Step 2: Evaluate Your Site
Every successful garden needs a thoughtful site evaluation. The following list will help you get started:
What type of soil does the site have (sandy, loam, clay loam, clay)? The soil type will determine (1) how to prepare the soil for planting, (2) how to water the garden, (3) what type of plants are best suited to the site.
- Where is the sun and shade around the site? How does it change throughout the year? This will determine the plants best suited for specific areas of the garden.
- What about the climate of your location? It will influence your plant selection. Group plants according to climate zone preference.
