Informations About Small Garden Ideas

gh4There are some informations about small garden Ideas:

Create an Outdoor Room
Turn a tiny patio into a gorgeous outdoor room by adding a freestanding pergola. Here, a small wooden pergola was constructed over a gravel patio and enhanced with a teak seating arrangement. The pergola creates a sense of enclosure and makes the patio seem a lot larger then it actually is.

Go Gravel
Crushed brick or gravel is a beautiful and low-maintenance paving option for small gardens. It’s also easier to use and less expensive than brick or flagstone. Just be sure to spread a layer of landscape fabric underneath the gravel to keep weeds from popping through. On this California hillside, the gravel also allows rainfall to percolate through to the soil instead of running off down the hillside.

Capitalize on Trees
If you have large trees with bare spots underneath them, why not put the barren ground to use by creating an outdoor living space? In this small garden, several trees made growing a lawn or flower border impossible. So, the homeowners paved part of the area with flagstone and added a table and chairs.
Small Garden Tip: When you are working under a large tree, be sure to leave any exposed roots alone and never raise the grade around the base of the tree.

Add a Pond
You don’t need a huge backyard to have a water garden. In fact, installing a water garden is a great way to handle low or wet spots in your garden. Just dig out the area, add a pond liner and pump, and you’re on your way. Even a tiny oasis will attract a wide range of colorful butterflies and birds. In this garden, Water Snowflake, Nymphoides humboldtiana, a small relative of water lily, provides color in tight quarters.

Double Your Pleasure
Get twice the flowers and vegetables in your small garden by adding a trellis or low fence behind every planting bed. That way, you can grow vine crops vertically so they don’t sprawl over their plant neighbors. In this narrow garden bed, a trio of rustic wooden trellises support flowering vines at the back of the perennial border.

Trees for Small Spaces
A small yard doesn’t mean you can’t have a gorgeous tree. See these shade-providing beauties that can squeeze into small spots.

Welcome Wildlife
Even a small garden can become a haven for birds and butterflies when you choose flowers they prefer. For example, this square bed is packed with bird and butterfly favorites, such as black-eyed Susan and phlox. A bird feeder and birdhouse add to the garden’s wildlife-friendly features.

Add a Mowing Strip
Keeping turf grass from encroaching in your garden beds is a lot easier when you install a mowing strip at the border’s edge. This mowing strip was specially designed to keep weeds at bay and act as a low-maintenance garden path. It also provides easy, mud-free access to the garden for wheelbarrows, mowers, and other equipment.

Eliminate Lawns
Put every square inch of your backyard to work by removing the sod to create useable outdoor living spaces. In this small courtyard, the turf was torn up and replaced by a gravel base that supports a gorgeous dining table and flower-filled containers. Plus, the homeowners have a lot more time to enjoy the space because they no longer have to mow.

Add Drama
Give small gardens a big boost of style by adding an oversize gate or arbor at one end to act as a focal point. It will draw the eye in and make the space seem larger. Here, a large-scale ornamental entry arbor gives this tiny side yard some visual heft. Plus, it supports a crown of climbing roses. White lilies in the center bed mirror the white roses and arbor.

Curve Walkways
One way to create a sense of space in a small garden is to put some curves into your garden paths. A slightly meandering walkway is always better than a straight path because it will give visitors the sense that they are traveling through a large landscape. Just be sure to make your path wide enough for two people to walk side by side comfortably. This curved concrete path is especially appealing because a ribbon of tile separates each slab of concrete.

Rely on Pots
Enjoy your own corner of paradise by packing your small garden with pots and planters overflowing with flowers and fragrant herbs. In this luxurious backyard, pots of geranium (scented and standard) and marguerite daisy provide the bulk of color surrounding a welcoming teak bench. A large terra-cotta bowl acts as a reflecting pool and birdbath.

Consider the Seasons
When you plan your garden, think about how it’s going to look in all four seasons. Many gardens look terrific in the spring and early summer, but by fall they fade. Choose perennials and annuals that offer late-season color and shrubs and trees that bear colorful berries or interesting bark in the winter. In this tiny front border, a bevy of tulips provide plenty of spring color. After they fade, they are replaced with summer beauties such as geranium and verbena. Holly shrubs, which flank the front door, develop showy red berries that keep the landscape looking good after frost.

