About construction in our garden

Considering the versatility of what we can learn from children about construction in our garden over time, you should endeavor to refurbish it less specifically, so that not to be obliged to do it again when you decide to use it differently. Well, you may be more particular when it comes to refurbishing your kitchen and shower room, supposedly maintaining their use as such. But even in this case, you can’t ignore the need for consistency with the main room, in relation to style or color scheme.

As concerns the kitchen, both for the sake of its cleanness and aesthetic look, you could tile it in marble, especially in some shades not far from white, such as latte, milky, creamy or honey nuances that could match almost any color you’ll settle for in the main room. If you use also unpolished tiles, they will look both natural and neutral, exactly the combination you need.

Concerning the shower room, this will be for sure a separate room and, as such, your refurbishment scope will be wider, both in terms of color and material. Still, you couldn’t allow strong contrasts, spoiling the overall harmony of your garden building; for example, there is no way a shower room tiled with vivid red travertine could match a main room in a minimalist style and subdued colors. But marble tiles in pastels and simple patterns would look warm and be likely to fit both the style and color palette of the main room.

Regarding the latter, if you mean it to serve as a dining room or garden office, then a formal, easy to clean floor would be fitting; therefore, natural stone would be a sensible choice. But if, on the contrary, you consider some living functions such as summerhouse, guest room or children room, then the more casual and warmer laminated timber floor would be superior. As to the walls, considering the same versatility of your garden construction, keep them better painted in light shades, to be sure to fit not only future color schemes imposed by different uses, but also whatever furniture items and accessories you may bring in here over time.

Complete guide to construct a new graden

There is likely a location on your property where you would probably like to have a garden with lovely blossoming plants ready to greet you and warm your heart. This specific place may be at the end of your driveway or your front or back patio or porch. However desirable these locations could be for a selection of attractive flowers, there might be rocks or maybe concrete that eliminate planting. Read on for a very simple way to create a new garden anyplace you wish in just a few of hours.

The first thing you need to do is collect the needed tools and materials. You will definitely need some type of hand spade, a knife, and a hand saw, a hammer, plus some nails for tools. The materials you’ll need are at the very least one large bag of potting soil, seeds for the plants you wish, mulch, as well as some pressure treated 2X6 dimensional lumber.

To create the new garden, place the bag of potting soil where you would like the new garden to be. Use the blade to produce a long slice along the center of the top of the bag, parallel to the longest edge. Next, make perpendicular slices at each end to develop a letter H-shaped opening in the top of the potting soil bag and fold back the flaps.

Push your hand spade through the potting soil and pierce the bottom of the bag in a few places. These holes will be your water drainage openings for unneeded water. Next, place your seeds into the soil. You have right now resulted in a new garden! This makeshift area of raised ground is the place where your new plants are going to grow.

As soon as your new garden seedling bed blooms, you may want to think about including more plants and color. Use smaller container pots to place garlic, an organic insect repellent. In addition plant something that interests frogs, lizards and lady bugs indigenous to your area. These varieties of wildlife enjoy devouring insects and may enjoyably keep your new garden flower bed free of insects and pests.

If you keep the above mentioned tips in mind then when it comes to home garden landscaping you will be able to design something that meets all your particular requirements. So the more time spent in the planning stage will end up saving you a lot of time and money when it comes to actually doing the work. Plus if in the future you choose to move you will find that it has added value on to your home as well.
