Today Rachel is sharing an adorable project she recently created; a vertical garden from recycled pallets!The chain link fence in our yard provides a few unsightly views of our lovely neighbors' weed-infested parking lot of a backyard. Digging out these roots is not feasible – they go down into the soil for up to 1.5 metres – yes, 5 feet.
It’s critical to controlling horsetail to hoe off the initial stalks to prevent them distributing the spores.
The leaves have a waxy coat, which makes the plant highly resistant to contact weedkillers like glyphosate. Crushing the leaves to break up the coating helps weedkiller to penetrate and become absorbed but in large areas it is not so easy to crush all the leaves .
Another method is to thicken a mix of strong glyphosate with wallpaper paste or starch and paint it directly onto the fronds. Glyphosate used to be considered a very safe and environmentally friendly herbicide but recently a number or reports have been published that cast doubt on this. Amcide Weedkiller ( Ammonium Sulphamate) was fairly effective although it could 3 applications to win.
For best results treatment should be made to actively growing weeds between 1st March and 30th September. Kurtail (previously Kibosh) which is glufosinate-ammonium will kill all grass and broadleaved weeds it contacts in approximately 7 days and provide effective control of annual and perennial weeds including thistles, couch grass and mare’s tail (or horse tail).
Kurtail is degraded after contact with the soil and crops can be drilled or planted immediately after application except on sands or very light or immature peat soils. Amcide (Ammonium Sulphamate) was an effective weedkiller used for killing tree stumps and brushwood clearing.
After 4 weeks or so, it reacts with the air to form sulphate of ammonia – adding a nitrogen boost to the soil.
Pruning and trimming trees and large shrubs that reside on your property can be a frustrating task if you do not have the proper gardening and lawn equipment. At first glance, the blade of the Silky 179-39 Telescoping Landscaping Pole Saw HAYAUCHI 390 may look like your typical prunning blade, but there’s more than meets the eye.
Most typical pruning and lopping poles reach 12 or 15 feet, but the Silky 179-39 Telescoping Landscaping Pole Saw HAYAUCHI 390 can reach up to 21 feet.
The Silky 179-39 Telescoping Landscaping Pole Saw HAYAUCHI 390 weighs in at just under 7 pounds. There was almost not a bad thing to say about the Silky 179-39 Telescoping Landscaping Pole Saw HAYAUCHI 390, but one consumer did have issues with the amount of strength and exertion that was needed when it was extended to full potential.
With nearly 50 customer reviews, the Silky 179-39 Telescoping Landscaping Pole Saw HAYAUCHI 390 has earned an almost-perfect customer satisfaction score of 4.9 out of 5 stars. Fungus gnats, insects that belong to the fly family Diptera, occur around damp, decaying vegetation, algae, and fungi. Fungus gnats are sometimes confused with other small flies not discussed here, including black flies, midges, mosquitoes, shore flies, moth flies and March flies. Fungus gnats develop through four stages: egg, larvae (four larval stages or instars), pupa, and adult.
The larvae feed for about 2 weeks and then pupate near the soil surface within thread chambers. Yellow sticky trap used to trap adult fungus gnats (Diptera), whitefly (Hemiptera) and other flying insects. On honeyvine milkweed (Asclepias, milkweed bugs (Hemiptera) could be considered beneficial for feeding on the seed pods thereby reducing the seed production of this weed.
Uwimana says she's proud of her course and is optimistic that she will get a job immediately after school. For many years, women have not been associated with certain jobs such as building, welding and many other physical ones. As a result, even those that have shown interest in those jobs have been sidelined during recruitment in most cases. However, the Rwanda government sought to change this perception in society well knowing that both men and women are vital for the country’s development and the fruits can be seen. Uwimana says circumstances pushed her to work much harder than everyone in order to know twice as much as the boys and weld twice as better.

