Garden Path Edging

Garden Path Edging

Garden Path Edging – Edgings can he used to dress up a plain path, provide crisp lines between paving and landscaping materials, or hold paving slabs or bricks in place. In most cases, all you need to do is decide on the material you’d like to use, excavate shallow trenches on each side of the path, and stake or set the edging in place. However, integral concrete edging needs to be made at the same time as the path.

Edging options

Edging materials can vary just as much as the paving they border. Choose from concrete, brick, stone, tile or timber.

Creating A Jungle In Your Backyard

Creating A Jungle In Your Backyard

Creating A Jungle In Your Backyard – Creating a hardy jungle. A jungle is lush with foliage, with many large, differently shaped leaves growing at different heights in curtains of green, all overlapping and intertwining. You can create this effect in the garden by using vigorous climbers in association with large-leaved hardy plants. Many plants grow very tall in the jungle, climbing up into the trees towards the light. You can simulate the height of a forest canopy by installing tall scaffolding screens. Make sure the scaffolding is robust and firmly fixed because many plants become very heavy when in leaf and need strong supports.

Garden In The Barrels

Garden In The Barrels

Garden In The Barrels – During the creation of your garden you may find that you require an especially big container – perhaps to grow shrubs, small trees, or simply a large planting. Garden centers now have a wide range on sale, including ceramic and terracotta tubs, fiberglass planters, and old beer barrels. There is also scope for improvisation. Bread crocks and various other vessels from the kitchen can be used as container for growing plants, if you drill holes in the base.


Fiberglass. As fiberglass can easily be molded to any shape, and colored in any shade, it is widely used to make simple plant tubs or replicas of wooden Versailles planters, elaborate lead vessels, and other antique containers that are hard to find and extremely expensive.

Elements Of Informal Garden

Elements Of Informal Garden

Elements Of Informal Garden – Informal gardens do not have the straight walks and avenues that create obvious places for focal points. Their curves and hidden spaces should reveal eye-catching surprises at the last minute. As you round a corner, you should be confronted by something to please, astonish or amuse.

Sculptures should have a sense of movement; this is why animal sculptures often work well. How you place these eye-catchers is all-important because, as they will probably be approached from many different directions, they must look good from all angles. Sculptures will enhance wherever they are situated: they can be hidden behind foliage, hung from the branch of a tree or placed beside a pool or pond.
