The lawn and garden in a residential place or even in a commercial place produces either good or bad ambiance. A beautiful lawn and garden can provide relaxation to the people, especially when it comes with a craftily made landscape design. A lovely and healthy lawn and garden can resist the destruction from injurious weeds, pests and illnesses, and is truly beneficial to the surroundings. Creating a delightful and well-fit lawn or garden must be planned, completed, and maintained with utmost care and dedication.
There are factors to be considered in making a wonderful lawn and garden. It is imperative to develop a fertile soil with the suitable acidity balance, nutrients, and appropriate texture. Utilize the type of grass that suits the growing conditions, and weather or atmosphere in your location. If for instance, your area is rainy most days of the year, it will be beneficial to plant the type of grass that needs lots of water. Also, take note that a thicker lawn will help to outdo the weeds. Healthy lawn and gardens with longer grasses, approximately three inches, can make it difficult for weeds to root and grow. Longer grass has tough roots that can better retain water. Water your lawn and garden in the morning, probably from six to nine AM and preferably in short time durations so the soil will be able to absorb the water. Proper thickness of thatch grown in the grass must be observed so as not to hinder the water and nutrients from reaching the roots of the grass. Never over use inorganic fertilizer because it can produce very thick layers of thatch, and be aware of the types of grasses that are prone to thatch growth. Pesticides must be used according to the instructions label.
After mowing the lawn, let some of the grass trimmings remain because they will be absorbed as nutrients to the soil. Also allow your lawn to breathe by taking out small amounts of soil once a year. This will aerate the roots of the grass.
When using the lawnmower be sure that the gas tank and gas containers do not have any leaks. Such containers can also exude hydrocarbons, which are hazardous to the environment. You have to use the proper containers. Refuel the equipment in a concrete or asphalt area and utilize a funnel in order to avoid spillage or splashing of gasoline to the lawn and to the equipment itself. Find a well-ventilated area where you can perform the fueling in order to diffuse the vapors. Keep the gasoline in a properly sealed container and in a cool and dry area. Do not place it under direct sunlight and do not place it on top of a cabinet or in the trunk of a vehicle to avoid falling and spillage. Make sure that the gasoline will not spill on the ground or close to wells. Dispose of gasoline properly and if necessary ask for some assistance from the disposal unit of your town. Responsibility to the environment must always be given attention while trying to maintain a lawn and garden.
Fencing your lawn and garden is also an important part of the landscaping picture. It does not only prevent strangers from entering your yard and home, but it also adds an accent to your overall landscape. There are many different types of fences that you could choose from such as chain link fences, split rail fence, privacy fence, or a white picket fence.
Another good idea to liven up your lawn and garden is to install a garden fountain or a small pond. The sound of falling water is very calming and gives a serene feeling to the ambiance of your landscape design. Running water is also considered good luck in some cultures.
