Triangular-Shaped Gardens

Triangular-Shaped Gardens

Triangular-Shaped Gardens – Triangular plots are not as unusual as you might think. They are often found where the original building site met a road or a river. This shape can seem limiting and the apex seems to draw the eye uncomfortably, especially if the garden is new and bleak, surrounded by bare fences that exaggerate the awkward shape.

You can use tallish trees and shrubs to conceal the awkward-looking pointed section. A small grove of trees or a group of shrubs at the apex will create a feeling of height and space and conceal the narrowness at the end of the garden.

Garden Fences And Fence Styles

Garden Fences And Fence Styles

Garden Fences And Fence Styles – Garden fences provide various degrees of privacy and architectural interest, but they may also cut off light and breezes. Select a fence style that will satisfy your needs: a louvre or trellis will let in breezes; a panel or vertical-board fence will offer privacy. Or combine two styles: for example, a solid one below with an open style above.

Vertical-board garden fences and screens are popular and easy to construct. By nailing boards to both sides of the rails, you will allow breezes in, but maintain privacy.

Primula – Irreplaceable Spring Plant

Primula – Irreplaceable Spring Plant

Primula is a large and complex genus, which includes the well-known primroses, contains about 400 species of perennials, some suitable for mixed plantings, others for bedding, while a few are happiest in a rock garden.

The plants that are described here do well in cool, damp atmospheres and moisture-retentive, preferably neutral soil. All have characteristic rosettes of spoon-shaped leaves from which the flowering stems arise. Another characteristic (but not of all) is ‘farina‘, a flour-like bloom on the stems and leaves that can provoke an allergic reaction.
