Less Water with Better Gutters

The gutter repairs to my home have done a wonderful job of keeping the excess rain water away from my home. Before the repairs, the gutters had a few holes in them that would send the water dripping down in front of my home. While I would normally appreciate a little water in the areas near my plants, the excess water did nothing but make the ground soggy and some of the water began to cause discoloration on the bricks on the outside. It looked like someone ran a black and green marker across the bricks to create a moldy color gradient.

I had to pressure wash the bricks to get rid of the discoloration.

Grow Lights For Indoor Plants

Grow Lights For Indoor PlantsSunlight is one of the most essential elements required for plant growth. However, it is not possible to have abundant sunlight around the year. Also, there are places that receive little sunlight throughout the year. Even houseplants do not grow properly in the absence of direct sunlight. Rather, indoor plants that don’t need sunlight are rare to find. To ensure a normal and healthy growth of plants, it is a must that they receive a desired amount of light. Artificial lighting is one way of substituting the natural light. A special grow light for indoor plants can imitate the sunlight in terms of spectrum and intensity, thereby ensuring healthy growth of plants. Let us understand the various parameters of grow lights and their types.

 

Parameters and Requirements
Sunlight consists of a broad spectrum of colors, ranging from red to violet. Moreover, the intensity of these colors also differs a lot. All plants do not require same color and intensity of light for their growth. Plants absorb only the desired amount of sunlight from the available spectrum. Thus, while choosing grow lights, you should understand the specific light requirements of plants you wish to grow. Given below are a few parameters against which you need to evaluate the light requirement of plants.

Color
As mentioned above, sunlight is composed of broad color spectrum. Red and violet colors are required the most for the process of photosynthesis. Red color stimulates vegetative growth and flowering, whereas violet color is responsible for plant growth. Thus, violet is the most crucial light color for stocky seedlings and growing foliage. However, if the plants receive too much of any of these lights, it can affect their normal growth. For instance, too much of red light can make plant tall and spindly. Hence, it is a must that you know what is the right light color for your particular vegetation.

Intensity
The correct wattage of grow light bulb is equally important for promoting healthy growth of plants. Light intensity can be adjusted by choosing a correct wattage of bulb and placing the plant at right distance from the light source. For instance, begonias and African violets grow well when placed at about 12” from a 40W bulb, whereas non flowering plants like philodendrons can be placed at farther distance (about 36”). Some flowering plants like orchids need a very high intensity light for their growth.

Duration
Sunlight is not available throughout the day, all around the year. Thus, plants adjust their growth mechanism so that they can utilize the maximum amount of sunlight when available. For the rest of the time, plants can do without sunlight. Due to this predisposition, you cannot subject plants to continuous exposure to artificial light. You need to know the right duration of light to be provided to a particular plant species. Plants need about 8 to 18 hours of light, depending upon their individual requirements.

Types of Grow Lights
Incandescent lights which are the common source of home lighting can also be used as grow lights for indoor plants. These light sources have a good wavelength of red light but poor wavelength of blue light. Fluorescent lights are very cheap and give about 3 times of light for the same energy input as the incandescent light. You may choose cool light (blue, yellow, green) or warm light (red, orange), depending upon the individual requirement of your plant species. Full spectrum fluorescent lights are also available which have a perfect balance of cool and warm lights. High intensity discharge lamps are yet another type of grow light which are extremely expensive. They are mostly used for commercial vegetation by professional horticulturists. There are several types of high intensity discharge lamps available, varying in light color and intensity. Of course, some of the best methods of bringing light into your home for plants is natural light through skylights. Professionals like Orlando Group Roofing can make these significant alterations to your home if you are truly invested in bringing natural light and life into your home.

Different Types of Lawn Care Tools and Equipment

Lawn Care Tools and EquipmentAn ideal lawn should be a smooth, leveled, lush green carpet. When looking at it, your mind should feel like plunging right into it. Having a lawn does have many advantages; it can be a good place for kids to play, good for a weekend barbecue, or even for a quick morning tea.

