Green hedge: how to make a fencing “of nothing“ and for nothing?

you bought the seasonal dacha, a site under building, just a piece of the earth for picnics. And the first question which should be solved - protection of property. Protection not only houses and other constructions on a site, but also the site - fruit-trees and bushes, beds, even just the earth on which can throw out garbage from the next sites, put cars (and if well “nayezdit“ the platform, then it is possible to say goodbye to dream of a flower bed on this place, or it is necessary to put many forces).

The first line of protection of property - a fencing. The set of various modifications of fencings, various materials for their production is now offered. Reliable, beautiful, durable. One trouble - the majority of them are dear. For example, for a construction of a brick fence around rather modest site under construction of a cottage in 10 hundred parts it is necessary to lay out about $14-15 thousand. Cast fencings are even more expensive. It is possible to put, of course, the budgetary wooden fencing, but very much it is short-lived, and demands leaving very much.

Besides not always at the initial stage of construction getting hungry or an opportunity to spend money for a fencing construction. Building can demand additional and contingencies.

In order that all - somehow to designate borders of a site and to provide protection of property, it is possible to establish a temporary fencing, and to make it independently practically of improvised materials. Free of charge. Having put only own forces and patience. Such fencing, temporary for a cottage, can be a constant for the seasonal dacha.

The simplest option of a fencing that is called a fencing from honest people, - the rope tense around a site. It, of course, does not protect from anything, but designates borders. For honest neighbors of it it is enough not to recognize your fruit-trees and bushes as public property. If neighbors are not too scrupulous, or have short-sightedness and do not see similar “fencing“, it is necessary to work a little. Otherwise your crop will be reaped by anyone, only not you. By the way, construction of the house as the declaration of your serious intentions as land user, does not rescue from attacks on beds and a garden, but even the most unreliable, shaky and low fencing gives excellent effect.

The most budgetary option of a fencing - a wattled fence, a wattle fence. Its construction will require walk to the next lake for production of an osier-bed (or what in the people is called hmyznyaky) - flexible branches. Rod posts for a fencing can be got in the next lesochk. Optimum for this purpose to use trees of coniferous breeds. Well the fir-tree approaches - this wood is a little subject to rotting, especially after the corresponding processing.

Processing is simple - columns can be painted, and parts which will be in the earth, to tar. Still vertical support which are desirable for processing even before installation too will be required (to paint or varnish). As rod posts it is possible to use metal pipes.

When the basis is established, it is possible to start directly weaving - flexible branches intertwine between support. If there is a desire to varnish the turned-out “macrame“, then it is better to wait until the wattle fence completely dries (it is necessary to spin, while branches crude and flexible). The varnished wattle fence looks even stylishly, especially in combination with a log house and the corresponding registration of a site (wooden benches, garden sculptures). But if to apply a varnish on a crude tree, then the stylish look will remain for a while.

To save rod posts from an atmospheric precipitation, it is possible to use simple and absolutely free a navershiya - halves from plastic bottles. At the same time it is better to use that half where a neck - the form more promotes free running off of water while the figured bottom of a bottle water detains.

If for a full-fledged wattle fence there is not enough time or ability, then it is possible to build the simplified option, “grid“ from a rod. Support in this case are required to be put more often than in case of a wattle fence, and rods in addition to fix to support a wire that there was no spread of “grid“.

That such fencing did not look shaky and poor, it can be decorated with the trudging plants (pletisty roses, an ivy, hop, grapes well approach) or pots with flowers.

Simpler option of a fencing - a paling. The stakes hammered into the earth form a reliable fence, however, of not especially presentable look. But it besides can always be decorated by means of the trudging plants. The only minus - it is not so simple to get stakes as a rod. Besides, with them it is necessary to work to increase fencing life term - to paint, process an anti-septic tank and so on.

Green hedges are very popular as “gratuitous“ and reliable fencings. The next Liski willingly will deliver you very young fir-trees.

Live fencings from pletisty roses, a dogrose are good. The sea-buckthorn is not only an excellent plant for a construction (cultivation) of a fence - at a sea-buckthorn magnificent long needles, but also “supplier“ of useful products (curative properties of sea-buckthorn oil and juice are widely known).

But if you decided to grow up a fencing, then you remember: it is necessary to look after a green hedge, otherwise it will take very slovenly form. It is necessary to get rid of the dried-up, dead branches, to cut plants, giving fences the form (especially it belongs to a sea-buckthorn, without hairstyle you receive fine trees, but as a fencing they will be useless).

Also it is necessary to consider that the green hedge not only gives a shadow, but also eats. So to arrange beds or beds directly near a fencing it will not turn out - plants will get very grown poor soil.

One more nuance of a green hedge - you have to represent how it will look in various seasons. If your house is intended for seasonal accommodation (for example, summer giving), then you can plant those plants which will look most advantageously in the summer. If it is a cottage for year-round accommodation, then it is necessary to approach creation of a green hedge with special attention - hardly you will be pleased in the winter sad gray bushes. In this case evergreen plants will be an optimal variant.

The fencing is “face “ of your site, those “clothes“ on which meet. And even from the simplest materials, absolutely free of charge, having applied only own forces and having enclosed time, it is possible to create the real work of art. There would be a desire.
