You Don’t Need to Wait Until Spring to Start Your Garden!

Punxsutawney Phil has predicted 6 more weeks of winter.  Does this mean we should restrict ourselves from sunbathing and gardening? Handyman Matters doesn’t think so.  Here’s our guide to creating springtime indoors.

  • Kitchen Herb Gardens

Notoriously small, notoriously helpful.  Herb gardens are the tiny bits of life that can be squeezed into almost any home space.  If you have a window in your kitchen, hang a small rack to place these small pots in.  Improve your cooking and your kitchen aesthetics!

  • Seeding a Vegetable Garden

Start your outdoor garden, indoors!  Seeding a garden before you plant one outdoors will help insure its success.  To get started, install a large shelf and hang grow lights at the top.  Make sure the seedlings are getting enough light and position their trays accordingly.  Here’s some more information on planting techniques and shelf examples.

  • Building a Greenhouse

Are you looking to grow less practical plants?  Would you prefer to fill your home with flowers, succulents, or trees?  Greenhouses are perfect for creating the humid, tropical forest you’ve always wanted.  Green houses can vary from small home installations, to large backyard structures.  

  • Creating a Sunroom

It’s the living room version of the greenhouse!  When you want to live amongst the flowers and the sun – you build a sunroom.  Typically added as a home extension, these living spaces are glass enclosed rooms that allow you to enjoy the warmth of the indoors while also soaking up some rays.  Plants thrive in this kind of set up, so the more the merrier.

It may still be winter, but that doesn’t mean your home has to reflect that.  Spring can come early to your home with a few simple steps.  Thinking about adding on a sunroom or greenhouse to your home?  Looking to install an indoor garden?  Handyman Matters can help.  Call us today for a free quote (866-FIX-MY-HOME) or fill out the free quote form above.
