How to Build a Simple Garden in Your Back Yard


The garden is a place to relax, unwind, and enjoy the outdoors. If you have a little bit of land in your backyard and want to create your own relaxing space, building a simple garden can be just the ticket.

Clear an area to plant your garden.

If you’re starting from scratch, clear an area in your back yard to plant your garden. Then, pick up some compost and soil at the store.

If you have some existing plants in the area, dig around them and make sure that they don’t look stressed. If they are looking tired or sickly, remove them so they don’t infect any new plants that get planted later on.

Set up a source of water.

“Finally, you’ll want to set up a source of water. If you have access to city water and/or rain barrels, that’s great! If not, consider installing an irrigation system in your garden so that it gets watered regularly.

Depending on the type of plants you choose for your garden and how much time you want to devote to watering them (see below), watering can be done once or twice per week throughout the summer months.”

Add soil and plants.

Soil is an important aspect of a garden. It needs to be nutrient-rich, allowing the plants you plant to thrive in their environment. Here are some tips on how to add soil:

  • The first step is to find out what kind of soil you have in your backyard, then use that information when deciding what kind of plants to grow there.
  • After that, get yourself some organic compost or dirt from another area that has good soil and mix it up with the existing dirt in your backyard. If needed, mix this mixture with water until it becomes a nice consistency—the ideal would be like soft clay but not too wet or dry!
  • Now pour this mixture into all parts of your backyard where there will be plants growing (keep them away from any structures). Spread it evenly across every inch so that each spot has just enough moisture and nutrients for each type of plant type available for purchase at [your local garden store]. Also make sure there are no clumps left behind after pouring out so everything looks nice and even.”

Get some comfortable furniture.

After you have the basics down, you can think about adding some extra accessories that will make your garden more comfortable. You might want to get a bench or hammock for relaxing, or even a swing! If you’re going to be spending a lot of time sitting in your back yard and enjoying the weather, why not sit outside on an actual chair? A table and chairs are one of the simplest additions you can make to any garden space but they can really add a lot of personality to it. If it gets too hot outside during those summer months, having somewhere cool and shady where everyone can sit is always nice too. Plus who doesn’t love eating dinner outside around an open fire pit?

You can create a relaxing space in your back yard by building a simple garden.

You can create a relaxing space in your back yard by building a simple garden. You can add a source of water to your garden, so that you will have something to listen to while you are sitting there. A waterfall would also be nice, but if you’re on a budget or don’t want the noise of moving water then it’s not necessary.

The next step is to select some plants for your garden and add soil around them. The type of plants you choose depends on what kind of look and feel you want for your new backyard oasis! Finally, if all this hard work has left you feeling hot and sweaty then it’s time to sit back and relax with some friends or family members who also enjoy gardening!


We hope this guide has helped you understand the basics of how to build a simple garden. It’s not as complicated as it might seem, and if you follow these steps, then you’ll be well on your way to having your own relaxing space in no time!
