Andover Garden Sheds
Up the Wall Andover Gardens and Sheds
I suppose having a smaller garden does make it easier to keep in order as it tends to be only a small garden lawn with maybe a small border of flowers or maybe a few shrubs however even in this situation you do need a shed to store the lawnmower in. A possibility is to share a shed with a neighbour for these sort of things as it not likely to be over used. Many people cover their little garden with paving slabs or timber decking which is more practical but I think it worth the effort to have a little greenery in the garden.
One of the latest ideas to come about is the use of vertical gardens by using the side of the property as a garden, Seems a little far fetched and I would assume this does not include a lawn as it would be very difficult to cut.
Patrick Blanc, a garden designer, has turn the idea of a Andover city garden with a wall garden on its head with his green fingered creations which has be known to climb as high as 80ft. Blanc, who had studied the rain forests and the botanical environment of them, is fascinated by plants which grow without soil, and he has patented his own special way for attaching plants to vertical walls using layers of felt. This means that it’s possible for most people to have their own gardens even when there is not sufficient land for a conventional one.
The Athenaeurn Hotel, in London, and the CaixaForum gallery in Madrid in home to some of these amazing gardens and the garden in Madrid covers a total area of 550 square yards (note YARDS not metres). Blanc, among his many other awards won the prestigious silver medal at the Architecture Academy in 2005.
The traditional vertical garden features the timber arbor and these have been popular for many decades however I think it’s unlikely that Blancs gardens will be appearing in Andover domestic gardens any time soon but it does give gardeners a little room for thought. However, the lack of space for a garden shed might make it a little tricky in maintaining one of these gardens.
Use Your Garden Shed to Grow Vegatables
Seed potatoes are something else which can start in the shed using some old egg cartons, cardboard ones are best. You need to put the broad end of the potato upwards in the egg carton so that the ‘eyes’ are pointing upwards. Ensure that these are placed in the best place in the garden shed so they obtain the most amount of light. As with the tomatoes you need to keep them moist so that they can flourish. When the potatoes tubers have shoots about 1 – 1½ cm long you can them move them from the garden shed to your garden for main planting.
This advice to utilise your garden shed and get a head start is great advice because leaving it much longer will mean worse crops than what you would hope to expect. The pre-warming of the soil in the early Spring in Andover enables new season crops to germinate earlier than normal. You will find that hardy vegetables such as beetroot and carrots will germinate when the soil temperature is about 46 degrees. If the shed is shading the area then this will enable the area to be able get to that temperature earlier than normal.
With sweet corn and beans it needs to be a little warmer, at about 54 degrees, and by covering the ground in the garden with plastic sheeting 6 weeks before sowing you will find that this can increase the temperature accordingly. The plastic sheet will add warmth during the day and help to reduce heat loss at night. Sandy free-draining soil is best for warming early so if you have heavy soil then maybe raise the garden beds for better results.
Clear plastic is best for this purpose however the addition of a layer of black polythene under the clear polythene will give the best results. Where ever possible try to utilise the area shaded by the garden potting shed as this will give the best results. About this time of year it’s also a good idea to make any repairs to your garden shed or garden fence and to rectify the damage which may have occurred to these over the winter. A general tidy up is also a good idea so you can see your garden in a new light, in fact a good spring clean is always good advice during Spring.
