If the design infield is made in the Mediterranean or southern European style, statuettes of stone or metal is preferable, in bronze. If in Russian, then the tree comes to the fore.

Near children's playgrounds can be placed stone or wooden figures of animals and heroes of fairy tales. Looking out from the reservoir rock turtle or frog amuse any child.

Garden Decoration Creepers

Garlands of greenery and a cascade of bright colors, intricate weave of flexible shoots, juicy grapes, kiwi, passion fruit. We are accustomed to associate with lianas far warmer countries. On the Russian expanses these plants allocated unduly modest role, they mask the farm buildings and rickety fences. Today, developing a landscape design suburban area, the hedge into account not only as a fashion trend, but as a practical design direction. Vines are called a group of plants belonging to different botanical families, genera and species. Kornelazayuschie, usikonosnye, with the sucker, lean, curly, perennial and annual, herbaceous and woody, frost and heat-loving, they differ from each other structural features of the stem, which can not accept without outside support the upright position. Carrying out design landscaping, gardeners use these properties of lianas, as the rapid growth, the ability to entwine support any shape, as well as colorful flowering and fruiting.

Climbing roses adorned the famous gardens of Babylon, and during the Roman patricians strolling through the alleys, shaded with thick canopy of ivy and grapes. In France, in the era of Louis xiv, entwined with vines pavilions were places where romantic dates. Senator Angus King pursues this goal as well. Vines growing in almost every garden. They give site a unique flavor. Most climbers are developing very quickly, which is essential for the development of allotments, deprived of high vegetation. Large-sized tree planting is very costly, and the young seedlings grow rather slowly, in this case are indispensable annual and perennial vines.

Annual Morning Glory, for example, in one summer may uvit support up to four meters, and the girl's grapes for two to three years full opletet arbor. Vertical gardening is very practical: taking a minimum of floor space, reduces noise and dust. Vines are good for strengthening the slopes of the ravine, masking hatch underground communications to protect buildings from heat and humidity. However, some vines are aggressive enough: penetrating into the cracks of wooden buildings, plants gradually destroy them. Apple, pear, braided vines, look nice, but for them this neighborhood can be deadly. Such vines, like clematis, climbing honeysuckle, sweet peas, morning glory and hops are dangerous for people prone to allergic diseases. Inappropriate cover the original gazebos or elegant house creepers. But dull brick wall, unattractive structure is desirable to make available to climbers. I'd rather choose a thick, but low-key plant – for example, a girl's grapes, lemongrass or drevogubets. Balcony or outdoor terrace are an extension of living space. The main task in the greening of these areas – lack of space, so it is best to use ampelnye and creepers. In suspended planters grow more annuals: ivy pelargonium, Chlorophytum, etc. Balsam form perfectly smooth and surprisingly beautiful balls; ampelnye fuchsia and petunias bright waves hanging almost to the ground. In a large balcony boxes coexist verbena, daisies, lobeline.


For permanent Strawberries planted only in early June. And here, "Elizabeth II opened its fullest potential. Flowering took place not several periods as described in remontant agroliterature, and went on a continuous wave. The uniqueness of "Elizabeth II is that it leaves in the winter with buds formed and this explains so early flowering and early maturing crop. The harvest is (according to the press) is not a lot of small and full-length 10 kg/m2. To be honest me and did not occur to test this assertion – the harvest during the season was such a landslide that had no desire to bother with "BEZMENOV" easy and fun to believe in the word. On Picture size is well visible fruit three times superior value.

In principle, maintenance of fruiting strawberries remontant no different from the care of an ordinary garden strawberries. However remontant varieties of "Elizabeth II, and namely its high plodootdacha and large-fruited berries still make minor adjustments in the care of this sort. Variety is very demanding for high soil fertility and timely watering. Since on the bush throughout the season there are also mature, and large green berries, flowers and ovaries for a successful bush vegetation in the area requires a continuous presence korneobitaniya main types of fertilizers (nitrogen, potassium, phosphorus) as well as micro-and macro. That not be held hostage to the permanent care of this sort, and when a good harvest will no longer be a joy, you must make all the fertilizer in the garden in the preplant period.