The lawn doesn’t just need to be perfect, but happy too. A ‘happy lawn’ is quite a bizarre concept, you might think! But happy here refers to being properly cared for. Sun, water, and fertilizer is what makes a lawn happy. But always remember, excess or lack of any of these would ruin it. So be careful about proportion and quantity when watering or applying fertilizer.

Here is a list of some basic lawn maintenance tools and equipment required for both, planting and maintenance. In conclusion, refer to the tips on planting a new lawn.

Landscape Rake

Sometimes also referred to as leveling rakes, these are available either with wooden or stainless steel heads and long handles. Their main purpose is to level the soil prior to plantation, and for sowing seeds. The pointed ends create small burrows and facilitate better sowing. The rake can also be used with the head turned over to give a smoother finish to the patch of land.

Drop Spreader

It’s always better to use a spreader when sowing seeds or adding fertilizer to the ground, rather than using the hands. A drop spreader basically does the function of spreading seeds or fertilizer proportionately over the patch of land where it is hovered upon.

It requires the user to drop seeds or fertilizer into the plastic hopper (green basket-like structure in the illustration) and roll the spreader across the patch proposed for cultivation. When buying one, ensure that the hopper is sturdy with holes large enough for seeds to pass through. Also, the ground clearance should be ample to avoid obstructions of any kind, the wheels should be durable, and the handle should be at a comfortable height with proper grips.

Rain Barrel

All of us have surely seen a rain barrel and know about its use too. A traditional but very effective technique to give adequate water to the soil is by using a rain barrel/watering can. More so during plantation, when the soil needs to be watered, a rain barrel is the tool you are going to require.

A very basic but useful garden tool and a must-have. Don’t forget to check the capacity while buying one. If you find it difficult to lift heavy objects, buy a smaller one which you can lift comfortably.

Lawn Mower

When the grass grows too much and feels spiky, it’s time to mow it. Lawn mowers have become very popular among hobbyists, especially the fuel/electric-powered ones. The traditional push-me lawnmower also does the job, but the level of human effort is too high. Go in for an electric-powered one, as it is cheaper to maintain, and the emission level is low, which makes it more eco-friendly. A costlier option is a ride-on lawnmower, which is necessary for bigger lawns, where pushing the mower isn’t really a feasible option.

Mowing the lawn would make it softer and less spiky. When using a lawn mower, always read its manual and make sure you take all the necessary precautions to avoid accidents.

String Trimmer

This is a very essential tool when it comes to trimming grass which the mower is unable to reach, especially areas around fences, walls, walkways, tight-corners, and the like. The machine uses a nylon string which rotates at very high speeds to cut the blades of grass. Always buy a string trimmer of a recognized brand, such as Remington or Bosch.

Leaf Rake

Leaf rakes are used to scrape dead stalks, moss, and other material on a lawn, which is called thatch. A leaf rake should be forcefully scratched across the whole patch of lawn in both horizontal and vertical directions.

These rakes can also be used to get rid of leaves in the lawn during fall, and are quite easily available, besides being very cheap.

Besom

With looks similar to that of a witch’s broom, besoms are an effective alternative to stiff brooms. This is because, they are made up of wiry brushwood, which really proves useful when sweeping leaves and removing grass clippings after trimming/mowing. Besoms don’t need to be bought, and can easily be made at home; tie plenty of birch twigs and straw to a long staff using string, and your besom is ready to use.

Leaf Blower

If you want to clear away leaves after fall without breaking a sweat, a leaf blower is the best option, even better than a besom or a leaf rake. It’s always advised to look after your health and comfort first, and then indulge in your hobby. Leaf blowers can accomplish a lot of tasks, including blowing leaves into piles, cleaning the patio and walkway, and also getting rid of clippings after mowing. A small hand-held blower for a small garden is perfect; they can be either gasoline-powered or electric ones, the latter being a better option any day.

Turfing Iron

This is a tool used to remove turf from the lawn, and slice underneath, severing the grass roots.

Half-Moon Edger

A half-moon edger is a sharp tool used to make crisp edges or clean cuts on the turf. Edgers are used to cut lines where the lawn meets a walkway and flower beds.

