Working with the ground, creating the perfect site


An oasis in a swampy land, part 1

Our club "Usadebka", in addition to lectures on gardening, fruit growing and floriculture, every season organizes trips to such country and garden plots, where there is something to learn. In August last year, club members visited the famous Romanov family in St. Petersburg.

Those who are seriously involved in gardening know Boris Petrovich and Galina Prokopyevna well from their publications in St. Petersburg magazines, including the Flora Price magazine. They also visited our club: they gave a lecture about growing near St. Petersburg watermelons and melons.

The site of the Romanov family is located near Kolpino, in an old vegetable gardening. On the way from the stop on the highway to their acres, I noticed that it was a swampy lowland, there was water almost everywhere, reeds and cattails grew in abandoned areas. And this is even before the seasonal rains start!


And therefore, our great surprise was understandable with all that we saw in the garden of this family. I want to say right away to those who are engaged in original design solutions - they are not there! There are no fashionable gravel dumps, boulders, collection conifers, rare ornamental plants. However, a large film bathing reservoir, made by the owner with his own hand, greatly decorates the site and, apparently, saves in the heat.

The Romanovs don't even have electricity. And as it turned out later, the land that had been cultivated for so long and diligently by the owners did not even belong to them. Moreover, at the end of the lease, they are going to take it away from them. The 27-year-old labor of people who have turned this piece of swampy land into a piece of paradise, where organic vegetables are grown in the literal sense, the variety of which is amazing, as well as huge - up to 20 kg or more watermelons, melons - all this can go under the knife of a bulldozer! Do we really care again ?!

The experience of the Romanov family is unique. Although they do not have a special agricultural education, the results they have achieved are worthy of the most careful study and application. Boris Petrovich is a philosopher (he says so about himself). And his reflections on life and work on earth are really worthy of attention. It is noteworthy that he and his wife began to develop the site late, when he was already about forty years old. There was no experience, I read a lot, experimented a lot.

Some greenhouses on the site for 27 years, more than thirty have been tried in different versions. And the search, he said, has not yet been completed. The most important task that he set for himself - soil creation... Let me remind you that they actually got the plot on a swampy area. The soil - for him - is the basis of everything. Soil with a high humus content for record yields, finally, soil that has not been applied for the past five years mineral fertilizers.

Boris Petrovich successfully solved this problem. Since the site was very damp, at first the water and cold coming from the ground made farming impossible. I had to lift and build up the soil. Wood chips were laid in tons. Boxes of boards were placed on it, into which weeds, hay, and manure were stacked in layers. We started with six acres. Now there are 18 of them. The number of boxes has been increasing every year.

New high ridges appeared for thermophilic pumpkin crops, which provided plants with warmth from the beginning of May until the end of the season in September-October. The agricultural techniques of each crop in the garden, be it cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes, pumpkins, potatoes, were worked out carefully, without haste, brought to perfection, until record harvests were obtained.

So, Boris Petrovich proved that in the open field from two plants cucumber on the warm ridge you can get a yield over a centner. The same technology was applied to melon crops (watermelon, melon). The results exceeded all expectations.


In the course of the development of the site, its own soil rotation system was developed. Since the presence of large greenhouses implies the release of "extra land" at the end of the season and taking it out to the garden, the existence of this garden is completely justified, moreover, it is simply necessary.

The land obtained as a result of rotting weeds, hay, manure, i.e. high-quality humus, has been used more than once in the general soil rotation system. Now a layer of loose, fertile, self-sufficient soil has formed on the site with a layer of two bayonets of a shovel. But as before, maintaining and replenishing the fertility of this soil on the site is the main task of the owners, and record yields are a consequence of this approach. The Romanovs do not seek to plant many plants. Large yields are obtained from a small area, and this is especially valuable. Why develop a lot of land, when from one box measuring 1x1x1 m you can get up to 40 pieces of beautiful melons!

The plot of this family made a huge impression on all of us. There was an arch at the entrance, bean entwined... There are a myriad of flowers and ornamental plants around the house: lilies, astilbe, daylilies, annuals, carefully grown by Galina Prokopyevna from seedlings. I was amazed at the variety of their assortment, I heard many names for the first time. The garden was full of colors - bright, cheerful.

From the south side of the house - clematis and grapes (new hobby of the owners). Then we walked around the garden for a long time, gasped and groaned, seeing unprecedented in size, shape and beauty pumpkin, wonderful leek, corn, celery, a huge amount of melons and watermelons, which were everywhere: on the street, in greenhouses, in a gazebo near the house. Large fruits lay on the shelves and waited in the wings.

All of us were amazed by the greenhouses, which were not made thoroughly (they often change their place in the garden): with holes in the sides, but in them, in spite of all the winds, ripe tomatoes, a lot of tomatoes, the most diverse - large, small (cherry), red, yellow, orange - in huge clusters and with clean beautiful tops. And also peppers, eggplant, physalis.

