Buying a property is always a milestone and it is sometimes difficult to project in his new home, both inside and outside. If the redevelopment of the House is often based on fixed criteria such as the surface of the pieces, the color of the walls, materials on the ground, the rearrangement of the garden requires any thought, since it depends on factors that are sometimes difficult to control. The methods are simple to identify it quickly! Here’s a roundup of the criteria to be taken into account to enjoy all the splendor of your new outdoor space and make your new green paradise.
- Determine the Exposure of Your Garden
Who said that a north-facing garden may not be as lush as an exterior facing South?All is to select plants adapted to the exposure of your property. For example, varieties Hardy and resistant to low temperatures will be preferred for a garden facing north. Southern exposure, however, will benefit from a hot sun and call less demanding plants during the winter and supporting more droughts in the summer.
If your garden has two types of exposure, look at existing plants, their health status and make the necessary replacements if some grey mine…
- Assess the layout of your space
This step is important to grant you a green space both aesthetic and functional.Keep in mind that he be judged balance of your garden and distribution different elements, both for the plants that the mineralized areas.We find walkways everywhere, or massive tail.
The main paths, for example, must serve an entry, unlike the side aisles, which can meander your ground in a less rigorous way.
A shrub massive asking a major maintenance should be easy to access and more in view than a free massive with less demanding plants.
- View the different layers of your garden
A living garden is a well proportioned Garden since the gaze is instinctively attracted by elements in relief.View: when you look in front of you, you first see the bright colors, the elements that move, or even those who are in relief.
So, when you think about your new green space, you need layers medium or high, as the massive bushy or wooded, which will hang the look.
Ecologically speaking, the different levels of your garden are refuges for insects and animals! So if your garden is too flat, give him!
4 Adapt the nomenclature of your garden
A garden must be shaped so as to meet the needs of the whole family. Everything is a matter of taste… and practicality! A family with children will prefer a garden with large grassed areas, while a childless couple will perhaps more attracted to a provided design terrace in plants!
If your space is not yet adapted to your desires, thankfully: everything is possible!
Tip: If you do not feel the soul of a gardener, feel free to consult a landscape professional or to a specialized body (CAUE, associations…).
5.Enjoy the texture and structure of your soil
In other words, to enjoy on the one hand the grain size of your soil, the proportion of fine particles (clay), medium (silt) and coarse (sand), and the mode of Assembly of particles between them, is the porosity of your soil. Indeed, how do I know what plants plant without knowing the quality of the field?
Tip: A land that sticks to the fingers is a clay, while a land that water is a sandy land. Take the test!
- Observe wildlife from your floor
Wildlife in the garden is a reflection of the type of maintenance that we advised him.One of the elements to take into account when you arrive in your new landscape space is indeed to observe life… underground, on land and in the air!
An intense bacterial life and the presence of worms in your soil are synonymous of a land in good health! Earthworms are great tillers and facilitate the passage of water and air in the Earth. This therefore improves your soil structure and increases fertility.
- On Earth
The presence of small animals such as hedgehogs is a very good indicator of the quality of your garden. Hedgehogs feed indeed on insects like slugs, spiders, earthworms, of fruits, mushrooms… If your garden is healthy, hedgehogs will find refuge! Beware, this is all still not systematic.
- In the air
Look well if insects are many around you and especially pollinators are waiting! If this is the case, it’s your garden offers a diversity of bee plants and the use of plant protection products is limited or nonexistent.
7 Look at the type of management set up
Management of the areas speaks volumes about the maintenance of your garden according to TOPPHARMACYSCHOOLS. Some opt for a greener garden management environment and it shows! This means to use less pesticides and intensive passages (mowing, weeding, size…).
For example, consider your lawn: is she mowed regularly? A regular cutting is guessed to dense and thick strands. Less frequent mowing, on the other hand, will allow the appearance of perennials and greater plant diversity. This also applies if the shrubby massifs are left in free form or architectural or even if massive feet are not covered mulching but only of land…
Attention: Own maintaining a garden also determines the reactions of your plants to external factors (pests, fungi, or diseases in response to weather fluctuations). More plants will be controlled, they will be vulnerable.
