There are many ways to make your house and lawn turn into a home. Every bit of careful touch you add will help your space feel more personal and inviting for your friends and family. As a landscape architect, one of my favorite ways to improve the look and feel of a home is through garden plants.

I love to encourage all of my clients to invest in some great garden plants when they are at work creating a lawn or renovating their lawn. I love garden plants for so many reasons, but the obvious reason is that they are beautiful. There is nothing better than spending time in a home and a yard that is filled with uniqueness and beauty. Planting a wide variety of garden plants is a great way to add much needed beauty to the outside of a home. Even the most beautiful homes can look mediocre when there isn’t a great lawn and garden to accompany them.

Another reason I encourage my clients to invest in garden plants for their home is so that they will have a reason to get outside and work the land with their hands. I believe that people take much more pride in land that they have to work to cultivate. Our culture has lost something dear and precious since we stopped being a farming culture, and planting even the most simple arrangement of garden plants can be a great way to feel the pride of working the land again. Having to spend time working with garden plants is also an easy and fun way to get outside and get some exercise. Far too many people are stuck in their homes watching television or reading, and just getting outside to tend garden plants can be a great way for them to get more active.

If you’re looking to add garden plants to your lawn, then I’d suggest you grab a couple of easy to understand books on the topic and soak up all the knowledge you can about how to properly plant garden plants in your lawn. There is much to be learned about gardening, and taking time to get even the most basic knowledge will help you considerably when you are trying to plant the best garden plants for you.

Get to a local gardening shop and see what garden plants will go great in your lawn. And then begin the fun work of planting them and tending to their growth.

Tips For Preventing Lawn Mower Problems

Tips For Preventing Lawn Mower Problems

If your lawn mower is what’s choking instead of your weeds, you have lots of company. More than 63 million lawn mowers are revving up for lawn season, and many will need a little TLC. Experts advise that an hour or two of maintenance a year can make a big difference in how well your equipment operates and how long it will ultimately last.

For a trouble-free season of lawn care, here are some tips from the experts at small-engine maker Briggs & Stratton Corporation on how to maintain your lawn care equipment so it will start easily and run trouble-free:

Use a fuel preservative. Gasoline goes stale in about 30 days, making your mower or other outdoor power equipment difficult to start. The FreshStart gas cap is a convenient way to keep fuel fresh for six months. The cap, which replaces the equipment’s original gas cap, contains a replaceable cartridge of concentrated fuel preservative that drips into the fuel tank.

Check and change your oil. Check your mower’s oil level regularly and change the oil after 25 hours of operation under average mowing conditions. Use a 100 percent synthetic oil, which is made for use in all engines, or use an SAE 30 detergent oil for your mower-look for the bottle that says “Lawn Mower Oil” and you can’t go wrong.

Add oil to new equipment. When you purchase a new mower or another piece of power equipment, be sure to check the oil before you run it for the first time-new equipment is often shipped without oil. Running power equipment without oil will damage the engine.

Tune up your lawn mower once a year. It takes about 30 minutes, and you can purchase convenient Tune-Up Kits that contain everything you need: oil, spark plug, filter(s) and fuel preservative.
