If a sports or parterre lawn with emerald greenery cannot be confused with a bright flower bed, then the Moorish one is in doubt. It is distinguished by a wide variety of not only herbs, but also flowers. So how do you tell a lawn from a flower bed?
The lawn is a mandatory attribute of landscape design when landscaping public parks, private gardens or other areas. It means a plot of land artificially sown with cereal grasses. Lawns, depending on the purpose and composition of the grass mixture, are of different types:
• special purpose.
A flower bed is a type of flower garden that has regular geometric shapes. To achieve uniformity and clarity of lines in a flower bed, plants are planted in the form of seedlings or bulbs, and not seeds as on the lawn. Even a Moorish lawn is not a flower garden.
Any lawn requires regular mowing, only for Moorish it is permissible to do this only once a year. Parterre and sports lawns are trimmed 2-3 times a week to achieve an ideal carpet surface. Only dried inflorescences are removed from the flower bed.
The lawn is intended for recreation and outdoor games on its green field, because the plants in its composition are resistant to trampling. It is unlikely that you will be allowed to just walk through the flower bed, even without a ball - many flowers will not tolerate such interference.
A flower bed can be made on a lawn, not the other way around. For a better view, the flowerbed has some elevation above the lawn or the surface on which it is located. Most often, the flower bed has a decorative fence.
The best way to water your lawns is by sprinkling. Many flowers lose their attractiveness from this method, and as a result, the flower bed - decorativeness. Lawn care has its own characteristics, unlike flowers in a flower bed.
Compared to a flower bed, a lawn takes up large areas, even if it has strict geometric shapes. A parade flower bed can be significant in size only in palace and park ensembles.
