Raised beds - a very useful and attractive decorative features of the garden. They raise the plants up to eye level for best effect. They also make gardening easier for people with disabilities, reducing the need for bending and squatting. They can be filled with different soils, to create the right environment for plants that cannot be grown elsewhere in the garden. Embossed flower beds adorn the empty space of the garden, the type of patio you can fit seats or benches to such flowerbeds or to connect them with a raised reservoir of the same material.
Materials for construction of the raised beds vary and affect the style of the finished flower beds. Raised beds can be constructed of wood, logs, bricks, railroad ties or stone, you can buy already formed flowerbeds or to collect them, your choice of material is limited only by your imagination. The material you choose should support the weight of soil and plants and be safe. Make sure that the size, material and color of the flower bed matches the theme of your garden. Beds made from the same material as the curb, can combine the garden, so you could choose the brick to match the brick fence or wood, painted in the same color as your fence. On the other hand, contrasting flower beds and borders add zest to the garden. For example, you could make a bed out of old red bricks on the dark blue background of the fence. Narrow or wide, large or small, raised flower beds is a useful addition to the garden and can be used as a dividing wall by themselves.
Where you place the raised bed? It depends on a number of factors. First, decide what your reasons for constructing raised beds? If they are designed for easier access to the plants, then, obviously, the area around them should facilitate access to the flowerbeds. If they are built in order to limit the area within the garden, then you should plan where they will be, their sizes, any gaps between them and so on.
The next and very important decision that you want to grow in raised beds. Alpine and rock plants like a Sunny areas with little shade, cacti like the sun, and most ferns require constant shadow. Whatever it was, raised flower beds will need good drainage, so the location directly on the concrete or clay is not the best idea, if you don't provide them with good drainage.
If you build embossed the flower bed with bricks or stone, you should provide a sound basis to support the walls. Strip foundations consist of a trench filled with a layer of compacted solid layer of broken stones or bricks) and fresh concrete on top. The basis of the need to build wider than the wall of the beds to the wall weight spread at an angle from the base of the Foundation and the subsoil. To determine the correct width of the foundations for this wall, you must multiply the width of the stone. The depth of the Foundation depends on the height and the thickness of the wall and soil type, but in General it should be half the width and deeper to extend beyond the ends of the wall half the width of the stone. For example, the wall of the six rows of bricks in height would require a trench about 40 cm depth.
1. Install boards, downed nails in each end of the trench to mark the trench width.
2. Attach the lines of the thread to the marker width, linking both boards at the end of each trench and secure.
3. Sprinkle a small amount of sand along the threads to mark the width of the base, then remove the thread.
4. Dig a trench of the desired depth, making sure the base is flat and the sides vertical.
5. Plug the guidelines so that they reached out to the level of the concrete base. Check the neighbourhood level.
6. Fill the trench with water, then add the condensed solid layer and well tamp it in soft ground with a sledgehammer.
7. Pour the concrete and mix it’ with a shovel. This will remove the bubbles, which could weaken the Foundation.
8. Seal the concrete extruding the straight length of the Board and leveling it to level benchmarks.
For decorative lighting, you can use led lights that will perfectly adorn and complement your garden.
