A backyard swimming pool is not too different in this regard, as those who actually do not have one often crave at least a small pool that allows them to cool off on a hot summer day. Adding a petite pool to your small backyard need not be a challenging and complex affair, and the result will often leave you amazed, as you will discover a brand new hangout just a few steps away from your living room! With concepts such as ‘staycation’ becoming even more popular in recent times, the small pool has definitely made its way into more urban backyards. All you need is a hint of ingenuity, smart planning and just enough space to squeeze in a small pool. From health and fitness to rest and recreation, you will soon find that this tiny wonder will change your entire life. Clean and Contemporary Since most modern homes adopt a simple, clean design with straight lines and cubic forms ruling the interior, the landscape around your house should be no different. Let the small pool seem like an extension of the home and shape a lovely deck that acts as a transitional zone between the edifice and the pool. Even though you might not be swimming away in a giant lap pool, the classic rectangular design still gives you the satisfaction of having a beautiful pool in the backyard, even if it is far smaller in dimensions. The rectangular, in-ground pool is a classic that never fails, and you can start with one that is as small as 9 by 18 feet. Fall in Love with Curves! Not a conformist at heart? Not to worry, as there are plenty of other options that go beyond the classic rectangle. Circular pools, those with semi-circular designs and ones in irregular shapes with cool twists and turns are becoming more popular with each day. Instead of offering a sterile, modern vibe, these pools (when combined with natural stone and the right canopy) can mimic the dreamy ambiance of a tropical retreat right in your backyard! The exotic design along with some amazing lighting will also help you look past the fact that the pool is relatively small in size. Much like in the world of fashion, curves are definitely sexy in the world of small pools! Think Depth! I can already hear some of our readers asking us how to fit a pool in a backyard that is even smaller than those showcased in the inspirations above. Well, we have got two words for you all – plunge pool. Plunge pools require very little square footage and rely more on depth than on width and length. Smart modern designers and contractors have come up with several ways that you can easily add a plunge pool to the backyard without worrying about compromising on deck area. While some might prefer a Jacuzzi instead of a dipping pool, we strongly suggest you opt for the latter. They are easy to maintain, aid in improving your health and of course, allow you to relax in style. Holiday at Home Do not just think about the small pool while planning your backyard. Work out how it fits into your overall lifestyle, how much deck space you really need for all those summer and fall parties, and how the style of the pool reflects that of the home itself. Even a petite pool does not stand in isolation, so think about a matching deck area, maybe an outdoor dining space or barbecue area for some great family evenings, and even a pool house if you can afford the luxury. A small pool will definitely transform the backyard into a far more happening spot.

A landscape project can range in cost from a few hundred dollars to many thousands. Regardless of your budget, it will pay you to spend some time thinking about ways you can make the best use of your landscaping dollar. The tips below may save you money, or they may let you spend more on the landscaping features that will bring you the most pleasure. 1. Formulate a plan. A well-thought-out design and a plan of action save money and time and reduce stress. 2. Get bids. If you work with contractors, get at least two itemized bids for each project and compare them. Ask for a written guarantee of the work. Set start and finish dates. 3. Don't skimp on the quality of materials or contractors. Flimsy construction will cost more in time and money to correct mistakes or replace materials. 4. Salvage as much as possible in an existing landscape. Before you dig up plants or tear down structures, first think of ways to preserve them. Even a crumbling concrete sidewalk can see new life as a stepping-stone path or garden edging. 5. Move existing trees and shrubs, if necessary, to protect them during construction or to allow them to thrive in a better location. 6. Prepare and improve the soil by working in lots of organic matter, such as compost, rotted manure, and chopped leaves. This is one of the wisest 7. landscaping investments possible. 8. Do some of the work yourself, not only to save on the cost of installation but to invest personal pride in the project. Hire teenagers to help you shovel gravel or lay sod -- to save your back and your pocketbook. 9. Buy the largest trees that your budget allows. They require the most years of any plant to mature but add the most value to the landscape. 10. Weigh the advantages of sod, grass seed, and groundcover. Sod provides an instant lawn but at a premium price compared to grass seed. 11. Grass seed requires at least six months to become established, but it germinates and grows easily; it's one of the best ways to save money.Increasingly popular lawn alternatives, such as low-growing wildflowers or groundcovers cost more than turfgrass up front with little maintenance expense. Gravel is another affordable, carefree alternative. 12. Ask an expert for help at any stage in the planning or installation. 13. If you're running water or power lines to a new area of the garden, install more water spigots and electrical outlets where they may come in handy. 14. Get expert advice from your county extension service or a garden center when selecting the best plants for your garden. Learn what they will need to survive and thrive. Native plants, already adapted to the climate, generally need less water and attention. 15. Avoid impulse buying. Keep a copy of your garden plan handy and take it along to the garden centers. Make sure plant purchases fit the plan. 16. Consider more than just cost when selecting materials. Free wood chips may seem like a good deal for a path, but concrete won't wash away in a hard rain, and it looks tidy for years with little care. In addition to quality and maintenance factors, compare energy savings, comfort, safety, and other aesthetic qualities. 17. If space is tight, choose features that do double duty, such as benches that open for storing cushions or play equipment or an arbor that supports a swing. 18. Rent or borrow expensive tools that you won't use much, such as a rototiller, power washer, or paint sprayer. Go together with several neighbors to purchase a pricey tool that you can all share, such as a chipper/shredder, snowblower, or chain saw. 19. Use your landscape to save on grocery bills. Grow the fruits, vegetables, and herbs that your family enjoys most.

