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.
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.

Anatomy of a French drain: A typical French drain consists of a perforated pipe - usually made of lightweight, flexible plastic - wrapped with a fabric sock to prevent dirt and grime. sand to plug the pipe. The pipe is buried in a trench andnded by approval. Water enters the pipe, from an entrance to an end, through the earth, or through long narrow grids spaced along its length, and is dispersed throughout the aggregate and in the soil. Install the pipe in a trench: Connect the lengths of pipe and place them on a bed of gravel.
