    I think these would be easier to keep clean as dust would collect on horizontal.

Get pH-smartSoil pH – the measure of the soil’s acidity or alkalinity – can influence how well plants grow.Soil that has a neutral pH (between 6.5 to 7) is best. The more acidic (lower pH) or the more alkaline (higher pH) the soil gets, the harder it is for plants to access nutrients, which can lead to poor growth. You can test the pH level of your soil with a simple test kit from your local garden centre or hardware store. Measure multiple spots in the garden and apply products to change the pH. With acidic soil (pH less than 6.5), for example, you can apply lime to raise the soil pH. For alkaline soil (pH greater than 7), you can apply a soil acidifier.

Architectural shades: Overhanging eaves and verandahs that are part of the architecture of a home are an effective way to reduce heat and sunlight. As the sun is lower in winter, light and warmth will still reach beneath the shade structure.

PREPARATIONSTEP 3: Do your prepGood preparation is vital to the success of new lawns whether you’re sowing seed, planting grass plugs or laying turf. Start well before it’s time to sow or plant, digging or cultivating the soil with a rotary hoe to about 15cm deep so that it creates the crumbly soil that grass likes. Next remove any stones and weeds. New weeds will keep popping up, so continue weeding for at least three weeks to get rid of the deep-rooted types such as dock and dandelion.
