Who doesn’t love the simple colors of the rainbow? It may seem difficult to achieve a rainbow garden. After all, they are small pieces of art in themselves! But, it’s very easy to build and plant a rainbow garden. You’re just going to need to do some research, have time, patience, and a little creativity mixed in too! Today, we’ll show you how to make the best rainbow garden you’ve ever seen.
Plan Out the Design
First off, you’re going to need to plan out your rainbow garden. Come up with a design for your rainbow garden. What kind of colors do you want to place in it? It doesn’t have to be anything elaborate of specific. The easiest way to do this is to come up with a basic color scheme. Number each of the colors and decide which plants will grow best in those areas.
Planning out the color scheme for your rainbow garden just makes it easier. You can, of course, go in with just a couple of plants to start planting. However, having an idea of what you want in your garden first hand will make it less stressful to plant your garden.
Research, Research, and Fertilizer!
This is the next part in building your rainbow garden. Plants come in many different shapes, sizes, and colors. Read the labels carefully on your chosen plants to see how big they will grow. This way your rainbow garden will grow in evenly and not become too crowded. It will help to make it easier to space out your plants so when they do start growing, they don’t overcrowd the available soil space. You can even set containers down of pre-grown plants to see how your rainbow garden will look before planting.
In order to make sure your rainbow garden grows nice and strong. Be sure to add a few tablespoons of fertilizer in each hole you dig for your plants. The fertilizer will not only make sure your plants are fed, but keep them growing healthy. Be sure also to water your plants very well, so they absorb the fertilizer. Manure or compost can also act as fertilizers for your plants. Also having a rich, dark soil for your plants to grow in goes a long way to keeping them happy. You want your plants to have plenty of food to eat as they grow into your rainbow.
If you follow all of these steps, you’ll soon have a beautiful rainbow garden in your backyard! Even better, you can use any plants you desire! Building a rainbow garden can be done in a variety of ways. Some people choose to do vegetables and herbs so they can eat from their rainbow garden. Another variation is a few vegetables and flowers mixed in together for the rainbow. Another variation is simply just going out with a full blown flower garden in the shape of a rainbow. Regardless of what you choose to do, we hope you enjoy building your rainbow garden.