Broom

A stiff bristled broom is the most basic gardening tool. It is prominently used for brushing top-dressing into the holes created by aeration. It is also used as a utility tool to clean walkways, clear off dirt or debris, and keep the garden neat.

Sprayer

A sprayer is typically used to spray pesticides or herbicides. A herbicide is a chemical used to kill unwanted plants and vegetation. Two types of sprayers are available in stores; one being a backpack style sprayer, and the other a canister sprayer (the one shown in the illustration). Any of the two can be bought, as both serve the same purpose without too much distinction between them. For a small garden, a 2 – 3 gallon canister sprayer is recommended.

Garden Cart

A cart which hauls everything from lawn tools, to fertilizer, to lawn waste. Another piece of must-have garden utility equipment.

Sprinkler

Sprinklers are an add-on to basic garden equipment. They are meant to save human effort, and are ideal for bigger lawns, though small lawn-owners could install a couple of these too. Sprinklers proportionally sprinkle water all over the lawn at regular intervals, so you don’t have to worry about watering the grass everyday.

Equipment Organizer

This is the most important tool. When it comes to so many gardening tools, finding them in one place is really necessary. A tool/equipment organizer does this for you. It keeps all the important tools together, like the broom, rake, string trimmer, edger, shovel, etc.

Tips to Plant a New Lawn

When planting a new lawn, clear the proposed area off weeds, and make sure that the pH of the soil is appropriate for a healthy lawn.

Till the land to aerate the soil and soften it.
Mixing loam and compost proportionately all over the soil would enrich its quality, and provide essential nutrients for a healthy lawn.
For soil which is acidic, agricultural experts usually recommend the use of lime during sowing.
Tilling and adding compost makes the soil richer, which could allow more weeds to sprout. Water the tilled land for about two weeks with a rain barrel before sowing the seeds. Wait for the weeds to sprout, so you can get rid of them.

Front Yard Landscaping Ideas

Front Yard Landscaping Front yards are very important, because first impressions are formed by what people see, even when they are only passing by. This is determined by the location, size, and other design aspects of the house and what the owner wishes to emphasize. There are many different things that are available to the designer, color, along with size and shape of plants and trees, as well as texture of leaves. One can use contrast or other effects that use several different plants and trees.
This is usually created by color or plant size or both to bring the eye to an entrance way or other area of a house or yard. It can be beautifully created by two shrubs of one or different colors and then in the center a shrub of a third possibly brighter color.
What Else Is Important
The aspects of landscape design can be mixed and used together to create an impressive front yard. Large shrubs, all with the same color, size, and texture can be used as a backdrop for a small colorful garden, that is otherwise surrounded by colorful rocks that have either a complementary or contrasting color scheme.
Color
The main color differences are warm colors (red, orange, and yellow), used to attract attention either to something, an address for example, or away from a plain-colored wall.
There are also cool colors (blues, and purples), that are relaxing and good for meditation gardens.In a front yard, colors can be used along with “line” to draw attention to a path leading up to the front door along a path or driveway. This color rendering can be achieved by planting flowering plants with bright hues, along the path lining.
Line
Straight or “hard” lines direct the eye along a path and emphasize length; this might be good for making a small house or yard look bigger. Curved lines, as in a round or semi-circular garden soften long straight hard lines of buildings. This is one way of creating a balanced landscape composition.
Plant Form and Texture
There are several plant forms or textures (of leaves and branching trends). There is the columnar (an extreme would be the Lombardy Poplar, with its branches pointing to the sky), weeping trees (trees like the weeping willow, and Japanese Maple tree), that give a luxurious feel and can be very impressive in a yard or garden, and spreading trees, shrubs. Relative size of plants and trees should be kept gradual except in special cases, where special effects are desired. In this case, extremely tall trees or plants (like the elephant ear) would be placed close to ferns or other plants with small leaves, thus producing a striking contrast.
Border Definition
Usually created by fences, walls or other borders such as with a rock wall or border, border definition is necessary around garden areas to give a finished look. In a front yard it is nice to have a small garden next to the house, to bring color and contrast to a brick wall or to a color that is not so pleasing to the eye. In this case, using a border of small bricks or a small fence is nice.
mowed lawns are a recent custom in our society. Other yard plans are definitely optional and looking just like the neighbors is not a necessity. One beautiful plan is a desert look. This look takes plants and trees that would be found in a warm dry climate and brings them together to cover a full front yard. This gives a yard a full, unique, and well-cared for look if done right. Use rocks, metal jars, sculptures, various plant varieties and other such resources according to the theme you’ve decided.

