Gardening in Alberta is its own stress-reliever, food-provider, and environmental burden-easer. Ranchers’ Rise’s layout and lot designs are perfectly suited for flourishing gardens. It’s no shock that such a thoughtfully composed community would lend itself to an enhanced vision of self-care and core family values. Gone are cramped city living days of growing seeds in tiny window flower boxes. Spending your spare time in the sun drenched outdoors, teaching your loved ones the grounded essence of digging in the soil, and enjoying the fruits (and vegetables) of your labors are just a few simple pleasures awaiting you when you design your own garden in Alberta at Ranchers’ Rise.

 

For those just getting started, here are a few tips to get your garden space underway.

 

Area

No matter what you choose to grow, nearly all garden plants need about 6 hours of direct sunlight daily. Choose your spot for optimal sunlight, but also near a convenient water source. If your outdoor faucet is on one side of your home, be sure your garden is easily accessible with a functional hose. Put your garden within eye line, out the window, just beyond the back door or a window. There can be fulfillment in simply seeing your garden. Let it brighten every aspect of your life.

 

Soil

Develop the soil you plan to garden using compost. Dig up the sod and loosen dirt with a til. Add composting agents to enhance the viability of the soil. Mix dried leaves, grass clippings, and manure into the top 8 – 12 inches of soil.

 

Plants

Picking what type of plants you’d like to harvest is as much fun as harvesting them. Keep in mind that Ranchers’ Rise gets about 95 to 110 frost-free days a year. Taking these factors into consideration can assist you in choosing the right plants. If this is your first garden, good starter vegetables are radishes, lettuce, peas, tomatoes, and onions. There are numerous excellent options to grow from seeds and those wanting to get a jump start before growing season begins can tend seeds in indoor pots and then transfer them outdoors when the weather allows.

 

Getting started on your own garden is an incredible way to improve your experience at Ranchers’ Rise. Not only does it provide you with lovely products, but gardening has proven itself to ease stress and improve health. We couldn’t think of a better contribution to our community than to have healthy, happy people living in it.
