Beauty Of Brick Paving

Beauty Of Brick Paving

Brick paving is a wonderful material, with a character all of its own. In the past only a limited range of bricks were durable enough for paving, but today there is a welcome revival in the use of brick, and special clay ‘paviors’ are now available the same size as bricks, which are suitable not only for terraces but also for drives and other heavy wear areas outside.

Brick can also be used as a team-mate to a second surface material, either natural or man-made, when it will help to soften and add intimacy to an otherwise potentially bleak area, or give definition to a lawn or border.

Sustainable Landscape Design

Sustainable Landscape Design

Sustainable Landscape Design – Adding sustainable landscape design to your home is a great way to add curb appeal and increase your own use and enjoyment of your yard space. A major myth of xeriscaping or sustainable gardening is that local plants are dull and plain, but there are many vibrantly colored native plants and flowers that fit into the sustainable and natural category. Most major plant supply stores and big chains will have a local section, making it easy to select plants that you know will do well in your front or back yard, and any landscape designer will create a custom garden of beautiful local foliage that work well together. Plus, by replacing some of that unnatural lawn with native plants you won’t have to deal with the unsightly brown grass that’s indicative of winter dormancy, which encourages additional curb appeal all year round.

Enjoy Indoor Fish Pond During Winter Months

Enjoy Indoor Fish Pond During Winter Months

Indoor Fish Pond – If you’ve never seen an indoor fish pond or are of the mind that the only place for a fishpond is outdoors, it’s time to readjust your thinking. Many people love the idea of having a goldfish or Koi pond in their lawn and garden area but find the reality isn’t always as wonderful as the fantasy.

Every winter runs the risk of losing the plant and fish life in your pond with the first freeze. As a result, more and more people are coming up with a method for bringing the outdoors, in and forming your very own pond indoors is a beautiful alternative to a tired old aquarium. While an indoor pond doesn’t have to be beautiful in order to be functional, you can choose to make it a focal point and conversation piece quite easily.
