A garden is a place where different types of plants specially flowers and fruits and vegetables are cultivated. We have an enormous back garden with lovely plants and trees. I love my garden. I spend most of my summer holidays in our garden. We got some big trees and small plants and we got a lovely garden shed where we can sit and read books, cook barbecue and relax. Our garden is a very calm and peaceful place and its my favorite place in our house. I love the fresh air when I walk through the garden. It’s not very formal, neat or lined up. Our garden is wild and covered with all sort of plants which attracts the birds and the animals.My mother in-law created this lovely garden.

We got lots of snails and slugs in our garden and we don't destroy them. But we can control the snails and slugs by pulling the weeds, keep all the decaying matter cleaned of your garden beds, the leaves are the good shelter for slugs and snails. Try to prune branches of any plants which are laying on the ground. Keep the shaded areas clean and weed and litter free.

I've always enjoyed gardening and spend quality time with nature. It's helping me to lead a healthy and happy life. It's so nice to hear the early morning birdsong from the garden, and the lovely smell from the plants and flowers. I was fascinated by the worms, snails, slugs, lady birds, spiders and caterpillars and exploring the nature.
