All about Paving Stones and Flowers

You can create a new twist on your grandma’s garden design. You can do this by creating a nostalgic garden from scratch in your own backyard. Native plants are usually defined as those plants that were growing naturally in an area and it include all types of landscape plants, trees shrubs, vines, ferns, flowers and grasses. You can find all these plants and more at your local nursery or garden centre.

Plant a range of flowers like petunias, oriental lilies, eucalyptus near a paving stone pathway or under a window so you can take full advantage of the soothing smell drifting on the breeze. The most practical way for gardeners to create a nostalgic garden is to keep your garden as natural as possible with more traditional plants. With a heritage of common styles and era ornaments your garden will have a retro feel. One idea is to plant geometric flower beds with cobblestones in between them. Other ideas would be to plant colourful flowers in an old fashion styled bicycle, or place a sundial in the middle of the garden to create a nostalgic ambience.

Consider using trees and shrubs that have beautiful leaves and winter interest such as colourful berries and funky evergreens. Place paving tiles around big trees for an area where you can place a bench. That will definitely remind you of your childhood days playing hide and seek with other siblings. Birds and pollinators will be part of the environment too.

You can also plant some vegetables in your garden. A vegetable patch is becoming popular again with the cost of living increasing. In the olden days, vegetable patches were common and our great grandparents enjoyed using fresh vegetables from their own gardens.

Many gardeners and homeowners have realized that they don’t want gardens of the future with strange plants. They want grandma’s garden, created with love and that is native in appearance. Ask your local nursery for the best trees and shrubs that are available in your area and appropriate for the conditions at your home. Expand your palette by including plants that are colourful, fragrant, significant and, most of all, fun.

Info of Tree Trimming

• Safety harness-this is an important piece of equipment that a tree trimmer needs for their job. This piece of equipment ensures the tree climbers safety if they should fall. The most common type of safety harness is called the climbing saddle. It has nylon straps that securely fit about their thighs and waist along with an anchor in which to attach a rope with a carabineer. A carabineer is a coupling link with a safety closure.
• Climbing rope-this is used to help the trimmer too safely and efficiently climb the tree. The rope attaches to the carabineer on the safety harness, which holds the trimmer in the tree. This lessens the risk of injury should the tree trimmer fall. The climbing rope needs to be of good quality.
• Chainsaw-this machine comes in different sizes to accommodate large and small jobs. A small chainsaw has a fourteen or sixteen-inch guide bar and weighs around eight pounds. This size is good for doing trim work and removing limbs. The larger chainsaw can weigh up to ten pounds and have a guide bar of eighteen to sixty inches. These are necessary for tree removals and large limbs.
• Pole saws-The seare small chainsaws on an extension pole and can increase the reach of a tree trimmer up to an additional twelve feet. They are available in electric and gas motors. They are usually lightweight so a tree trimmer can use them for an extended period of time without causing excessive strain on your arm.
• Chipper-this machine s used to chip brush and branches into bark size pieces for easier disposal or for resale. A chipper comes in two styles for industrial or personal use. The personal size chipper is compact, small and can be towed behind a regular truck for doing small jobs. For industrial size jobs, the tree trimmer should have a chip truck. With this type of chipper the brush can be chipped directly, back in the truck. This will allow for easier clean and transport.

Chain Link Fencing

This type of fence is one of the most cost-effective options in the market and is easily installed by the home owner with basic do-it-yourself skills. Alternatively, the professional can be hired to complete the installation that has the potential to give many years of reliable service.

Minimal maintenance
