Terms planting hedges
first rule.Make a selection of the right kinds of plants.
What plants are most often used in hedges?
Usually this yew or boxwood.However, a pleasant appearance, fast-growing and with a good smell of lavender and rosemary, is also not new for the middle band of our country.
order to provide themselves with high living fence is best to buy a fifth, or lime, yew can be used.
For the average landings are successful hawthorn, yew, cherry Antique, currants.
For very low - spirea and undersized barberry.
hedges can enclose the entire site or to create a natural-looking breakdown into zones.
course of plantings you will need to look carefully and wait for the results of their labor.If the plants are not fast-growing, it may take a few years of waiting.But the result is sure to Buda.
sometimes not to wait a long time, the owners immediately acquire large areas of the plant.This is not quite the right approach.Correct and cheaper to use small plants not more than thirty centimeters in height.They quickly adapted to the new location and shape, if desired, they betray Buda easier.
on our website in the article "How to choose shrubs for hedges" you can become more closely acquainted with how to carry out a selection of shrubs just for your site depending on the planting of ideas.
second rule.Consider planting plan.
Here you have decided that you'll plant.That's fine.But the order in which you will embark, where it is located?This too is not unimportant.
Some plants can be started up on the perimeter, and the other to provide a zonal division of the entire area.
third rule.Make emphasis on the preparation of the soil.
This is important because the hedges serve you for many years.Fertilizing every year, it is certainly good, but the thorough preparation of the soil before planting, your plants will provide everything necessary for a long time.
prepare the ground, so time and carefully dig, fertilize, and for some species of plants also provide drainage of river pebbles or broken bricks.
When planting soil should be moist and workable.
fourth rule.Plant the plants correctly and on time.All will depend on the type and varietal identity.
most common land carried out in spring and autumn.Plants need time to get accustomed to the new location, and take root until the first frost.
If the choice between the two seasons, then the right thing to spend the autumn soil preparation, dig a pit, and in the spring to make, if necessary, digging, and planted the plants in the ground.
depth of the well should be up to fifty centimeters.It could be less or more, depending on what you are going to plant.Width of about sixty - seventy centimeters.Always be very careful about the root system.Try not to hurt her.
a very convenient way of planting are: straight line and checkerboard pattern.It is important to keep the distance between rows and between plants in a row.Typically, the space from one culture to another should not be less than forty centimeters.
still depends on how high you want to make a landing.If the normal height of your plants is about two meters, when very close (to thirty centimeters) your location to each other vegetation will be less brisk growth and make up to one and a half meters in height.
course to shorten the landing, you can use the upper branches pruning that is very effective, since the side branches will provide more shoots.
And if there are intentions of the decorative fence, then without giving the appropriate form is necessary.
mowing in the autumn or spring.
After planting spring in pits or trenches, the plant is filled with soil, as a rule, to such an extent that the land for a couple of centimeters to hide the root neck.Then they trample down the soil and irrigate.
Watering can watering of the root, and you can do around the landing shallow trench and fill it with water.If to the second method, you do not resort, when watering to prevent water flowed on both sides before landing make small mounds of earth.
In dry hot weather and need watering appropriate.This is especially true of young newly planted trees.The first year of care should be especially careful.It is then when you take root crops and root, you can relax a little.
can immediately prior to crop planting seedlings upper branches.But do not overdo it.The plant should start to rise from the ground at a distance of thirty centimeters.
If you choose plant windbreaks, then planted them in one or two rows around the perimeter of the site.With such a distance between the planting crops in a row of at least two meters, and between the rows of three - four meters.All of course depends on the activity of growth and final size of your pet.
From planting to the border area must also be a distance of at least two meters, otherwise you go to someone else's territory, and it's not every neighbor is fun.
important to remember dressing.Everything will depend on the soil in which you plant the plant and on what kinds are planted.Chemical fertilizers can be made in the autumn of times, carefully move them to the soil.In the spring all over again dig and plant your plants.
watering can be carried out using a liquid fertilizer.It is very convenient.
before the winter season is to cover the soil around the stem with dry leaves.This will serve as an additional layer of protection from frost.
fifth rule.For his work should be treated creatively.
Pick everything to your taste and remember the flowering period.It will look beautiful garden where flowering is provided and the spring and summer.
In the garden a wide space for your thoughts.Hedge - one of the elements on which to develop a flight of fancy.I am referring to the height of the planting plants and differences of density and color variation and making your fence respective interesting shapes.