Such a result, in our opinion, could only be achieved by a true master! Then we all sat at the table in the gazebo, which Boris Petrovich specially built after there were a lot of guests in his garden. We ate juicy peppers and sweet sugary tomatoes, discussed varieties. Boris Petrovich brought a large watermelon and cut it open. The fruit turned out to be so sweet that it seemed to us all tastier than all those sold in the city of Astrakhan.

We said goodbye. The owner went to see him off to the bus stop. We talked about sad things. The enormous work invested in the land, and, most importantly, the unique 27-year experience is not very interesting for our officials. There is no response to Boris Petrovich's proposal to organize an experimental mechanized farm where ecologically clean, beautiful and tasty vegetables would be grown. Although there is a response! The land would be left to these hardworking people - and thanks for that! A grandson is growing up who could continue the work of the Romanov family. After all, only such an approach brings up a real owner, and, therefore, a respectful attitude to the land.

We, all listeners of our Usadebka club, wish Boris Petrovich and Galina Prokopyevna good health, new creative successes and, most importantly, a successful resolution of all those sore problems that worry today not only our hospitable hosts, but all of us.

In this craft, you can express yourself, delighting not only yourself, but also those around you with your creation. The video in this article will tell you about several interesting garden design options. Creative success!


Each owner of a summer cottage or suburban area draws up the territory adjacent to the house in accordance with their own ideas about a comfortable life. Someone likes the English neatness of lawns, someone is delighted with alpine slides, and someone likes a simple country life with all the accompanying attributes. Today we invite you to see what is so good about the rustic style in landscape design, what are its main features and what needs to be done to envelop your site with coziness?

The main characteristics of the rustic style in the design of the site

Carelessly placed decorative elements create the impression that they have just been forgotten on the street by the owners entering the house, and the disorder of neighboring flowers in a flowerbed resembles a forest glade, a flowering field or a meadow, where no one would even think of planting flowers according to varieties: cornflowers to the left, and yarrows to the right ... As nature "planted" them, so they grow.

How to set up a rustic plot

The most suitable materials for these purposes are wood and stone. What is most associated with suburban life? That's right, a log house immersed in greenery, a wicker fence and bright flowers making their way through it. By the way, nowadays it is not necessary to build a wooden house for the similarity to the prevailing stereotypes about rustic style to be accurate. Modern materials will help to solve the problem, for example, wood-like siding is perfect for these purposes. With wood siding on your home, you are one step closer to making your dreams come true.

A rustic fence is either a wattle fence or a wooden picket fence. In any case, we are again returning to the natural material - wood.

A gazebo and pergola will also be made of it, benches and a table will be made. By the way, if we talk about a gazebo in a rustic style, then the most interesting option would be a construction of raw boards with a thatched roof. More modern options combine wood construction, roof tiles and decorative wrought iron elements.

How to decorate a vegetable garden and a rustic garden

Not a single village plot is complete without a vegetable garden and a garden. Vegetables, spicy herbs grow in the garden, and the garden is buried in greenery and generously endows the owners with a harvest of fruits and berries. Even if your plans do not include stocking up on vegetables and fruits for the winter, a few bushes of carrots, cabbage, tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplants and zucchini will not burden you, believe me! But how nice it is to make a salad of freshly picked tomatoes and cucumbers, add herbs and herbs from the garden and season with fragrant sunflower oil. So much for the delights of suburban life!

Mixed cultivation of vegetables, flowers and herbs is practiced in the rustic garden. Here, between the rows of tomatoes and carrots, you can find bright "lights" of marigolds and zinnias. And shallots, parsley and dill neatly frame the beds of pepper.

In the garden, decorated in a rural style, only fruit trees grow, and they are not planted strictly in any order, but somewhat chaotically, combining various species and varieties on one site. At the same time, the owners do not set harvest records; for them, working in the garden and vegetable garden is, first of all, a pleasure.

Rustic-style flower beds are necessarily a riot of colors. On the same territory, both field flowers and garden flowers get along well, the main thing is to give preference to simple species: tulips, daisies, decorative sunflowers, marigolds, zinnias, cornflowers. The alternation of contrasting buds on one flower garden looks especially advantageous, where blue intertwines with yellow, and green sets off red.

Varieties of retractable sprinklers

Here, too, the main differences are in the principle of work.

  1. With rotary sprinklers, the rotation of the head will spray water from the blades. If the unregulated models will simply irrigate the area in a circle, then the regulated irrigation sector is adjustable. The irrigation range is decent - 20 meters.
  2. Serrated sprinklers do not have rotating nozzles, so they only spray water in one direction. The radius of action is much shorter - up to 6 m. They are convenient to use in areas with a complex landscape, where the range does not really matter.
Fan-type sprinkler PRS30

When purchasing sprinklers, you should pay attention to the recommended working pressure (usually 2-4 atmospheres). A large number of irrigation points require a good water pressure, otherwise water simply will not reach distant areas. A big plus when additional nozzles are offered with the sprinkler: there are more possibilities for adjusting the shape of the jet and its size.

