Small pots will quickly become rootbound. Remember that you will have to re-pot, eventually. It's easy to tell when it's needed because the small roots start to stick to the bottom. A word of caution about potting: Make sure you give a plant enough time to acclimatize to its new pot before repotting again. There are two ways that fertilization can be a mistake. The first does not do it at all. The other fertilizes too much or fertilizes badly. Ask someone at your garden center to recommend a suitable fertilizer for your garden. It's a good idea to do it at least twice a year, once in the spring and fall.
Thanks again. Happy Sharefest. And I hope you have a good weekend! Hey, through the DIY Sunday Showcase link! This March will be the beginning of our third year in our house and before we have moved into the previous owners did nothing with the landscaping landscaped. I do not put too much effort to be out with all the insects when it's warmer, so I want something that looks nice but is easy to maintain. This message is very useful, thank you for sharing! And I'll do anything I can to avoid a mustache . Hi, Leslie, I'm letting you know that I'll be presenting your landscaping tips tomorrow night on Best of the Weekend!
The effective use of color can enlarge the space. The distant objects appear with a fine gray texture to the eye. The use of gray and fine-textured plants at the edge of the landscape can increase the apparent distance between the viewer and the plant. Tapering aisles or plantations towards a vanishing point can also create an illusion of distance. The use of strong colors and coarse textures in front of a border helps to enlarge the area. To make the space smaller, reverse this concept and use bright colors and coarse textures in the back and softer colors and finer textures at the front.
Use plants of the appropriate size and habit to avoid constant size. Use mulch to control weeds. See Mulch for the landscape (http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/mg251). Group the trees in large, self-mulched beds for natural areas. Use fences and other hardscape elements to control the wild appearance of some native people. Sometimes, a structural element is all that is needed for a more neat look. Look at existing drainage patterns. Use ditches, dry wells, French drains, dry creek beds, berms and low retention areas to slow the movement of water and allow water to be retained on site , where the plants can absorb it.
