Newberry, South Carolinas Wells Japanese Garden

  • Posted on June 14, 2017 at 5:29 pm

The midlands of South Carolina would seem to be an unusual place to find a Japanese Garden. The town of Newberry has just such a hidden gem in the Wells Japanese Garden. The garden was once privately owned by the Wells family, but was donated to the city in 1970 and is now a Newberry city park.
The garden was designed in 1930 by W. Fulmer Wells. The young Newberry resident had been studying architecture in California. Fulmer was influenced by the design of the Japanese Tea Garden that he had visited at San Franciscos Golden Gate Park. The building of the garden was carried out by his father, Henry B. Wells, Sr. The small, triangular shaped garden was originally part of a larger residential property containing the Wells family home.

The Wells Japanese Garden has an exotic Asian character. The garden features many of the design elements that would typically be found in a traditional Japanese Garden. The entrance to the garden is through a Torii Gate, a traditional Japanese style gate often found at temple entrances. Torii literally means where birds reside. Most wooden Torii are painted red, as is the one in the Wells garden. A small creek flows through the garden, and a stone Moon Bridge crosses the creek. The half circle of this style of arched bridge is meant to reflect in the water below, creating a full circle between the bridge and its reflection. The garden also has two small ponds. A walking path leads to another ornamental structure, a Japanese Tea House, or Japanese style gazebo. A bench there provides a place for quiet reflection. The posts used in the Tea House were originally part of the historic Newberry Opera House, before its renovation in 1930. The garden also has a Japanese stone temple lantern, another design element typically found in Japanese gardens.

The garden contains both native and exotic plants. Visitors will find water lilies, lotus, Japanese iris, crepe myrtles, cypress, and dogwood trees among the garden plants. The Newberry Council of Garden Clubs maintains the garden as one of their on-going restoration projects. The Wells Japanese Garden is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Wells Japanese Garden is located on Lindsay Street in downtown Newberry, behind the Newberry City Hall. It is open from 7am-7pm. There are no restroom facilities in the garden. Visitors to Newberry should take time for a quiet stroll through this charming little garden oasis.

Garden Design Software – The Pros And Cons Of Using One

  • Posted on June 14, 2017 at 3:59 pm

Buying software programs to design your garden for you can be a costly mistake if you choose the wrong thing for your needs. To begin with, let’s take a look at your needs and expectations of any garden design software you may need to purchase.

The first mistake a lot of people make is to think that garden design software will do the design for them. This is simply not the case. Whilst a lot of design software will have some ready-made designs that you can adjust, unless you know the principles of designing your garden, it is very difficult to achieve good results.

It’s a bit like someone giving you the components to a super fast car engine. If you don’t know anything about mechanics, the chances of you producing an engine that really works and delivers what you want it to are very slim. The same is true to designing a garden. Unless you know how it works, all the templates in the world cannot help you achieve the results you want.

Learning the seven most important garden design principles first will enable you to use garden designing software as the tool that it was designed to be.

Pros of Garden Design Software

No drawing required. You can produce a color plan, 3-D views and the best part is it is very easy to make changes.

Cons

It can be time-consuming to learn how to use the software before you even start the design. You are limited to using the materials in the template chooser. The program doesn’t design a garden for you!

Best Option for Planning Your Garden

The best of both worlds would be to do a rough draft of your ideas on paper and then once you think you have a design you like, use a garden design software to draw up a proper plan and give you a 3D view of it.

One thing that is critical to success, though, is the initial survey. Guessing the size and shape of your garden is the worst mistake you can make. You may produce a superb design, but unless it fits, it will be a complete waste of your time.

In a good design, everything links together and functions as one whole entity. So if one part has to change, it has a knock-on effect to everything else in the garden. It’s a bit like having jigsaw pieces that don’t quite fit – it will never work!

Before you buy any software to help you design your garden I would strongly recommend that you do two things. Firstly, learn the principles of garden design; without them you’re wasting your time. Secondly, practice on free software like Google sketch up, to see if you like using a computer to help you design.