Rehab a Shed
If the view from your backyard faces an ugly shed or garage, think about incorporating it into your garden design. On this narrow lot, the only view was of the homeowner’s ugly garage. But with a can of paint and an inexpensive French door, they turned an ugly duckling into a swan. In fact, they were so happy with the transformation, they added a Mediterranean style patio right up against the new garage doors.

Color Your World
Shady backyards are a great place to spend a hot summer afternoon, but too often, they can be a bit dark and dull. Brighten the view with colorful pillows, fabrics, outdoor rugs, and pots in a variety of colors and patterns. This shady deck is now a colorful spot for family fun.

Camouflage Trash
Nothing ruins the view in a small backyard faster than a set of garbage cans blown over in the wind. Instead of having your garbage in plain sight, build a wooden surround to keep them contained. Here, a set of stylish wooden panels camouflages the homeowners garbage with a little space left over for bags of potting soil and extra garden tools. When the gate panel is closed, everything is completely hidden.

Spider Plants, Easy HousePlants II

gh2Spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum) are called this not because they attract and harbor spiders, but rather the little plantlets or offshoots at the ends of long wiry stems are “spidery”. You may see them called “airplane plants” for this reason, too.

This is one of the easiest houseplants to grow, generally being grown in a hanging container to allow the stems to cascade. They’ll form plants about two or more feet wide, and two to three feet long. A NASA study in the 1980’s found that spider plants were one of the top indoor plants for removing formaldehyde and other toxins such as carbon monoxide, common in homes and public spaces now from the off-gassing of synthetic materials.

Leaves come from the base of plants, are rather long (maybe up to a foot long), and rather narrow. It’s probably good that these are grown hanging from raised containers, as cats are fond of chewing on leaves. While the usual spider plants you see have white leaves with green stripes near the edge (the cultivar Vittatum), you can find ones with the opposite—green leaves with white edges (the cultivar Variegatum). This latter cultivar (cultivated variety) tends to have longer leaves than the former. Both will form small white flowers, usually in summer.

Once they form, the little offshoots are plants in miniature with small roots. They often form during the shorter days of fall. You can leave them on for a full plant, or remove some and pot to make new plants. If plants get quite potbound, you can divide them too. Over time, the thick fleshy roots can get so massive they’ll crack containers. Use a potting soil formulated specially for houseplants, not garden soil.

Plants grow best in bright, indirect light. An east window works well, even a south or west one that gets some shade during hot summer days.

Ideal temperatures for spider plants are between 65 and 75 degrees (F) during the day, and maybe 10 degrees cooler at night, but they are fairly tolerant of other temperatures. Just don’t let them get much below 50 degrees in winter, and keep away from drafts near doors and non-insulated windows.

Keep plants watered, but make sure that excess water drains from pots or containers. If a hanging basket, make sure that the draining water doesn’t overflow and ruin floors and furniture. For this reason, and to give plants more humidity that they prefer, water over a sink or bathtub. Too wet soil and roots will rot. Too dry soil and leaf tips turn brown. Check plants every few days for water and, if pot bound, they may need watering several times a week.

Leaf tips also will turn brown if plants get too much fertilizer, salts from such build up in the soil (look for a white crust around the inner rim of pots), or the humidity is too low. Especially during winter, and in dry homes with forced air heat, a humidifier near spider plants will help to prevent such problems. Feed plants when they are actively growing with the fertilizer of your choice, following label directions. If leaf tips still turn brown, and you’re using a public water supply, fluoride in the water may cause this problem. If you suspect this, try watering with bottled or distilled water.

Spider plants almost never get diseases, and few pests. The main insect pests to watch for are small, hard brown scale insects on leaves. Wipe them and white mealybugs off with cotton swabs dipped in rubbing alcohol. If a plant gets too infested, it may be easier to just discard it and to get a new one, or to propagate clean plants from the offsets.

Grape Ivy, Easy Houseplants

gh1Grape ivy (Cissus rhombifolia) is called this not because they produce grapes, but rather their leaves resemble those of grapes—just much smaller. In fact, they are in the same Vitus or “Vitaceae” family as grapes. They’re not true ivy plants, but get this name from their growth habit. They are among the easiest houseplants to grow, generally being grown in a hanging or raised container to allow the stems to cascade.

