Build a Garden Bed

Brought to you by Lowe's Creative Ideas

Ready to get your garden started? Here are 3 tips in 30 seconds that'll help you build those garden beds.

  1. Plan out your garden ahead of time. Group plants with similar colors and put small plants in the front and taller plants in the back.
  2. Location, location, location. Different plants like different amounts of sunlight, so choose your plants based on the amount of sun your garden bed will get. Shade. Part shade. Full sun...check the plant tag for light, watering and spacing recommendations.
  3. Mix it up. Use both perennials and annuals in your garden. Perennials are the comeback kids, returning year after year. And while annuals are one-hit wonders, their short time in your garden will provide beautiful pops of color.

There you have it. 3 tips in 30 seconds. Now get out there - It's time to spring!
