Start A Compost
Composting is great way to achieve two goals in one: reduce waste and improve the soil quality in your garden. If you’ve never composted before, take a look at this video on YouTube – HOW TO COMPOST
Plant Some Flowers
Add a pop of color to your yard by planting some perennials, annuals, or ornamental grasses. Here are some tips to successfully incorporate these additions into your landscaping:
STEP 1: Dig Holes – Dig a few holes the width and depth of the selected plants along the walkways and other landscape features.
STEP 2: Fertilize – Amend the soil as needed and add some fertilizer to support healthy blooms.
STEP 3: Plant Flowers – Plant the flowers in the ground. Gently remove the plants from the container and use two fingers to loosen the root ball before setting in the ground. Refill with dirt, and soak with water.
STEP 4: Fill in the Gaps – Cover the surrounding areas with dirt, and add mulch to help keep weeds at bay and retain moisture.
STEP 5 (Optional): Add Finishing Touches – To draw the eye toward the entryway of your home and add finishing touches, hang a wreath on the front door, and place a potted plant near steps.
Switch to Reusable
Disposable water bottles are convenient but also create a lot of waste. Make the switch to a reusable bottle and drink the filtered water from your home’s fridge, sink, etc. instead of buying bottled water. That will save you MONEY as well.
