Arkansas Home Landscaping Resources

Remember, the foundation to your landscape is the soil, so plan from the ground up. 

Start with soil testing before you begin a new garden.

Ask yourself these questions before you begin a garden: 

  • Can you can maintain what you plant?
  • Know the requirements of the plants you grow--do they need sun or shade, a lot of moisture or dry conditions? 
  • Are they prone to insects or diseases?  
  • When does it bloom? Will you need to prune? 

Contact your local county agent for advice for gardening in your area.
