Due to the heavy rain and storm that’s attacked various parts of Britain, many people are left with waterlogged gardens, and this can really cause issues with your soil.
Water can kill, and it can prevent any oxygen from reaching the roots in soil, which will obviously prevent root growth, and leave your garden completely and utterly destroyed. There is not a great deal you can do when the water has made its way onto your garden, but we need have a few pieces of advice.
- Firstly never walk on it. Why? Because it can damage the soil further, and worsen compaction.
- Potted plants should be taken out and replanted; otherwise they’re essentially going to be left to die.
- All dead or dying roots shoot be remove in a garden, and then you can pave the way for new ones.
- Drainage is always important with soil, and some lime-free sand can ensure a lot of the water is absorbed and drained.
For a number of jobs which may arise in your garden, from bordering a garden plot, to making a pathway, building a fence, or deck construction, using railway sleepers is a great choice for these for a number of reasons. Railway sleepers are typically bought in bulk, for pretty cheep prices. Resizing them is also simply done with a saw, so you can fit them to the purpose that you decide is ideal. In case you didn’t know what railway sleepers were already, I should probably tell you that they are the bit of wood which bridges the gap between the two separate railway lines. Wood is used in this instance because it is more flexible, and is subject to less decay than most metals. It is also cheaper, which is why, as a layman, using them is a great way to intuitively construct whatever you want to. treating wood is also very easy to do, both to weather proof, and to paint it to your ascetic style.
