To help you see clearly, discover the details in the article. Legislation on the Garden Shed Like all construction work, installing a garden shed is also subject to regulations. When you build a shed of less than 20 m², a simple declaration of works to the town hall is sufficient.

What Trees Can Teach Us About Biblical Characters and Events?

I always like to start with something personal, so please bear it with me! As a kid, I grew up spending a good amount of time in the presence of plants, flowers and trees on a weekly basis with my father in our garden. He loved gardening as much as he loved us and gardening, for him, represented that simple aspect of giving back to that which gives us life. Back then, we had a garden filled with flowers, especially lilacs and the Lisianthus used to look so soft to me. However, I was never really a fan of flowers. It’s true that the popping colors and shapes of flowers are really captivating and I’m sure there are plenty of reasons why most people love flowers, yet I cannot relate to any of them. However, I’ve always loved trees. When I pass them, I can’t help savoring their beauty. I…

Whether it’s the optimal time of day to water your plants or how to properly get rid of slugs, most novice gardeners have a lot of questions – and a lot of mistakes – on their road to creating their ideal outdoor area. I’ve seen plenty of gardeners make blunders while tending to their plants as a green-fingered professional, so we asked him to reveal the most common mistakes — and what you should be doing instead… 1. Ineffective Watering Technique Many people water their plants at the wrong time of day. You’ll lose a lot of moisture through evaporation if you water in the heat of the day, and the water droplets on foliage can act as magnifying glasses for the sun, burning the leaves. To conserve moisture and safeguard the fragile leaves, water your plant first thing in the morning or last thing at night. Another typical blunder…

Beautiful Biblical Scriptures About Gardens and Gardening

There are a lot of good gardening books out there. Often what is good will depend on where you live or what you are looking for. Years ago, I’d recommend you Toby Hemenway’s Gaia’s Garden if you were growing food in your backyard. Or, if you’d live in the UK, I’d say “get a book by Alan Titchmarsh.” However, here I am today, telling you that the best book about gardening, plants, sowing seeds and harvest is the Bible. From John 15:1-8 The Vine and the Branches “I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. 2 He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes[a] so that it will be even more fruitful. 3 You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. 4 Remain in me, as I also remain in…

You have to prepare your garden soil before planting anything… and I think that this is most applicable during spring. Do you till, double-dig, or roughly turn in compost to prepare your beds, or are you a no-tiller that relies on a passive method? Garden preparation techniques aren’t just about growing healthy plants in good soil. They are also an organic gardener’s most significant tool for all-natural weed control. The best practices, when implemented at the right moment, can prevent or at least minimize them from gaining a foothold. When I first started gardening, I always turned or tilled the soil thoroughly. Today, I know that such soil disturbance can actually unearth weed seeds, which can subsequently grow, so when I want to convert a portion of lawn to garden use or smother a weedy area in an existing bed, I adopt a less-is-more technique. Every gardener and setting in…
