Unleash Your Creative Gardening This Spring
I don’t know about you, but I take walks in the neighborhood in the summer and I always stop and admire well organized gardens, coordinated collars and green lush lawn. In fact, we drive to Holland Michigan every year to attend the tulip festival and enjoy the great collections of tulips of all colors.
In addition to colors and beauty, we plant a host of vegetables and herbs every year and we enjoy exchanging crops with our neighbors and friends.
Getting our gardens looking good and ready for planting is no an accident. It is a lot of work and most it is done early. With the snow hopefully gone and the weather is warming up, it is time to prepare the garden. We will be bringing you tips on how to prepare your garden for planting flowersand vegetables. Please let us know what you are looking for to bring it to you directly to your smartphone and send us your photos of your gardens at email@example.com
How to grow a vegetable garden in Michigan
Michigan has relatively short growing season, but you can still enjoy a variety of vegetables and bring fresh produce to your table. It all rests on when and where to plant, what to plant for the cold and the warm season, and how to maintain it. Read more …
Toss variety of seeds around the yard for easy, beneficial plantings
I’ll let you in on a little secret — I am a mass polluter. Every fall I walk through my small garden and gather seeds from the native perennials. I have a little paper lunch bag for each plant (nearly 100), labeled and dated, that I store the seeds in. Sometimes I take a mix of six to 10 plants, put them in one bag, drive down the nearest rural road and hang the bag out of my car window until it’s empty. I have yet to see anything sprout alongside the road’s edge, but a guy can hope. Do you have a little bit of this in you, too? Ever wondered about spreading seeds everywhere to create a creative natural garden? Read more
Natural Swimming Pools: More Beauty, No Chemicals
Keep your skin and the environment healthy with a pool that cleans itself, naturally
Summer’s heat is not far behind the bursting of spring blooms and windy rains. This summer imagine yourself cooling off by floating in a backyard pool that feels immersed in nature.
Natural swimming pools use plants or a combination of plants and sand filters to keep the water clean and clear without chemicals. They were developed in Austria and Germany in the 1980s and have since grown in popularity worldwide. They can be designed in a multitude of ways: Some look like natural ponds; others may be disguised as standard tiled pools.
Whatever look you are trying to achieve, the principles of function are the same for both natural swimming pools and traditional ones. But natural pools are better for your hair and skin because they’re chemical free. Click here for more.

Summer is the height of gardening season. Farmer’s markets and roadside stands are filled with fresh produce, while home gardens are at the peak of production. It’s a time when eating fresh and healthy is easy and enticing.

Preparing your garden:
Left: Leila, 2, is helping pick vegetables from the garden last summer
Right: Yusef enjoys playing next to the basil plant
For a start, Better Homes and Garden magazine recommends the following to prepare the garden:
Check for signs of growth: Did you remember to plant snow crocus last fall? If not, cut forsythia or magnolia branches to bring inside for forcing to get a dose of early spring color.
Prep the beds: Remove winter mulch or, if well composted, work into the top layer of the soil. Work in some leaf mold or well-rotted manure, too.
Prune: Now is the time to trim fruit trees if you didn’t prune in winter. Prune before buds begin to break into bloom or you’ll stress the tree and get a tiny crop (or possibly none).
Perform basic maintenance: Check stonework for frost heaves. Check and clean the deck now so you don’t have to do it later; make any repairs.
Start seeds indoors: You’ve spent the winter reading seed and plant catalogs, so try some.
Learn more about seed-starting.
Plant veggies: Hardy vegetables, such as onions, potatoes, artichokes, and some lettuces, should be planted now.
Divide perennials: Before plants have begun spring growth is a good time to divide many perennials. Share some divisions with your friends this year.
Here is a spring pruning guide for trees and shrubs. The Old Farmer’s Almanac presents a guide to when and how to prune specific varieties of trees and shrubs.
I bet the first thing you notice is plants with plenty of flowers, especially the ones with more flowers than leaves. Here are a few tips on how to make your plants explode with blooms and colors.
How to build raised beds for your veggies, plants or herbs
If you are tired of your old backyard or if you want to farm your parking strip, planting boxes are good solutions. They would allow you to control weed, organize your plants and herbs and beautify concrete boring spaces. Some people make the boxes themselves while others hire companies to design the layout and make the boxes in interesting and appropriate applications. Whatever you do, make sure you do it right to add beauty to your yard or front spaces. Read more …..
