Get Ready for Your OC Garden Planting

It is tough taking care of garden planting in the OC. Not because the weather isn’t great. It’s because plots of dirt are at a premium. Many homes have concrete backyard that are perfect for skateboarding and basketball but not so great for gardening. If you really want to get a garden going and all you have is cement, there are options. There are many plant-growing systems that actually allow you to have fresh vegetables without any soil. Some of these are special planters. Other methods include straw bale planting with bales treated with fertilizer. Those can be set right on your driveway. If you’re interested in these alternative gardens, you might want to begin the process with a little clearing. That can happen with a call to Junk King.
