Draw the site plan and label all existing structures, perennial plants, landscape roughness, etc. Carefully think over what to keep and what better to remove. For example, you should get rid of the old, barren and inconvenient for the growing of trees, ramshackle buildings and thickets of wild raspberries.
Draw on revised terms, the new elements that you want to add. For example, paths, hedges, flower beds and beds with ornamental plants, pond, etc. be Sure to take a place for the varietal Apple and pear trees. Thanks to the work of breeders they grow not too tall and very handsome, which further decorate your garden. When planning, try to consider the terrain, the location of the cardinal points. For example, plants that love the sun, can't sit in the valley, and an artificial pond it is better to dig in the shade.
Improvement works begin with site clearance. Then plant new trees and shrubs hedges. For high border, you can use Privet or English, for low head plant host. Shrubs – not the only option for hedges. For her suit and many perennial plants or flowers. Feel free to experiment!
Lay out of artificial or natural stone pathways – this just looks spectacular. To get more interesting, replace some of the stones colored tiles or stones of a different color. Lay out the track on sand cushion. And do not try to kill all the grass growing between the stones – they look very decorative.
Organize an artificial reservoir. Place for a pond should be lit by the sun, but not directly, otherwise it will bloom. Dense shade is also not battery – it can kill aquatic plants. Dig a pit depth of about 80 cm, fill the bottom with sand, cover with a layer of geotextile and top – black film. On the edge of the pond lay natural stone and fill it with water. Below in the pond were not got mosquito larvae, it must be periodically cleaned with an aqueous cleaner.
Below the pond was a real gem is put in it water lilies. Buying this water plant, keep in mind that different varieties can grow at different depths of the reservoir. For example, a strain of Murray is growing at 25-50 cm of water, and Golden-pink Lily need a meter depth.
To plant the Lily, purchase a wicker basket with a volume of about 5 liters. Fill it with a mixture of 2 parts clay and 1 part of peat to 2/3 height. Plant the Lily and add more substrate. Tamp the ground and lay its surface with gravel. Then slowly lower the basket into the water to half the recommended depths. After some time, when the first leaves grow to the surface, lower the basket to the bottom.
Near the pond organize a relaxation area. The monitoring of water, its inhabitants and plants will give you lots of fun and will allow you to escape from everyday worries.
