Harmony balances other design principles by bringing together individual components and creating a coherent whole, ensuring that all parts of the design fit and complement each other (Figure 19-26). Figure 19 - 22. This simple design does not overwhelm the small back yard. A dwarf Japanese maple, a bit of chartreuse cover, and a stone path leading to a bench make this space seem larger than it is while remaining comfortable. Figure 19 - 23. Different colors of heather, seen in both the foreground and the background, are rep- resented in this landscape. These repetitive groupings are not boring but lend rather unity to design. Figure 19-24. There are strong horizontal lines in this landscape with the stone wall, the colorful perennials and the wisteria arbor. These lines draw attention across the landscape.
Then add gravel on the sides and on the top before covering the pipe. The perforated drain hose is also available with the sock in place. A dry well is simply a large hole filled with gravel or other aggregate that picks up the excess water and holds it up as it penetrates the soil. You can increase the capacity of a dry well by burying barrels of special dry wells. These plastic containers collect the water and hold it as it flows through the holes on the sides and bottom. Containers should be surrounded by gravel or other porous material to allow drainage. You can stack these dry plastic wells or place them side by side. In general, a dry well should be large enough to collect the first 10 or 15 minutes of heavy rain. Websites like ndspro.com provide tips and calculators to help you determine the size of your dry well.
For over 13 years, we rely on Shreckhise Landscape and Design to pass us from plants and trees to a beautiful landscaped house. Jim did it in five steps, always carefully integrating the new plantings with the previous ones. We have an attractive, aesthetic, year-round landscaping that requires little maintenance. Looking forward to working with Jim and Trent. Their work is absolutely masterful!
The journey through the garden is like a story that begins when you enter the garden. The story continues as one moves through twists along a path, guided by focal points that predict what happens next. Finally, a highlight in the garden trip occurs at a destination - the garden activity room. The story is not finished yet. It resumes as you leave the room and the gradual transition out of space begins to move to the next destination or leave the garden. The language of the models is a philosophy developed by Christopher Alexander (emeritus professor of architecture at the University of California, Berkeley).
It's beautiful when it blooms, but it's such a fragile tree that we worry when we have big storms. And berries. So horrible. We live on the downhill slope with a high house behind us and consider our options for a 'green foliage' for more privacy. It's a fabulous post! So much information I had no idea! Thank you for connecting to Whatever Goes Wednesday. It was the most watched link of last week, so we will present it at tomorrow's party. Stop and party with us if you have the opportunity !! Super post! Featuring Family Fun Friday and Pinned.â € ™, Monica.
Do you have problems with flooding, hugs of old shrubs, and lack of privacy? That was the case for writers Helen Thompson and Charles Lohrmann when they …
