When all the large-scale work on the site is over - the house is erected, the fence is built, the trees are planted, the paths are laid, and the sites are paved, it is time to think over the design of the flower beds in the country house in order to give your own suburban ownership a complete look. An inhabited, cozy hacienda is unthinkable without beautiful flower beds that create a mood and a joyful feeling of suburban life.
When wood fits into the design of the site more organically, the walls of the flower bed can be made of wood.
The original raised flower bed made of boards or wooden slats
The easiest option is to build a flowerpot from an old wooden tub or tub. At the tub, you need to knock out the bottom and treat the inner surface of the walls with a protective compound. At the installation site of the flowerpot, it is necessary to remove the sod, fill the recess with rubble, install a flowerpot, fill it with soil and plant the plants.
Flowerbeds with wooden walls made of boards or slats
If you want to make a large flower bed, for the walls you can use planks 2 - 2.5 cm thick and 8 - 10 cm wide, the ends of the planks, which will be buried, trim them in the form of pegs and burn (or tar). Choose a place for the flower bed, outline the shape, remove the sod over the entire area by 15 - 20 cm, and dig a groove around the perimeter to the same depth. Treat the boards with a protective compound. Having installed the pegs-boards in the groove, hammer them into the ground with the blows of a mallet. Place the boards as tightly as possible to each other.
Flowerbeds with wooden walls made of boards or slats
Fill a wooden container with soil. To prevent the boards from moving apart, tighten them with hoops, the role of which can be played by steel packing tape, which is nailed or screwed to the boards.
Recently, this type of flower garden as a mixborder is gaining more and more popularity. A mixborder is an elongated flower bed in which flowering plants of various types are planted.
The location of the mixborder is similar to the rabatka, along the buildings. This type of bed can be not only one-sided, but also two-sided. When creating this type of flower garden, it is not necessary to strictly observe the geometry, because a mixborder is, first of all, a combination of free forms with a variety of colors.
For a mixborder, landscape designers recommend making beds from 1.5 to 4 meters wide, if you plan to plant tall plants in this flowerbed, then you need to place them either in the background or in the center. The basic plants of such a flower garden will be flowering plants of the same age, additional bulbous types of flowers, the flowering of which occurs in early spring, and the final chord will be blooming plants for a long time.
When forming a mixborder, it must be borne in mind that the taller the plants are used for planting in a flower garden and the longer the size of the flower bed, the larger the bed should be.
