Who doesn’t like a flower garden? Well, even in case you have not deemed decorating your backyard exactly with flowers, I’m sure you won’t say no some fresh colours and something a bit different than just grass. No matter if you fancy a fairytale garden, brimming with pink orchids and vibrant roses, or if you wish a macho plant backyard packed with carnivorous plants – you will need to be sure how to make it happen. Luckily it is fairly simple to establish and if you have some discipline (or funds to feature water sprinklers on timers) your plants and flowers will live long and happy lives.
What you will require is shovels and trowels (based on the type of the flowers), extension cord or garden hose, to mark the exterior of the plant bed and plastic or tarp to get rid of the grass and other plant life growing in the area where your bed would be situated. Also you will require sod staples to fix it to the ground adequately. After acquiring all of that, determine the boundaries of the bed with the aid of the extension cord. The shape is up to your taste, but curvy would generally look better. After that get the black plastic or tarp, making sure that it covers the entire surface and put it under the extension cord. Nail in the sod staples into the turf to fix the plastic and the line in place. After that it is time to place the soil. It’s wise to fix the bed as it delivers improved water drainage for the plants and you do not want them to drown, do you? When all of this is done, you’re ready to place your flowers into the bed. When buying flowers, you better make sure that they are fit by pulling them out of the containers in the nursery. What you need is the roots to shoot evenly in the root ball. You do not want the turf to fall apart, though you do not want to see nothing but roots either. Dig a hole about 1.5 times the depth and width of the root ball and coat the plant with soil slightly lifting towards it. After that you are ready to mulch. You need to mulch all of the unused space between the flowers and water them properly on the first day. There you are – your very own flower area is complete! In case you really prefer to get fancy, you can lay out a brick boundary and even water sprinkle system to improve it to an expert level.
As you can tell the method is very easy to work to and can be easily completed in a day.
