The most crucial step is finding the best place to install your Gutter Gardens. Keeping the Gutter Garden at or near waist height will really make a difference in dead-heading, watering, and watching your plants grow and flourish. It will also deter the rabbits, squirrels, raccoons and groundhogs from helping themselves to your bounty. Be mindful of the sun requirements and planting dates on the seed packets.
