With the help of high hedges it is possible to divide the territory of the garden into separate functional zones and even disguise household structures. How to plant a hedge in order to achieve the desired results?
Planted plants for hedge better in a trenchand not in separate pits: the fence should grow in a single array.
The optimal trench width for single row planting is 40-50 cm, double row 70-90 cm, for multi-row it is added 30-40 cm for each next row. Trench depth is 50-60 cm
Cooking a pit
The upper fertile layer, taken out of the trench, mixed with peat, humus or compost, add mineral fertilizers. In heavy clays and loams - sand, in sandy loam - loam, in acidic soils - lime, in alkaline - peat. The resulting soil mixture is poured into a trench 10-15 cm above the soil surface, taking into account the further subsidence of the substrate.
In the center - for a single row hedge or at a distance equal to the width of the aisle - for two rows. Between the pegs they tighten the cord and prepare the pits for the plants.
Planting a multi-row hedge
If the landing is multi-row - the pits are staggered. After this, the pegs are removed and the plants are planted. It is very important to strictly observe equal distances between neighboring plants.
What should be the density of landing?
3-5 plants per 1 m are usually placed in a single-row hedge. More dense is applicable for molded hedges.
In free-growing hedges planting more free, given the diameter of the crown of shrubs or trees in adult condition.
When combining different plants, it is important to take into account the shape of the crown, the growth rate, the ratio to light, moisture, and soil composition.
The root neck (the place of transition of the trunk to the root) should be located at ground level. Remove damaged roots, healthy pruned 1-2 cm to stimulate root formation.
Plentifully water the plants and compact the soil around the roots. It is useful to add some kind of root formation stimulator to the water - Kornevin, Zircon or Heteroauxin. The soil to reduce evaporation of moisture and suppress the growth of weeds mulch bark, wood chips, peat.
