Gardening Without a Plan

Uncertain if you realize it but even “gardening without a plan” needs a plan. Ooops, wow! This kind of kind of gardening won’t have a ship-size plan but requires simply a little pre-thinking or pre-planning.

What are the main aspects to consider? vertical garden

Where you live
What your community statement is (condo -living? )
What is your budget?
What are your goals?
Now, what’s your plan?
Condo Gardening

In the event you are in a property or in an apartment, then your gardening might be limited to flowerpot gardening, or windowsill growing plants or patio gardening. No matter what the case, you could garden! There are ways to do this –even in apartments and even in the strictest condo properties. Ears open now?

Exclusive Home Horticulture

If you stay in a home, your own home, you might have less rules than a property has, yet, even in most areas, you have that “unspoken” rule, “green grass rules”! Never to worry, you, too, can garden. You can still have your individual space, your own style and stay right in which you are.

House Gardening

If you stay in a mansion, yes, a mansion, you can still become a personal gardener for your own space. The key to happiness is in knowing or looking at that, yes, “YOU MAY DO IT”!

What’s your message?

So, what is your neighborhood “statement” or unwritten rule? Shop around you to determine what that is. Are all the back yards bright green, no wholes in the lawn, just perfect, rectangular pieces of real or fake type grass? Are typical the houses, lean, slim, unencumbered, and just plain the same? While you look down the block, is it hard to tell one house from another? Can it look like the Stepford Girlfriends or wives live there? Really? Specifically what is the unsaid, unspoken rule of your block, of your community? Is there hope for your creative or different mind, right where you are? Yes, indeed! There is always hope. If you keep an open head, and are able to really listen to me, I’ll share my ideas about individual garden or “gardening without a plan”.

What is your plan?

Do you want your garden to look like a professional? Perform you want your space to express, “Hey, landscaper here”! Until now want your green space to say, “Wow, that’s a great deal of work”! Or do you want your garden space to state, “Welcome to my wonderful, natural garden”! Or is your concept, “No dog poop allowed”!

Are you gardening to bring attention to your cause or to your charity or to your line of work? Might Bonsai fit the master plan? Is usually your plan to have people stop, pause and slow down in this busy city? Do you garden in promoting peace? Or perhaps is outside the house saying, “I believe in God”! Do you want the neighbors or people passing by to keep on walking or to stop and pause also to take pleasure in the green space? Inquire yourself these questions and a few others and you simply might have a plan for your unplanned garden.


Could you afford the best for your garden? And/or you on a very limited budget? Is gardening part of your budget in a different way? Will be you going to expand certain plants just to don things in a food market? Are you ready to plant Rosemary, Thyme, Sage, and other herbs because you want to be capable to pick your food preparation ingredients every day — rather than shop for these things?

Budget or No Budget?

Or is your budget unlimited? Can easily you spend the money for top of the line in horticulture get ups and accessories? Are you prepared to put your money where you are and commence creating a most luxurious garden, perhaps the most magnificent garden in your whole area? Looking forwards to that?

Gardening Desired goals

Now, what is your real goal? What’s your real message? Precisely what is the “why” of your gardening?

Does your garden say, “Freedom”? Or perhaps does your garden say, “Hey, I’m fitting right in here”! Did your garden remain quiet, calm, unencumbered by whatever someone else has to say or do — about your gardening? Shopping to create and organize a mini-farm? Do you want a country environment, a natural environment or are you willing to ditch everything grass and trade it in for common sense groundcover? Do you need to mow lawn? Or do you wish to have a goat eat all the grass? The options are yours!