Although grape ivy prefers medium to bright light, it will tolerate fairly low light levels indoors. You may see it listed as Venezuelan treebine in reference to where it grows native in tropical and subtropical habitats with filtered light on forest floors. If it gets “leggy” from too little light, just pinch it back to shape. Too much light, such as direct sun, may sunburn leaves, giving them a bleached appearance before turning brown.

Being tropical, grape ivy really prefers warm temperatures above 50 degrees (F), but will tolerate down to 35 degrees. Ideal is a fairly consistent temperature, between 65 and 80 degrees.

Allow grape ivy plants to dry slightly between watering, and don’t let plants stay waterlogged (such as pots with saucers or no drainage). If pots are in saucers to protect furniture and indoor furnishings, make sure to dump out any water an hour or so after watering. Leaves dropping excessively and prematurely often indicates the soil staying too wet.

When plants are putting on new growth (often spring and summer), fertilize them with a product of your choice, according to package directions. Fertilize them more often if you want them to grow faster.

The palm-shaped leaves of the grape ivy are divided into thirds (“3-palmate”), each of these leaflets in a diamond or rhomboid shape (hence the species name). Leaflets are larger, with deeper lobe indentations, in the cultivar ‘Ellen Danica’ which you more often see called merely “oak leaf ivy”.

Leaves can be six inches long, have coarse “teeth” along the leaflet margins, and rust-red hairs on the undersides. Leaves are along vining stems which, if given support such as a trellis, will climb to several feet. Flowers are seldom produced or seen indoors, rather it is grown for its lush, tropical foliage. Studies by Dr. Bill Wolverton, originally with NASA, showed that grape ivy did remove some pollutants from the air, but wasn’t as effective as some other popular houseplant choices.

Grape Ivy is non-toxic to cats and dogs according to the ASPCA plant listing. That’s a good thing, as my cat likes to climb on cabinets to nibble on the ends of the vines from a hanging basket. It is non-toxic to humans, although the sap may cause a slight skin rash in some people.

While grape ivy is commonly found, you may also see a relative—the Kangaroo vine (Cissus antarctica). The main difference is that its leaves are not divided, but rather broadly “ovate” or egg-shaped. It grows similar to grape ivy, with similar culture.

A much more colorful relative is the Rex begonia vine (Cissus discolor). This one, too, has leaves that aren’t divided and are roughly ovate, but with heart-shaped leaf bases and lance-shaped tips. Leaves are deep green, with silver, grey or pink zones similar to a Rex begonia. Yet this is a vine like its relatives, with similar environmental needs and culture. A bit less colorful is Amazon vine (Cissus amazonica) with arrow-shaped leaves, flushed with purple, and silvery veins.

How to Fix Some Areas of Your House

If you have already decided to invest on a property, you probably have one in mind right now. Some people that do not have lots of money in their bank accounts will probably choose a fixer upper. A home that is already broken down or old is called a fixer upper. If you purchase this type of home, perhaps you should hope that it is not yet a complete disaster. A fixer upper is bought for the main reason that purchasing a new home is much more expensive than fixing a broken one. Purchasing a house that has simple complications is not a problem at all since you can easily come up with great solutions for it and then sell it on a higher price to gain some profit. It is even possible for you to gain a lot from it when compared to its actual worth. Nevertheless, that is not an assurance. Therefore, prior to thinking of fixing the home, you need to check what problems it has and if it is really worth buying. Below are the three reasons why a house should not be bought and repaired.

Architectural Problems

Problems related to architecture can make a home dangerous, quite unstable and unsafe. A home similar to that cannot survive a string storm. Or maybe walking upstairs can already produce numerous problems with the property. You can never be sure about this things, however, there are warning signs that you should look out for. In the event that a home has architectural problems, you can probably find some doors sticking together or they do not fit properly at all. When this happens, it is due to the fact that the structure of some homes tends to shift at a certain point. Moreover, you should also be mindful of uneven floors that have already been crunched together.

