Garden MarkersSpring is officially here and now is the perfect time to decide what you plan on growing this year in your home garden. Many of us already know what green peppers and tomatoes look like, but can you always tell the difference between parsley and cilantro?

Home gardening is essential if you hate pesticides or just want to save money on your groceries. It’s also a great stress reliever, and depending on what herbs you plan on growing, it can make your home and garden smell just divine. But of course, it also has to be visually appealing and that’s where your style and creativity come into play.

Rustic and repurposed is huge right now and why not jump on the bandwagon and give your garden a touch of just that. The charm you get from using repurposed items gives your garden a bit of Americana and vintage style – perfect for any setting.

Create an Outdoor Living Space

April 17, 2014 by  

out1With the return of warm weather, it’s time to get outside! After a long, cold winter, spending the majority of your time indoors can feel stifling. If you’re tired of being stuck inside, creating a comfortable and inviting outdoor living space is the perfect solution. Here are some tips to help you turn your backyard into a functional and inviting extension of your home.

A set of heavy-duty barbecue tools will make both cooking and clean-up easier. Hardcore grilling enthusiasts even install prep areas, complete with storage, sinks, and counter space. Plastic dishes and cups are a safer option than using your normal place settings, because shattered glass is hard to find in grass and gravel. Be sure to get a giant cooler for drinks and condiments, and you’re all set.
