Realization of the permanent plant border
Below we give tips to prepare your new border as well as possible for planting.
You can plant after the preparation.
Depending on the chosen concept (macho, prairie, woodland, ...) specific measures may still be needed.
You can request more information about this when ordering.
Soil sample analysis
Do you not know which soil you are dealing with? Not sure whether all nutrients are sufficiently available?
Then we recommend having a soil sample analyzed before planting.
- Free your soil from root weeds such as ponytail, hedge bindweed, ...
- Keep soil non-fertilized with concepts such as prairie or steppe.
- Work in and cover with stable materials such as gravel, sand, pebbles, dolomite or lava, if necessary
- Optionally provide soil with certain nutrients or lime if this appears necessary from soil analysis
Mulching (= application of cover layer) with inert materials.
This makes maintenance easier, provides an insulating layer in winter and prevents compaction of the soil by treading the border.
- Interesting for plantations that are not ground covering (eg prairie, steppe, ...)
- Lava, gravel, pebbles, coarse sand, dolomite. In other words: any inert material
- Layer of 7 cm thick can be applied after planting or before planting (in combination with a prairie planter)
- Planting is done with the clot half in the ground when lava has not yet been applied.
- Planting is done with a prairie planter if the lava has already been applied.
Planting period is always dependent on the weather conditions.
