You may have visions of drifts of color, wild flower prairies or bushels of tomatoes, but get your feet wet first, with some gardening basics. For flower gardens, choose a site close to the door or with a good view from a favorite window. Place your garden where you'll see and enjoy it often. This will also motivate you to garden more.

The front lawn shown here is small, but the homeowners still found an attractive, sunny spot to add some color and curb appeal. No matter how busy they are, they can enjoy their garden everytime they pull into their driveway or look out their front window.
