How can I create good garden shade?

Determining Shade Conditions

It is important to give plants their necessary levels of shade. Some plants thrive in shade, while others will not. Taking the time to observe your planting area can give you much information on the types of plants that will work in your garden.

Before you plant, observe the prospective planting sites for one full week. Take notice of the areas that receive the most light, little light and the areas which are in full shade. This will help you determine which plants and flowers are suitable for your shade gardens.
