    Gravel flower beds
    Usually the space between the flowers in large flower beds is filled with green grass. Only care it requires no less than the flowers themselves: and watering, and weeding, and haircut. For me, it's easier to replace grass with gravel mulch.
    At the arrangement of gravel beds, a layer of turf is first removed. Then the cleared area is lined with a thick film. It is necessary that the gravel is not pressed into the soil and does not mix with it. In addition, the film prevents the growth of weeds. In the right places on the film, make incisions crosswise. In them, then dig out the wells for the seedlings. And when planting the plants, mash the layer of gravel 7-10 on the film.
    On such a flowerbed I grow in my house mainly drought-resistant plants: cleansers, carnations, lavender, sunflower, etc. I pour every bush from the watering can, which is quite laborious. So I spend a couple of times a month.

    Garden flower garden
    My plot is standard 6 acres. It is difficult to plan such a territory beautifully, taking into account the hangers of buildings and the rules for correlating landings and buildings with neighboring borders. More or less nice options are obtained only from those who donate the garden. But I wanted beauty and at least a small harvest - and I found a solution!
    The beds on my plot are made in the form of flower beds! They either stretch along the paths, or frame the buildings, or are scattered in the middle of the lawn. Most often, the distant from the viewer line is occupied by tall flowers or climbing plants. In the latter case, it can be beans, peas, cucumbers.
    The second line of flowerbeds is vegetables. At the same time, I mix the edible cabbage with ornamental cabbage, and in rows of vegetables I plant an unpretentious flower every meter,
    Lendulu or Marigolds. They add a decorative effect and protect vegetables from some pests. The first line closest to the viewer is undersized flowers or leafy greens: parsley, sorrel, spinach.
    Even the potato grows on the flowerbeds. His bushes in bloom are very elegant, and once he was considered an ornamental plant. Under it, I move round flower beds on the lawn. In the middle I plant a tall sunflower, then two circles of potatoes and a border of marigold or cineraria. It is easy to take care of such plantings, and after harvesting the potatoes the border continues to please up to the very frosts.
    As a result, under the vegetables, the land is occupied no less than that of its neighbors, the crops rejoice, and my vegetable garden looks beautiful!

    I grow multi-colored squash - and yellow, and white, and green, and even variegated. To have enough vegetables for our entire large family, I grow them in accordance with all the rules. I plant squash after siderates, as well as onions, carrots or cabbage. In the fall of 1 square. m of such beds, the husband makes 6-8 kg of manure or compost and 50 g of superphosphate, then digs the soil.
    This seed in the spring, when the freezing frost stops. I lower the seed by 2 to a depth of 4 cm in one well through 60 cm, cover the bed with agrotex. When the seedlings grow up a bit, I take it off and leave the strongest one in each hole in 1. But under the non-woven fabric, the patissons grow better. Therefore, it is advisable to leave it, and in the flowering period, open the plants only for a day, for pollination. Since that time, I begin to feed the squash by stirring 10 l of water in 1 l of manure. Sometimes in 10 l of water add 40 g superphosphate, 30 g urea, 25 g of potassium sulfate (or 200 g of ash) and use this solution. Additional fertilizing alternate and spend them every 2-3 weeks.
    I pour in warm weather with warm water and under the root, so as not to provoke decay.
