Home & Garden Blog

As a homeowner, you might find yourself taking more pride in your home than you have ever done in the past. Of course, to make sure that your lawn is looking as good as it can, you will have to make use of a variety of techniques. To help make sure that you are getting started on the right foot, you will want to review the following tips.

Purchase Weed Control Supplies

Battling weeds can be a tiresome chore, especially if you are simply trying to control the situation by manually pulling all of the weeds by hand. Not only is this extremely time consuming, but you could find that your back and knees will suffer because of all that work. Instead of putting yourself through that, you will want to simply purchase some weed control supplies. One of the first types of weed control supplies that you will want to consider purchasing would be a roll of weed barrier for all of your flower beds. Remove any mulch or stone that is presently in place, roll out the weed barrier paper or fabric, and then cover it up with the mulch or stone that you first removed from the flower bed. There are also a lot of sprays that you can use throughout your lawn in order to limit the growth of weeds. This way, the only thing that will be growing for your lawn mower to cut will be actual grass. It will make the lawn look a lot cleaner and healthier.

Water It Without Overdoing It

You will want to make sure that your lawn is getting plenty of water, without drowning it of course. Therefore, if you live in a region that does not get a lot of rainfall, you will want to use the garden hose to water your lawn a few times a week. If that takes up too much time for you, you can always call to have a professional install a sprinkler system. Then you will simply have to set the sprinkler system so it waters your lawn on a schedule. You can turn it off if you are experiencing some storms, as this will ensure that you are not drowning the grass and wasting water.

With just those two tips in mind, you should find that you are well on your way to having a fantastic looking lawn that your neighbors will surely be envious of.

Stepping into Greenhouse Gardening

My name is Michelle Landon. When I was a little girl, I loved helping my mother and grandmother in the garden. My passion for gardening grew, and in my adult years, it became my number one hobby. I have lived in apartments and mastered the art of having container gardens. I now have over an acre of land and can grow just about anything. My dream was to one day have a greenhouse and be able to grow all the flowers my heart desired. Six years ago I got my first small greenhouse and was able to start bringing my gardening dream to fruition. Today I have two greenhouses and working in them is even better than I imagined. I would like to share my greenhouse gardening experiences with you.