During this time of year, especially this year with its mild temperatures, many thoughts turn to garden. Now is the time to start planning what your garden will be for the coming growing season. You are probably receiving all types of gardening and seed catalogs in the meal and your visions are full of all the gardening possibilities. This year, maybe think more about container gardening. Container gardening gives you some advantages over regular gardening: 1. Contains warm sooner than the ground soil, so you are able to plant some crops sooner. 2. You can place containers where you like them in the garden. 3. Containers are easier to water and maintain than regular garden bed. There are many things that can be used as a container for gardening: wheelbarrows, old buckets, and old cooking pots, anything that will hold soil can potentially be used to garden with. One of my favorite items to use in gardening is used tires – either car or tractor tires. They can be used for all types of gardening, or as compost heaps. Place them in the garden, fill with good garden soil and presto, you have an instant garden. This year I found the pictured flower garden and I have plans to make this for my coming gardens. It is basically several car tires painted different colors and stacked in varying order. When the tires are in the shape you want them, fill with garden soil and plant. Instant beauty and an easy way to have color all through the growing season.

Ornamental grasses usually aren’t the centerpiece of landscaping plans, but their amazing textures and expressive personalities are big contributors to curb appeal. Ornamental grasses are easy to care for, drought-tolerant, and come in a variety of shapes and sizes — from fluffy border edgings to towering privacy screens growing Sudan grass — a hybrid of sorghum — reaches up to 8 feet tall in a single season. It’s an annual, meaning it needs to be replanted every year, but that’ll give you the chance to experiment with it in different locations. Use it as a garden centerpiece, a living privacy screen, or a jungle hideaway for your kids. Exclamation Point Ornamental grasses in containers are a good way to add pizzaz to a deck or patio. A dramatic, showy ornamental, such as this festival grass (Cordyline), makes a strong architectural statement. Container plants need extra watering or they’ll dry out in hot weather. Backyard Meadow Why mow the lawn when you can let it grow into a backyard meadow? A spiky sotol (Dasylirion) and billowy Mexican feather grasses (Nassella tenuissima) line gravel paths and create an easy-care yard you won’t have to cut. But check with your local municipality and HOA before you plant — there may be ordinances that restrict grass height to reduce the risk of fire during dry seasons. Showing Off A good mixer for perennial flower beds, pink muhly grass (Muhlenbergia capillaris) forms feathery reddish plumes that add a splash of color to your landscaping. Keep tall grasses in place over winter so they’ll provide texture and shape even when they’re dormant. Cut down to about 3-4 inches in spring to jump-start new growth. Tread on Me Dwarf mondo grass (Ophiopogon japonicus) grows only 6 inches high, making it ideal for defining the edges of walkways and driveways. Mondo grass spreads slowly, but you can speed the process by dividing clumps with a spade in early spring. Be forewarned: Creating a lush checkerboard pattern like this takes time and dedication. All-Time Favorite If you could only choose one ornamental grass, fountain grass (Pennisetum) should be at the top of your list. With its graceful, arching stems and long, flowing plumes, fountain grasses are 4-foot-tall mounds of pure curb appeal. There are many varieties; check your local nursery for what’s best in your area. Planting Like Pollock Artistically bent? Got a green thumb? Combine your talents with a sedge design — a free-form creation that’ll turn your back yard into a living sculpture. Sedges (Carex) are hearty, finely textured grasses that you can use as borders, in rock gardens, in containers, and as a lawn replacement. Many are native to Western states, and grow there with little care or watering. Living Privacy Wall Fences and other privacy structures work just fine, but nothing beats a wall of friendly greenery for screening views from nearby neighbors. Fast-growing grasses, such as silver grass (Miscanthus sinensis), form dense clumps and grow more than 7 feet tall. Its tropical appearance is great near swimming pools.

