If your house is not over a flat ground but is either up the slope or down the slope you might be very interesting in this article. That slope in the garden might affect your house structure and it becomes vital to keep it stable and avoid any erosion affecting it.

The article goes through the many different ways you can preserve the slope and at the same time having a nice yard or garden. From structure and beautifully built stone stairs to more rustic styles there are many ways to help you maintain your property. They also suggest more natural ways of doing it like using a well planned selection of plants and trees to help. Trees and other plants will have roots growing downwards that would help avoid erosion and keep stable the ground.

The article is a must read for any homeowner with a property in that situation. Preventative measures will always be cheaper that dealing with the damage.

Some people like to have a beautiful manicure lawn and some other prefer something with a little bit less nature in their gardens. There are many reasons why you might want to opt to patio pavers in your garden: there is less maintenance involved, they create a nice stable surface and they can break a garden into different areas creating a more dynamic space.

Whatever the reasons you might have to prefer something like this the reality is that it might be a bit daunting to decide what exactly you want in your garden. And this is the article that can help with plenty of photos and inspiration to help you decide what exactly you want and why it might be a better option than other choices.

If you want to pave your garden but still keep plants you might want to consider raised beds. They will allow you to create individual planting spaces that you can either use for growing nice fresh herbs (providing you a nice stash for your kitchen and a very nice smell in your garden) or you can plant any other plant. They are a very nice way of organising and planning your garden and they can provide seating space.

Certainly in Ireland there isn’t much sun appearing in the sky, not even in summer. But cactus might be a plant to consider in your interior. If you are the type that like minimalism, want to have something that reminds you of sunnier places indoors, or simply have a deadly effect on your plants, you might want to consider this plant for your house. They are extremely difficult to kill from lack of watering, they are definitely going to remind you of the dessert, and they are extremely minimalist and they can have extremely beautiful flowers.
