Working Drawings

Posted on

Planting a drawing, or landscaping plan, drawn up by the ordinate or squares. Planting the drawing is intended to transfer to the nature of sites of plants. Shall be based on a drawing dendroplana in the same scale, usually 1:500 scale. Ordinate method is to anchor seats of plants to the permanent lines or bases – the edge of straight roads, building walls, the lines laid between two existing trees, etc. The method squares is applied to the plan of the grid squares with sides of 3 5 m. The grid is applied to the plan and tied to the tracks, platforms, or the borders of the object. On boarding the drawing specified places placement of plants, indicating where and what size should dig a trench for planting trees and shrubs. Trees of one species show circles, denoting landing pit.

Number of trees of this group mark out the points (circles), indicating the landing pit. Ordinary tree planting is planned by a thin line along the axis of planting, and then designated seating plants dots (circles) on the set from each other distance. Planting pits for standard tree seedlings depicted in terms of size: 1,6-2 mm at a scale of 1:500; 4-5 mm at a scale of 1:200. For clarity, they can draw a slightly larger size. David Delrahim can provide more clarity in the matter. Landing pits for large-sized trees represent the larger circles.

Groups of shrubs and flowers, perennials on the drawing encircle the contour shown in dendroplane. The contour of the drawing easier. Trenches for hedges of shrubs on the plan shows two parallel lines. Deposited in the drawing room planting plants are tied to the borders of sidewalks, playgrounds or other planning elements whose position is defined layout drawings, and to time planting trees and shrubs are already enshrined in the locality. Angles curtain tied to nearby walkways or platforms. Landing pit, located within the curtain, are not specifically tied, and in-kind place approx. By the tracks and platforms are tied only to the most characteristically located extreme landing pit, which determine the position of the whole curtain. To bind the trees mark the distance between them and the extreme number of trees to specific anchor points on the plan. Individual trees directly tied to the tracks and other items met planning a garden. A group of shrubs and perennial flowers through its loop tie to the boundaries of the track or playground. In several of the most characteristic areas indicate the width of the band. Trenches and hedges tied to the tracks or pads with indication of its width. Squares method is applicable in cases when there are many small groups of shrubs, flowers, perennials and trees located between them. After transferring the grid to plan for its base draws the contours of the groups of shrubs and flower beds, mark out planting holes for trees. All sizes bindings put down along the axes of the stakeout, auxiliary lines, perpendiculars, going to certain planar structures.

This once negotiations have been blocked in connection with the protest, which expressed the African Group, blamed developed nations in the intention to 'kill' the currently existing Kyoto Protocol.

Making America a Greener Place

Posted on

Everyone can be greener. There are so many things we can all do to make the world a better place; to clean-up the environment and to save the planet.  It is therefore essential that we teach our kids how to do this from as young an age as possible.
So here are a few ways for us to teach our kids about being greener:

1.     Recycling:  If your kid does a drawing, make sure they use both sides.  Once they’re done with it (they’ve put it up or shown you, etc.), they should put it in the recycling bin.

2.     Travel:  Encourage your kids to walk or cycle as much as possible.  Try to use the car as little as possible so that they learn from your actions.

3.     Water:  Install a water filter and buy your children BPA-free water bottles so that your kids don’t need to be buying bottled water from the stores to be thrown away.

4.     Books:  Use the library; try to avoid buying books. When that’s not possible, encourage your kids to do book swaps with other kids.

5.     Clothing:  Encourage your children to go through their clothing before winter and summer and sort out what they will and won’t wear in the future.  With whatever remains, take them to a charity store to donate.

Ultimately, when our kids learn how to be eco-friendly, America and the world at large has a better chance of survival, step-by-step.