If you think it is too small for tropical design, you can decrease the features such as fish pound, pool or anything that really eat your yard’s size or space. This landscape typically relies on the colorful flowers and plants and stone or concrete floor above. You can change it into sands flooring if you need something different such as Tropical Island. Tropical Themes Yep, the name of this tropical landscaping is Tropicali based on the site. For your information, you can adopt some tropical themes from Bali as one of the best tropical islands in the world. The landscape will be full of colorful colors such as yellow, orange and green. The tropical foliage won’t be far away with such colors for sure. You need to make a deal with the nature in order to gain the tropical theme like Bali. Flowers should be the focal point of your garden or backyard. Therefore, play with their color will make you nearly get the theme properly. Raise the mysterious feel Another idea for tropical landscaping is by raising the mysterious impression for your guests or visitors. It is very easy to gain that impression. Buy some bamboo on the plant market and consider the length which adequate for your garden or yard. After that, arching them all as your entrance is the next step that you have to do. I believe that people will be easily attracted to come to your landscape. I prefer to use Mexican bamboo here, but it regards where you are living now. The point is you will reveal the best landscape slowly to your guest. Living Palette Yep, you must use living palette for your tropical landscaping. It is necessary because to give bolder theme for your garden obviously. How to do that? It is very easy. You just remember this formula. Mix and match your big plants with others foliage. I recommend with many colorful flowers here. For example, the butterfly bush can be combined with philodendron and other yellow plants as the palette. With these flowers, the people will get the point that your garden theme is tropical plants. In addition, your palette has also textured very well with the combination. Natural Sounds Your tropical landscaping will never be complete if there are no natural sounds. The sounds here refer to the bird’s tweet, water from the rock and something like that. Moreover, it is also adding natural feel for your garden obviously. Some recommendations here are bird tweeting and water’s sound. You can gain some birds by providing high tree such as bamboo. For the water, just build a well or mini-pool which have natural stone in the middle. The most appropriate example is a fountain in the middle of your backyard or garden. That makes a bolder theme of tropical place for sure.

Get started by working on the idea given below: Cut the wall framing from the boards (wood) you have available – you can even purchase it for a few dollars easily.for the side paneling you can use roofing tin, it would provide strength to the house as well. You can use metal flashing to trim the corners of the panels. Also, this type of greenhouse’s entire structure is covered with corrugated roofing. 2: Lumber Frame Greenhouse You can make a smart 8ft in height greenhouse with a beautiful garden – all you need is a lumber frame for the foundation, big window frames for ventilation, and a door of course. You can nail the frame and fix it in the garden with stakes. 3: Hoop Style Greenhouse Plan Wood for laying out the basic foundation – measurements solely depend upon the area you want to cover. Rebar for making the hoop stand – take the open ended PVC pipes and fix them on the hoop stands. For the better grip, you can simply use screws to tight the PVC pipe and the stand. In order to provide strength to the circular frame, insert strong PVC pipe at the top. Cover the entire naked greenhouse with plastic sheet and attach it with the lathe. Lastly, do not forget to add the door, the basic wood frame which has plastic covering all around; and you are done. hoop style green house 4: Small Greenhouse The first step is to build the side frames – also, you must cut the ends of the studs keeping 8 inch difference. After that you must drill pilot holes in the frames and fix them with the screws. Likewise you can make the front and the back of the greenhouse – place the horizontal plates of this structure and in the similar manner, fix them with screws; you will find it an easier process. Lastly, make the door with basic wooden frame and place it on the front side – in order to provide the perfect professional touch, you can coat the entire joint area with the paint of your choice. 