Many customers want to take advantage of 'landscaping', but the vague idea that they would receive in the end. Our article will help fill this gap. It tells of how improvement is made territory, in particular, its landscaping, and what steps you have to pass in order to plot became happy owners and guests with its excellent appearance. So, let's begin. Stage I – Development of the project Creating a project on which to base produced planting area – it is a necessary stage of the work. Professionally drawn the project will help avoid unnecessary costs and common mistakes, and will save time spent on landscaping of the site. During the design professionals and the owner of the site, first of all, decide what style will be sustained landscape: – Regular (Classic) – the alternation of trees and shrubs, straight paths, flower parade, the allocation of a significant area under the lawn – landscape – a chaotic, at first glance, planting, symbolizing a truly natural, natural landscape, winding roads and a lack of large flower beds and lawns – east – in this case, landscape design conveys the harmony between nature and man.

This is achieved by using water, plants and stones. A very striking example of oriental style are the Japanese gardens. In During the design is very important to determine where there will be a variety of design elements, consider a system of drainage and other important moments. It is desirable to draw a scale contours of the site to see where and how will carried out landscaping. Of course, the plan must include all sidewalks, lawns, flowerbeds, shrubs and trees and water sources. With all of this should be borne in mind that the landscape in different parts of the site will look different. For example, the north-eastern and northern sides are unfavorable for plants, so there is often planted in semi-shade trees, easily transferring cold (birch, maple, rowan, hawthorn). On the south side, always illuminated by the sun, you can land a more demanding and the heat-loving plants.

Proper planting area will allow you to enjoy the site throughout the year, as different Shrubs and trees will complement each other, forming a single, harmonious appearance. Phase ii – planning of the plot if the hands have a project, the landscaping will bring big problems. In most cases, enough to level the ground where it is necessary that the water flooded the area, and was assigned to its limits. Cases where the outlines really large-scale work (landscaping terraces or alignment of the ravine), are exception to the rule. In such cases, the planned landscape design is time consuming and expensive. Stage iii – engineering and construction work after the site plan must be run communications for irrigation and coverage area, equip the garden paths, complete other planned construction work. Stage iv – The last planting area, but an important stage at which the landscape is decorated with planting planting lawn breakdown of the flower beds, trees and shrubs and other greening activities under the project. As previously mentioned, in the process of landscaping must be created for all plants such conditions in which they grow in nature.
