You want to have a garden, but you do not know where to start. Of course, you should first determine the size you want to manage. There are a few things to consider when making this first decision about size.
How much time do you have to commit to gardening? This will determine how much garden you can handle. If you over commit yourself, your garden will become a mess and it will depress you that you cannot keep it looking super.
Bigger gardens make a yard look smaller. While you may form emotional attachments to your garden and every plant, others will simply see a beautiful green lawn taken over by a monstrous mess.
Now apply these factors to the potential of selling your home and you will see another angle to all of this about the size of your garden. The value of a home is what people are willing to pay for it. If the garden gives it a disastrous look, then people will be less willing to pay what it’s worth.
A tidy, small garden will add a happy, fresh look to a large, green lawn. It will increase the appeal of your home when selling, but it will also increase your sorrow at letting go your lovely darlings. Consider this when choosing to start a garden at all. If you are planning to resell your house in the future, then you should garden to increase its sex appeal. Dig for value.
