Avid gardeners will plant spring bulbs starting in October. The bulbs need to experience colder temperatures in order to begin the biochemical process that allows them to flower in the spring. But that doesn’t mean you’ve missed your chance. Some spring plantings can be tricked and still bloom right on schedule.
There is so much to love about the fall, from flavors to colors to the cooler temperatures that allow you to enjoy the backyard and your patio without excessive heat. It’s also a fun time for kids to create some seasonal crafts they can show off outside the home, so gather up some munchkins and create some fall décor to place around your yard and patio this season.
Whether you live in a rural, wide open space or a densely populated subdivision, you may want to incorporate some privacy elements into your new or existing landscape design to avoid feeling “watched over” from passers-by or your neighbors. There are lots of ways to create a little privacy and, depending on your porch or backyard layout, you may only need to enclose one or two sides of the space.
Check your terrarium for the first few weeks; as diseases often appear at this time. Any leaves that die or plants that do not appear healthy should be removed immediately. Root rot is often a sign of too much water. If rot develops in a closed terrarium, take the cover off and allow it to air dry.
It’s that time of year again; when the holiday season is behind us and hibernating from the winter weather is starting to get really old.
Why not plan a ladies craft night and make terrariums? These miniature nature scenes are fun to make and can work with any home décor style.
Let's face it, when it comes to home décor decisions, the majority of the time the woman of the household takes the lead. From the lighting fixtures and rugs, to the wall colors and pillows, most men know that they better check in before they even think about hanging a picture.
