English Garden Landscape Ideas Questions Answered!
- How damaging is English Ivy to trees?
It appears that ivy type plants are, indeed, benefiting from the increased CO2 levels accompanying global warming. We moved into a neighborhood and all the trees have English Ivy over them. I cut some of it at the base but the rest is taking a long time to die and I am wondering if it can live on the tree itself. Where the base has been attacked, it appears to be rotting away. It looks to me like this stuff has to be destroyed or we will lose all of our trees. Any ideas?
- How can I stop my dog digging up the garden?
We have two English Springer spaniels, both aged about 16 months, a dog and a girl. They both like to dig up plants and half eat them. We've done the usual, shouting at them etc. and trying to show them we are displeased. They don't seem to remember and do the same the next day! Any ideas how we can get them out of this habit?
- The Cost of H2O in our area is exorbitant! How can I learn about some kind of eco-friendly landscaping?
Our back yard is large and filled with wonderful plants, bonsi's and shrubs that were planted by my partners' father, who was the original homeowner. He was a master gardener. You can see the backyard at www.tomvoorhies.com. I want to build catch basins that use rainwater and gravity to make water features and a sprinking system. Does anyone know where I can turn to learn about environmentally sound and ecologically balanced landscaping. I live in the southeastern part of the US.
