The Process and Plants of Garden Decorations
The set of plants one chooses to put can work wonders or ruin the garden decorations. One needs to take extreme care when it comes to handling the delicate aesthetics of a garden. The first thing one has to know is what to do to make a garden a haven of beauty. The best time to plant ornamental plants in the garden is when the soil has warmed up. The best way to know whether soil is conducive for planting is by squeezing a sizeable lump in the hand. If it feels cold to the hand, it is definitely too cold for any good. Further, if it holds its shape then it is too wet for planting. The next thing one should do is make sure that the soil has been loosened up by use of a fork or trowel until it is smooth. Once the soil is smooth, it is amended in a new bed with compost. The soil is now ready for the introduction of a plant.
When choosing ornamental plants for garden decorations, one should be keen to avoid the dried, overgrown or tangled ones. Once planted, the plants should be watered daily and in a frequent pattern to avoid the eventuality of drying them. In case the plant was availed in a pot, the sides of it should be tapped to loosen the soil and remove the plant, taking care not to bend or break roots. The depth of the hole in which the plants are to be put depends on the plants themselves. Those that require high moisture contents are planted deeper. Once the plant has been put in the hole, loose soil is added around the roots. This is done while taking care to ensure the soil is compressed lightly around the roots of the plant. Mulching is added taking care to ensure that there is enough room left for water retention around the roots. As a round up, the choice of garden decorations ultimately boils down to taste and preference.
