If you are renting a home from one of the Property Management Laurel, MD agencies and do not have a good sized garden or not a garden at all what can you do if you are a green-fingered tenant and in need of exercising those urges.
There are abundant options of gardens you could have to make your green-fingers work that includes window box gardening, and allotments. Whatever situation you may find yourself in, never give up because you do not have a big garden. Here you will find some ideas and suggestions to keep your hobby going.
Join a Community Garden
A community garden is a piece of land set up by a group of people that garden, fruit, ornamentals, or vegetables and found in many neighborhoods, institutions, and schools. In Maryland, you can find quite a few community gardens to join.
Look for one of these community gardens close to you and get to know your neighbors while making your green fingers work at the same time.
Neighborhood gardens: Here you can get together with neighbors and plant ornamentals, grow fruits and vegetables. Gardeners paying a nominal annual fee, rent these gardens.
Institutional gardens: These types of gardens normally attached to public or private groups. These groups offer a number of beneficial services to residents that range from physical or mental therapy providing skills for job placements.
Demonstration gardens: These gardens usually used for recreational and educational settings. They present you with presentations and short seminars about gardening and sometimes offer tours of what is grown.
Another great alternative that Laurel, MD Property Managers have found and used by some of our tenants are window boxes. As many rented apartments have limited space, the window box allows you to enjoy a bit of gardening. It provides you with additional planting space while creating a display admired and tended whenever you need.
With window boxes, you are not limited in only planting flowers, but fruit and vegetables as well. Make sure to use the correct soil and with some love and tender care, you can even spice up your kitchen with some herbs by planting them in small pots.
When attempting to grow plants in your window boxes make sure to plant only enough plants for you to take care of. Having the right quantity means, you can take care of all window boxes providing them with your full attention to make them thrive and flourish.
If you prefer to plant flowers the following plants are ideal for window box displays: ferns, pansies, geraniums, and many more as they enjoy semi-shade.
