      I'm new to gardening and looking to set up a low maintenance garden…?

      Thursday, August 18th, 2011

      My mom and I would like to plant a garden in front of our house. We have plenty of plantable space, but very little knowledge of gardening! We want a flower garden that is low maitenence. We both have busy schedules, and though we’re planning on putting in effort, working on the garden daily would not be possible for us. We are looking to plant perenials and not have to replant every year. We just want a pretty but simple garden that will not require us to spend excess amounts of time working on it. I don’t know anything about different flowers with different climates, but we live in central Ohio.

      Experienced gardeners: do you have any suggestions for what to plant and how to start?
