Protecting Your Backyard Garden From Weeds And Pests For the purpose of applying poison powders, the backyard gardener may consider purchasing a powder gun. Though if you have to be restricted to a single tool, it will probably be better to acquire one of your hand-powered, compressed-air sprayers.
Lights, Lights and More Lights! Outdoor lighting can create the right ambiance for your outdoor backyard living area. Electric or solar lamps made especially for lighting walkways, garden beds or even outdoor fireplaces can make all the difference to the final appearance of your backyard design.
3) A water feature is an essential part of a backyard landscaping. It is just as functional as it is beautiful. Water features can be many things such as fountains, ponds, pools, birdbaths, etc.. Depending on the size of water feature you choose, it can greatly regulate your backyard temperature. On a hot day sitting near a fountain can reduce the temperature to a more tolerated level. The sound of water is soothing and welcoming. It will make your time outdoors much more enjoyable.
Protecting your plants from freezing is a benefit that will enable you to plant sooner rather than later. You can use either glass or protective cloth extensively in getting an extra early and safe start with cucumbers, melons as well as zucchini and eggplant.
2) Incorporate movable landscaping into your backyard. By this I mean potted plants, sculptures, fountains, etc. that can be moved. Using what I call movable landscaping, you can quickly and easily change the layout of your backyard. Just as you change the furniture arrangement of your living room, this gives you the ability to inexpensively give yourself a brand new backyard. You can even create partitions that easily separate the different areas of the yard. Potted plants are a must have because they create that lived in feel. They can be brought inside during the winter and make your home more lively during those cold winter months.
Simpler and easier devices for safeguarding newly-set fruits and vegetables, like tomatoes or cabbage, from the cut-worm, are stiff, tin, cardboard or tar paper collars, which are made several inches high and wide enough to be placed around the base and tall enough to be buried an inch or so in to the ground.