5: $50 Greenhouse Plan Hoop like greenhouse are very popular – here is another plan for getting a tunnel type greenhouse, these are ideal to have a small greenhouse garden too. You can construct the basic frame from pressure or compressed lumber. They last for at least 3 years even if the weather it at worst. You can leave the door open while making the structure – for the covering or top, you can use clear sheets or plastic. In the market you can easily find a special type of greenhouse sheets too. Last but not the least, insert or attach PVC pipes at the sides of the wooden structure so that it maintains the shape of the hoop. For details just go through this 50$ green house plan. 6: Dome Shaped Greenhouse If you love assembling the broken triangles, you must construct this kind of a greenhouse – it’s beautiful. You would not see this normally everywhere because it requires time to get completed. You can simply lay the foundations by fixing it in the ground with stakes. The tough part comes in when you have to get the wood cut in equal length and width – moreover, assembling takes time. You need to have proper measurement and a diagram to get a perfect shape. However, it is fun – you can cover the entire structure with a special kind of greenhouse sheet so get the perfect desired look. 7: Scrap Window Greenhouse This kind of project just requires you to make the most of the old and unwanted window frames that are lying in your junkyard. Simply make the basic wooden structure (foundation) and with the help of screws adjust and assemble the windows on it. You can add tin roofing and add glass to the windows which have broken ones. Simply add flowers to it so that beauty can be enhanced. 8: Scrap Door Greenhouse You must be having some old doors in your storeroom – it is the perfect time to take them out and make most of them. Follow the idea of simplest greenhouse and instead of side paneling, simply use the old doors – add tin roofing or plastic sheets to make a gorgeous and effective greenhouse for your west garden. 9: Pyramid Shape Greenhouse You can also make a greenhouse, a stylish one by doing: Take two doors and attach them from the hinges – place them on the ground in such a way that it looks like an inverted “V” – you can simply keep your plants under this – enjoy gardening! 10: Plastic Bottle Greenhouse I am not sure whether you would be able to collect a 1000 bottle – it is very interesting though! Within the simplest greenhouse structure made from wood, you can insert the collected plastic bottles to get the desired kind of greenhouse. I think this idea can work best for smaller space; you would need to add fewer bottles and get the task done easily.

Hydroponics is a type of agriculture that uses no dirt, and usually results in larger, fuller plants. I recently became interested in the topic, and decided to start my own vegetable garden using the Nutrient Film Technique (NFT). It involves a channel of nutrient enriched water constantly flowing past a plant's roots. Step 1: The Idea Because hydroponics requires a resevoir for water to be drawn from and returned to simultaneously, and I was just building a small system, my design has two gullies. This allows the water to easily go full circle. Along with the water pump, my system uses gravity to assist the flow of water. Each end of the PVC is one inch higher than the end that comes next in the circle. The end of the tube that water enters from is the highest, and the end that it leaves from is the lowest. To achieve this, I built supports out of lumber for the pipes. The supports also keep them high enough to be above the reservoir, so that gravity will return the water to it. Step 2: Materials 66" of 4" PVC Pipe - If I didn't already have PVC, I would have probably bought plastic gutters. 4 rubber adjustable end caps with hose clamps - about $3 each Submersible pump - I'm using this 16 oz Plastic cups Plants Irrigation tubing Opaque Bucket Plumbing cement Growing medium - I used expanded clay ball Hydroponics Nutrient Step 3: Build the stands Once you figure out the height of your reservoir, you can start designing your stands. Mine is about 13" tall, so my stands are 13", 14", 15", and 16". After cutting the lengths, I cut a triangle (with a height of 2.5") out of each one to hold the PVC. Next, I attached them together with the 2x4's. I found out the hard way that it's easier to make them level if you attach the 2x4's mid way up, instead of at the bottom. Step 4: Plumbing You'll need to drill a hole with a spade bit suitable for your tubing in each of the end caps. Drill the holes at the height that you want your water level to be at. I didn't think about it at first, so you'll see in the pictures that they're at the edge, I later had to adjust this, but there's a picture of that, too. Make sure your water level is high enough that the bottom of your cups will be submerged. My pump came with a removable attachment for the tubing, so I wrapped one side of it with Teflon tape and used plumbing cement to attach it to a piece of tubing long enough to reach from the upper tube to the bottom of the reservoir. I then pushed the tube through an end cap's hole. Push another piece long enough to reach from the lower tube to the reservoir. Then attach two end caps via tubing long enough to fit on both pieces of PVC. Step 5: Holes Depending on your plants, the spacing of your holes will be different. I wanted to