Plumbing Problems

The second factor that you should consider is plumbing problems. A couple of drips or just a few faucets can be easily repaired. Nonetheless, and any type of serious problems should be tackled with extreme caution. This type of problem though is not going to be easily solved. An expert’s help might be needed to solve serious problems. Plumbers that are not well trained should not be hired to replace an entire plumbing system.

Poor Electrics

There is no need to worry if you find some broken or non-functional bulbs around the home that you are planning to purchase.

Gardening: the Ultimate Design for Your House

In any case, if you know your very own gardening style, be it for cultivating a mini-vegetable garden to having a full-blown greenery setup at your backyard, then that would be good too since you know exactly what kind of garden design would work for you.

In the event that you would want to have fresh and crisp produces made available to you especially during the spring and summer months, you ought to consider making a home vegetable garden if you have a spare area to plant in. In addition, an hour or two spent under the sun and in the close company of nature does provide great benefits that you will not find by staying inside your house or going to malls.

Also, there is that distinctly therapeutic benefit of watching your plants grow into full bloom and achieve the best houseplant there is – knowing that you invested time, money and attention right from it was a seedling until it has become fully grown.

An extraordinary part of doing lawn care is that you do not really have to go all out with your gardening efforts, and use chemicals and exterminator and such, simply because you only have a small patch of land to cultivate anyway. Having edible produce available from your very own backyard garden means that you get to consume such foodstuffs in their freshest and most nourishing state. But gardening is not all about fun and sunshine, it does have its fair share of hard work especially when the ground becomes overrun with weeds, it is primarily your job to uproot and clear them up as fast and as often as they would sprout back up.

For whatever kind of space you may have available in your yard, you can use to set up your very own personal garden – and be ready to shoulder on the work since it does come with its own share of labor too.

One of the primary complaints that would often be heard from gardeners is that, they tend to get severe skin burns due to the long hours spent underneath the heat of the sun – even if they would stop midday where the sun tend to shine at its peak, still even after doing so, getting severely sunburned cannot be avoided. Not only that, gardeners also often suffer from lower back pains too.

Just like with any other type of activity or hobby that you intend to engage in, preparation and research is the key. Being prepared and knowing more about gardening will enable you to not be surprised nor be caught unawares with everything that deals with such an activity, otherwise your best option would then be to hire an professional gardener right from the start.

A Guide to Using Your Front Loading Washing Machine

It’s worth it to give front loading washing machines a try. Not only are these machines more energy efficient than typical top loading washers, they also help conserve water by using less of it to wash clothes. As sales of front loaders increase, more and more people want to know how to use these washers and how their operation differs from top loaders. Here are some important pointers that can make you a good front loading user.

Administering Water

It may be a little jarring at first when you turn on your front loading washer and notice there isn’t much water filling up. You may be tempted to manually adjust the water loading settings, but the truth is you have nothing to worry about. A front load washer uses much less water than a top loader, ranging from twenty to twenty-five gallons, as opposed to the forty gallons a top washer is likely to use. When you first put in your laundry, the washer will fill in a small portion of water typically under the door level. Then, the clothes will start tumbling. Once the clothes absorb the water, the washer will spray additional water to keep up the water level. It’s good to trust a front loading washer’s automatic water selection. Once you’ve put in your clothes, your washer will determine how much water you need.

Using Detergent

Similarly, because front loading washing machines use less water, they also don’t need as much detergent as a top loader. Additionally, you should use detergent that is made for high efficiency washers. Detergent that produces too much foam or bubbles can actually ruin a front loading machine, destroying the electronic system and make the warranty on the machine void. Also, with a lower level of water during rinsing, detergent and bubbles will stick in your clothing. Instead, look for detergent that is labeled with an HE logo and is specified to produce a low amount of suds. If you administer the detergent yourself, employ a single tablespoon of HE detergent and no more. For detergent that is 2x concentrate, pour in two teaspoons. If it’s 3x concentrate, just use a single teaspoon.

Loading Laundry

When you’re putting clothes into your front loader, don’t load them in by the pound. Focus on how much space they take up inside. If you load up too many clothes, the washer won’t clean them correctly. Balance your loads with large and small clothes. A bundle of too many small items won’t tumble properly and could cause imbalance in the washer. Imbalanced laundry loads can make noise and shake the machine, producing unnecessary wear on your machine. And although front loading washing machines agitate clothing more gently than a top loading washer, you still want to inspect your clothes for personal items that don’t belong in your washer, as well as fastening hooks and closing up zippers.

