In this area of the garden is where it has remained the order, although in reality the order within this jungle garden is vital, otherwise it could not be a walkable garden, precisely because of the number of plants that have been used to create the appearance of the garden jungle.
After the living area, find a ladder that saves the garden slope to walk inside. It is very interesting as you have created the stairs that spiral shaped, first pair did not take part of the garden with the ladder and break as linear forms of the principle of the garden.
Steps through the garden
Through the garden have been placed circular wooden steps of the same wood as the Deck of the terrace. The exuberance of plants makes walking along the promenade gives the appearance of walking through the jungle, on a much more improvised than it really is.

First of all define what is meant by artificial irrigation all that action (other than natural rainfall) is made to bring water to the soil so that it is accessible to the vegetables planted there. This is primarily classified into two types: overhead irrigation or subsurface irrigation.
Within the first turn divided between pressurized irrigation (sprinkler, which in turn are classified as emerging and mobile) and surface irrigation. The pressurized is far more effective at leaf level and usually cover more surface area while economizing on water resources (can also be done with diffusers), the surface, meanwhile, travels or direct impact on the area of land to water (an option but recommended is the drip irrigation ).
We are talking directly from the ground, and is effective to the extent that the water arrives directly and rapidly to the part of the plant that requires more, namely the root zone.
The second is that the underground irrigation, however, requires a previous installation of plumbing pre special advantages being one of the best use of water and as pointed out the major cost disadvantage of the initial investment.
The arrival of spring completely transformed the aesthetics of the garden, is a time of year when the grass reaches its peak giving a greenish color really impressive, while the flowers and trees are stained different colors providing magic and joy.

Planning an herb garden can be an interesting task. There are those who design such gardens for purely practical to facilitate access to medicines and spices. On the other hand, some gardeners found in herbs can create fun and innovative designs. Seeking advice and with a little creativity, we can plan the best herb garden.
The first thing to do is a list of the species we want to cultivate considering its sizes, shapes and colors. It is also important to consider the needs of growth of selected herbs, such as well-drained soil, the amount of lighting required sunlight, moisture and irrigation needs.
The next step is to select the space for the cultivation of herbs. We have several options such as a solid surface or area seeding in different types of containers. As a form of decoration can add bricks, stones or gravel around each plant to give it a distinct look.
In the case of growing herbs in pots and garden design in these conditions, what we could do is to choose containers striking and remarkable. They may have a design classic but with strong colors or can be of a more modern but more sober tone. Imagination has no limits when it comes to making designs gardens .

Hydroponic garden in small spaces. Many people do not even think about the possibility of a hydroponic garden for some ignorance on the subject, the fact is that this is a trend that is emerging gardening anonymity and increasingly imposed.
Is that the advantages are many and very interesting, including providing abundant harvest is almost organic, and free of weeds. In my opinion it is a highly recommended for you to implement in a small garden or orchard both outside and inside even.
The gardens hydroponics is ideal for small spaces, and therefore those who live in apartments do not have to lose out on the benefits of home gardening. Most inhabitants of floors feel that you cannot run a conventional garden, simply because they have the space and believe that hydroponic gardening but you will avoid the issue.
Because hydroponics depends on essential nutrients to the acute, this is precisely the critical point in making the decision: you must be sure to have forms of renewal and maintenance of the water. A very good idea in this regard, is to start (and learn) in small scale, i.e.: no need to have many square meters to produce tens plant lettuce … Why not starts with two or three? This will allow you to learn and see how to grow and improve your own techniques.
One trend that has marked and continues to do so is the Japanese garden.
Incredibly to what most people think, use the disharmony in their design , as well as introducing small islands and rocks between which no lacks of water, are part of a tradition and oriental philosophy that many hits and captivates.
If you want your garden has touches of Japan, then nothing better than having ponds with plants water, where you also have to incorporate bamboo plants and water if it were possible to a small bridge.
On the ground in the vicinity is ideal to put sand, which can be well raked to make it even if it is oriental.
Another aspect to consider is always within the possibilities that you have, is to make a small way with irregular stones.
These types of gardens are contemplative type or also called gardens sit Zen where people who want to meditate, then there are decorative or walk.
Do you have a garden shed that is just taking up space in your garden because you’re not using it for anything any more? Have you ever thought about turning it into something else instead of just letting it stand there being useless? There is so much you can do with garden sheds that are no longer in use. Here are four suggestions:
Turn it into an office:
Do you have a lack of space in your house to make a proper office? Or do you just simply need some peace and quiet? An alternative would be to renovate your old shed and make it into an office. This suggestion only counts for the warmer seasons as it might be too cold working in an isolated shed during winter. Make sure you have a good lock on the door as you don’t want anything to get stolen. It’s also probably a good idea to bring expensive equipment like computers, hard drives and so on into the house overnight.
Turn it into a music room:
Do you want to listen to or make your own music without disturbing everyone else in the house? The garden shed will be a good idea if you want to separate yourself from the rest of the family whilst relaxing/working. However, if you have close neighbours you still have to be careful with how loud you play your music as they might be a bit irritated if the noise becomes too loud!
Turn it into a playroom
If you have kids you can turn the shed into a playroom where your kids can have their own personal space. A playhouse will create a safe environment close to home and you won’t have to watch them all the time, but they’ll still be close enough for you to keep an eye on.
Turn it into a “man cave”
Take an extension cord and bring your TV and PlayStation into the shed. This can give you some time alone and at the same time you can relax and not disturb the rest of the family. A “man cave” is nice to have if, for example, your wife is having friends over so you can withdraw to a more relaxing place.

As a start worth mentioning a bit more clearly the scope of the title in question: we refer the operation also known as ringing of flowering plants and is a maneuver that should be done with some care, precisely, we will share.
I thought of a way to share questions and answers, starting with …
What tools will I need? Planter or shovel “digger” small rake, garden shears, watering can, pencil and labels.
When do the ringing or transplant? As soon as the seedlings have two chips and the need to avoid getting hurt by being higher.
How do I prepare the final floor? Airing raking and fertilizing. The ideal mix is composed of three equal parts of sand, peat and compost.
How do I proceed? Make a small hole, take the seedlings carefully and put it in it, cover it with soil gently pressing the base and water as possible drip for about 30 minutes. The soil should be constantly moist but not waterlogged.
What else do? If you are ringing in containers, you must move these to a place where enjoy full sunlight, if land is full, the location must meet this same requirement, otherwise … not even try!
