Pruning trees and shrubs to enhance garden views

April 10, 2015

For a homeowner who doesn’t necessarily spend much time in their garden but wants to enjoy it from above, taking into account the garden views from upstairs windows and/or decks will help in dictating the planting plan.

In San Francisco, where garden space is typically 30′ X 30′, people look to maximize the design effects: creating outdoor rooms with patios, paths, fountains and arbors. The same is true with a garden that is mainly viewed from an upstairs deck or window. One example is a garden that we have been maintaining and restoring for over a year. The objective is that homeowner be able to see as much of the garden as possible from the 2nd and 3rd story decks. See: http://www.everything-patio-furniture.com/garden-arbors.htm

An existing 35′ Podocarpus tree adjacent to the deck requires annual pruning and is due to be thinned and reduced on our next visit in October. While we typically schedule an arborists to prune trees larger than 25′, deck access from the homeowner and neighbor’s property make it possible for us to safely work on the tree.

Once the Podocarpus has been pruned the garden will require only minimal adjustments for the next 8 to 10 months. In the past year, we have pruned several Plum trees along the fence line and through out. At this point, they are in far better aesthetic shape: having opened up the garden as well as enhanced views. Tip pruning the canopy and select branches of Angel’s Trumpet: Datura, is also necessary throughout spring and summer for maintaining the deck views of the rear planting areas. Although this tree is frost tender in many climates, we are fortunate that it thrives in the Bay Area, and that there are several nice varieties to choose from.

Badly formed plants such as the leggy growing, purple flowering Princess Tree: Tibouchina, are also candidates for a severe heading back. While this pruning technique leaves the tree looking hacked and butchered for several months afterwards, on a healthy specimen, dormant buds will grow from the woody stumps creating a new floriferous head.

As with all gardens, the seasons bring about changes, creating new expressions. With fall upon us, our job for view enhancement is nearly complete, once the Podocarpus tree is pruned. After that, we will have many months to concentrate on the under story and plantings.

April 9, 2015

Searching for a furniture shop in Hong Kong can be inconvenient and time consuming. Going out to buy furniture in Hong Kong does not guarantee you’ll find the sofa, table or chair that’s suitable.

Quality

Leather couches can vary in quality even in the same design. Ensure that your online store has had good feedback in regards the durability of its product.

Ergonomics
The furniture you buy will become part of your life. Even more so with the cosier apartment spaces found in Hong Kong, furniture must be both space efficient and comfortable. The same goes for office furniture as you will be using this day in day out as well.

Liven up your Bedroom with Fitted Furniture

April 6, 2015

The house is more than just shelter; it could be a cornucopia of memories and a haven of rest, and the physical arrangements and architecture of the house could contribute much to its atmosphere. The room, most especially, is a place of rest for people, and must therefore be fitted with the most appropriate, yet useful, kind of furniture.

Traditionally, people bought furniture for sole or main purpose of aesthetics. Innovations, however, have allowed people to choose furniture that would not only look good, but would also be functional, thereby saving time, and if picked from the most reputable sellers, money as well. More than that, carefully chosen fitted bedroom furniture could also enrich and improve the aesthetic aspects of a bedroom. It is for this reason that people are encouraged to invest in only companies with reputable quality.

One very good thing about fitted bedroom furniture is that customers are given the liberty to choose the type of material, design, size of the furniture to be fitted in their bedrooms. This means that customers need not worry about design or color clashes. Most fitted furniture companies offer designer tips as well, customizing the furniture depending on the make and size of the bedroom.

The best part, however, about fitted bedroom furniture is that they create internal storage from seemingly awkward spaces, nooks and crannies, for instance: underneath stairways, beds and such, allowing you to keep the bedroom tidy, clean, and organized.

The person who would want a bedroom of easy, neat storage would do well to invest in fitted bedroom furniture. Such furniture could be costly, but because the furniture would depend on the customers’ specifications, the final price is not fixed. The best thing to do, before purchasing fitted furniture, is to plan and consider one’s budget. Next is to provide oneself of an array of choices to be able to get the best deal.

Why The Need For Bedroom Appliances

April 4, 2015

Bedroom appliances are not only about creating a more beautiful bedroom. Certainly a sleek, modern design will go a long way to make your bedroom look even more stunning. This is, after all, the place where you will spend nearly one third of the rest of your life. A well designed appliance does more than that though: it also has a very practical purpose.

A good example of a beautiful, yet practical appliance is a soapstone candle holder. There are stunning ones on the market made from Indian soapstone for example. They will do their job of holding your candles with a style and flair that will be the envy of your friends. The Indian ones are usually aromatic, exuding lovely smells that will soothe you and help you to sleep better. It comes as no surprise that these aromas are often used in the East to help people concentrate better during the meditation process.

If you regularly suffer from sore throat and congested nasal passages due to dry air, a good humidifier will certainly go a long way to alleviate these problems. A fine quality recirculating humidifier will ensure that the air in your bedroom doesn’t dry out and also that the heat in the room is evenly distributed.

An ordinary air circulator is usually a lot less expensive than a humidifier. It nevertheless does a good job of keeping the air in a particular room moving. You could argue that an ordinary fan has much the same purpose and probably costs less. The truth is that an electric fan simply can not move the same amount of air per minute as an air circulator. If you want to prevent hot or cold spots from forming anywhere in a room, the technology behind a circulator makes it much more suitable therefore.

If you, like millions of other people, suffer from allergies you will know how frustrating it can become during springtime will all those pollen in the air. A normal house also has lot of other allergens, all of which can cause you to sneeze and wheeze. You really don’t have to suffer this. A relatively small, desktop air purifier will remove all common airborne allergens from the air.

We all know how uncomfortable a long summer night can be. You toss and turn endlessly, unable to sleep because of the heat and stickiness. What one needs on a night like this is a good quality pedestal type air circulator. This will keep the air moving much better than an ordinary fan. An added bonus is that they also produce a lot less noise than an ordinary fan.

Bedroom appliances can therefore go a long way to make the time you spend in your bedroom more pleasant. They not only serve a practical purpose, but they also form part of the ambiance of the room. An additional benefit is that they more often than not use a lot less energy than their predecessors.
