Decking Project Tullamore Part 1: The Problems

This Article will be slightly different from others as this time I was on site to gain experience and knowledge so I can pass on the right information to you so let’s begin.

The Problems?

Drainage

Upon visiting the site straight away you could see drainage was a problem as the garden was  not level, causing the water to sit at the front of the garden under the decking and at the side of the house. As you can imagine the stagnant water had caused the decking to be susceptible to rot by constantly being submerged in water the sub-structure had started to get weaker due to wet-rot which had started growing significantly on the struts.

Beginners guide to Gardening.

 How to start a Garden!

how to start a garden

 

Spring is a good time to begin growing and digging, although planning can take place before the snow melts. Gardeners spend most of the summer watering, weeding, and watching young plants grow. Fall is a good time to plant trees, shrubs, bulbs, and some perennials.

  1. Get an idea. Is this going to be a vegetable garden? An herb garden? A flower garden? If you choose to grow flowers, do you want annuals, which you must replant each year but which give colour most of the summer? Or do you prefer perennials, which have a shorter bloom time but come back year after year? You can mix any of the above — after all, it’s your garden. Just one bit of advice: Start small. It’s better to succeed just a little, than to fail grandly.
  2. Pick a place. Almost all vegetables and most flowers need about six hours of full sun each day. Spend a day in your chosen spot and watch how the sun moves across the space. It might receive more sun than you think. But don’t despair if your lot is largely sunless; many plants tolerate shade. Check plant tags or ask the staff at your local garden centre to find out how much sun a plant requires.
