These areas should be considered as “undrained areas”. Utilities must be marked when developing the base plan because some design decisions may be based on the location of the lines. The service must return and mark again before landscape installation if the lines are gone. Figure 19 – 31 is an example of what can happen when utility lines and rights-of-way are ignored by a gardener. Triangulation makes it possible to precisely determine the location of existing trees and shrubs on the property so that they can be marked on the base plan. To triangulate, use two known fixed points.
On the stems: The branches where the leaves are fallen are dead and seem to have brown streaks on the inside. On the roots: I do not remember how much I planted it. When I scraped the ground, I was able to pull out 3 inches before getting to the root spurt on the trunk. The roots were dark and slimy. Step 9. Share the damage to the plant and the specific parts of the plant: Where are the degrades observed on the plant? In about 50% of the canopy. When did you notice this problem? The tree never took off after planting. It has decreased in the last two years and this spring, it really started to be bad.
Automatically generate a list of materials or create shopping lists and purchase lists. Choose options for deck roofs, foundations, surrounds, deck boards and railing styles.

This landscape is a combination of trails, fencing and stairs with green grass and plants. One of the best natural elements that can be used in landscaping are rocks. There are many ways to use rocks to your advantage. An outdoor fireplace can be very useful especially during the fall and spring. Trails can create a solid look on your backyard. The patio should not be exposed to excessive sun exposure. It is a beautiful backyard with rest areas, rock alleys with vibrant plants. It also has privacy factors with superior lighting. The back pool is the main element of this landscaping.
Plant twice as much as necessary, thinking that they will be enlightened in a few years, double the cost of labor, and often the clearing never happens. Plants become overpopulated and compete for water and nutrients. The stressed and overpopulated plants are more susceptible to the depredation caused by insects and plant diseases. Pests lead to unattractive, low maintenance plants that must be removed because they are unhealthy.

A horizontal floor plan changes from a stone path to a wooden platform. Figure 19 - 10. This vertical plane is defined by the two facades of brick buildings. With a clearly defined path, this space can be called an outdoor hallway. Figure 19 - 11. Trees define the vertical walls of this space. Trees have been selected on a human scale in this pedestrian path. This same scheme is often used to define the vehicular corridors of cars, but the trees are larger for the vehicles. Figure 19 - 12. An air plane defined by these iron sculptures. These sculptures act as trellises that the vines grow to cover and in the shade of the walkway.
Collecting water with rain barrels is an extremely easy (and environmentally friendly) way to water your plants. “We have a rain barrel and it’s fixed on the downspout, so all the water comes out of the roof of your house,” says Peyton. Or it could be as simple as letting a trash can fill with water. For a low-maintenance outdoor cooking space, invest in appliances that last. “If you want something that will stand the test of time, opt for a built-in barbecue with a stone veneer on the front,” says Peyton. A sturdy granite countertop is also a durable feature, and it is ideal for resisting varied weather conditions.
Basic green technologies such as smart tree placement and green roofs and walls can be used to dramatically reduce energy consumption inside homes. If the trees are strategically placed, they can reduce the energy needs of cooling by 7 to 47% during the summer and from 2 to 8% the heating needs in the winter. (Sources: Washington Post and Reducing Urban Heat Islands: Compendium of Strategies, Trees and Vegetation, USEPA) In addition, well-designed residential green roofs, which are becoming increasingly popular in some parts of the world, can reduce energy consumption in the summer. and winter.
A factory-designated USDA hardiness zone (the USDA has an interactive zone map on its website) is a starting point to understand its environmental requirements. Plant tags in the nursery also provide information about the environment. Use plant databases from credible websites such as NC State University’s NC State Plant Extension database or other university extension programs, as well as books from horticulturists, botanists and ecologists. The main design factors to consider in plant breeding include plant growth habit, adult size, flowering cycle, and seasonal interest. Knowing the size of the mature plant is essential for spacing the plantations to fit the mature height and width.
