Owning a green vibrant garden thriving with fragrant blooms and fresh vegetables turns to be an important part of a dream life for many modern people especially those who habitat in urban areas.
Planting, in this fast-changing and uncertain world, serves as a soul-soothing activity and healthy living method, which is a perfect option for our leisure time. Whether you have a big family or live alone, or no matter your yard is big or not, you can always gain pleasure, peace, and satisfaction from gardening. After all, no one would reject cool green shades, fresh organic vegetables, and bright flowers, especially when they are cultivated from small seeds by your hands.
As for experienced gardeners, planting can be pure enjoyment, which seems that everything is under their control, however, for green hands, sometimes, it is not just fun. Those messy tools, jumble plants caused by unreasonable space arrangement, and pain in the back and knees may probably combat planters’ initiative. Thanks to the brilliant invention of planting supplies that greatly relieve planters’ unpleasant experiences.
Here, I have three must-have gardening supplies to recommend which can effectively save you many twists and turns on the way to build your dream garden.
Strictly speaking, a flower stand is not a garden supply as it is usually placed indoors or at least not exposed in a roofless environment. However, it is absolutely a magic instrument that can transform your study, balcony, living room, or anywhere you want into a rainforest garden.
The very basic function of a flower stand is to accommodate pot plants. Generally, they are designed in layered structures that can house more than one or even dozens of your plants in a compact and artistically designed space. With flower stands, you can arrange your lovely plants in different sizes and with various natures in a more scientific way. For example, plants that prefer the sunshine environment or feature long drooping branches can be placed on higher layers; while those that can only thrive in cooler and damper situations can be arranged on lower levels.
Besides, flower stands are perfect choices for room décor. This point found its full expression in interior designers’ works. The simplest reason lies in that the smart application of a flower stand riches in layers can organize and display plants in different sizes and types in a compact and layered look, adding the layering to the house, making it looks tidier, meanwhile effectively improving the space utilization rate. A vivid green wall composed of various plants can serve as not only an ornamental soothing vibe generator to transform your space into your private rainforest garden, but also as a physical partition to provide visual privacy to a certain space if needed.
While a more underlying reason why flower stands are necessary is that humans are animals in essence that we would instinctively feel healthier, happier, and more relaxed to live in an environment full of fresh green leaves and bright flowers.
Garden Potting Bench
A garden potting bench serves as a combination of gardening tools collector, tools hanging shelf and operation station for making planter nutrient soil, pruning branches, repotting, changing soil, etc. It usually features great storage capacity that can house all your gardening tools in a fixed place orderly and methodically, so that you don’t need to make a thorough search indoors and outdoors to get that badly needed scoop.
What’s more, many garden potting benches are equipped with sinks (which I strongly recommend contain when choosing a bench) for mixing nutrient soil, potting, transplanting and weeding your plants without getting the dirt everywhere. After all, it is usually not that pleasant to sweep the yard floor after a sore stooping down work.
In addition, it is worth mentioning that a garden potting bench is usually designed at waist height to allow the planter to work cozily standing up. Such design releases users who have back or knee diseases from bending or squatting, and can effectively keep planters away from aching pain in the back caused by long-time bending work in their garden.
With such a dedicated garden working station, you can enjoy pure pleasant brought by a peaceful and clean garden work, which will make you feel extra ritualistic even you are just repotting a Scindapsus.
Raised Garden Bed
Raised garden beds may not unfamiliar to many people, however, they are very likely to be underestimated. Some basics look so simple that many people choose to DIY. Indeed, the structure of them is just that visualized as you can see, 4 short wooden sidewalls, no bottom (some models), without any other secrets. While this is perhaps why you will feel that they are so magic after you are fully aware of their true values.
The most obvious advantage of a raised planting box is that it can overcome some “congenitally deficient” of the original soil in your garden. For example, if the soil is not ideal, like sandy, Ph inappropriate, infertile, or too many harmful pests and weed seeds contained, then it can be more efficient and economical to directly cultivate your plants in a raised garden box instead of planting after you replacing or treating the soil. Because anyone who has planting experience would know that it may spend even 1-2 years and countless efforts can you improve the soil to an arable standard.
Another advantage lies in that a planting box can effectively improve your yard’s space utilization rate. To be more specific, a plant box with two or more separated spaces or a layered structure allows you to cultivate various vegetables or flowers with different soil requirements in a compact space without needing to plant in several separated spaces.
Importances Of A Garden Beds
What’s more, the existence of raised garden beds is also good news for gardeners who have back or knee diseases. Waist-height planting boxes are specially designed for keeping planters away from pain in the back or knees after long-time bending down.
Besides, in consideration of some plants that are not suitable for keeping outside all year round due to weather reasons, some planting boxes are provided with rolling wheels for convenient movement.
