Lawn Repair Products Review

Scotts EZ Seed vs Canada Green Velocity Patch Plus

It has been a full 10 days now since we first applied two different lawn repair products, Scotts EZ Seed and Canada Green Velocity Patch Plus, on two different areas of our lawn. We had both a shady area along our east wall as well as a sunny area out in our south facing back yard which needed repair. So, 10 days ago I applied these two lawn repair products in side by side comparisons. Both lawn repair products have compelling TV commercials. I was curious. Here is what the south … [Read more...]

Remember to Fertilize the Shrubs and Bushes

Evergreen and Shrub Fertilizer Spikes

A few days ago I wrote about the first fertilizing of our lawn this year. Don't forget to  fertilize your shrubs, bushes, evergreens and trees as well ... but with their own food. Last spring I wrote an article titled Don't Forget To Feed Your Trees, which my day time boss mentioned to me that he had read and actually used that tip. This article is not about fertilizing the same tree, well, because we no longer have it. Why the tree is no longer our property is for a discussion or two … [Read more...]

Scotts Turf Builder Fertilizer from Home Depot

We were fortunate to receive some gift cards ourselves from The Home Depot to help us with our spring lawn and garden clean up this year. So, with us focusing a little more than in prior years on conservation of our money, we decided to discontinue the lawn service we had used during the past two years and see if we could take care of our lawn ourselves. I know, I know....how hard can it be? Well, it shouldn't be that hard, right? And that's the point. This is no time to be spending money … [Read more...]

Earlier we started a series of articles on our garden makeover, on of the projects listed on our Projects Listing page. And, as is usual for me, I ordered too much triple mix soil for the garden, most important because I wanted organic living soil for my garden also.  But, then again, the girl at the order desk said I would need 4 cubic … [Read more...]
