Mulch is any material that is spread or laid over the surface of the soil as a covering. It is used to retain moisture in the soil, suppress weeds, keep the soil cool, and make the garden bed look more attractive. Organic mulches also help improve the soil's fertility
Natural backyard waterfalls are one of the most beautiful things you can admire. The way the water falls on rocks and the beautiful sound it makes could keep you hypnotized for hours. Imagine how wonderful it could be to have such a gorgeous thing on your property. Obviously having a natural waterfall in your backyard is not something you can count on when buying an estate. But you can make your own waterfall and the advantage for that is that you get to place it wherever you want and to design it how you want.
Landscaping with rocks means you can add texture through a wide variety of shapes, sizes, types and colors. Stones can also double as a garden bed edge, keeping soil in place and minimizing erosion.
Keeping ornamental plants in or around the home and in the workplace increases memory retention and concentration. The calming influence of natural environments is conducive to positive work environments by increasing a person’s ability to concentrate on the task at hand. Work performed under the natural influence of ornamental plants is normally of higher quality and completed with a much higher accuracy rate than work done in environments devoid of nature. Going outside or being under the influence of plants can increase memory retention up to twenty percent, a recent University of Michigan study showed (Sewach). The effect of nature in the home and in the workplace serves to stimulate both the senses and the mind, improving mental cognition and performance. Not to mention we just love looking at them!
Irrigation is the artificial application of water to land for the purpose of agricultural production. Effective irrigation will influence the entire growth process from seedbed preparation, germination, root growth, nutrient utilisation, plant growth and regrowth, yield and quality.
The key to maximising irrigation efforts is uniformity. The producer has a lot of control over how much water to supply and when to apply it but the irrigation system determines uniformity. Deciding which irrigation systems is best for your operation requires a knowledge of equipment, system design, plant species, growth stage, root structure, soil composition, and land formation. Irrigation systems should encourage plant growth while minimising salt imbalances, leaf burns, soil erosion, and water loss. Losses of water will occur due to evaporation, wind drift, run-off and water (and nutrients) sinking deep below the root zone.
