The proper design of the tree trunk circles is one of the options for landscape design in the garden, and does not require a lot of time, effort and money.
The trunk circle is the nutritional area occupied by the root system of a plant located in the crown projection. When planting seedlings in a permanent place, the diameter of the planting pit is considered as a trunk circle, but in the process of plant growth, the size of the trunk circle increases. Most often, the root system of the culture extends over a considerable distance, so you need to draw or decorate the trunk circle around the trunk correctly.
Care for the near-trunk zone should be carried out in accordance with the following recommendations:
Throughout the entire period of active vegetation, garden plantings should be fed with fertilizers. The main fertilizer dressing is used, as well as fertilizing the soil with liquid or dry fertilizers, and the foliar version of fertilizing. Organic and mineral fertilizers are used for the main refueling in spring and autumn. About 6-8 kg of organic matter in the form of manure or peat compost, as well as 60-70 g of superphosphate, 25-30 g of ammonium nitrate and 15-20 g of potassium chloride or potassium salt are applied per square meter of the near-stem zone.
For closing dry fertilizers, forks or choppers are used. At the stage of active growth processes, in order to increase productivity and improve winter hardiness, high-grade complex fertilizers are used. In preparation for winter, preference should be given to wood ash, superphosphate and potassium chloride.
In the conditions of home gardening, several options for soil registration around the trunks of fruit and berry trees are used, including creating a flower garden or decorative mulching with special materials.
The main goal of mulching, from the point of view of agricultural technology, is to improve soil characteristics and preserve moisture by reducing its evaporation. Also, decorative mulching allows you to:
Most often, mulching with painted loose materials in the form of colored sawdust and bark or wood chips is used. The use of decorative pebbles gives a good result. The layer should not exceed 10 cm. A layer of agril, lutrasil, spunbond or other permeable materials is lined with loose decorative mulching material, due to which irrigation measures should be reduced by about a third.
Usually, in round-trunk circles, a round or polygonal flower bed is formed, on which many shade-tolerant flowering ornamental crops quite successfully grow:
Goryanka, garden irises, phlox, and medunica can also be grown.
In small areas, in the area of trunks, preference is recommended to give decorative ground cover crops:
A little less often in near-stem circles, a very attractive and unpretentious clove grass is grown.
Very many experienced gardeners prefer to use tree trunks for sowing with herbs or green manure:
Thus, the near-trunk circle of fruit trees, filled with correctly selected sideral vegetation, practically does not need digging and cultivation, and also allows you to save the fertile layer of the earth.
To give the garden planting an original and stylish appearance, Recently, special decorative elements have been increasingly used:
Containers and baskets of flowers are quite popular, but not always suitable for decoration of plants with a superficial root system, which is due to the severity and reduced air flow to the roots.
Correctly created round or square bosquets look very attractive and neat. This design is continuous, reaching the trunk of the tree and is a kind of wide border, inside which the space is mulched by wood chips or pebbles.
The most optimal cultures for creating a low bosquet can be:
Western thuja, which is characterized by incredible shade tolerance and allows you to create dense hedges, is especially popular.
Before you start planting ornamental crops in the area around the trunks of garden plantings, you need to make sure that the tree does not have a surface location of the root system. The average depth of digging and loosening of soil should not exceed 10-12 cm. This depth is enough to prepare the landing holes for planting shade-tolerant perennials.
In the process of digging, complex fertilizers can be added for decorative-deciduous or plentifully flowering crops. Landings must be abundantly irrigated with water at room temperature. It is recommended to mulch between the flowers, which will allow for a long time to retain moisture and improve the survival rate of seedlings.
With the help of flowering, ground cover crops and natural materials, even empty areas under garden trees easily turn into very picturesque and attractive recreation areas. Spectacular and original, self-made compositions that frame the trunk circles allow you to decorate the garden space and fill it with special charm.
