landscape design

If you do not like straight lines and prefer landscape design of your site, then a group of trees to be planted in any one corner.Distance between landings should be at least 4 meters, so they take a lot of space.In this connection it should not occupy the southern part of the garden, or a large part of the territory will be in the shade.But then once there is a problem with the protection of trees from cold northern and northeast winds.We'll have to land rocker plants, departing from fruit plants again by 4 m. From rocker plants preferably those which have a compact root system or, conversely, surface.It can be red rowan, Saskatoon, sea buckthorn and aronia.

Aronia, of course, the plant is low, but then the apple trees can reduce the crown to 2.5 m annual autumn pruning as a central conductor, and trimming the rest of the skeletal branches, which, incidentally, the trees only benefit, as you facilitate harvesting.It can be planted and eaten, but only at the boundaries of your site, with the ditch by th

e roadside, to the roots of spruce trees are not destroyed apple trees.


There is one caveat when landing rocker cultures.Wind flows around a tight barrier on top, but then the cold air descends to earth in the so-called cold point, which is located at a distance of three heights of the barriers.So if chokeberry bush height of 2-2.5 m, then at a distance of 6-7.5 m from its landing in the direction of the cold wind can not plant heat-loving plants, because they would constantly freeze.

to the trees planted group, not to waste a place we can recommend obsadit every apple tree crown of raspberries, placing the bushes in the 50 cm from each other in a circle in the 1 - 1.5 m from the trunk.Or to plant the trees black currants or gooseberries.You can place all zaludit zemleklunikoy under the apple trees.This hybrid strawberries with strawberry adopted from the parent timber of strawberry varieties resistant to partial shade, as in natural conditions grow under the forest canopy.Let grows a carpet, in the woods, without special care.Remember it is only necessary that the plant is very moisture-loving, so do not forget about the regular watering.By reducing crop plantation should be updated.

In the case of the landscape garden path location should be laid winding and narrower than the straight.They should wrap around trees, twisted between them to appear paths in the park or forest.This arrangement landings and trails visually increases space of the garden.Better to use a perennial small islands among the main landings.You can plant perennials in separate groups or individual plants here and there.

With this arrangement, the traditional straight-line garden beds garden is not the best option.Much more elegant will look small mini-beds, the size of only 1 m, placed throughout the site, wherever there is a place for them in the sun.For such compact the beds are much easier to care for.Moreover, they can be very decorative, especially if you combine them planting herbs, vegetables such useful and ornate flowers like nasturtium (of course, the only bush form), calendula (marigold) or marigold (tagetsy).

Do not plant apple and pear one by one in different corners of the garden.It does not create a single composition, besides apple and especially pears - plants cross-pollinated, so need a group of at least two apples or two pears.For their accommodation area need not less than 16-20 m2.You can, of course, to place separately apples and pears, but then it will be difficult to place a stone culture, which can not tolerate the neighborhood of pome.Sometimes, wanting to reduce that dedicated to apple and pear growers buy fashionable now columnar plants, because they have only one trunk and quite a bit shorter, twigs fouling.When planting should take into account the complete lack of decorative drain.This plant.usually unsightly, so do not expose them to the fore.But the cherry - quite ornamental plants, so that they can not hide in the background.At the time of flowering and plums, and cherries are very dressy.Note that strongly inhibits the cherry raspberries, so they are better placed in different places of the garden.

on the southern boundary of the site to create a hedge can be planted raspberries, red and black currants, gooseberries.Red currant does not love his black sister, so it is better not to put side by side, let it grow in different parts of the garden.But with gooseberries red currant is friendly, although they have the same pests, and the depth of the roots of the same occurrence, too.But the requirements for good lighting, watering the soil and feeding them the same, and treatment against pests easier to carry out.

Blackcurrant wonderful coexists with honeysuckle, although the latter, unlike the black currant, no penumbra does not recognize.If the bush is not illuminated by the sun all day, the berries will give a pitiful handful.Since both cultures very hygrophilous, then they need to be watered.I must say that honeysuckle and blackberry are not afraid of frost, so they can be planted on the north side of the site, as long as there is enough sun for honeysuckle.

for sea buckthorn is also possible to allocate the northern part of the site, but not necessarily in the sun.It may well be used as a rocker culture for protection from the cold winds of thermophilic sissies like cherry, plum and apricot.Since the surface of sea buckthorn is widely spreading in all directions, the root system, then it should be limited.To do this, each year on a bayonet spade to cut through the soil around the planting seabuckthorn, so as not to give the root system go beyond the scope of her reserved.The area needs at least two plants, one male, the other female, otherwise the crop will not be.You can not sit next to the sea buckthorn plants with shallow root system, because they simply suffocate sea buckthorn in the struggle for power area.It is very vital and aggressive plant.That is, do not put beside it a black currants, raspberries, strawberries, is the use of such crops will not.Sea Buckthorn - the plant is elegant, so it will decorate the garden.You can, of course, to plant it and a ditch on the side of the road as a green fence.And not just on the north side, but also with any other.But, it is better to put a group in the corner.Seabuckthorn can be grown in the form of weeping, as if its growth gradually decline in its south side, - collect berries easier.Seabuckthorn as saskatoon, undemanding to soil fertility, but prefers soil rich in sand, so consider her wishes on landing.Acidic soil, like most plants, of course, does not like.Because of its shallow root system in spring and early summer, in need of watering.
