As many people waits for spring to come, many of the people also are beginning to mow their lawn. Hence, towards the end of the midyear a year ago, homeowner's gas lawn mower had been running rather drowsily. Much like snow blowers, people found that there are two ways you can go when acquiring a lawn mower.
You can either go for the old school system with the gas-controlled mower or you can go the most present day course and buy an electric lawn mower. Before you go to a store and purchase whichever you think sounds best, try to take a second to consider the disadvantages of whichever type of mower you choose.

How to Save Money with Artificial Turf

In autumn, we see pollinators busy at work in flowers all over our area. But have you noticed that some flowers seem to attract many more pollinating insects than others? Recently, while wandering through a local garden center, it was obvious that certain flowers were magnets for honey bees, butterflies and other beneficial insects, while other flowers nearby were ignored.
Recently, we focused on three basic priorities for landscaping: develop a short list of plants, install significant numbers of each kind of plant, and select some unfamiliar plants that will fit into your plan.A complementary strategy emphasizes the strategic use of specimen plants, which are "unusual or impressive plants grown as a focus of interest in a garden.
What is this flower? We love it and let it reseed every year. We call it orange zinnia, but it gets easily 6 feet tall and we suspect it isn’t really a zinnia.

As the season winds down, you’ll have fewer chances to save seed.
Tree planting season is about to begin! While trees can be planted at any time of year, the best time to plant a new tree in the Bay Area is between late fall (October) and early spring (March). This is when mother nature provides us with the majority of rainfall and the soils in our area tend to stay moist. Planting at this time of year reduces the chances that the delicate root system of your new tree will dry out or the tree will become stressed from excessive moisture loss. If you have considered planting a new tree, now is the time to get outside and make it happen. Watch for additional tips on making sure your planting project is a complete success in the coming weeks.
