Tip number 1. Sometimes, a legacy of the garden with a history of us get it tracks. Dismantle the foundations of old buildings and remove concrete waste – a costly exercise. Easier on the foundation of an old house to organize the rocky slide. Its boundaries should extend beyond the concrete and have a smooth curved contours, conceal the ground. Stylize a hill under a rocky terrain with plenty of stones and undemanding plant, planted in the crevices – Bellflower, phlox subulate, Arabis, and Sedum.
From the bush of suitable plants with tenacious roots, for example – the mountain pine, creeping willows, Derain Canadian. Tip number 2. Old school – is a well-established ecosystem for decades. Rude and tactless interference can cause a violation of a fragile balance. Construction of new fence on the foundation can lead to waterlogging of the site. Device drainage will help change the habitual conditions of life plenty of trees. Not many plants will respond to it with gratitude.
Tip number 3. The old turf can try to turn the lawn without the tedious digging and capital recovery. Double treatment with herbicide selective action "Lontrel-300" will help get rid of broadleaf perennial weeds (dandelion, dock, plantain). Annuals (quinoa, chamomile) disappear, one has only to begin regularly mow the grass. For reseeding bald spots make good use of white clover and annual lawn grasses (ryegrass and annual bluegrass). If the grass sparse, it will not do without sowing of perennial grasses over the entire area at the rate of 1-2 kg of grass mixtures on weave. Make it better, two weeks after treatment with herbicide. In autumn it is desirable to aerate (piercing forks of land) throughout the area and the bank filling peat or sand. Layer 1-2 cm thick enough to noble lawn grasses feel comfortable.
