Backyard gardening is growing in popularity every year. Many homeowners who never before considered a garden are now taking up spades, shovels, and watering cans in order to reap the benefits that go along with creating and tending a garden. Gardening is not only a way to create something beautiful for people and animals to enjoy, it is a practical way to provide the family with fresh and nutritionally superior produce. Gardening also offers many health benefits that include increased strength and stamina, decreased stress, and improved flexibility.
Gardening without a Backyard
If you live in an apartment, condo, or other small space, though, you may feel that gardening is not a possibility. How can gardening be accomplished when there is no backyard in which to plant? Apartment dwellers can still reap the benefits of gardening because it can be done on a smaller scale. Container gardening allows you to design and grow beautiful landscapes in miniature that can be easily maintained on a balcony, next to a sunny window, or in a window box.
