Village study: making a flower bed with a fence of vines
A beautiful flowerbed always revitalizes the garden, courtyard or cottage area. And the process of creating a flower garden with their own hands will bring a lot of joy. It is advisable to make a flowerbed, which will not just be summer, but it will also be appropriate to look in the frame of the golden autumn foliage. Therefore, at today's master class we will create a flowerbed with a fence of vines.
Bed from scrap materials with their hands: master class
Training tool and vines
According to the idea we will have a small flowerbed of vines, so we take the basis for the fencing low. Prepare the same size is not very thick cleaned rods, which will stand upright, and on which holds the entire structure of the weave. Racks will stand two together, so the composition looks more beautiful.
For weaving, we picked up the bars of a thin vine, but you can use any other ones you have. To add color to the weave, we use two kinds of twigs: peeled and uncleaned. The result is a two-color fence, perfectly suited to green plants in the background.
For work, we also need the following tools: scissors, secateurs, thread, hammer, large nail, rake.
Preparation of a support for weaving the beds of vines
Before you begin to weave the flowerbeds, you need to calculate the number of racks and multiply them by two. Then, with the help of a large nail, or any other tool, it is necessary to make pits in the ground.
In each hole vertically insert two racks.
To our racks firmly held in the ground, you need to use a hammer to compact the earth around the posts.
With all the other risers, we do the same manipulations, only follow the line of our flowerbed. It should be smooth and, if possible, even, so that it is easier to manipulate the weave.
Begin to weave a fence of vines
To make the whole fence look beautiful, weaving should start from the bottom, gradually rising up. We chose an unusual weaving, the essence of which consists in alternating branches of the vine: three branches of the vine cleared + three branches of the vine in the skin.
At the first stage, you need to select three cleaned twigs and put them together.
Do not worry about the uneven tips of the vines, we have them at the end of the netting carefully pruning. The first three twigs tied a rope to a first pole of the flower beds. Don't hide it, she looks nice in a rustic sketch of the vine.
Twigs spear alternating pillars of support: first on top of the vine, then inside, then again up and inside.
The ends of the rods are cut off after the last support and tied.
The alternation of the branches of the vine in the fence
After three branches of the cleared vine we fix three branches not cleared. And we do the opposite: if the peeled branches were fastened on top of the support, then the unclean begins to weave from within.
Brings beauty or remove all the excess
When our weaving is ready, we can proceed to the circumcision of all extra tips, twigs, threads. To do this, cut off all the protruding sections with a pruner or scissors, making the fence of our flower bed neat.
Write a village sketch from scrap materials
For the decor any suitable materials suitable for the chosen flower bed style will suit. Since we have a flower bed in a rustic style, we use the decor as close to the subject as possible: a large stump, an "ancient" flower pot, a flower from a vine, and ceramic products.
Adding a certain decorative element, you can supplement it with green plants and flowers. Since we want the flowerbed from the vine to please us until late autumn, then we choose such flowers that will grow with time and will be beautifully fragrant until the frosts.
So our flowerbed, created by our own hands from the vine, is ready. Its decor, flowers, a combination of vines and weaving gives an ancient rural style multiplied by modernity. This masterpiece looks very actual, fresh and colorful. To fix the composition you can use the usual colorless varnish and cover the vine in two layers. Then neither the bright summer sun, nor the autumn rains, can change the appearance of the weaving.
