Do it yourself garden
Do-it-yourself garden improvement is one of the most difficult tasks. One of the decorations of the garden are bright flower beds. Flower beds have long been considered an indicator of wealth and harmony in the house. They can be placed anywhere on your site. According to general estimates, flowers can cover from 7% to 10% of the total area of the site. But before you start decorating the site, you must determine the zone, as well as which flowers you are going to plant.

The first impression of your site is formed from the front gardens, and how well-groomed they are. However, when viewed from the side of the house, it is often judged by the owner about the state of the porch. The porch has long been considered a kind of "border between strangers and their own," which separated the inner world from the outside world. Even in Ancient Russia, the porch of the true owner was decorated with wooden lace, pillars. Making lace is not difficult. You just need patience and a little sleight of hand. There are a huge number of templates on the Internet, having printed out which you can easily transfer them to paper, and then you can cut them out with an electronic jigsaw.
Another thing is to create a "green wall." In the modern world, a person is constantly next to glass, concrete, brick. All this looks monotonous, and there is no way to fix anything in the concrete wall. Another thing is when you have a “live” fence at your disposal. The advantage of this fence is environmental friendliness and ease of manufacture. All you need is perennial climbing plants and trellises, of course you can also use pergolas. However, the latter is better to use if you will make the transition from one recreation area to another.

Also a great opportunity to decorate your site is the creation of mountain landscapes. They are mainly created from decorative stones and plants. In addition to mountain landscapes, you can use rockeries, this is also a kind of mountain landscape, but executed on a certain plane. Rock gardens look very nice in places where there is a difference in ground levels in order to bring the territory as close to the mountain as possible. Rockeries are perfect for decorating ponds.
Before installing water or mountain landscapes, you should take into account the opinion of specialists who will help and tell you where and how to better place objects. When choosing materials and installing a rock garden, you should know the following. First, never mount rock gardens on a flat surface. Secondly, the place for it should be sunny, since most mountain plants are photophilous. Thirdly, mountain landscapes are characterized by the presence of a drainage system. Sandy-clay soils are suitable for it. Fourth, never use fertile soil, as mountain plants live in very harsh conditions, and an abundance of nutrients will lead to increased growth or even death of plants, which will only spoil your object.

Also, you should not forget about the choice of stones. For mountain landscapes, limestone and sandstone are quite suitable. Granite and boulders are not very suitable, however, if you try, you can create a masterpiece from them. When installing, you must take into account that the stones sink into the ground more than half, at least one third, while the most massive stones go to the base. Plants are also arranged in their own way, large plants are located with boulders, and smaller ones are located next to smaller stones. This creates the image of the pyramid.
By experimenting on your site, you can achieve incredible results.
