HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, September 20, 2011 1 HOMELIVING INSIDE IDEAL IDEAS Blooming glory GET GARDENING Spring into action Grow vegies at home Landscaping ways SPRING PROJECT Create something rustic COLOURFUL CHARACTER Are you sweet, sour or zesty? Backyard delights JANITA SINGH Having your own garden is not just kinder to the environment, it also helps you relax. THERE are many good reasons to convert a corner of the backyard into your own vegetable garden and add a few herbs to the windowsill this spring. Apart from the obvious advantages of saving money, growing your own herbs and vegies helps you get out of the house to enjoy the fresh air, encourages you to get some exercise, as well as being a lot kinder to the environment. With so much talk about going green, don't forget that having your own garden is a simple and effective way to reduce your carbon footprint. You also get an endless supply of fresh herbs and vegetables. You don't need a huge backyard to start your garden. Vegetables can be grown in pots, raised beds and even planted together with flowers. These can be grown on any scale, from the smallest of courtyards to the biggest backyard. When starting any garden, it pays to do some research. Find out what you want your garden to do for you, what areas are going to be dedicated for this, how much time and effort you want to spend on this activity and read magazines and guides. Gardens are an integral part of the Australian landscape and lifestyle. Whether you're a novice or were born with a green thumb, gardening is a wonderful way to relax and rejuvenate.
