We recommend planting various plants in the resting place. Mistakes made in the process of landscaping a narrow space are much more noticeable than in a wider area of other parts of the garden. First of all, determine the place of planting trees and large shrubs, giving life-giving shade. In a few years, the seedlings should shade the resting corner, and it is necessary to know exactly the form of growth, crown formation of individual tree crops, the time of their shoot formation, flowering and all other properties in order to choose the most suitable plant.
Shadow formation manifests itself in different ways: on the southern side, the shadow is very insignificant, on the north - the strongest, on the west it is formed in the first half of the day, and on the east - in the second. The taller and more spread out the tree, the wider its shadow. Small trees are therefore planted closer to the resting place, and large trees a little further. It is especially pleasant to relax directly under the foliage of the wide-spread tree branches. Therefore, sometimes the best place to plant a large tree is on the very territory of the recreation area. In any case, it makes sense to keep one big tree on it. Low bushes or dwarf tree crops can be planted around the latter.
The rest area will be decorated with flowering or coniferous tree crops, those that need space to flourish. They are planted in several pieces along the edge of the resting place. They don't have to be exotic plants. And here preference is given to crops that are distinguished by a long flowering period, early crown formation, a peculiar shape of fruits and brightly colored foliage in autumn, that is, beautiful at any time of the year. Suitable plants can be selected from tree crop descriptions for hedges, deciduous and evergreen ornamental shrubs.
Climbing plants seem to be created in order to revive the resting place. They can grow up walls or hangers, some species can cling to irregularities on a not very smooth wall surface and do not require much space, and therefore are especially convenient for resting corners in small gardens and narrow yards, especially since there are varieties that adapt equally well to both sunny and shady conditions. In order to create a dense covering of poles, walls, hangers, etc., you need to know how they find their fulcrum. According to this property, they are divided into 4 groups:
- Sprawling climbing plants (for example, the well-known wicker roses) hold firmly with the help of their shoots and thorns for support, while they often need help to fix the shoots.
- Plants with special curly organs - antennae, with which they tenaciously grab onto not very thick poles, wire or lattice. This group includes clematis, grapes and wild grapes.
- Root climbing plants that form interlocking roots at the shoots, with which they are fixed to tree trunks, etc. The most famous among them is ivy.
- Vines or bindweed that spiral around the support.
They require vertically mounted poles, poles or wire nets, along which they quickly rise in height. A very beautiful and lushly growing representative of this group is buckwheat.
Among climbing there are shrubs, perennial and annual flowers - annuals, for example, fire beans or bells. Almost all of these plants love coolness, that is, they root more easily in the soil protected by the shade. The hangers for them are therefore placed on the north side. If you want to green the south wall, they can be placed right on the corner of the wall on the east or west side of the house, and then the shoots go around the corner. Previously planted tree crops shade the planting site of climbing plants. Climbing tree crops are best planted in the fall or early spring. Most often, their seedlings are grown in pots. When planting, the root pads should be sufficiently moist, and for this, the seedlings, along with the pots, are lowered for a moment in a bucket of water so that it is saturated with moisture. Landing holes for them are dug of medium depth, but wide enough for the roots,organic fertilizers are applied there, since most of the climbing ones by their origin are among forest plants, the roots of which grow widely in loose humus soil.
Climbing tree crops are also pruned. Shoots are shortened by about half, their tips still almost always dry out after planting. Contrary to the existing rule, the seedlings are always planted deeper than they were in the pot, and somewhat obliquely. After watering, the planting sites are covered with compost from deciduous, coniferous or other similar materials.
