But the highlight flower on a background of lush vegetation of the site and highlight its beauty is impossible without a decent frame. Decorative pots for the garden with his own hands can not only transform the land, but also to give a complete view of flower beds.
A distinctive feature of the traditional plant potspots for plants is the lack of capacity in the bottom drainage holes necessary to drain excess water. In addition to decorative functions properly chosen container is able to facilitate the care of the green pet.
Since the main purpose of the decorative pots for the garden is the interior decoration, the outer surface of containers in most cases make out a beautiful and attractive
Depending on the material manufacturing pots for the garden are of the following types:
- Plastic. One of the cheapest options for pots, the main advantage of which is light weight and easy to care for.
- Wooden. Natural base capacitance allows you to protect the roots of plants from hypothermia and drying, as well as to maintain optimal conditions for growth.
- Metal. Modern material, characterized by durability, is perfectly suited for outdoor landscaping.
- Clay. A material having a rough or smooth surface - a universal basis for tie-dye colors and decorations with stucco. But the ability to pass moisture limits the scope of its application.
- Ceramic. Natural material treated with a special coating, is widely used both in interiors and for garden design.
The main requirements that apply to the pots for garden decoration - the ability to keep the form specified by the master and the high resistance to increased soil moisture and temperature extremes.
If we take the basis of the location of an impromptu flower bed, then there are interior design and hanging planters for the garden
Outdoor pots can be made from almost anything. The case could go to the old stuff, carefully stored "just in case", furniture, dishes ...
Unusual hanging pots can be made of old pots that accommodate enough along the stairs, hanging on the wire
In the hands of a creative master a second life can even find an old suitcase without a handle, which, as in the saying - and hard to bear, and throw a pity
Wooden box penetrated by stain and decorated with a cute fairy calf, will be a worthy setting for the flower garden
Fill the bag easily, setting right into ita few pots with plants. If the height of the containers is considerably lower walls of the suitcase at the bottom of the pots you can pour a sea pebbles and stones, and the gap between the containers - fill with moss or shredded bark.
For the production of the original vessels capableblend in with the landscape design and perform his spectacular decoration, you can use the most varied material: burlap and rope, the remains of plastic film and plastic bottles, plaster and polymer clay ... Any of these materials in the capable hands of a master is able to become a vibrant element of garden decor.
For the production of original planters, which will last more than one year, you need to prepare:
- asbestos or polymer plaster;
- a flexible wire frame for resettlement;
- Construction bandages or strips of 10 cm width fabric;
- Paints & Stains on latex basis;
- acrylic paint for exterior use.
Planters can be any shape: everything depends on the chosen basis for the framework. In our case, as a provisional basis will be the plastic bucket volume of 10 liters, which will be removed on completion of work.
Bucket set on a flat surface,turning upside down. For the manufacture of the carcass surface bucket is braided wire, which neatly folded the edges and hide. The resulting frame to remove the bucket. Now you can start breeding plaster texture which in finished form should resemble a thick cream. In a container with a plaster solution omit the strips of cloth or bandage, soaking them for 2-3 minutes. Our goal: to impose a wire frame on the outer and inner walls. Strips of cloth, well soaked in a solution, layer by layer spread on a frame up until it reaches the wall thickness of 1.5-2 cm. The remaining solution was thoroughly coat with the wall planters. Construct leave to dry for 12 hours.
After complete hardening of the basics, you can begin to design pots, decorating it with all sorts of stones, colored glass and beads
To do this, first we align the surface,stripping it with sandpaper. Then cover the bottom and walls of white water-based paint products, on top of that we put a second layer of the desired pattern for the application or ornament.
Old car tire - excellent material forproduction of decorative elements. Rubber is resistant to external shocks and adverse weather conditions, thus able to properly serve for more than one season.
Hard to believe that such a colorful parrot, it is important to swinging roofed house or between the branches of trees can do in just one day with their own hands
For the manufacture of suspended pots need:
- tire without metal;
- drill and drill bit diameter 10;
- a sharp knife;
- M8 washers, bolts and nuts;
- paint for exterior use.
To facilitate the work when cutting parts, the knife blade can be periodically soaked in liquid soap or detergent.
Along the board on both sides of the wheel tires perform symmetrical cutouts 2/3. In the larger side notched tires through triangular notches separate the lateral part
As a result, should get a model that later gently turn inside out, giving the desired shape
The body of a parrot ready: still draw the bird's head and give it a recognizable shape. To do this from scrap tires cut out the beak.
Carved parrot beak inserted into a longitudinal incision is made with a sharp knife around the edge of the smaller side of the body
To securely fix the beak, the two halvescompress using strubitsy, drilled therethrough through hole, through which they then contractible with the bolt. You can adjust the shape of birds already in place, following a few cuts with a knife.
From the long side of the workpiece and to the intended chalk contour cut out the tail of exotic birds
Parrot is ready: still pull side of the article with a rope or wire, and then paint it in bright colors.
For require branches 0.7-1.5 cm thickand a thin cord or twine. If possible, it is better to give preference to the branches of a birch, viburnum and bamboo - they look most interesting. Sticks better to choose the same thickness.
For the manufacture of pots, branches with a knife orsecateurs cut approximately the same length, which should be 1-2 cm above the pots. Sticks-blank lay side by side on a flat surface and is braided twine so that a mat, the length of which should be enough to wrap around the pot.
Thin branches of trees remaining after pruningGarden can be used as decorative elements. They can serve as a basis for making beautiful pots, which is perfect for the design of both the site and the interior of the house
To create the design of larger size is better to use bamboo or bars of circular or square cross section assembled in the form of a cube
Easy option when twigs glued to the base-burlap. Plexus mat wrap the outer walls of the pot and fasten the decoration with the help of colorful satin ribbons or the same string.
