Lawn coatings – the most used element of the decoration of the local area. The coating can be created personally or purchased in a specialized store.

Self-planted lawn (sowing) will be the basis for landscape design of the entire area of ​​the site. It can be provided for the location of fruit trees, shrubs, flower beds, embossed paths tracks.

The lawn with short-haired homogeneous vegetation is called English. It needs to plant cereals that will grow well on the same place not one ten years. Considering the Russian climate, it is worth choosing a mixture, including oxysty of different varieties. In order that the lawn acquired a tight cover and a flat structure, It will take several years.

Lawns can perform not only decorative, but also a sports function. For example, if they are used as a coating for a football field or tennis court. A good solution will be the location of the lawn in the game zone for children and installation of the playground.

  1. partner;
  2. Garden-park;
  3. meadow.

Among these positions, the parter lawn is the most difficult in the design and most capricious. Such a plot of single-ship grass is formed: Matlika, wildlife, oatmeal. When forming a parter lawn, it is necessary to take into account that its area cannot exceed the size of the object located on it.

Garden-park options look less effectively, but they do not require special care and are able to withstand heavy loads. To create such a lawn, it is better to choose rags, blowing, comb and oatmeal, mixed in equal proportions.

Meadow lawns are very beautiful and unpretentious. Before swaying, the site must be switched, remove weeds (dandelions, plantains). Then to fall as a mixture of railing, oatmeal and fruit, taken as the basis by adding Espartce and Clover.

The choice of plants that the flower garden settles, remains for the owner. It can be the flowers of one type or different flow:

  • Alpinariums are very popular among the flower bed. They include not only flowers, but also a decor of stones. This type of flower garden will look good near the reservoir.
  • In the foreground of the garden zone placed ornamental flower beds. Their variety – Arabesca consists not only of plants (mostly shorter), but also such natural materials like sand, stone, small pebbles. In the center of the composition you can install a sculpture or a small fountain.

  • Live framing for flower clums is called border. It consists of plants whose buds cannot be called volumetric. The main function of the border is fully covered with the soil.
  • A variety of border can be considered Rabata. Most often it is placed parallel to garden paths or around the recreation area. Forms a slatter of high or low colors. There are also mixed design options.

  • Landscape – includes a waterfall, flat place, gorge. For naturalness, it is better to have such a slide near the reservoir. This type of mountainaria requires detailed development and significant material costs.

  • Stony – the most budget version. Externally, this mountaineering looks like a small hill with stones located in random order.
  • Rocky – appropriate if there is a steep hill at the local area. In such a mountaineering, the focus is on large boulders, not vegetation.

  • Mountain – the most difficult to create a view of an alpine slide. Blinds should go to the ground by 30 centimeters (for naturalness), and a group landing from dwarf plants is needed on the stony surface.
  • The terraced slope is something similar to the sights with the ruins of an ancient castle. Such a mountaineering can be created on a plot with a steep slope. Terraces – different in height, form and length.

  • Alpine Lawn – the most popular view of the mountaineering. When creating this type of slides, wild plants are used: edelweiss, stealing willow.
