Lanes ustelennyh linoleum never be weeds. This partly solves the problem of weeds and the beds themselves.

To linoleum does not slide after a rain, it is better to turn the back side up. And to avoid puddles and water retention, the track is better to do at a slight incline.

Before laying linoleum need to place in the path carefully leveled and compacted. Otherwise, after a while there will be holes and bumps in the track.

I know truckers who were doing the linoleum in the hole to left to rainwater.

Of long scraps of linoleum can make original flowerbed. It is on the basis of woven fence connected to a small oval. The shape and dimensions are limited only by your imagination.

The most common idea - to create a large wicker basket with flower garden inside. The handle can be made from a flexible branches and plastic pipe.

It is not necessary to worry about the air and water balance. Multiple openings in the weaving maintain a favorable environment for the growth and development of plants.

Incidentally, the same can be woven to make a complete fence around the flower beds or walkways. Get cheap and very practical.