There are many other sources for great landscaping design ideas in many different places. The Internet has a lot of information and there are even whole courses and websites for landscaping ideas. Another source for ideas on landscaping yards is the local library or possibly local college courses that might cover landscape ideas. This article is just the beginning of many sources that are available for learning more about landscaping your front yard.

Use space intelligently to create an aesthetically compelling expression, that goes with the architecture of your house. Think out-of-the-box, listen to the artistic spirit within you, to begin your composition!

Flower Bed Border Ideas

Flower Bed BorderFlower bed borders give flower beds the perfect polished look, that any gardener aims for. They add to a garden’s style and landscaping. Flower bed edging not only provides the flower beds with good visual appeal, but they also provide for easy maintenance and the cutting down of mowing time. Flower bed edging also keeps grass from occupying the flower garden soil. Flower bed edging ideas know no boundaries and can be as innovative and funky as your imagination lets them be. Yet, I present some popular landscaping ideas for your flower beds, in the paragraphs given below. These landscaping ideas are fairly simple and even an amateur gardener can successfully experiment with them.

Plant Edging

The most obvious and also the most traditional way of edging your flower beds, is by using plants. These plants can be flowering plants, perennial herbs, shrubs or even small trees. Plant borders should be large enough to catch the eye, yet small enough to not require heavy maintenance. While wide plant borders look good with flower beds with tall flowering, layering and variations in their shapes give the garden a nice overall look. Plant flower bed borders with tall foliage, also provide for privacy and can be used near garden benches. Asters, geraniums, chrysanthemums, day lilies, tulips and other flowers make for bright flower bed edging material. Herbs like sage, keep the cats away from your flowers and give the perfect hedge-like flowerbed borders. While mixed herbs and shrubs look good as borders, climbing vegetation like clematis and ivy also give a good feel.

Mowing Strip

Mowing strips are the ultimate solutions for all those who have less time to spend on gardening. Mowing strips are flat surfaces surrounding the flower beds, that make mowing and maintaining the bed and lawn easier. Brick mowing strips can be made by almost fully burying the bricks, just outside the flower bed. Only one side of the bricks should be showing outside, and all the bricks should be aligned properly with no spaces in between. Brick paver edging strips can be used to hold all the bricks in shape.

Rock Lining

If you do not wish to do any extra work and yet require an effective flower bed border, rock linings are your sure answers. Lining the flower beds with rocks and boulders, in natural shapes and sizes, can actually do the trick for you. It does not require any laying and just needs someone to arrange the rocks in the required stylized shapes. Rock linings look natural and classic when the flowers in the garden are bright and tall. There is a great opportunity for creativity when working with rocks, as one can easily mix and match the sizes and shapes to create patterns like waves, loops and scallops.

Eccentric Edgings

Are you eccentric enough to think differently? Try the recycled bottle edging. Collect bottles, of preferably the same sizes and shapes. Bury them either neck down or bottom down (as you like), consistently, throughout the flower bed perimeter. You’d be amazed at how beautiful this seemingly nonsensical idea looks, once the whole perimeter is completely lined. Similar things can be tried with large seashells. Try scallops or shells, the outcome is sure to be interesting and different. Don’t lay constraints on your imagination. Try out new eccentric ideas on a small patch, carry them on to your garden only when the testing result is appealing. Try colored pebbles, I am sure they’d look good too.

Edging with Cobblestone

Cobblestones remind me of old castles. They remind me of horse hoofs making clocking sound on old cobbled roads. Nostalgia aside, cobblestones give a very rugged look to the flower bed edging. They look classy and are easier to keep clean as well. Flowerbed edgings with cobblestones, are very popular, as they require no extra gardening skills like the plant edgings do. The only drawback is that they are very difficult to lay down.

