1. Location, location, location: Depending on what part of the country you live in will determine the best plants and flowers that are suitable for growing in your backyard. If you're not sure of what grows best in your region, check with a local garden supply store.

2. Know your soil pH: Before sowing your lawn, it's imperative to know the pH of your soil. Perform a soil test to ensure you know the right type and proper amounts of amendments to add.

3. Irrigation: Make certain that your garden will get the water it needs by checking the grade of the area. You'll want to ensure that the water is draining away from the foundation of your house and it may be necessary to add additional topsoil to correct the grade.

4. Sunlight: When choosing where to build your backyard garden, be sure to keep in mind the amount of sunlight the area gets. Position your garden in a spot that isn't shaded by your home.
