Gardening can be done both indoors and outdoors. If you are one of those lucky people who have lots of space in your backyard, you can set up a nice garden where you can relax and unwind after a long day at the office. You can design your garden is such a way that you will have some privacy and a lot of peace and quiet. Setting up a small water fountain in your garden can also help you relax and feel at peace with yourself.
On the other hand, if happen to live in the city where there isn’t really much space for gardening, you can still have your very own garden at home. Just because you live in a windowless apartment that does not mean that you cannot have your own small indoor garden. However, unlike when you have a large yard where you can set up a big garden and let the sun nourish your plants, indoor gardening can be a lit more complicated.
Now, before you start thinking that indoor gardening is out of your league, consider this, the only real difference between indoor gardening and outdoor gardening is that the other gets the benefit of natural sunlight while the other needs artificial light. Other than that, the basic ideas of gardening are more or less the same. Whether you are doing indoor gardening or outdoor gardening, you will use more or less the same garden tools.
Setting Up Your Indoor Garden
Setting up your indoor garden can be a bit tricky especially if you have limited space inside your home. To make sure that your garden will not take up so much space inside your home, use plants that do not really grow big. You should also design your garden in such a way that it will blend perfectly into the general set-up of your home. You may use computer software to run simulations of indoor garden designs in your home to find out which design works best for you.
