If you want to make the most out of your edges, create a natural edge around beds as opposed to simply purchasing metal or plastic edging. Edging is a good way to provide a landscape with a certain look. The good thing about a natural edge is the ease of maintenance over the long tem and also offers better flexibility in terms of any changes on the landscape.
Lawn Irrigation/ Sprinkler System Tips
One of the most overlooked areas of the irrigation system is the timer. It is a good idea to reset your irrigation timer at least once every month. Try not to use your summer settings once the start of the rainy season arrives as this will just result in a lot of wasted water not to mention possibly ruining your plants. Try to dig into the soil once in a while in order to determine how deeply the water is actually getting into. If the water is not getting beyond two or three inches chances are you have compacted soil that may require aeration. Healthy grass needs to reach at least 4 inches into the soil.
