quiz to discover your own preferences
Gardening should be enjoyable. You should want to get out in your garden. While you may not have considered this, the garden itself can determine whether you enjoy or dislike gardening. Since you are designing/redesigning your garden, you have the chance to plan a garden that’s suited to your time, budget, abilities and gardening personality. That’s what the Colorado-friendly Garden is all about.
We all approach gardening in slightly different ways. Certain gardening tasks may bring you great enjoyment, while others seem more like chores. Even if you’ve gardened for a long time, it pays to re-evaluate what you enjoy (and even can still do physically). Your Colorado-friendly Garden should maximize enjoyment and minimize the ‘chores’! But first you need to seriously consider what you like and dislike about gardening. Our questionnaire will help you organize your thoughts.
Even the pace at which you install your garden is highly personal. You may want to install your entire garden ‘right now’; alternatively, you may be more comfortable with letting your garden plan develop more slowly. There is no one right way – we each need to work within our own constraints and desires. Here is a Table to help you discover elements of your gardening self that may influence the landscape plan you develop (http://www.slideshare.net/cvadheim/what-type-of-gardener-worksheet-29222124).
