Your Guide To Choosing Garden Gazebos

Let’s start by asking what we mean by a garden gazebo; because to some it will be a temporary structure a bit like a tent, whilst to others it is a more permanent building. For still others a garden gazebo is a decorative framework for an attractive display of climbing plants. Strictly speaking, an outdoor gazebo is any garden structure that provides shelter or encloses a sitting area from which the garden can be viewed in reasonable comfort. At the same time, a garden gazebo is an attractive feature that can be decorative in its own right or can be incorporated within a planting or landscape setting.

Many garden gazebos are temporary tent-like structures consisting of a metal framework over which a fabric weatherproof membrane is stretched. Sometimes this is simply a roof whilst in other cases there may also be sidewalls or screens that incorporate flexible windows and door coverings. These fabric outdoor gazebos are often used to provide shade or shelter for seating, dining or entertaining areas and are frequently chosen for temporary weather protection over building works in progress. The advantages of these fabric garden gazebos is that they are inexpensive, light and readily portable and can be rapidly erected and dismantled when required. They are easy to clean, dry rapidly and fold away for storage.

Today, there is such a variety of lighting styles available that planning and setting up attractive lighting has become quite easy.

For example, if you have a nice old knotty tree that you want to highlight, you can use feature lighting to enhance its looks. Feature lights will focus on the tree, and light it up so that everyone can admire it. You can use feature lights on your prized plant, flowerbed, or any other object of attention in your garden. Feature lights can be installed on stakes or on a wall. You can also achieve the same effect with up lights, which are smaller and are recessed into the ground, and they cast light is a straight beam.

The themes and moods that you can achieve with ambient lights are virtually endless. However, make sure you don’t setup conflicting moods for your garden, as this can make the garden look quite bizarre.

Excellent Trapping Attempt to Succeed Garden Fly Control

Fruit fly trouble begins as the weather warms in August. Flies lay their eggs under the skin of ripening fruit, maggots hatch and feed, spoiling the fruit, causing it to rot and drop. Trapping adult flies helps limit the breeding population. There are numerous variations of traps and lures.

Trapping is a method that you can use to monitor for fruit fly activity in your home garden. Although trapping can also be used to help reduce fruit fly numbers, it is generally not recommended as a control method alone. This is because trapping only captures some of the adult flies, while others around can still enter your garden and infest your crop.

The first and most important step when attempting to prevent fruit fly attack is good hygiene. Mature maggots pupate in the soil to remerge as adult flies and collecting infested fruit breaks their lifecycle. Signs that eggs have been laid in fruit are dimples or weeping clear sap on the fruit. Pick these fruit off as well as any damaged and rotting fruit. It’s also important to pick up fallen fruit as soon as it drops before maggots have a chance to escape from the fruit and burrow into the ground to pupate.
