But for the successful implementation of ideas and the creation of beautiful artistic image have to use every centimeter of land. Practice shows that experienced gardeners lush and ornate flower beds can equip not only outdoors, but also to use for these purposes and the tree trunks of trees.


Principles of everything around-trunk beds

It is rare to find a holiday or vacationarea in which we would not grow fruit trees. But these plants with spreading crowns and well-branched root systems occupy a lot of space on the site.

The elegant flower garden in the backyard

Flowerbeds and vegetable composition is better to break under the mature trees. Because immature young seedlings in the garden are more vulnerable

Young seedlings need careful maintenance. Their tree trunks must be left open, since they are necessary for the application of fertilizers and irrigation. The notion that the roots of the trees are growing, leaving the ground straight down wrongly. Some of them are located in the upper layers of soil, buried by only 40-50 cm. This point should be taken into account when choosing a place for a bed, so that the roots of neighboring plants do not hurt each other in the struggle for life-giving water and nutrients.

For example: birch, walnut and horse chestnut have a powerful shallow root system. Any plants in the tree trunks of these trees are uncomfortable. But the apple, hawthorn and rowan have a tap root system. They are happy to let their crown under the ferns, ornamental grasses and flowers, allowing you to turn the bare tree trunks in the picturesque flower beds.

If every time a shovel rests on an extensive network of roots, for a bed is better to look elsewhere. The variant of entrenchment roots, in which "interfere" pushing branches aside, creating a small "pockets" under the landing of flowers. If the arrangement of flower beds without partial pruning of the roots of the tree can not do, then when the work should be guided by the principle that we can "chop off" no more than 10 percent of the root system. After cutting the roots have to be shortened and the crown of the tree, reducing by the same amount.
