Hi all, I am interested in building a pool in my yard. Along with a pool I need to set a landscape and some plants that suits the area. The initial step is to
get a pool and landscape design
I think gunite pools are more appealing to a landscape. I found different varieties of pool models. It is difficult to choose a model from a variety of pool model. A popular choice is a gunite swimming pool because it is highly durable and it can be created in just about any shape. Gunite pools use a rebar framework that is sprayed over with a concrete and sand mixture. So I have decided to go with a gunite pool. I am not sure about my decision. If I get any other better services, I will surely change my decision.
My kids love to swim. We have a play day deluxe family pool, but it has some damages and is no longer in use. They are forcing me to build a swimming pool for them. I am looking for a better pool and landscape design so that I can get a pool and landscape combination. Can you suggest some shapes for the gunite pool? I have heard that there are endless options for a gunite pool? Which is a better option- smooth curves or sharp angles?
Being a first-time veggie gardener, I do have some questions, hoping someone can help me with replies. I am planning to visit a nearby plant nursery ( stwilliamsnursery.com/#sthash.yJKWA01f.dpbs ) to collect some native seeds that suit our climate here in Ontario. I am little confused with the space for gardening. Is it possible to grow vegetables in containers or in bottles, for those who do not have any place other than their terrace or open tops? I read articles regarding its possibility. There is a small veggie collection in my open tops. But pests eat around the edges of my plants which makes me disappointed to grow more veggies.
I suspect the birds. They had already decimated two of my 4 lettuce seedlings of which I stretched cotton thread across the top of them to scare them off. Before planting new plants, I should know the remedies against pests. Also, I would like to know which set of plant suits for a beginner in gardening. Any bit of help is appreciated.
Keep track of what you've done in your garden or add plant notes.