plant at least six plants, so my spacing worked out to be 8-9 inches between each hole. I would have spread them out farther if I could, but my PVC isn't long enough. Step 6: Assemble Bring everything out to your final destination and set it up. Because mine is up against the screen of our porch, the lower side faces out, so everyone can get equal amounts of sunlight. Double check that the stands are all in the right orientation...i spent about 20 minutes trying to figure out why the water wouldn't run correctly. I drilled three holes in the lid to my bucket, one for the intake tube, one for the output tube, and one for the power cord. It allows me to leave the lid on, and thus help prevent algae from growing. Step 7: Cups Drill plenty of holes in the bottom and edges of each plastic cup, for the roots. Use the cups to measure out clay balls into a bucket of water. The water will wash off any dust that has accumulated on them. Step 8: Planting Carefully use a hose (I like the flat setting) to clean as much dirt as possible off the roots. Try not to mess them up...they don't like that so much. Once they're clean, surround them in the cups with clay balls. Use enough that they can support themselves and stand tall. When you're arranging the plants in the system, keep in mind what kind of plant they are. Put taller plants in the back, so they don't block the sun. My plants that grow heavier veggies are on the lower section, so that I can build a table from the plywood and 2x4's to support their crops. Step 9: Nutrients Mix according to the label. Mine required 20mL per 4L. Because I don't have any way of measuring mL, I converted it to about 4 tsp per 4L and mixed it in a 2L soda bottle. That was a pain. Next time I make it to the hydroponics store, I'm definitely buying a syringe. Step 10: Maitenance The nutrients have to be changed periodically, and it's hard to tell when it needs to be done. People do it anywhere from once a week to once a month, and it depends on how much you mix at a time. Some people also monitor their ph levels. Pool stores generally will check it for free. I don't have a lot of information on the subject to offer, however.

When you plan a landscape garden, one of the first things you consider is how good it will look once it is finished. Just as important as this, is another factor – whether the garden accommodates the needs of those who are likely to use it the most. Here are a few ideas that can help you create such a landscape garden: Develop a relationship diagram Before developing a plan for the landscape garden, you should discuss with family members what they want most from it. Some of the common functions that families require are – protection from wind, a barbecue area, a dog pen, a dining area, recreation space and a play area. Once you decide what you want from the garden, you can make a sketch which shows the location of the areas. This is called a relationship diagram. For instance, if you want a dining area, position it close to the kitchen. Based on this, you can decide where the plants have to be, and where the furniture and other fixtures are to be placed in the garden. Decorate the garden Here are a few simple, cost-effective ways to decorate the garden: Pick an area in the garden that you feel is a good spot for relaxing. Add an elegant patio day-bed. Arrange a few pillows that are convenient to lean against. If it is placed in an area that does not have a shade, get a canopy fixed overhead. Look for flat slabs used as stepping stones a few decades ago. You can get a glass splash-back fixed on it as a table-top. Place the stepping stone in between two to three short wooden chairs, and it can make a great arrangement where you can have a cup of tea in the evening. Glass splash-backs on walls can be a great addition to a greenhouse. Get the surfaces fixed before you arrange the plants against the wall. The splash-backs will prevent the walls from gathering the dirt and grime that it otherwise will, as a result of splashing when you water the plants. In keeping with the functionality of the room, you should opt for a green glass splash-back. Glass worktop surfaces can look very beautiful when the lighting is right. A good option is to place lights on the surface. Add lights that reflect the mood of the garden. For instance, if you want to give it a cool, breezy feel, place votives in seashells that are oversized. Arrange the shells in a shallow tray filled with sand. Place this arrangement on a worktop saver in the garden. Another idea to light up the area in the garden is a set of small, clear apothecary bottles with wicks and lamp oil in them, placed on a big glass cake stand covered by a hurricane. If you are apprehensive about using candles and other votives, the best option is battery operated lights. Make origami balloon lanterns in which you can place the lights and hang all over the garden. This is a safe option for kids’ parties, where there is a good chance that children will bump into the lights.