If the automatic irrigation system is equipped with a controller, then it is not necessary to be in the country at the time of irrigation, smart devices will organize the whole process. Rain and moisture sensors will help to streamline the irrigation regime - they will prevent excessive soil moisture. Do not skimp on quality - all sprinklers must be from a trusted manufacturer with a good reputation, then their efficient operation and a long period of operation are guaranteed.

Japanese kindergarten from waste of granite production

Inspired by the example of the "sons of the sun", designer Yuri Razumovsky created a "Japanese" garden from the waste of granite production.

What are the Japanese famous for? The ability to see beauty in the simplest things - time. The ability to create masterpieces from any material is two. A loving relationship to every piece of land - three.

Northwest corner of a plot with a total area of ​​12 acres, located behind the house. The plot is dark (shadow falls from the fence, house and neighbor's bath) and wet. The relief is low, the soils are heavy clayey. In addition, there is a natural slope along which melt and rainwater collected in this corner.

What grew

What the engineer suggested

Make a drainage ditch along the fence and raise the level of the site by adding earth, sand and the remaining granite gravel from the construction.

What the designer decided

To create - after all, there was gravel at hand - a rocky garden with a Japanese mood. Since it is impossible to combat the shadow by engineering means, the predominant yellow color will create the illusion of sunlight. They managed to bring it into the local partial shade by planting shrubs - barberryThunberg f. 'Aureum' (yellow-leaved), perennial flowers - irisswampy(yellow flowers), host plantain (with yellow leaves), vines - hop ordinary (yellow-leaved), honeysuckle-caprile (flowers are pale yellow), Thälmann's honeysuckle (flowers are orange-yellow).

A pedestrian path and a small stone table were made from the waste of granite workshops ("granite crusts"). The vertical and horizontal stones in the central composition are old granite side stones found in construction waste.

The stone blocks were also used to make the sides around firs and pines. These mini retaining walls were needed not only for beauty, but primarily so that the root collar of trees would not accidentally fall asleep with earth and sand, which were used to raise the level of the site. Waste timber 150 x 150 mm came in handy here.

The bench was a thick board, which was previously used in the formwork for casting the base of the fence. And a small stump from a spruce that had dried up on the vine turned into one of its legs.

The border between the Japanese garden and the vegetable garden is a home-made wooden pergola, assembled from dry tree trunks (diameter 12-16 cm).

Sprinklers for irrigation of a garden plot: types and principles of work

With the onset of spring, watering green spaces becomes a real problem for owners of suburban areas, especially if the weather does not indulge in rains. Endless buckets and watering cans with water are physically exhausting and take a lot of time, pulling a hose around the section, injuring plants is also not an option, therefore, gradually, but surely, auto-fuel systems are replacing all manual devices.

One of the most important issues in their creation is the choice of the type of spray device. What sprinklers do manufacturers offer, and what are the features of each type?


What does "lazy vegetable garden" mean?

It has long been noted that lazy people are often the engines of progress. Lazy people also came up with a smart garden. As planned, lazy beds do not need to be dug, then weeded, watered and fed too often. Over time, the plants will become even more "independent", there will be less work with them, and the yield will increase. How to achieve such incredible results, we will explain below.

Differences from traditional beds

To make the beds "smarter" and begin to bring a good harvest without much difficulty, they should be properly organized. You need to understand what methods of processing and feeding plants do not suit us. One of the methods to facilitate the care of the plantings will be the arrangement of trellises. We also want to opt out of:

  • digging up the earth
  • loosening the soil after rain
  • weeding
  • too frequent watering
  • the use of poisons.

Can it be so? It is quite possible if you fulfill some of the requirements. A lazy vegetable garden involves:

  • mulching
  • re-sowing in one area
  • complex landings
  • use of green manure
  • reduction of the amount of land for cultivation.

Joint planting of garden crops for the benefit of everyone

Selection of crops for cultivation

The easiest way to grow plants in a lazy garden is to grow plants that sprout quickly: beans, zucchini, potatoes, pumpkin, corn, cucumbers. Immediately after the first weeding between the rows of vegetables, you need to fill in a solid layer of mulch. In this quality, hay, autumn foliage, grass, needles, bark, chips are suitable. Mulch retains maximum moisture under a thick layer, does not allow weeds to multiply, and prevents the formation of a dried crust on the soil.

In the same way, vegetables planted in the form of seedlings grow well. These are peppers, tomatoes, cabbage - all those that are usually planted in early spring. Greens and plants with small seeds also feel good on prepared beds. Before planting them, you should plant siderates - plants designed to prepare the soil for useful crops. We suggest using oats for this purpose. This crop loosens the soil, and it will also provide greens for mulching. Vegetables that are planted after oats take root well and grow quickly. Due to the layer of mulch, the planted crops do not require frequent watering, they do not need weeding and loosening.
