    Keep it simple. You will not need to be an advanced gardener to create a beautiful spot in your back yard. If you are just starting up gardening, only purchase the necessary gardening equipment: shovels, forks, gloves, kneeling pads and welders.

    Plan the flowerbed. You will need to choose the location of the flowerbed. It should not be too sunny, and make sure you do not have to carry the gardening equipment for a long distance every day. If you have a larger garden, your best option is to plan it next to your favorite walking route, or close to the garden bench. Pergolas are able to give you the best atmosphere, and climbing plants do not need much gardening equipment.
