kung DIY, dapat marunong kang mag-cultivate ng lupa bago ka magtanim.
Love God above all else.

pa-join sa usapan nyo mga sis!

@happy_pomelo kamusta na ang garden mo? :) post ka ulit ng photos! sana na-highlight yung features ng house nyo, sayang ang architectural kung di ma-complement ng landscape :)

@aquacharly sis I'm so happy nung nabasa ko yung sinabi mo na "landscape architect" :D usually kasi mga landscape contractors or artists ang na-encounter ko. ikaw pa lang yata na-encounter ko here sa GT na nagbanggit nito.

yung sa bahay, kinontrata ko nalang yung village gardener ng kabilang village.i paid 4k for 3 days work.pinatanggal ko yung weeds,pinapantay yung lupa and they put a truck of garden soil.maganda kinalabasan.yung materials 5k lahat.half part of the lawn yung medyo shady part, carabao grass pinalagay ko. sa harap and sa kabilang gilid, bluegrass pinalagay ko(yung ginagamit sa golf course), mas fine kasi sya and mas hindi madaling mamatay(though mas tough ang carabao grass).mahal lang ng 10php yung bluegrass sa bermuda grass. di ko na pinalagyan ng plants.gusto ko kasi plain green lang para zen type.kaya lang sa lawak ng lawn para tuloy memorial park  ;D pag di ako busy tsaka ko tataniman ng flowering plants.

^sis why not try yung rock garden / dry garden if zen type ang habol mo, easy pa to maintain (wag lang yung may pet ka kasi siguradong sabog ang pebbles) :)

^ay sorry bro di ko nabasa agad yung sa profile mo!  ;D

mahirap nga pag may stray cats, pero yung sa ulan, kaya yan basta ok ang drainage system nyo and may liner naman yan sa ilalim at pvc edging sa may paving and the planting area kaya di yan kakalat ng bongga :)

pero ok rin ang flowering plants, try mo yung medyo tolerant sa shade kung gilid mismo ng bahay baka kasi di naaarawan yung part na yun masyado :)

hindi ba madali mamatay blue grass? kala ko madali sya mamatay or high maintenance sya kaya carabao grass na lang pinalagay ko eh. =(

sis kaya sinasabi na high maintenance ang blue grass, dahil mas mataas ang water need nya than carabao grass and also mas dapat na nimo-mow ang blue grass. if you want spikey or medyo thin na grass, go for blue grass or bermuda...if mas gusto mo full carabao grass.

blue grass (yung totoong blue grass na tumutubo mostly sa cold climate) requires fertilizer pa (like nitrogen) and alternate seeding para magmukhang full, and hindi ito drought resistant (like kentucky blue grass). di ko lang sure kung anong klase ng blue grass ang tinda sa pinas

yung mga familiar ako na shade tolerant, hindi masyadong namumulaklak (mga greens to), like philodendron, monstera, mga ferns, etc...sa mga flowering na shade tolerant pwede yata gardenia, forget-me-nots, viola, camellia, etc.

observe mo na lang ang paligid mo sis. mostly dito sa atin, sa mga malalawak na area like parks, carabao grass ang nakalagay. hindi naman pangit tignan. may theme lang na binabagayan yung mga itinatanim na grass. if you like zen or japanese themed garden, then go for blue grass. kung tropical naman mas bagay ang blue grass. pero kung sa patibayan mas hamak na tough ang carabao grass. nagtataka lang ako kung bakit mas mahal sa inyo yung blue grass samantalang dun sa naglandscape sa garden ko, same lang ang price ng blue at carabao grass. mas mahal pa nga yung isang variant ng carabao grass na mukhang dwarfed carabao grass dahil PHP200/sqm ang price nya. if you won't mind, pwede mo bang ipasilip sa amin yung garden mo? post ka ng pictures.
Love God above all else.

hindi ka magsisisi dun sa carabao grass. kapag fully grown na, ang ganda tignan. masarap maupo. hindi ka aaray kapag natusok ka unlike sa blue grass na kailangan mong maglagay ng sapin para hindi ka matusok (maliban na lang if you are wearing jeans)
