1. Re-think Before Releasing House Plants into Your Garden

You probably have had a cute little ficus tree forever, and it hasn’t really changed much since the day you took it home. If you plant it into your garden, it will become a monster. Its roots will grow and expand so substantially that it might crack your home’s foundation. if you really want to plant it out in the soil, you will have to put in extra work—install a root barrier, and trim it regularly to avoid cracking driveways, sidewalks and patios.

2. Think About Your Plants’ New Home

If you are going to move your pot plants from your apartment to a backyard garden, you need to introduce them to it slowly. To avoid the shock, a plant that has been living inside where there was not much sunshine should be introduced to the sunshine and put outside a few hours a day to start with, then slowly easing into a full day.

3. Make Sure There is Enough Space

Each plant takes room for roots to grow. Big plants take more room than smalls ones, so it is very important that you should do some research how big grow, and how much space it needs.

4. Let There Be Light and Shade

5. Don’t Plant Everything

You have it doesn’t mean you have to plant it. If you plant everything you have or can think of, your backyard garden is going to a messy mixture of everything.

6. Test the Plant Layout

How do you test the plant layout? You can leave the plants in the dirt before you actually plant them. Leave them there for a day or 2 and take a little walk around the garden. This will help you see if you really like your layout and understand the idea of how the plants are responding to the environment. I have one suggestion, put plants in groups and use rock retaining walls to frame them. That is a tip for a beautiful garden.
