  12. 12. Garden irrigationThe right place for garden irrigationHow to Water Your Gardenby HOSTMEI R on DECEMBER 10, 2011www.lowes.com 5 Tips for Watering Your Garden: 1. Choose drought tolerant plants tosave time and water. Look for the WaterWise label in Lowe’s stores to find plants thatrequire less watering. 2. Choose the right tools for the job. A watering can is good for afew small plants. For more extensive watering, a watering line allows you to gently waterin planters and gardens. A watering line also allows you to turn off the water easily toconserve water. Third, you can use a sprinkler system with a timer to cut back on yourwatering. You can also connect a drip irrigation sprinkler nozzle system to your hose thatdistributes water directly to the roots. Similar to the drip system is a soaker hose. Thehose sweats out water at the ground level, hydrating the roots. 3. Adding peat moss orcompost to your soil to retain moisture. 4. Mulch your entire garden to help stopevaporation. 5. Collect your own water by installing a rain barrel under your gutter ornear your eaves.

I’m working in a Tourist Information Center.My main job is to give all kind of information related to the city. I love this job and I try tohelp as much as I can the visitor.‖ And this is what he said about Horta Labyrinth Park:―The garden is arranged with a graceful Italian touch on three levels, or staggeredterraces. On the upper terrace there is a pond that collects the water to irrigate thegarden; small domed temples held up by Tuscan columns are found on the middleterrace, and on the lower terrace is the small labyrinth, formed by hedges of trimmedcypresses, which gives the park its name. In fact, this is the most original part of thearea.‖

We take a hose out and set it up toa drip hose but one area floods and we’re testing ways to drain it and put this in otherparts of the garden but proving almost to no avail.What I would like is a suspended sprinkler system. Some thing that will hook up easily tothe hose, water the garden evenly and not waste water. I have a design in mind for theframe work. That I have no problem with. Thinking of using a very basic green houseframe. Also, our land lord ran over our last hose and I was thinking that if there was away I could put a barrel out to catch rain, I could use that instead to water the garden.Not even sure if that’s possible but it’s an idea.I’m just wondering really about how to set up hosing along the frame work for thesprinkler system. And if anyone knows about how to use a rain water storage unit topower it with low to no need for wires, hoses, or anything that’s going to run from thehouse, that would be great too.Best answer:

  17. 17. Question by Marc: Soil Test Kit for Contaminates – Home Garden?I am looking to fix a relatively cheap soil test kit windmill, most likely one that you sendout to a lab for results, which will tell me if my soil is safe to plant a vegetable garden in. Ihave found a bunch of different soil test kits, i.e. PH, moisture, etc. but none forcontaminates. Thank you for all of your help in advance !Best answer:Answer by fluffernutI can only speak from experience which is slightly old now that I’m retired…….The testsfor contaminants is contaminate specific, that is you must specify what contaminant youare looking for and then the appropriate test is made…….at a very high cost……$ 150 apop back then. We could not do a broad screen contaminate test…..we had to have an ideafirst.I’d suggest you have a typical soil test done by a Laboratory and include micro nutrientssuch as iron, etc. Contact your Cooperative Extension agent in your county to learn aboutthe soil test process, how to properly gather the soil and how to package and of course,how much $ to include. The agent can also help decide if the soil might have beencontaminated.A simple test for herbicides is to gather some soil into two pots. In one grow lawn grass orcorn and in the other grow beans. Certain herbicides work on either a monocot or dicottype plant. For example if you can’t grow the bean but can grow the corn you know thesoil has residual herbicide for dicots.Add your own answer in the comments!{ Comments on this entry are closed }Italian GardenDECEMBER 8, 2011Italian Garden Image by Marc-John Photographic The gardens at Hever Castle were laid out between1904-1908 by Joseph Cheal & Sons, transforming former marshland into a landscape of formal gardensincluding a 38 acre lake fronting the terrace in the Italian Garden offering a stunning vista of the lakeand surrounding countryside.
