Organic indoor plants may need additional light sources to make up for the light they miss out on by being indoors. This needs to be considered. If your residential space has limited sunlight, it will be best that you grow plants that are ideal for this type of environment. If you do and this does not help, consider investing in some grow-lights.
Keep your gardening tools close by to maximize gardening efficiency. Use a large bucket, or wear rugged pants with several pockets. Keep your gloves, pruning shears, a hand spade and your other tools handy to quickly and easily do your garden maintenance.
You should work efficiently, instead of working hard in your garden, to simplify things. Wasting time finding tools is inefficient gardening. In addition to keeping your gardening tools in one location, you should also clean your tools after each use. Invest in a tool belt or wear pants that have lots of pockets.
Pine can make for a great type of mulch. Some garden plants are high in acidity, and do better with acidic soil.

Lay a few inches of needles over the beds to allow them to decompose and add some acid to your soil.