A front load washer is actually easy to use once you’ve got the basics down. It not only helps you get your clothes clean just as well as you would with a top loader, but you’re doing the environment a great service by conserving water and energy.

Keep Your Home Free from Bed Bugs

Our home is where we expend our time to eat, talk with family members, rest, enjoy movies, and many more. Dwelling in a complete and hygienic environment gives excellent ambiance, produces good mood, and specifically offers a good living condition.

A house has all the necessary things needed for living. Design and environment depends on the person living in that house. People are required to clean its surroundings because living a house with such an unorganized place, unpleasant look and smell, and full of trash and dirt could lead them to unhealthy living. Insects might be seen inside the house are cockroaches, bugs, ants, and worm. These insects are existing jointly with us in our house particularly if we have unsafe or unhygienic home environment. Most the insects that are difficult to be viewed by our naked eyes can be regarded as bugs. These bugs are usually tiny, in some cases brown insects that stay in our homes. Particularly, the bed bugs are very difficult to be noticed. Although they cannot fly, they can easily crawl to ceiling, beds, and walls. They typically invade a man or woman who is asleep because a sleeping individual is not constantly moving which they could readily bite. We only see these bugs if they bite us while awake staying in our bed to relax; in this case, our first reaction comes up on killing bed bugs, since we can feel the discomfort while they take a bite.

But there is no need to eliminate bed bugs using our hand because there are bed bugs products that we can obtain from various stores. Such products are commonly odor free and in liquid or in solid types. This liquid type may appear as a spay that could be quickly use underneath the bed, at the back of cabinet and doors, and inside the drawers. The solid form, on the other hand, sometimes comes in a chalk form where it can easily be applied to a part of the house that seldom seen by our own eyes for this bugs are so tiny that we don’t see them easily.

There are also other companies that cater services to households to clear out unwanted pests in your house using chemical liquids to be applied in any parts of your house. These companies are simply advantageous for home owners who are quite busy in their work and applying bed bug products on their own would be impossible.

Top Ways for Protecting Hardwood Floors from Furniture Leg Scratching

After investing in hardwood floors, you expect that the beauty and functionality of the surface will last a while. However, that may not be the case with constant furniture movement that is necessary when changing the arrangement of a room and other reasons. It is necessary to protect your hardwood floor in one of the ways that are highlighted next to retain its aesthetics and function.

It is easy to protect floors that are beneath permanent or semi-permanent furniture by placing construction paper or business cards under the legs of the chairs, tables, or couches. As much as this technique will protect your floor from scratches; it won’t keep the furniture from moving about during use. Some of the other materials that can be used to protect your floor when placed beneath furniture legs include old carpets, leather pieces, tennis balls, old towels, and industrial grade Velcro.

The most damage to hardwood floors originates from furniture that needs to be moved from one point to the other on frequent occasions. In such cases, you need to attach wheels to their legs to aid in their movement while keeping your hardwood floors from getting scratches. Remember to clean the furniture wheels from time to time because they collect debris, which may leave marks on your floor surfaces. It is also important to pick the most appropriate wheels to avoid alternatives that may leave marks on your furniture.

An area rug is an excellent option when protecting hardwood floors from furniture leg scratching because it stands to separate the two. The use of these rugs will extend the protection to your hardwood floors by preventing UV ray damage and stains that may result from drinks that spill accidentally. If properly used, an area rug looks amazing on a hardwood floor.

Furniture leg floor protectors are excellent in carrying out this task because they are specifically designed for such purposes. There are numerous furniture pads that are available when searching for a furniture floor protector for your home. Top materials that are used for such purposes include Teflon, felt, and plastic. A felt pad is ideal for each furniture leg because grit and sand will attach themselves easily to the other materials and cause damage to your floors. Your floor is safe with felt pads because of the softness of the material, which will ensure that no damage will result.

Floor protectors for furniture legs are affordable options because they are cheaper than replacing or repairing your costly hardwood floor. It is imperative that you check your furniture floor protector frequently so as to ensure that it is still working as intended. Also, keep your floors clean at all times since a furniture pad will not be of any use if the surface is filled with grit and sand.
