Each garden is inherent in their, especially appearance. Filed under: Commons Speaker . Meanwhile, the tiny front gardens in cities and large estates in rural areas share one thing in common: almost anywhere under the garden and the garden is not occupied the whole area, ie, the owners have to resort to one or another method covering the soil surface between the flower beds, borders, alpine slides, greenhouse, pond, etc. As a rule, this time using a number of techniques, but most common of them – turf. Turf – is the area of soil, seeded form a dense turf grasses. Surface of the lawn grass regularly shorn that it is flat, such a surface is capable of withstand a certain load, when it go. Certain types of lawns are more resistant to trampling, so that they can arrange for children's playgrounds, others are less stable. There are lawns that look like velvet, some grow up tough grasses, weeds and moss, the surface of their bumpy, but, nonetheless, and they both should be considered grassy lawns. For most people in Britain, a garden without a lawn – not a garden, and large estates sometimes represent a huge lawn.
In the garden under a medium-sized lawn divert about half the area, and the rest of the land cultivated flowers and shrubs, build greenhouses and divide the vegetable garden. Lawn grass – not a universal groundcover, so in all places, on which a lot of walk – on paths, entrance to the garage and in some other place, preferably a hard coating: stone slabs, bricks, gravel, concrete etc. It goes without saying that the grains are not suitable for covering vacant plots of soil between plants, and in such cases have resorted to using ground cover plants. So, there are three kinds of materials that are in the garden means sizes are usually used to cover the surface of the soil: this lawn grass, hard cover, for example, slabs or gravel, and ground cover plants. In different gardens, these materials are used in varying degrees. In a small garden most of the area allocated for hard coat, and rationally organized the garden in between woody plants can grow more ground cover plants that inhibit the growth of weeds and reduce the need for watering in dry weather. Besides these three main ground cover materials, in some cases also used four kinds of materials. The most important of these additional ways to cover the soil surface – wild prairie grass that is mowed regularly, from time to time. The so-called wild meadow or prairie grass, arrange on large sites, all the grass which is regularly cut or even impossible not reasonable. Wild meadow can be placed in a small area, as well as its more refined counterpart – Mauritanian grass, which in recent years is catching on. The remaining two types of coatings – synthetic surface that mimics lawn, and a coating of creeping plants, like chamomile or thyme Field – a little practical and applied very rarely.
