The late fall is the best time to take cuttings from your dormant deciduous trees and plants. Why? Since these trees tend to go dormant during the winter, it becomes less damaging to take cuttings from them. The best part is, cuttings are a cost-effective way to increase the number of plants in your garden. You can use them to propagate a number of new trees, crops, and flowers, including forsythia, figs, mulberries, pomegranates, grapes, kiwis, roses, and clematis. Whether you’re propagating cuttings to create a garden oasis on your own property or doing so for neighbors, friends, and family, it's important to know how to take cuttings from your trees and plants.
Cover crops often improve the fertility of the soil they're planted in, because they return essential nutrients to it. Planting them annually will definitely reduce the amount of natural amendments, compost, and manure you have to add to your soil. Note that the type of cover crop you choose to cultivate can also determine which nutrients are put into the ground. For example, planting a legume cover crop will add some nitrogen back into the dirt.
When spring rolls around, you can expect some of your cover crops to come back, so be sure to mow them down or harvest them before they start to flower. You can harvest them by cutting them and using the cuttings as mulch or adding them to your compost heap. Pulling your cover crops will also allow you to plant your garden right away.
The building blocks of a natural pool start with the design and must include an aeration system, phytofiltration, and some tiny cleaners in the form of snails, bottom feeders and fish. An aeration system brings oxygen into the water and can be done with a pump or with a waterfall. In a native pond that has occurred naturally, there is inflow from a stream or other source and outflow to a basin, lake or irrigation ditch. This creates a constant supply of fresh oxygenated water. A situated pond doesn't have these benefits and requires a source to bring the oxygen in for plant and animal health. Without proper aeration the pool will become stagnant, a breeding ground for mosquitoes and any life inside will not maintain health.
