When landscaping use a tarp in order to move lightweight bulky debris such as weeds, leaves and brush. You can also use it to hold the soil when digging a hole as well as to keep grass clean. Use a tarp in order to cover plants in the back of the truck from your trip to the nursery. Landscape fabric can be used most effectively under gravel or mulch walkways in order to keep the material from sinking into the soil. Try to avoid weed barrier fabric in planted areas because this only offers a short-terms sense of success because when the weeds will begin growing in the mulch on top of it.
Lawn Irrigation/ Sprinkler System Tips
It is always a good idea to observe your irrigation setup. Keep in mind where water delivery is coating hard surfaces like driveways or walkways or where there is puddling going on in the lawn. As necessary, take time to adjust your nozzles and duration of irrigation in order for you to be able to make the most out of every drop.
