Mixborder is a complex flower garden, where plants are planted in several tiers.
To get a nice mixboarder, you must follow certain rules when drafting it.
The construction of mixborders begins with the layoutFlower bed. It does not take long, but it will clearly show which plants are best planted on this or that tier. Plants in this flower garden should be repeated. In addition, the mixboard must be made in such a way that it is blooming throughout the season. Therefore, it is important to choose plants according to the flowering period.
Having prepared the project, you can goDirectly to creating a mixborder. First of all, you need to draw a line through which it will pass. It's easy to do with a rope or garden hose. And you can do otherwise: pour river sand into a plastic bottle and carefully pour it out with a thin trickle, drawing a line along which the border of the flower garden will pass.
Then you can start preparing the soil. It is necessary to excavate the excavation along the intended line with a depth of at least 50 cm. But its bottom is laid with a drainage layer 10 cm thick. As a drainage, use expanded clay, gravel or broken brick. Peat, turf, sand and compost are poured over this layer, mixing all these components. Having prepared a place for planting in this way, it is necessary to wait some time for the soil to settle. In a few days you can plant flowers, herbs and bushes.
When planting plants in mixborders, you need to know some rules by which they are selected. Each line corresponds to plants of a certain height.
- 1st tier: plants with a height of 25-30 cm,
- 2 nd level: plants with a height of 40-60 cm,
- 3rd tier: plants with a height of 60-100 cm,
- 4th tier: plants taller than 100 cm.
Create a beautiful mixboard on the garden plot is easy, if you follow these rules.
