Whether you want to install a simple stone walkway or completely redesign your garden, it is time take that project from dream to done! Here are a few simple tips to create an enjoyable gardening experience.
1. Protect your back. Heavy materials such as stone slabs or bricks, can really slow down a project.... Be smart and rent a mini skid steer to simplify the task. Not to mention a mini-skid can aug holes, trench, carry, grade, dig and prep provided you have the proper attachments.
2. Multi-use recycling. The garden is a great place to re-use items which would otherwise be thrown away. For example…try cutting a milk jug into a scoop. This scoop shape can be used as a quick gutter cleaner or a simple hand shovel. Other uses for a jug include a watering can, funnel, or a bird feeder.
3. Start a compost pile. Compost piles are a great way to provide lasting nutrients to your garden. You can either build your own out of simple materials such as chicken wire or purchase one from The Home Depot. By adding a mix of brown and green ingredients, your garden will thrive from the ongoing boost of nutrients.
