Hi! If you plan to build a garden this spring, I still recommend these garden plans! Perfect time! I'm going to Utah in a week to make two for my daughter! Spring is very excited to start the garden. Happy Spring to everyone! Melanie

Here are a lot of pictures from my spring garden. Cucumber is finally starting to climb the cage. Last time I raised them, they went to the highest, this time they couldn't get the bill and they were lazily low. I have many tomatoes growing and collecting two bells […]

I spent a little time pinching this week. Basil likes to be bored. Every time I'm in my garden, I've cut down the tops and it looks like it's getting bigger and bigger. I squeezed the lower leaves from my tomato plants. I also found mushrooms! The fungus of the soil in your garden is a sign […]

I share a few pictures of two weeks of my spring / summer garden. I didn't realize how much I missed being in my garden every day. Everything is growing so fast, it's fun to watch the miracle of all of them. Soon everything will be big and lush. Happy Spring to you! ~ Melanie

It's been a long time! I finally went back to my garden and I ditched it last week. My garden is heaven on earth and oh, how did I miss it. My orange tree is huge and my pomegranate grows. The orange flower smells gorgeous! [...]

What is the best way to replant your lawn?

If you're tired of tanning in your garden, lifeless grass stains or stubborn heaps of crab grass, there may be time to refresh your lawn. There are several ways to regenerate your lawn, but sometimes damage can be too heavy for a quick repair. Destroy your entire garden - lawns and all - for complete regeneration and sprinkle brand new grass seeds on the lawn.

Step 1

Determine whether to install a new series of cold season grass or warm season grass. Cold season grasses - as the name suggests - grow in cold months. Warm season grasses develop well in warmer weather. Your seed selection determines when you need to plant your new seeds. Start sowing seeds in the warm season in early spring and plant seeds in the warm season in early autumn.

Step 2

Kill your old herbs with herbicides. Spray the herbicides directly on the grass. Avoid spraying everything you don't want to die for (trees, bushes and flowers, for example). Begin the destruction of old herbs early, because it may take several weeks for the herbicides to function properly. Read the instructions for herbicide containers carefully before use.

Step 3

Turn the soil 6 inches up in your garden. Use a shovel for small areas. Larger grass areas may require rototiller. A rototiller is a machine specially designed to break up soil. Break up piles of soil larger than your fist.

Step 4

Pour your grass seeds into a manually pushed seed spreader. Bring the seed drill to the corner of the garden and start pushing it slowly and steadily. Walk along a zigzag line in your garden, distributing the seeds evenly across the raised soil.

Step 5

Apply a thin layer of soil over the freshly sown seeds. This helps to protect them from hungry birds and other animals that may try to eat your seeds. Water the lawn with a soft water spray.
