As for any other activity, and for landscaping gardens, the order and the way of implementation are extremely important. Proper landscaping of the yard could save you a lot of nerves and resources, and also will result in you having a beautiful garden. Here we offer our concept of the order and the stages of landscaping of yards and gardens.

Surveys

Everything starts with the studies – clarifying – the climate, the luminosity of the various sections, the constant winds, the characteristics of the soils, the groundwater, the water sources, etc. The existing vegetation and terrain are captured.

Design

Once we have clarified everything, the ideas are coming. Click To Tweet

In designing, we have to solve many issues related to landscaping of the yard and the garden – what kind of landscaping do you want, the distribution of functional areas, the alley network, the structure and species composition of the vegetation, what kind of garden elements do you want?

Draining, strengthening and vertical planning

The start of the yard landscaping work is consistent with gardening activities. It is good to start immediately after finishing the heavy and machine-building works in the green areas. Although there may be a conflict between the two activities, we offer this in view of the shorter landscaping times. Drains, boreholes and retaining walls are first built. If you have foreseen a irrigation system, and this is definitely the right choice, you have to lay the highway pipes and leave the drains to the shafts with valves.

 

Now comes the alley network. Do not forget under the paths to put the so-called siege pipes through which later cables or other pipes can pass. If you are going to block the access to some area of the yard, it is better to clean and store humus soil beforehand or leave some of the paths not built. Now, taking into account the levels obtained from the alleys, spread out a layer of soil that you have prepared beforehand.

Landscaping with decorative vegetation

This stage of landscaping gives the look of the gardens. Planting of ornamental plants is important both for the species and phytosanitary status of the green areas. It is good to get up early in the spring or autumn, but when plants are planted or stored in containers this can be calm during the summer, and some colleagues do it successfully even in the winter / I personally think that the efforts are not worthwhile / Planting and subsequent care and maintenance are important to the capture and well – being of plants.

Construction of irrigation system

It is done once all levels have been given and the vegetation has been planted. Sprinklers should be exactly at the

ground level and be consistent with the plants to ensure a uniform irrigation coverage of lawns / plants not placed directly in front of sprinklers /. The garden areas are watered with drip irrigation. Having an irrigation system is not a luxury but a necessity.

Grassing

This is the last stage in landscaping gardens. Appropriate grassing time is from March to November inclusive.

Maintenance of gardens and yards.

Once the landscaping of the garden is over, it comes to the care of it. Maintenance of green areas is a complex of care that takes place during each growing season. Remember that once we plant the garden without maintenance it will lose its beauty.

Landscaping gardens is a responsible process involving many activities. I wish you good luck. Take a look at one example how to make mid century landscape design.

 

Three Ideas for flowers during the winter season if you live in an apartment

Three Ideas for flowers during the winter season if you live in an apartment

Wintering flowers seems to be getting easier in a house. The farmer will still find where to place them. There are always corners that are not used and are suitable for flowers. In the apartment things are a little different. Here are three ideas that can work you out.

Put shelves on one of the doors to the balcony

If you do not have enough space on the window sills or just below the windows, sacrifice one of the doors to the balcony. Realize that you will not be able to open it to ventilate it this winter. Attach shelves to it, arrange flowers and cacti on them. Ensure that the door is properly sealed in order not to damage the plants if the temperatures become too low. The inconvenience is that if the pots are too long or the shelves too long, you will have to take the pots every time you want to water them. The good thing is that in winter, flowers are rarely irrigated anyway.

Make more hanging pots

Do not worry that not all plants are hanging or wrapping. You can easily grab or make a large and shallow hanging pot in which to arrange a lot of small pots with still unspoiled plants. They will feel good, and you will have ┬áspace in the room for the older ones.

On the side of kitchen cabinets

Kitchens are usually light and the kitchen cabinet sides are unused. Mount small shelves for them and arrange pots on them. True, the kitchen is a bit warmer, it is best for the flowers to stand in a bright and cool room, but the air in it is wetter. Plants feel good in the kitchen, and it looks more beautiful with them. If you have bulbs, keep them in a dark and cool place – in the closet or basement, where the temperature is 7 to 10 degrees. Do not wrap them in a nylon or bag.

After you finish with your flowers you will definitely need to clean the house. To save yourself time and effort is best to call professional cleaning company. But how much the professional house cleaning cost? You will certainly get cheaper than taking a day off and spend it cleaning the house. Not to mention the preparations you should buy.
