New ideas for design of flower beds and vegetable beds it is best to implement before the start of the summer season. Like painting, which become even more meaningful in well-chosen frame, flower beds, garden beds with herbs and vegetable plants look much more attractive in a skilled setting. For the decoration of beds you can use different materials: clinker brick, natural stone, roofing tile, paving stones
. Someone will have to taste the living frame
of twigs of willow, low-growing shrubs like boxwood or herbs.
1. Willow twigs
are well suited for the manufacture of structures of any shape and perfectly fit in landscape style wildlife areas and in framing flower beds or garden beds.
embedded in the ground at "the corner", please look. Lay them on the solution and stability of masonry curb guaranteed.
3. Different levels
make the diversity in decoration of flower beds and garden beds. The frame is made of old bricks, we can sit on them, which facilitates the work in the garden.
4. Roof tiles as border
installs easily, without any gaps, even along the winding path, which helps to keep them clean.
5. Mediterranean herbs in the center of the bed, lined with cobbled stone
, feel as well as insects and amphibians, who found there a safe home.What to choose
— a stone or a tree depends rather not on the value, and the style of the garden and buildings. If the house is in a rural location, it is better to choose natural materials that harmoniously fit into the overall picture and at the same time define the shape and structure of the whole plot. Selection of materials should be approached carefully, giving preference weather-resistant.
In former times traditional European farms was a classic boxwood hedge
. Evergreen boxwood, due to its dense crown, ability well to periodic pruning and molding, as well as simple to care for, became one of the most popular evergreens for the decoration of the garden.
But now, in the time of wide spread butterfly box tree moth
and striking boxwood mushroom Cylindro-cladium buxicola
pests, garden farms bringing great harm, planted other plants that can be used as hedges. Great quality boxwood — hardiness, easy care, decorative, high ability to regenerate, and also that it lends itself well to edging and gives a dense hedge, is unlikely to exceed any other plant, but the alternative is still there.
Boxwood Ognevka lives across Europe, Russia on the coast of the Krasnodar region. A victim of her black-and-yellow caterpillars become boxwood trees. Full control of this pest is possible, while the caterpillars are very young, i.e. in April or in June-July when there is a new generation.
To deal with the help moth PYRETHROID insecticides, such as "Decis", as well as bacterial drugs. But sometimes plants are damaged so much that you have to plant new or replace the other boxwood species.
Unpretentious and respond well to pruning and forming of Ilex aquifolium
(Ilex crenata), in particular varieties ‘Stokes’, ‘Golden Gem’, ‘Dark Green’ or ‘Glory Gem’, sensicality barberry
(Berberis buxifolia) ‘Nana’, the brilliant honeysuckle
(Lonicera nitida) ‘Maigrnn’), Dubrovnik ordinary
(Teucrium chamaedrys) and Euonymus Fortune
(Euonymus fortune ‘Emerald n Gold’ and ‘Emerald Gaiety n’).Ilex aquifoliumHoneysuckle
1. The cuff is soft
(mollis Aichemiiia) simultaneously with geraniums, delphinium, Bellflower, Foxglove, poppy and mock orange, plays the role of a border, while enhancing the harmony of the colours.
thrives at the edges of garden paths. Round heads of blossoms, you can determine where leads the narrow path of gravel.
3. Santolina gray
(Santolina chamaecyparissus) native to the Mediterranean, so is ideal for dry and Sunny sites. Shrub 30-60 cm lends itself well to molding, but in areas with a harsh climate requires serious protection from the cold.
4. Smooth or curly parsley
(Petroseiinumcrispum) can serve as a natural border. Curly parsley is well suited for raised beds with herbs.
In addition to the optical perception play an important role and practical considerations: border fencing set the kind of boundaries
that clearly mark transitions from one zone to another
and perform a specific support function
for both the soil and plants. This is particularly critical in those areas where there are high ridges and slopes with which the earth is washed away by rains. To curbs damaged during work on the beds, they must be properly strengthened
. This is especially important where near the beds is a lawn. Hitting lawn mowers can damage the best guardrail if curbs will not be well fortified in the ground. For this purpose under a future curb, dig a trench to a depth of 20-30 cm and fill it with cement mortar — in the construction markets there is already a ready-mix, which need only be diluted with water.
Work can begin in early spring as soon as thawed soil, and possibly soon your garden will get a brand new shape.published
