Love Your Lawn and Garden

Gardening and lawn care can be hard work.  There’s watering, mowing, weeding, planting, pruning, fertilizing—the list goes on.  None of these tasks are particularly easy, but the fruits of gardening and lawn care labor easily outweigh the time and effort spent.  What could be better than picking a lusciously ripe tomato from a vine that flourished through your own concerted effort?

Not only does gardening save money on the produce bill, a gardener is entitled to a sense of satisfaction that not everyone else can share.  Biting into produce grown organically at your house could not be more pleasing.  Freshly grown herbs and vegetables are far more flavorful than what you will find in the grocery store.  Not into veggies?  Grow strawberries, watermelons, or flowers.  Live flowers don’t wilt like cut flowers.  They stay beautiful month after month for your enjoyment.

A well-maintained lawn is also a delight.  Deep green grass soft enough to lie on and roll around in is a pleasure akin to none.  Fearlessly walking barefoot through the lawn without the slightest concern for thistles is liberating.

What if you don’t have a lawn or much of an area to grow?  It’s simple.  Flowers and herbs can easily be grown on a patio, or if you don’t have one, from a window basket.  No windows even?  Then it might be time to look for a new place to live.  Gardening is not limited to those who have acres to spare.  City dwellers can be gardeners too.  All you need is sunlight, water, and elbow grease.

If you don’t have time to plant your garden or care for your lawn, contacting a lawn care or gardening service is simple.  They would be more than willing to make your domestic dreams come true.  By contracting their services you will be able to enjoy a professionally maintained lawn and garden without having to lift a finger, except to open your wallet.

Do yourself a favor, step outside into the early summer air and plant something.  It doesn’t matter what, just do it.  You will be happy you did.

Is there a chart for how frequently to water your garden?

The watering frequency for your garden will obviously vary from region to region and from plant type to plant type. On average you should water your garden about 2 inches a week. If you water too low, your plants can suffer due to evaporation. Check The Old Famer's Almanac for more watering tips.
