For example, one home gardening tip recommended by home depot is not to plant on a warm, sunny day. Instead plant it on a dark, overcast day when it is expected to rain. The reason being a new plant needs plenty of showers when it is young.

You also will want to choose your new plants carefully. Choose only short and sturdy plants with only a few flowers. Look at the leaves of the plant to determine it’s condition. If it is discolored and wilted, then don’t buy it.

The flower bed is also equally important. Try to put at least one inch of compost or organic matter on the flower bed once a year. You should also loosen the soil to about 12 inches depth for annuals and about 18 inches depth for perennial plants. Try to use a ground rake to loosen and smoothen the soil.

Water Fountains For a Beautiful Home and Garden

Water fountains have been in existence for many centuries. As a matter of fact, they have been already popular in the ancient times. The Roman influence on them is strong even today. As the ancient Roman population was more than a million people, the engineers constructed 11 aqueducts to give a stream of fresh water to everyone in the city.

Once the decline of the Roman empire was underway, many of these aqueducts got cut, however the Middle Ages has seen a restoration of many aqueducts and the creation of various public fountains. Ever since then garden types have been very popular all over the world.

These days water fountains have various uses, ranging from drinking fresh water to being beautiful pieces of engineering art. You can find many different designs that can greatly enhance any garden they are placed in. You can find jet fountains in front of various governmental and commercial buildings, and in many parks. They can be either single or multi tiered whereby the design perfectly blends in with the ambient.

There are also floating fountains that are very popular in ponds and pools. A wall type with a dim light installed on it is flowing nicely like a satin curtain. The one with the lion head is one of the most common types that come to mind. The choices are endless and whether you want it indoors or outdoors, you can find the perfect one for your needs.

The Feng Shui fountain is popular indoors when you like meditate or you want to enhance the health and wealth of anyone being in the room. If you are into Feng Shui, this is a must. However avoid keeping it in the bedroom as the water element and sleeping quarters don’t mix well.

Good for the home builder companies, but unfortunate that America is losing these skill sets.
