It’s the sort of question you might get in a phone conversation.
But when it comes to picking out the perfect small garden, you have to start somewhere, says Lisa Rinaldi, founder and CEO of the Garden Center.
In the meantime, she’s got some tips for your budding small-green-grove aficionado.
Start with a big one, she says.
And pick something that you want to grow.
“For me, it’s a big two-acre garden with a tree planted in the front,” she says, adding that “one of the great things about this particular type of garden is you don’t have to worry about any pests.
It’s also a very large one.” “
This is not a very healthy garden.
It’s also a very large one.”
If you’re in a pinch, you could also check out the small-tree gardens at the University of Colorado and Cornell University, Rinali says.
You can also check with the state Department of Agriculture, which has a listing of plants that can be planted as part of a larger garden.
The state’s growing list is a good starting point, says Julie A. McNeil, a professor of landscape architecture at the College of Art and Design at Cornell.
A garden with lots of trees is not the same as a big tree garden, but you can still use a big variety of plants, she adds.
If you want a smaller garden, Ahern recommends a three- to five-acre one, with plenty of space for plants, herbs and shrubs.
You don’t need to worry that your little garden will be overrun with weeds.
“If it’s not too crowded, you don,t need a lot of weeds,” Ahern says.
“The more diversity in your garden, the less weeds you’ll encounter.”
