05 Jul Build your own terrace garden with these simple pointers
In today’s world of shrinking spaces, having your own garden is out of the question! Therefore, roof tops come as a great rescue for all the garden lovers.
Building your own terrace garden is exceptionally an easy procedure if done with a proper planning with the correct resources. Each and every person has their own purpose behind having a terrace garden, some want to use it for vegetable gardening, while other wants to use it for lazing around. Before starting with the process, having a clear view of what you want is very important.
The right type of soil is very important as the nutrients decide the growth of the plant. It becomes very easy if the soil has a right composition. The right mix of soil requires regular soil, compost coir peat (or sand) and vermicompost in equal quantities.
First time gardeners?
Nothing to worry about! Start with a single vegetable,and then gradually expand to other veggies. You can begin with plants which are easier to grow and maintain such asmint, kadipatta, tomatoes, chilies, etc.
Keep your space hydrated
Watering regularly is a must. In summers, your garden requires water twice a day. In winters you can just press the soil with the back of your hand to check the moisture and water accordingly.
Another important thing is enough sunlight. The terrace garden should receive at least four to six hours of direct sunlight, and in areas where the sun is too harsh, people can use a shade to prevent the plants from getting scorched.