Terracotta Tile Edging Idea

Terracotta tiles (that come in different colors) can be cut in different decorative shapes and sizes. These are then partially buried near the end of the flower bed to form your perfect flower bed landscaping idea. Terracotta tiles cut down on edging and trimming chores, provide an artistic opportunity and look extremely decorative in your flower garden. Let your imagination run loose and come up with new and innovative designs for using them. Then, even plain old terracotta will make your garden look surreal, right out of a fairy tale.

Edging with Diagonal Brick

The raw material for this type of edging is mainly bricks. Even old mismatched bricks can be used to look really nice if arranged well, leaning in one direction, to give a domino effect. Though red bricks give a classic effect, even colored ones can be used to customize your flower bed edging. The best advantage of this type of edging is that it is very good to let off the excess water in the flower bed, and it is very easy to lay down as well.

Edging Made of Cast Concrete

Cast concrete edgings give a very neat and clean look to the flowerbed, and this can be seen in the photo given at the top of the article. Not only do they give the flower bed a more professional look, the raised concrete edging platforms provide for good water vents for raised flower beds. Concrete edgings are difficult and messy to construct, but the task can be made a whole lot easier if an expert is hired to make them. They can be made in various shapes and sizes, customized to suit your flower garden.

Flower Bed Edgings Using Flagstones

The space between the lawn and the flowerbed can be impeccably separated using a flagstone or bluestone stacking. Not only are they a secure form of edging, but they also provide an English country feel to your flower garden. Since the flagstone rocks are aligned loosely, they provide for water let outs as well. Flagstone linings make mowing easier.

There are many more flower bed edging ideas that you can try in order to adorn your garden as well as the exteriors of your house. Make your flower bed the most talked of gossip in your neighborhood. The above mentioned ideas, can materialize in some admirable flower bed borders that complement your flower bed design. Do try them, they do not require as much effort as you think. More importantly, just imagine how jealous your next door neighbor will be, when she actually spends twice as much time in her flower garden, yet yours is the more enviably talked about one.

A Simple Plan: Rentals

Your Furnace – Keeping You Safe and Warm

Dwellers in cold places know all too well what the extreme cold during winter months can do to the human body. If you stay out in the cold with your exposed, your eyesight could be impacted. Your feet, fingers and toes could fall off due to frostbite. If the cold does not abate, your body will begin to shut down. As the temperature drops, hypothermia sets in. A slowdown in all bodily functions will follow, and at worst, even death.

To fight the cold and heat up houses, you must have a furnace. While cold weather rules the outside, the heat generated from the furnace keeps everyone in the house comfortable and warm.

There are important factors that you should consider in purchasing a furnace. How many years are you expecting to stay on the property? Unless you are planning on staying for more than 15 years, which is the minimum normal life expectancy of your furnace, perhaps you should not buy one, but rent it, instead. Actually, if you expect to leave sooner than the 15 year life of the furnace, it may better to just rent and buy. Otherwise, the more viable move is to buy it.

Climate is a factor bearing on the matter of acquisition. Furnaces use either gas or oil. Base your decision to buy on the availability of the fuel to be used by the furnace and its cost. The kind of material used in building the house has a direct bearing on the type of furnace you should buy. Houses that need more energy to operate require matching higher efficiency furnaces. From the foregoing, you should be able to determine whether to buy is better that to rent, and the kind of furnace you should purchase.

A furnace costs a lot. If you should decide on purchasing the furnace, then you should also want to protect your investment by taking good care of your equipment. To keep the furnace in good working order becomes mandatory.

The filter must be replaced regularly, either monthly or quarterly. Every year, the correct coolant levels should be reinstated. A worn out thermostat may cause the system to not turn on or cause it to prematurely turn off before the desired temperature setting at which the system should deactivate can be reached. Unless cleaned regularly, dirt and grime accumulate in the filter and clog the air vents. Wasted fuel and lowered overall efficiency will result because of the blocked air flow.

It is more viable to shoulder expenses for an annual maintenance rather than to replace the whole furnace.
