Succulent Gardens

With over 400 species of succulent plants (those with water in the leaves, like aloes), succulent gardens are becoming more and more popular, both side-yard succulent gardens and potted succulent gardens. Succulent plants are the “camels” of the plant world, in that they store water—so they can go long periods of time without additional liquids.
 
Succulent gardens are easy to create and maintain, and they give a great modern look to any home. Lots of different succulents (whether it is in a potted plant, which is common, or in the ground) together can create textures, colors and patterns, which can add to the décor of your overall landscape or room.
 
The most popular succulent plants are Jade plants, Sansevieria, and Kalanchoe. Other common types include: agaves, aloes, bromeliads, euphorbias, and hens and chicks. Succulent gardens are easy to make, your can have your own succulent garden in a short amount of time—it makes a nice weekend project.
 
For a weekend project creating a succulent garden, you can follow these steps:
 
1. Start out by picking up a shallow and wide garden pot.
2. For the soil, you can use cactus soil (found at Lowes, Home Depot, and most home stores) packed in nicely. You can also use a lighter pot, in which case you should layer packing peanuts on the bottom of the pot until about halfway, and then pack soil in the rest of the pot. In either case, you should fill the pot until it is one inch from the top.
3. Pick your succulents. There are so many succulents to choose from, and for the most part, they are all very affordable, so take your time while choosing, and pick ones that you feel you will enjoy. While purchasing them, keep in mind you will need about four succulents for each five-inch area.
4. When putting them in the pot, dig deep with your fingers, and then put the succulent in the pot. After it is in, cover the hole with soil.
5. To add a little...

Weekend Project: Spruce Up Your Garden

One of the things that most of us don’t have a lot of is time. Fortunately there is a way to makeover your garden or create one succulent in just one weekend project. Covering four basic areas—garden cleanup, mulch, shrubs and lawn—you can turn your garden into a luscious haven for those who see it. Spend two days doing the improvement, one job during each morning, and during each afternoon, without overdoing it. You can always modify this list, but doing it in the right order saves time without exhausting all of your energy.
 
The morning’s workload is heavier than the afternoon, which is great because you are more energetic in the morning and the temperatures are a lot more comfortable. You should always start with the biggest job, usually having to do with flowerbed and vegetable and herb/vegetable gardens.
 
This is normally referred to as “garden cleanup”. You should lie out the tarp on the ground close to a wheelbarrow. This is where you will put everything you will throw away once your done. Then you should yank out all the annuals that are depleted. This can include vegetables and herbs that have gone to seed, many annual flowers, and weeds.
 
When pulling them out, reach from the bottom, so you are sure to pull it out from the roots. When doing this you should make three discard piles: one for ordinary plant debris (compost), diseased or infected plants, and nonorganic material (i.e. plastic plant bags for the recycle bin). Then you can cut down perennial plants, as well as flower stalks, to just a few inches. This is the first step to having a succulent garden. After you take a break from the morning’s work, your next step should be to take care of the mulch and do lighter tasks so you are not worn out. Cautiously rake the flowerbeds for a finished look.
 
The next day you could start with shrub care. Trim, clean up, and water your shrubs, getting rid of eyesores and an...
