• Pavement material
Pavement can be made in different materials. You can use Indian Sandstone, Bricks, gravel, kilsaran, cobbled stone, tobermore and roadstone. All these materials are different. For example cobblestones come in a variety of colors. They are very durable and popular paving material in Dublin. Flagstone is cut from natural stone and costs more than cobble stone but it is also durable and looks good. Gravel is cheaper but needs a lot more maintenance for instance weeding. Tarmac comes only in black but it is cheaper.
Putting up paving Dublin involves first of all digging the site to any paving that may already be there and level the ground. Pavers then lay a geo sheet over the bare earth. This is a man made membrane to separate the earth from the pavement. Later, a rock and sand base is laid to carry the weight of the pavement. A bed of sand is then laid and topped up with the paving blocks. The paving blocks are then sealed with fine sand and compacted. Finally the pavers may add a kerb or border. The whole process usually takes about two days to completion.
Paved driveways are low maintenance because there is no longer any need for weeding. Sometimes some soil will land on the pavement and to ensure that nothing grows, you can spray weed killer every year on the pavement.
Landscape gardeners serve multiple purposes. Flowers, trees, and shrubs are useful for adding to the aesthetics of your home. They also attract birds. Plant those that provide food for the birds and cover from the sun. Put up bird feeders and plant a variety of trees and shrubs in order to attract a variety of birds. Holly, sunflower, grasses and apple trees for example, are favorites with birds. Even your lawn provides plenty of juicy worms for the birds to eat.
The size of your trees will depend on the size of your garden. Larger gardens will better accommodate bigger trees with ease. Smaller gardens are also great for climbing plants, which do not require a lot of horizontal space. Ivy, honeysuckle and wisteria are some of the popular climbing plants that are easy to maintain and native to Dublin.
Select plants that fit in with your lifestyle too. If you love spending time in your garden, then you can plant those that need lots of training and maintenance. People who have a busy lifestyle are better off planting low maintenance plants and trees. Jasmine for example is not a low maintenance plant because it needs a lot of training to keep it from overgrowing.
To get butterflies and bees swarming around in your garden, you want to plant a variety of flowering trees such as lavender which provide nectar for their food. Any large open flower is bound to be a favorite with bees. Don’t just plant for yourself; remember to consider the local wildlife.