Uwimana, whose class is largely composed of male students, says she’s a source of attention in her class. Francine Dusabeyezu, 17, joined the welding course after failing to continue with formal education. Patricia Nyirakamana, a motor mechanic, says she has been doing welding for the last 5 years and she earns fairly well. Wilson Kabagambe, the AEER coordinator in Eastern Province, says the organization is committed to help the community gain practical skills regardless of one’s gender.
Rwanda has been promoting vocational training for vulnerable children and youth as a key to self-sustainability.
He says TVETs are helping to address the shortage of plumbers, carpenters, travel guides and technicians. Since we are renters a new wooden fence was not an option and I didn't think I'd have the patience to wait on a dozen bushes to grow tall enough to block the view so I schemed an inexpensive way to at least draw attention away from the eye sore(s). Comments are moderated (everything constructive is approved), so they may take a bit to appear.
Let it get bigger than stated and food begins to be stored in the roots again, and round and round you go ad infinitum.
It inhibits the activity of an enzyme, glutamine synthetase, which is necessary for the production of glutamine and for ammonia detoxification. However I have seen ammonium sulphamate for sale on Ebay as a compost accelerator (with dire warnings about not using it as a herbicide!) Just thought you’d like to know. This blade is designed to cut only on the down stroke movements, meaning you won’t have to exert much force. Not one other person had anything negative to report on the The Silky 179-39 Telescoping Landscaping Pole Saw HAYAUCHI 390. These tiny gnats can appear in large numbers in or around buildings, prompting complaints, and also can be a problem in greenhouses, nurseries, and interior plantscapes. When their preferred food choices run out, they feed on roots, stunting plant growth, causing foliage to yellow and leaves to drop. Adult fungus gnats are dark, delicate-looking insects, similar in appearance to mosquitoes.
The ¼ inch long larvae have a shiny black head and an elongate, whitish to clear, legless body. They feed on the seeds by piercing the seed pod and can be found in all stages of growth on the plants in mid to late summer.
The nymphs look like adults but do not have full wings and their color pattern is different. For an organic approach to Strategy 3, consult the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI™) for appropriate insecticidal soap products.
In fact for a long time it was generally held that women are most suited for tasks that require a lot of care. And we want girls to understand this,” he says, adding that they look at skilling women as an opportunity to develop the country.
A few trips to the hardware store and a local dumpster and I had created a new focal point that helped cozy up our little yard with bright colors and a bit of texture.1. The application of glufosinate leads to reduced glutamine and increased ammonia levels in the plant tissues.
The action of the Silky 179-39 Telescoping Landscaping Pole Saw HAYAUCHI 390 allows gravity to provide the power.  Since the blade of the Silky 179-39 Telescoping Landscaping Pole Saw HAYAUCHI 390 is equipped with razor sharp teeth and a sharpened tip and base, you can cut, trim, prune and score your trees without damaging them.
High or low, you’ll be able to reach every branch that needs maintenance with the Silky 179-39 Telescoping Landscaping Pole Saw HAYAUCHI 390. Fungus gnats infest soil and container media, where larvae feed on organic matter and roots, feeder roots and root hairs. They do not bite people or animals and, in the United States, are not known to carry human pathogens.
Larval damage can be especially serious in greenhouses, nurseries, and sod farms where they harm seedlings, cuttings, and young plants without fully developed root systems. Any root feeding in gardens or landscapes is usually minor in comparison with the gnats’ beneficial role as decomposers converting dead vegetation into nutrients for plant growth, as important pollinators and as food for small animals such as birds, reptiles and beneficial insect predators.

Adult females deposit 30 to 200 whitish-yellow eggs singly or in clusters in crevices or cracks on the surface of growing media, and in moist, organic debris.
Use biological control agents such as nematodes, rove beetles, and mites to control fungus gnats. Best results are obtained by applying to approximately 20cm of heathy plant growth above ground. This causes photosynthesis to stop and the plant dies within a few days Developed primarily for use with genetically modified resistant crops.
Simply put, if you have trees that need regular trimming and pruning, this is one tool that you don’t want to be without.
Both larvae and adults can spread plant pathogens and may promote disease in commercial crops.
If conditions are especially moist and fungus gnats are abundant, larvae can leave slime trails on the surface of media that look like trails from small snails or slugs. Bacillus thuringiensis subspecies israelensis (Gnatrol and Summit Mosquito Bits) is effective against larvae in potted plants. Because new adults emerge daily, repeat sprays every few days for at least two weeks to reduce populations. Check it out yourself with a reputable seller like Amazon and you know you are getting the best deal. They have been implicated in the transmission of plant fungal diseases, including black root rot, Pythium blight, Verticillium wilt, Botrytis blight and Fusarium wilt.
It is toxic for 2 days and doesn’t kill egg laying adults, so repeat applications are necessary.
The bodies of milkweed bugs contain toxic compounds derived from the sap which they suck from milkweed. Fungus gnats are relatively weak fliers and remain near plants running or resting on growing media, foliage, or plant litter. 6-8 empty (clean) paint buckets or large aluminum cans (think bulk sized beans) as planters.
Steinernema feltiae is an insect killing nematode that can be applied as a drench treatment. They are used as research insects because they are easy to use in the laboratory, have a short life cycle and are easy to manipulate. To kill larvae, allow soil to dry as much as possible (without damaging plants) between waterings..
Best results come from a first application at planting and then following with 2 to 3 weekly applications. A Dremel rotary tool is really handy for cutting through nails if you have one and want to make this a quick job.
1 bag of potting mix, flowers in two sizes, garden gloves, safety goggles, and 2-4 screw hooks if you have a chain link fence. Choose which pallet to use as your base and then pull all of the planks off except the ends and middle. To get your arrangement place the larger cans in an odd triangle on your pallet and then add smaller ones to fill in the gaps. Add hook screws to the back of your pallet to secure them to your chain link fence or hook-and-eye screws to attach them to a wooden one. Water your plants and admire your work.I added bricks under my pallet to give it enough height to be flush with the top of the fence and to keep the base from rotting.
I also changed out some of my flowers that weren't doing well in this climate but stuck to the pink palette as I like how it contrasts with the blue planks.

Create a few patchwork pallets to cover your bare areas and you'll have a whole new landscape almost over night.
