HOW TO ACHIEVE THE PERFECT LAWN FOR YOUR GARDEN

A gardener knows that a lawn is an important addition to any garden. Its purpose is to not only be an accessory, but also to be able to improve the quality of the soil for your plants.

There are a lot of different lawns, but there's no such thing as the "perfect lawn". Each kind has its own advantages and disadvantages. Whether your objectives are to have a plain lawn, plant new ones or to cover disturbing patches, here are some of the tips and tricks for you to achieve the right lawn for your garden:

Identifying Garden Soil

This is one of the requirements needed before deciding the seed that you should get. It is important to test your soil first to an expert, so that you may know what is compatible for your garden.

Warm or Cool?

It is important to also consider the climate of the place that you are living in. Make sure to choose the right grass seed that can be able to tolerate with the weather changes of your area. Each seed reacts differently to temperature and other environmental factors. Thus, you have to know which type is ideal for you and your garden in accordance with the weather condition of your place.

Some examples of the lawn seeds that you should get are:

  • Kentucky Blue Grass - a popular cool season seed that can maintain its growing condition without damaging its fine quality
  • Augustine grass - this seed is ideal for some humid places as it has heat resistant abilities but does not go well with cool temperature
  • Bermuda Grass - it is a low maintenance type of grass because it can handle droughts well, but placing it in shady areas can damage it

Maintenance

Grasses need to be mown regularly in order to keep it clean and easy to walk to. You can use your regulation mower or even some top of the line zero turn mowers. A well-maintained lawn can also reflect the health of your garden in general.

There are some types of grass that are high maintenance, and require your full attention and time. However, if you're the kind of person that has no time in their hands, there are grasses that are low maintenance as well.

Fertilizing your lawn is also an important task to do to maintain the rich nutrients of the grass. Research well on the kinds of fertilizer you need. You can stick with the more organic kind or the one packed on boosting the potential of the grass.

THE DIFFERENT KINDS OF MOODS OF FLOWERS

Decorating and setting the right ambiance in any room is important to keep a certain feeling of delight or calmness, depending on which you prefer.

For each room of your house, you can set any mood that you want. Usually, homeowners and designers choose casual ambiance for common rooms like the living room or the dining room. However, the bedroom is a different thing. You are free to show your personality in your bedroom-s interior design. After all, it-s your personal space.

One of the things that could greatly affect the ambiance of your bedroom is the flower that you choose to display in them. To help you in choosing the flowers to put in your bedroom vase, here-s a short guide.

Lavender

This plant is essentially used as oil, but when placed in a bedroom, it gives that amazing smell that can spread throughout the space. Once you have laid down on your quality firm mattress, not only does it come with a quality scent, but it can help you sleep as well. The flower can reduce the level of stress, slow down heart rate and lower your blood pressure.

Geranium

Geranium is an herbaceous plant that has variegated leaves. It is often shown to grow in the containers of the garden. However, it can perfectly complement any bedroom with a white wall. It also has the advantage of becoming a mosquito repellant.

Plumeria

This kind of flower has a 2-4 inch colorful leaf you can use to decorate your room and bring it to life. Its vibrant color makes it one of the most iconic flowers in Hawaii.

Chamomile

It is a flower that blooms in all seasons, and it is a beautiful petite plant. The scent of this plant is sweet. Chamomile also creates that relaxed atmosphere, which can help in getting people to sleep.

Peace Lily

This flower has lush foliage, and it can be easily maintained. It goes well in dark places as it does not need to be always exposed to the sun. The moisture it brings out can increase the humidity of the room. Peace Lily can also prevent toxic air from contaminating your bedroom.

A FULL BLOOM IN THE LIVING ROOM

It-s always great to be able to invite guests over for a small gathering or just to hang out in your home. The problem is that all of us always want to impress guests by presenting a decent, if not marvelous, living room. Thus, we get stressed.

This year, try going natural and use flowers as your living room decors. Flowers give that warm and inviting feeling which guests will surely love. Here are some of the flowers recommended to impress the guests:

Gerbera Daisies

This type of flower can create a cheerful and joyous atmosphere because of its colorful appearance. It can easily complement any decors, too. Thus, you-ll have a little problem positioning it.

Clivia

An exotic flower that blooms every February or March, Clivia-s petals are somewhat orange, red, yellow, or a mixture of all. It-s easy for people to be stunned by its beauty. This flower can also tolerate cool or dry conditions of a room. Many people who buy a value for money recliner will also spend a little more to make the room smell nice too.

Orchid

This luxurious flower has a beautifully sculptured body that can help define rarity and refinement in any living room. In Feng Shui, this plant is said to have a healing energy, which may be able to bring good luck towards the home.

African Violet

This plant is easy to maintain and can bloom pretty flowers anytime. It comes in different varieties of colors, so you can mix and match these flowers with others. It will definitely complement the ambiance of your home and welcome your guests with a wonderful smell.
