Even a small stand-alone unit on a patio should look like its surroundings. You can use natural stone to build it, or you can use the same stone or the same material that you find on the house. Do not use too much material or the effort can turn around. A good rule is to not use more than three elements in an area, or the area may be too busy. Instead of pounding the lawn and making an improvised path of dead grass between your patio, fireplace and garden, create an attractive walkway using concrete, natural slab, brick bricks Corative, or crushed stone.

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.
Obviously, it is easier to create a ditch before sowing or compacting your garden, but if necessary, you can cut the grass with a grass cutter and replace it when you have recalibrated. If you have a low point in your garden that tends to collect and retain water, consider building a rain garden. A rain garden is simply an area of your garden that is designed to catch water and is filled with plants that like water. It does not really cure a garden problem soaked, but a rain garden looks much better than a muddy hole. In addition, rain gardens are good for the environment. They reduce the runoff and chemicals of the lawn, the pet waste and the sediments that go with it. A rain garden does not need to hold water like a pond. You can add drainage and use the rain garden to retain the excess water until it has a chance to flow.
