Orpington Garden Sheds
Save The Planet In Orpington
In theory if you wanted an insulated garden shed then it is possible to use these type of construction but in reality its not really practical. The walls of the garden shed would be so thick that you would a lose a load of your garden and the houses of today tend to have only small gardens so a small tool shed is often the only type of building you can get in it.
Other uses for car tyres, which naturally are very durable, water repellent and sturdy, are ideal for all sorts of garden furniture and you can find a large range of environmentally friendly garden furniture at your local Orpington garden centre or online. This ranges from plant pots, garden tables and stools – made by Kitsch-u-like as well as rubber mulch for the garden from companies such as Ecoscape. These rubber grains can help to replenish the garden lawn by aerating the soil and reinforcing the grass, particularly where the grass has been eroded away.
Also garden paving slabs can be made from this recycled rubber as these tend to be lighter than concrete or stone and easier to handle. Anything dropped onto these slabs are also less likely to break meaning these are ideal as garden paths or around children’s play area in the garden.
sheds in Orpington The sale of goods made from recycled materials is a great way to be an eco-warrior in your own garden as currently over 400,000 waste tyres are available annually. These products are a great way to do ‘your bit’ as well as being a little cheaper than comparable garden products and can enhance your garden as well.
Do you think we recycle enough in this country? Do you resent being made to recycle by your local council? And do you think people should be penalised if all garden waste is not recycled? Would you consider a garden shed made from old tyres? What do you use your garden shed for?
Mulching for the Orpington Garden
Another item which is really good for the garden is well rotted manure, which can be quite stinky and not that pleasant. This can be bought from your local farm or from garden centres. As the manure rots it provides your plants with vital nutrients. I would advise using strong rubber gloves when handling to ensure that the smell does not follow you around. Bark is another good mulch and one of my favourites. It is available in different grades with some being ornamental in appearance and some in more minute sizes which rots a lot quicker.
However, it is important that the stems of small trees and bushes are not covered as this action can make them susceptible to disease and rot. The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) recommends for the best results to only use biodegradable materials such as straw, compost etc and ideally should be about 3 inches thick and should be laid over the ground whilst it is still moist. This will hold in the moisture to benefit your plants. You can buy straw and store it in your garden sheds in Orpington so that it is available as and when required.
There are different opinions as to when your should do the mulching and late winter and early spring tends to be the best time, although literally any time of the year will help for different reasons. There is universal agreement that mulching is good for the garden and that if you have the opportunity then you should make the most of it.
