A Sunken Garden Design – You can make your garden more interesting by providing occasional changes in level. By raising a garden or lowering a paved area, you can create small enclosures that are ideal as sheltered, outdoor living spaces especially when a retaining wall can double as bench seating. On the other hand, you may want to create a sunken haven for shade-loving plants or an elevated patch of lawn to act as a sun trap.
Garden Decks And Steps – A deck provides a perfect means of extending your house into the garden and giving you the opportunity to enjoy an indoor/outdoor lifestyle. By linking the house with the garden, your deck becomes an additional outdoor entertaining and leisure area. Ground-level and raised decks can be built to suit your site and connect with pathway, garden, carport and patio.
As decks are load-bearing and exposed to the elements, careful thought needs to be given to the selection of timber for the bearers and joists, as well as for
the decking itself.
Gardening With Fern Plants – Homeowners with wooded backyards choose ferns for their attractive undergrowth. There are many assortments to choose from. Thousands of varieties of ferns can be found all over the globe. Sizes range from a few inches to as much as 60-feet-tall.
Fern plants thrive and grow in woodlands all over the United States. These eye-catching plants are just as comfortable in the shaded areas of the splendor in the yard. You can place them in areas of little or even no direct sunlight, where little else will cultivate and grow.
