What factors should be observed when landscaping a country plot?

  • It is necessary to have information about the geographic location of the site, the composition of soils, the microclimate. Geographical location of the site, and in particular the terrain, let you say which landscape projects you can implement in this area. When analyzing the soil, it is desirable to take into account the moisture index and the degree of fertility. The best are sandy loams and loamy soils. Checking the data on the microclimate, it is important to know the degree of illumination of the site. Because there are both shade-loving and light-loving plants. After collecting all these indicators, you can determine which plants will be able to "get along" in the given territory.
  • The second stage is the preparation of the project, which indicates where the plants will be planted. The project also indicates all the buildings of the site, the boundaries of the available communications are drawn. When designing a project, it is necessary to clearly imagine what you want to see on your garden plot, what kind of flowers, trees, shrubs. All this is important to draw on paper and denote zones. Conditionally zones can be subdivided into: lawn, house, garden, flower garden, garden, pond and others.
  • In the third stage, soil and plants are prepared. Landscaping of the suburban area with their own hands is carried out in stages. First it is necessary to plant trees, then shrubs and only then flowers. If desired, you can also plant some vertical sections of the site( fences, wells, arbours).This will serve not only as an excellent decor element, but also will help to hide some defects. For example, you can mask the unevenness of the fence. But it should be clearly remembered that any climbing plants need support, so they can be planted only next to vertical patches. Otherwise, the plant will "crawl" on the ground.

Gardening and landscaping of the suburban area: planting of plants

Planting of lawn grass. The soil is first prepared( leveled).For this, the harrow is used, and then the rink, which smoothes the plowed land. Further the site needs to be "fertilized" with fertilizers. They are applied shortly before sowing. After the planting of grass.

Grass is selected depending on the type of soil. Fertile soil can be sown with meadow bluegrass. Non-chernozem, poor soil can be sown with a white clover. The future lawn is best surrounded by a curb that will visually separate the lawn area from the rest of the site.

Flower beds and flower beds. After the lawn is made out, you can start planting flowers. To do this, it is necessary to determine the color scale and type of the most suitable colors, as they should be in harmony with the overall landscape design in the given territory.

Can be landscaped gardening flowerbeds of different types. Flower beds are made from large flowers, carpet - from low flowering plants. For gardening space, you can also create a rock garden or rock garden. This requires ground cover plants, natural stones, as well as some groups of flowers( tulips, forget-me-nots, narcissuses, etc.).

Some recommendations

  • When sowing grass, it is best to use a sowing lawn. It is much more practical and simpler.
  • When planting vertical plots( fences, fences), it is better to use decorative coniferous plants. For example, it can be juniper or thuja.
  • Tree seedlings are best purchased with a closed root system.

But, perhaps, the best recommendation can be - your reference to a specialist. In many companies today are an individual plan for gardening and landscaping. Also on paper do zoning of the site. Turning to professionals, you will save yourself from many problems in the future.
