The in-ground garden in the backyard is the most often pictured kind of garden. If you have a lot of areas and easy access to water, these gardens are a wonderful choice. For landscaping or growing fruits and vegetables, in-ground gardens are vulnerable to animals and the weather. Keep an eye out for any weather conditions that need the use of plant protection measures to keep your plants safe. Choosing a home for a plant might be a challenge. You will only be able to cultivate plants and trees that are native to or are suitable for your area in this kind of garden.

Kitchen gardening

Kitchen gardening is separated from the rest of the backyard, with its decorative plants and grassy expanses. It can be used as a place where fruits, vegetables, herbs, and other plants are all cultivated together. A personal kitchen garden should be based on the vegetables and herbs that you use most often in your own cuisine. Containers and climbers may be used to maximise limited space. It’s best to keep your kitchen garden in a sunny location, close to a supply of water and handy to the kitchen.

If you don’t have a lot of area for an outside garden, hydroponics is a great option. Hydroponic gardens, on the other hand, are not maintenance-free and need the purchase of fertilisers. Even if you buy all-inclusive fertiliser, you should still be aware of what you’re feeding your plants, even if it’s convenient. As long as you take care of your plant in the way it prefers, hydroponic gardening types are the most versatile option for farming.

Herb gardening

Herb gardens are landscaped areas filled with culinary and medicinal plants. As a matter of fact, herb plants are frequently overlooked when it comes to landscape design. For the most part, herbs are worth cultivating because of their pleasant aromas and beautiful blossoms. It’s not only for garnishing salads, spicing up dull veggies, or snipping a few leaves off of meats to enhance the taste. Herbs like calendula and borage offer a dash of colour to a garden.

Most herbs are delicate winter annuals when it comes to cultivation. Once they’ve been planted in the right soil, they thrive and don’t need a lot of daily attention. Herbs thrive in containers and raised beds. It’s important to choose soil and a container that are proportional to the sort of herb you’re growing so that the roots don’t become too wet.

Container gardening

Container gardening is an excellent alternative for novices when it comes to growing plants inside. Different sizes of pots, containers and boxes are used in this gardening type, which allows you to move the plants about your home at will. When the weather is nice, you may leave your newly sprouted plants outdoors. Make sure you choose a pot that is appropriate for the height and width of your plant. Your plant’s container will need to be adjusted as it develops.

Water gardening

An attractive water garden offers a chance to see reflections in the pool and a variety of vibrantly coloured plants growing around the edges. When planning water gardens, the first thing to consider is the availability of freshwater and the ways of disposing of the excess water, which are critical considerations. Avoid planting at all costs if you cannot take care of stale water that can turn out to be a  health hazard. 

Creating a water garden doesn’t have to be limited to fish and animals. If it’s a small container with a few swaying plants, then it’s likely to be a watercourse or a fountain. Copper sulphate or bio-filtration is a good way to ensure that your water is safe.

Indoor gardening

Indoor gardens aid in maintaining a connection with nature, thereby bringing the outdoors in. Foliage on houseplants comes in a wide variety of sizes, shapes, and colours, and it requires less fertiliser. The majority of indoor plants are evergreens, and thus need a fair amount of light. Depending on the time of year, the angle of the sun, the length of the day, and the colour of the walls, the quantity of light in a particular place might vary.

In contrast to poor plant development, overexposure to light may cause leaves to bleach, scald, and even dry up. This may also occur if plants are not transitioned from the inside to the outdoors or vice versa in a progressive manner. Houseplants include the following: agaves, monsteras, ferns, dracaenas, philodendrons, and dieffenbachias.

Flower gardening

Gardening with flowers is a wonderful way to add colour, texture, and scent to your landscape. It is mostly cultivated for ornamentation. Trees, bushes, and ground cover should all be considered while planning your garden. Plants should have elevated beds, borders, and pathways.

Take note of the temperature, sunlight, and soil quality in your outside space. Because flowers bloom at various times of the year, it’s important to consider how long you want yours to last before planting. All at once, or staggered throughout the growing season, is an option.

Planning your flower garden may be made more interesting by creating themed areas, such as a butterfly garden, bird garden, wildlife garden, rose garden, perennial garden, shade garden, water garden, or cactus garden.

Square foot gardening

Square Foot gardening type does not need as much space as a typical style garden does. Your garden plot should be marked out one square foot at a time. Your chosen veggies will be crammed into each square, and each one will represent a distinct kind of crop.

You’ll have a wider variety of crops to choose from without the need for a large garden. This kind of gardening allows you to grow almost any type of food you choose. In addition to year-round vegetables, you may produce seasonal fruits in a square foot garden. When trellising is required, do it appropriately.

Mughal style gardening

The Persian garden style had a major influence on Mughal garden design. The utilisation of rectilinear patterns inside walled enclosures, with ponds, fountains, and canals, is prevalent in these gardens. Shalimar Gardens in Lahore/Srinagar, Pinjore Gardens, and the Taj Mahal are just a few examples.

Structural design is heavily influenced by sunlight and its impact. The light was harnessed via the use of textures and forms that were carefully selected by architects. Shade is provided by trees and trellises, which are often used. Also significant in terms of structure are pavilions and walls. Qanat, a kind of subterranean tube, is used to irrigate the garden. By building arches between the exterior and interior areas, this kind of gardening aims to merge the ‘inside and outdoor’.

Upside-down gardening

You may maximise the amount of room in your garden by growing certain crops upside down, regardless of whether you’re attempting to produce more food or are low on space. Tomatoes are usually grown in this manner. Consider growing tomatoes upside down if you love them but are worried you won’t have enough space to grow as many as you want (or any at all).

When it comes to growing tomatoes upside down, you may either buy a specialised container or create your own out of a bucket. It doesn’t matter how you look at it; either way, they’re a great source of food for many people. Tomatoes may also be used to make salsa, salads, or soups, making them a versatile ingredient.
