living wall as a way to dissociate itself from the street, strangers prying eyes and the active intervention of a small private world, many regarded as the best option to reduce the impact on the environment the level of comfort of the estate.This natural shield is perceived as natural - visually pleasing and a positive spirit.Not surprisingly, the hedges in the country are increasingly at the center of interest of the owners of the yard or front garden.Fence as if conserved, with a conditional order to - to clearly define the limits of personal space family members.


However, in the gardening area may not be one to build such a nice "line" separatingon some p

arts of the neighborhood.And she does not have to go around the perimeter of our possessions.It is enough common situation is broken down suburban land into several pieces, designated in terms of development, and deployment of the right accents to use different areas for specific purposes.They really need to somehow distinguish between - with practical, decorative purpose.Aesthetically "blends" in the landscape of fresh barerchik is the best solution to this problem.

Selection of place - the question №1 ↑

starting position for truckers, trying not to spoil the overall impression of a conglomeration of building structures - it is entering into the project plan mini-complex such "fences", with precise indication of their location.Where - a rational and artistic points of view - they should settle down?In addition to the appointment to serve a fence-wall, in such "man-made hills" there are other functions: to create a background for the flowers, "shade" park paths, separate the recreation area from hozbloka, block access to the wind and street dust in the courtyard, protect from troubles of children and animalsto become a reference point for visitors to the area difficult.

Bench with Fencing
Live "heel" to the ordinary garden bench is able to decorate a garden like nothing else

fans yew, barberry and dogwood makes sense to pay attention to the place of shadow, or those where the sun "flickers" for a short time - early morning or late evening.Boxwood, buckthorn and juniper also prefer to "live" in the shadows, like hazel.The composition of the soil is not less significant: for conifers suitable weakly acidic medium for the barberry and hawthorn - the average level of acidity.Note: a plant traditionally "gleaned" as a base for the creation of green "tree", can grow up to a certain width.Many have to cut."Slender" culture will have to plant 2-3 lines.

Types and selection of the type and shape of the fence ↑

  • «Delineate" border tracks, lawns, flower beds help low curbs - "rostochkom" from half a meter to a meter (occasionally and smaller).
  • divide the territory to certain functional areas allow zelenolisto-coniferous "wall" in the height of one or two meters.
  • natural ramparts in two, three or more meters in height - is the best way to limit the entire area.

There are fences and intensity shearing plants.The largest division is on this principle - it is free and the growing ranks of the molded-fences.Those that are allowed to grow relatively freely, become elements of landscape, created in landscape style underlined.They, too, from time to time pruned, but deliberately, seriously do not cut.Trimming and grooming - operations are different.As a result, "vows" object attached to a clear geometric shape."The shell" may be "born" the most bizarre: from the angular squares, rectangles - to rounded, pyramidal and complex sculptures.

Decorative ladshaft
purely decorative landscape using hedges created quite successfully

choice of the form "natural" fences-island still dictate and finances.Regarding the implementation of the budget will be the cultivation of solid walls, much more expensive - arched shape or design complicated geometric shapes - many-sided pyramid or chain, which is lined up the outlines of animals, fantastic creatures.For haircuts "participants" so ingenious compositions simple chainsaw and trimmer may not be enough.Those who wish to get acquainted with interesting ideas to create a hedge Photo dozens of examples selected from our gallery will help you choose the right project - perhaps more than one.

Those who are going to "build" mini-bordyurchik below half a meter, zhivorastuschy barrier height of half a meter, the meter would be a good idea to pay attention to trees, bushes thornless: alpine currant, euonymus Fortune, ovalnolistuyu privet, purple willow, bloodroot (daurskuju or shrub), currants (golden or alpine)Western fifth.From rock spiny can recommend barberry, buckthorn, wild rose, thorns (blackthorn), Japanese quince.Determine in advance, I would like you to have an evergreen (and possibly semi-evergreen) "fence" or purely deciduous, dropping cover fall.This is an important clarification.

Fence Spruce
Spruce - perfect material for freely growing Fences

If you plan to grow a "wall" in the meter or two tall, then as a thornless elements makes sense to use European euonymus, Loch Ebbing, common laurel, cypress (Lawson, Leyland), Ligustrum vulgare.Cotoneaster with kalinolistnym physocarpus, honeysuckle and lilacs (both ordinary and Hungarian) will also be good.Evergreen Siberian fir, spruce (Eastern, Siberian), red cedar but the already mentioned variety of arborvitae will complete this series.Barbed suit juniper pine, silvery loh (as an option - uzkolisty) trehkolyuchkovaya honey locust, Siberian hawthorn.

Maple ginnal

The easiest way to pull a cord to start - and already it dig a trench, delves into the soil at 40-60 cm. The bandwidth depends on the number of rows.If hedge their own hands is planned as single-row barrier shield, then 40-50 cm - the norm.It is assumed a number or two - so each will have to add to the initial value of 30-40 cm. Clearly, the type and dimensions of the adult cultures also influence the width of the pit digs.As to the distance between the bushes, trees.General rules suggest, between seedlings should be 20-25 cm in the case of single-row landing.For double stenochki reasonably arrange the planting material in a checkerboard pattern, with a gap fit into 30-50 cm.

Combinations of plants species
Do not forget about the possibility of a combination of rocks in the construction of a spectacular two-hedge

Planting unilinearly better breed, giving very dense branching and abundantscrub (hawthorn, currant, cotoneaster, spirea).Doubles order suits "living creatures" with the rather loose branching (buckthorn, Acacia honey locust-loh).Before the drop in the hole as the young seedlings, "down" should be covered with a layer of fertile soil.It is best to put on the bottom of the compost or rotted manure.When future bushes, trees have already settled in the trench, the soil around each put a little crimp, to water and grind, the upper part sprinkled with peat mulch.When planting seedlings is recommended to trim.The optimum age for planting deciduous - 2-3 years.Conifers should be "older" - about 3-4 years.

Colorful and hedge-row
Apply a maximum of imagination and hard work - and you "grow" a fabulously beautiful fence - multi-colored and two-row

Care and grooming-pruning ↑

In the first year seedlings have any particular problems arise.It is only necessary to pull out the weeds.You can proryhlit ground.Later proceed to careful pruning haircut - a couple of times a year: at the time of leaf fall and before the advent of the kidney (ie, in the fall or spring) plus summer.Summer "bleed" (turn of June and July, at least - August) is carried out after the suspension of shoot growth.They do not require special pruning arborvitae and larch, although one and the other can be slightly cut - there is a will and enough imagination to imagine the end result of the effort.Need for cutting the top and sides.Cannon - clippers.Cut about one-third of the annual shoots.If the gaps are formed, in place of the dried members placed a new, fresh.
