When you know that you're ready to start a garden, you need to find the perfect spot. You might be limited to having a little container garden if space is at a premium. Finding the best garden spot is determined by the amount of sunlight the area receives, with the best option being exposure from the south. Steer clear of positioning your garden where it would receive exposure from the north unless it is your only option because this will severely hamper a success of your garden.

Using the southern site, where the sun sits warm all day, you should run the rows of vegetables north and south. Doing the work this way enables the morning sun's rays to reach the eastern side of the plants, and in the afternoon, the western side. This particular layout will help your plants to cultivate evenly. If the garden faces southeast, then the western sun is out of the problem, and you need to run your rows northwest and southwest to get the best distribution of sunlight.

If at all possible, the sunlight should be uniformly dispersed for the maximum available time. Undoubtedly you've seen the results of what happens when plants don't receive well distributed sunlight if you've looked at a window plant that lists more to one side than the other. Knowing where you will place your garden, sketch out a drawing of where you want each plant to go. In the beginning, the dirt in your garden plot will most likely be concealed underneath sod or other debris. You need to break the ground and turn the sod under if you will have a large garden, whereas all you need to do is remove the sod if the garden will be fairly small.

The sod can be taken and put into a pile to rot as a compost pile, to be used as fertilizer. You can contribute vegetable waste materials to your compost stack during the summer and autumn leaves during the fall. This garden compost provides garden fertilizer for the following year. It's essential to remove any large clumps from your garden location by sufficiently plowing the sod under. The soil should be made up of fine particles so that the seeds will grow properly. All it takes for getting your garden begun is a spade, a hoe, and a rake.

The spade can turn the garden soil in the first place, but it will leave too many clumps. A hoe will be helpful in eliminating the remaining clumps and will better prepare the soil. Using the spade is going to be strenuous, hard work, but using a hoe and a rake will not be that vigorous. Once the hoe work is finished, you then use the rake to make the bed fine and smooth. After you have this all done, you are prepared to start planting the seeds.
