ADVICE

DESIGN

To maintain a healthy vegetable garden, use the companion plant approach by inserting certain varieties of insect repelling plants next to vegetation that is prone to these unwelcomed guests. For instance, use French marigold and chrysanthemum to protect your tomatoes and beans from certain parasites. Also, chives, mint, onions, geranium and basil will keep several insects away when sowed in your garden.

A mixture of compost, black earth and peat moss is an excellent blend that can be used for various garden applications such as vegetable gardens, flower beds, etc. It will also help enrich the existing soils. Additionally, the use of a soluble fertilizer will provide trace elements which are essential to vegetable growth when the summer begins.

You must also take into account the amount of sunlight exposure. Edible plants generally need to develop under the sun. As for flowers, you can always find varieties that will adapt to partially shaded areas.

This outdoor, country inspired concept is situated alongside the river bank. To maintain superior water quality and to prevent soil erosion, a specific type of vegetation was selected to adapt and re-naturalize the river bank. Indeed, the foliage of these plants contributes to the existence of shaded areas and keeps the water fresh. Their roots can slow down the deposition of sediments carried by the river as well as soil erosion which can, in turn, affect water quality. Plants such as rudbeckias, chrysanthemums and grasses were utilized in these areas to evoke fond memories of the countryside. Materials which replicate natural stone were used to adorn the ground.
