This article provides some tips and tricks to know when landscaping your yard, beginning with the most basic element, grass. Many people make the mistake of watering their lawns too often. Experts recommend watering deeply two or three times a week between 3:00-8:00 a.m., because water during the day is lost to evaporation and does not sink well into the soil; fertilizing your grass when cutting it, keeping the height between two and three inches; and possibly adding some color or height with plants or trees. To help save some money, experts recommend knowing what color and intended purpose you want for your yard’s shrubbery before heading to the nursery. Also, make sure to ask about which plants can withstand cold winter months or even cool summer months.

When planting in the ground, it is best to mix in some compost to enrich the soil. | Read More
