    In the early periods of the Twentieth century, the new look of modern architecture began in Europe and the trend was spread to the other parts of the world, at a later stage. Basically speaking, modern architecture is only functional and not decorative. The modern architecture specifies structural mass buildings and ensures ordered surroundings.

    It is true that garden planning has not subjected to modern style, when compared to the changes and styles developed in respect of architecture of buildings. This is because, that traditional material and practises have not changed much as far as gardening is concerned. Garden is not functionally practical, but of decorative in nature. Since garden is nothing but a natural field, containing natural elements, such as plants, flowers, etc. it is not possible to follow the characteristic of modern architecture.

    Modern Designing of the Garden

    During these modern days, plants are arranged in a garden in new forms to suit the scales and proportions of the newly constructed buildings of the modern era. People like to provide space in a garden, which could be used to suit our social habits that are changing often. The main idea of modern gardening technology is that, it is designed to be an extension of home, to be utilised as a place of comfort for the entire family, rather than a museum of plants. The additive parts of the modern garden are furniture, swimming pool, shelters, lighting arrangements and other decorations.

    Naturally, house owners will be pleased to have peaceful surroundings, as a place for relaxation, when they are tired of strenuous work, during the whole day. Most of the people make their own garden developing, except for some hard work like grass cutting and other skilled works. If you do not take up the gardening as your hobby, you will have only fewer varieties of plants or flowers. Moreover you should be careful about the utilisation of the garden space to picture an appreciable design.

    Since you are concerned with your privacy and if there is only a little space in your garden, you usually create screens of closely woven lattice, opaque plastics and broad boards of plywood, to separate your garden from the neighbouring surroundings. The high raised walls built with stones or planting of high rise trees along the boundary is too expensive for a small garden.

    Plants in unusual form are planted in front of the flat surfaces to cast changing shadows and in fact this effect is given by lattice or louvers.

    A cultivator is needed to prepare a lawn for plantation work. This tool breaks up the soil and aerates the ground. It turns up the layer of soil and prepare for seeding and plantation.

    Availability of different garden tillers can confuse anyone especially one, who is buying his first equipment. It is certain that you won’t buy the tool that is too big for your lawn but still there are so many factors to be considered that you might take some time in choosing an appropriate cultivator.

    First you have to make a choice between an electric device and a fuel driven tool. Electric cultivator looks good but it has a tailing wire that might make it difficulties like you have to manage the wire when moving the tool so that the wire doesn’t come in to contact with the spinning blade. On the other hand, a fuel driven device is just perfect as it is a compact tool. You fill fuel tank and in this way make it ready for use.

    A cultivator is needed to prepare a lawn for plantation work. This tool breaks up the soil and aerates the ground. It turns up the layer of soil and prepare for seeding and plantation. Every gardener needs a cultivator and for this reason this tool is in great demand. Manufacturers of gardening equipments have launched a wide range of garden tillers in the market. Since there are a number of cultivators available, you can make a choice or find one that suits to your needs most.

    Electric garden tillers are popular among homeowners but these equipments are useful for small jobs, where you need to prepare a portion of the lawn. But if there is a farm then you certainly need a petrol driven device because you will need a large electric wire to move an electric cultivator on a large ground.

    Petrol cultivators have one advantage that is they are heavy-duty tools. Petrol driven motor is much better than an electric device because petrol can generate more power than its electric counterpart. Buy a handheld petrol tiller and have peace of mind. You can use this tool as and when required without caring for electric supply.

    Look for the variety of petrol garden tillers available and choose one that suits to your needs most. Here you might need determining your needs first. You should know how much area of the lawn you need aerating and how many times will you need tiller. You don’t need a heavy-duty tool, if there isn’t much work to do in the lawn. You can buy a convenient petrol tiller for small jobs.

    Starting with the disclaimer that this is a purely secular set of observations having nothing to do with religion, I would like to bypass all the theological controversy and bigoted opinions of those who should know better with the assertion that something actually ‘did go wrong’ within the human psyche, and this schism, which undeniably destroyed a pre-existing harmonious and joyous relationship with nature, happened precisely with the concurrence of agriculture.

    And it is agriculture I would like to focus the blame on, for if money is the root of all evil, then agriculture is the root of all money. It is true, is it not, that agriculture is the harbinger of civilization? Therefore, whatever civilization has bequeathed to us ultimately can be found in the implementation of agriculture. That is to say that literally- language, the mastery of fire, tool making, just to name a few technologies- have only a small role in the development and rise of civilization. On the other hand, civilization would be impossible without agriculture. (By the way, ‘civilization’ by its root roughly just means ‘urbanization’.)

    When heard, the word civilization is generally received with a positive connotation, but in fact civilization is also directly responsible for the greatest man-made horrors upon this earth that we have ever seen. It is responsible for mega wars, genocide, and perhaps most tragically, thousands of years of mass slavery.

    Another facet that one might explore about agriculture is that while it tends to feed masses of humans with a monotonous diet of food of dubious nutritious value, at the same time it destroys nature (or the garden if one prefers). But most importantly the advent of agriculture soon resulted in societies where 80 to 90 percent of the population became slaves, 10 percent warriors, a tiny percent scholars and architects, and the tiniest fraction the owners and rulers. That it is a fact of history but my question is: have things really changed?
