When there is a big stump on the site, then in most cases they try to emerge, without seeing other use of the remains of the once beautiful tree. But if you approach the solution of the problem creatively, it is possible to find many ways to avoid far from the simplest work and find a new use of sleep and often a powerful root system.
Selection of material
Flowerbed from Stump is the first thing that can come to mind the owner of the site. A large flower garden in this case will not work, as it is rarely possible to meet on the tree-gignefish section, after the death of which the huge stump remains. Most often, novice designers have to deal with medium sized hemp. But in this case, quite interesting compositions can be obtained if you additionally use small logs, lined in the ground. You can also use residues from cut large branches.
Flower bed is very beautiful, the boundary of which is made of birch logs. They must have a small, roughly the same size. They are bought into the ground around the stump at a certain distance. In this case, sleep is the center of a flower bed, and the gap between it and the frequency is filled with bright colors.
A good decoration for a garden may turn out of ordinary corporate. The only thing you have to take care of the owner of the site – the preservation of the tree, which is inevitably rotated, is damaged by bugs.
How to treat stump?
If we proceed correctly, then the wooden part of the flower beds will continue for many years. Do it yourself it is possible to make a deepening in the old tree, fill the earth and plant flowers. This is the easiest solution to the problem.
It may seem that the hole is not so simple, but anyone would be able to handle such work, would be the necessary tools in the farm. From the old tree you can come up with a lot of decorations for the site.
First of all, it should be carefully examined by a stump and determine its condition. If it is badly damaged, then all efforts to improve it can become in vain, and the remains of the rhizomes themselves will be a serious source of problems for other plants on the site. Use on decorative purposes only well-preserved stumps that have no explicit traces of destruction. If the process of rotting began, it is almost impossible to stop it.
Best for the flower garden fit stumps with the preserved bark, which will protect the tree from the sun and excess moisture. The exception is the Black Cora, which itself is damaged and will only interfere. In addition, the pests are usually accumulated under it, which destroy the tree. There are breeds of trees, the stumps are not suitable for the creation of a flower bed. We are talking about popoles, cherry and nuts.
When starting work at a distance of 5-7 cm from the edge, a smooth circle should be held. She denotes the borders of the future pot. Stumps must be kept part of the Collus – intact layer. Without this stump quickly collapses. If the stump has small sizes, it is enough to leave the intact part with a thickness of 20 mm if the dimensions of the cut from 60 to 80 cm, then 50 mm will be required.
The most simple ways to create a deepening.
- Make the cuts, and then with the help of the chisels, remove excess wood.
- Dilm in the center of the circumference of a small bonfire and burn a hole.
- Drill a hole and fall asleep English salt or salter. As a result, for several weeks, due to the coming chemical processes in the tree, the required deepening.
- Cut hole possible with hoe. Everything that remains to do is give it the necessary form.
The depth of the wells largely depends on the size of the stump, but it should be at least 10-20 cm. Earth volumes made to this peculiar pot will also affect the choice of plant assortment.
On this, the list of necessary measures to bring the stump to the color suitable for the cultivation does not end. It is necessary to create a drainage system so that water inside the stump is styled, contributing to its rotting. In the remnants of the tree at an angle of 45 degrees in relation to the Earth, holes drill with a diameter of 1.5 cm. At the bottom of the deepening layer of rubble or small pebbles.
It is also important to treat wood with rubbers and bioseptics. They will slow down the process of rotting and will not allow young shoots to let. Also, experienced gardeners who have extensive experience in performing this type of work are strongly advised to avoid serious problems in the future, open the stump and cut it off from the rhizoma. In this way, the connection of the stump with the soil is disturbed, finally killed him.
Next follows the simplest and pleasant part of the work. Earth falls asleep, and plants are planted.
It is possible to arrange a flowerbed in a variety of styles, including the remains of stumps with the help of plants. Flower garden can be decorated both annual and perennial culture. To turn into something special little stumps is quite difficult, but here it is possible to beat the use of bright colors that immediately attract attention. If the surface of the cut is too dark, it is bleached with “White”. Then, to give wood glitter, highlight and protect against rotting, it is covered with a layer of varnish.
Soil preparation and plant landing
To create suitable conditions that fully ensure the growth and development of colors, 2 parts of the soil are taken and 1 part of the compost. The mixture is well mixed and only after that falls asleep in the remains of the stump.
Planting colors should be held in the center, so that the plant has a space for further growth.
It is advisable to land in such a flower not seeds, but already have enough grown and strengthened sprouts. For this, the selected copies are usually grown in the greenhouse and only then place in a new flower garden.
When leaving the flower, it should be remembered that it needs frequent watering, since more intensive evaporation is driving from its surface. Two polishes in very hot days will be enough. It is also necessary to remember that before the roots are consolidated to sufficiently, the flower beds have two enemy – precipitation and wind. So that the soil does not blurt out and was not washed away, it is sprinkled with a thin layer of chips.
What flowers can be planted?
When falling down colors in the recess of the stump, it should be borne in mind that they will grow above the soil surface by about 30-40 cm. An ideal option will be a falling out of flowers with a falling crown. In this case, the flower garden will look more voltage. For such an option, you should choose:
Growing from hemp in the country of colors is not such a painstaking lesson how it may seem. Care for plants is required as well as those growing in ordinary pots.
If the residues of the stump are not highly towering over the soil, it is possible to place in it only those of them that have a rigorously developed root system. In some cases, for the prevention of rotting, the recess in the stump is painted. The presence of paint does not have the most beneficial effect on plants, so cultures should be quite enduring. These can be succulents or stamping.
