The Chicago weather is finally warming up, and it’s time to put your flower garden plans into action. May is planting season for a variety of native plantings and other flowers, and being able to grow them well takes some strategy and effort on your behalf.

So if you are looking to plant a flower garden in your Geneva area home, there are some methods you should take into consideration in order to grow healthy flowers. This is a great way to turn your home into the ideal place for a stay-cation.

A Beautiful Flower Garden You Will Love

Turn the soil – Chances are your soil has sat and hardened over time. Most seed or bulb packages come with a recommendation for how deep to place the seeds, which can vary from flower to flower. Use a shovel or trowel to turn and soften the soil so your flower has a better chance to grow. 

Compost – There are many great resources out there on how to compost. There are many ways to improve the quality of the soil you use to create your flower beds – manure, broken down food or coffee grounds can all help.

Consider decorative objects – A stake holding a flower basket, or decorative yard art can do a lot to beautify your flower garden. These types of objects bring a unique quality to your creation. They are simple yet effective. Next time you are at a craft sale consider some yard or garden art.

Just add water – Spillway bowls, pondless waterfalls or bubbling urns can all add a beautiful touch to your flower garden and beautify your back yard. A water feature such as these can be the touch to make your flower garden great.
