectrum lighting, which is the most effective way to ensure adequate sunlight for plants. It is necessary to provide a sufficient amount of natural sunlight for gardening to be successful.
A gardener should be aware of the variety of flowers that exist in a given area, and the colors of those flowers depend on the type of flower and the region of the country. Colorful annuals, deciduous flowers, and perennials are a part of the gardening vocabulary, and they are able to add color to even an empty space. Gardeners can be successful by creating visual balance in a garden by planting flowers of contrasting colors. A garden of contrasting colors can make the area seem more alive and interesting to visitors.
Planting bushes and trees is an important part of any GARDEN because these elements provide good shelter and privacy to the garden. Having bushes and trees also provide additional grass, which makes it easier to mow the lawn and keep the plants trimmed. When planning a GARDEN, it is important to plan the entire landscape, including walkways, planting areas, walkways, and planting beds. An attractive landscape garden will make the yard appear larger than it is, especially if it is surrounded by shrubs and plants.
Gardening is the enjoyment of growing things, whether they are flowers vegetables, fruits, or herbs. Gardening is not limited to a specific season or time of the year, but can be an ongoing activity year-round. Gardening can be an invigorating and therapeutic hobby that produces healthy plants and beautiful gardens. The best gardening experience combines relaxation, physical exercise, and intellectual stimulation.
