How to achieve your gardening goals

Research has shown that specific gardening goals will result in a better garden.

I researched the top gardening goals and compared them to my garden. This led me to 8 goals to help transform your garden. And I have identified the most significant obstacles to achieving these goals.

Are your gardening goals project-based or strategic?

Writing your goals will make it easier to reach them. This is because writing or speaking helps you clarify what you want. Instead of thinking vaguely about what you should do this year, identify a project or strategy.

Project-based gardening goals

  1. Make a compost pile.
  2. Get rid of that corner in the garden that has become a dump.
  3. Your garden can be transformed from a family garden into a peaceful retreat or vice versa.
  4. Increase your vegetable intake

Strategic gardening goals

  1. Increase wildlife friendliness in your garden
  2. Increase the sustainability of your garden
  3. Garden maintenance can be made more accessible.
  4. Conserve water in your garden

Goals for project-based gardening – Create a compost heap

Renovate a neglected corner of your garden

  1. Everybody has a place in the garden where they dump their stuff. That dumping ground can grow, so the entire park is a mess.
  2. Are you ready to achieve success? Overwhelming yourself.
  3. It is best to start small. I divided the task into sections and worked one area at a. We would then take all the trash to the tip. Next, we found places to store what was left. The process continues.
  4. You can also “chunk it down” by using time. You can set your alarm for 15 minutes and then spend precisely 15 minutes clear. You can then return 15 minutes later or another day. It is highly efficient. It’s helped me to clear a garage full of junk.
