Building A Ramp In Your Garden

Building A Ramp In Your Garden

Building A Ramp In Your Garden – Ramps make a gentle transition from one level to another, smoothing the path for everything from wheelbarrows to, most especially, wheelchairs. Where the slope is not great, a ramp is a practical alternative to steps, allowing easier access for people with limited mobility. If you have a family member or friend who relies on a wheelchair, you will need a ramp to approach at least one of your home’s entrances and possibly to reach the garden.

You can use a variety of materials for a ramp, including concrete, wood or even earth topped with fine gravel. Do, however, make sure that the surface is non-skid. Textured rubber toppings, such as skid-resistant polymer, and textured concrete work well.

Brick Patios Design

Brick Patios Design

Brick Patios Design – Many homeowners make use of part of the available outdoor space by paving bricks to create a brick patio. The space so created can be used for recreational activities and entertaining friends and family. Many consider it worthwhile to get the patio laid by specialized contractors, but some DIY enthusiasts claim that anyone with little exposure to masonry and patience can create a lovely brick patio having professional looks.

You can give your brick patio any shape of your choice, but care should be taken to take correct measurements to ensure buying the right quantity of bricks of the desired shape and size. The ground should be leveled and given the correct incline to make sure that excess rain water doesn’t get collected.

Bog Gardens

Bog Gardens

Bog Gardens – A carefully sited bog garden will substantially improve the look of waterside plantings around pond and pool edges, and will also extend the range of beautiful plants that can be grown. Remember only that these plants may thrive and seed excessively, so the same watchful eye must be kept on them as on the marginal plants.

Concrete and preformed ponds, being impermeable to water and usually sited in a sunny position, generally have very dry soil to the side of them, making them unsuitable for waterside plantings. Ponds made with flexible liners, and natural streams, both lend themselves to the creation of an adjoining area specifically intended to hold moist soil.
