Diy garden pyramid planting boxes, is an astonishing concept for the amateur gardener who doesn't want to pay anything for gardening expenses. You can build garden pyramids without spending a single cent. The best part is, you can create your very own "self-supported" garden pyramid by yourself using only your imagination. Garden pyramids are one of the great top-notch gardening tips I would like to share with you. All you need to build them is only four basic items. Those are: rubber gardening gloves, a bag of soil, a hammer, and some wood boards. Here is how to build the gardening pyramid.
All it takes to build a pyramid gardening box is a hammer and a lot of patience. Of course, the perfect gardening pyramid is not one that you can build in a day but a few hours or so.
So first, it's time to begin digging up the soil. This is a very simple and essential step. Dig out the old soil and mix in new soil for your new garden box.
Now for the wood: use some wood pieces like old fence planks. If you have a garden fence, then you may already have pieces of wood or planks lying around. And since you're already planning a gardening pyramid, you may as well use those pieces of wood or planks that you have on hand.
Lay out the wood boards so you can build the pyramid garden box. Lay them out in the proper manner according to your ideal garden pyramid design. As soon as you're done with laying out the wood, place the wood and soil into a bag, and start filling the garden pyramid boxes with the soil.
Start filling your garden pyramid with soil from the corner of the wood to the top of the soil in your pyramid garden box. It is very important to fill the whole wood box in order to avoid having any air pockets in the soil.
Keep on filling up the box until you have enough soil to reach the top of the wood box. Now you should keep on checking and filling up the top of the box. Do this until your top of the pyramid box is full and does not leave any more empty space.
This is the reason why you should always fill up all of the sides of your wooden pyramid box until it's almost full.
Once you're done filling up your pyramid box, it's time to seal up all the soil with soil to fill up the pyramid boxes. Don't forget to pack the soil inside the pyramid boxes. This will also prevent the water from penetrating the soil.
Once the pyramid garden boxes are all full, fill up the bottom section of the soil box with gravel or sand to provide the foundation for your pyramid garden box. Fill up the soil box with a second layer of gravel or sand on top.
You now need to decide whether you want to plant seeds or vegetables in your pyramid garden box. I prefer to use herbs and plants in the herb garden boxes. The best time to plant the herbs is right after the winter season. Plant the herbs as soon as you finish filling up the soil boxes.
One thing that you should avoid is over-watering the garden plants. It's always best to water your plants properly once a week in order to keep your plant healthy. Also, if your herbs are young and small, then you shouldn't plant them in the garden boxes until after they have sprouted.
Growing a vegetable garden in the top of your garden pyramid is also a good idea. You can do this by placing some seeds in a portion of the soil in your garden box, and add a layer of soil. Fill up the soil box with another layer of soil, then plant the seed. Make sure that you plant the seeds at the right time to allow the seeds to germinate. Plant seeds in your garden boxes once the ground temperature has risen to at least 75°F or up to 80°F.
Here's the best time to plant seedlings:
Winter: Before the air freezes.
Spring: After the first warm days of spring.
Summer: After the first cool days of summer.
Fall: After the first cold days of fall.
Don't plant vegetables if the nights fall below 50°F.
The size of the container depends on the amount of plants or the types of plants. Small containers are good for small plants. You can also add some fertilizer to the container. Fertilizer helps plants grow in the pyramid garden boxes.
Now it's time to put the plant in your garden pyramid box. There are two kinds of gardening pyramids: single-layer and multi-layer. You should create a multi-layer pyramid if you plan to place lots of plants and vegetables in the pyramid garden boxes.
In this case, place a seed-in-a-soil layer first, then add a second layer of soil on top of it.
Make sure to plant plants in the holes you made earlier. Place your plants and plants in holes until you have only a couple of empty holes left.This will ensure that the plants don't fall out of the holes.
To do this, simply cover the empty holes with a small pebble or a piece of gravel.
Also, never plant more than two seeds or plants in a hole. You can even use pieces of burlap bags to make the holes. This will ensure that the plants do not get out of the hole.
This is one of the most important tips that you should never forget when building gardening pyramids.