Artificial Grass For Dog Kennels And Pet Businesses

  • Posted on June 14, 2017 at 2:45 pm

One of artificial grass’ primary benefits is the fact that it is dog and pet-friendly. With such a product that pets spend so much time on, it must have specific criteria to be suitable. A great thing about artificial grass for dogs and pets is that it is nontoxic. Because of its many benefits, synthetic grass is used for dog kennels, pet hotels, dog runs, and other pet-friendly environments and businesses. Artificial grass proves to be a comfortable and suitable alternative to regular grass for yards and such areas with pets.

Artificial grass is made from polyethylene fibers, which are nontoxic for animals and pets. These fibers both look and feel comparable to real grass, ensuring that it is comfortable for dogs and pets alike. Aside from comfort, the durability of synthetic grass is comparable to none. This is why kennels and hotels are supplied with such a surface. From digging to pouncing and playing, synthetic grass can withstand rough play, even from the larger and rougher dog breeds. The complex yarn and weaving composition makes it sturdy to hold up to performance and play. For businesses and homes with more than one dog, this can be very beneficial. A long 10-year warrantee usually backs synthetic grass’ durability, further proving its aptitude.

For kennels and pet hotels, it is important to maintain the grounds at all times. Such businesses contain high traffic from a variety of pets. This requires keeping the facilities as clean and sanitary as possible. After dog walks and playtime, artificial grass allows these facilities to keep mess and dirt to a minimum. This is because synthetic grass does not have any soil or dirt content whatsoever. With the lack of dirt, you can kiss mud and grass stains goodbye. No longer do paw prints and residue have to be an issue with artificial grass. Even in wet or rainy areas, there is no risk of mud or dirt.

When artificial grass comes into contact with liquid, its state-of-the-art drainage system allows it to permeate through easily and effectively. Pet waste and urine is thus simple to get rid of, as the grass’ permeability prevents it from gathering or producing bacteria within the grass itself. Kennels and pet hotels love this because clean up is very simple. Pet odors are kept to a minimum with the drainage system. A hose can also be used to clean off solid waste. Even after years of coming into contact with pet waste, the materials used to engineer synthetic grass allow it to withstand such contact over and over again. For pet businesses, another concern may be the effects of appearance after coming into contact with pet waste so frequently. Artificial grass is great because it does not erode or change color drastically. Overall, dog kennels, hotels, and other pet businesses look to artificial grass as a durable, nontoxic, and easily maintainable alternative to regular grass. It is clear that artificial grass for pets is an innovative and practical solution for any pet business.

Things You Should Know About Film And Digital Photography

  • Posted on June 14, 2017 at 12:13 pm

Our day and age has introduced the digital camera and this is what most people are now using instead of the cameras with film. Inspite of this advancement there are still some aficionados of film photography. Both types has positive things about them. Read on to learn about the differences of these two.

In digital photography you will be able to edit your photos using a software. You have the freedom to edit, add touches and design photos with this kind of computer program. Our generation is experiencing a deluge of free software downloads even for photo editing.

There is no doubt that digital photography creates vivid and clear pictures in an instant. The view button is just a click away and you have access to the image captured a few seconds ago. However, you must see to it that you are using a high quality ink and paper when you produce copies of digital photos.

Film photography is so different from digital photography since you have to wait for the photos to get developed. Film photography has to undergo intensive photochemical processes in order to create pictures. There is also no problem about pixilation in film cameras and in printing.

For film photography you will need to use the process of film restoration if you want to have copies for later use. A film is actually a series of negatives which contains the images captured by the photographer. The film is the storage area of the captured images taken by the photographer in a process called photocopying. This simply refers to another demanding process of printing photos.

Those are the differences between film and digital photography. There is a use and advantage for each type. But it is up to the photographer on what type of photography he will like to use to create photos since both of these produce quality pictures.
