Adding an alpine rock garden to your yard's design is a great way to add beauty while reducing water use and installing a low maintenance landscape feature. So, how can you install your own colorful garden? Here's a quick guide to getting the job done easily:
Look for a Sunny Spot
Alpine gardens work well in nearly any climate because of their natural durability. But, in general, they love a lot of sun.
Do you have the freshest, healthiest, greenest grass on the whole block? Does your lawn put all others to shame? Why not make it even better!? There are quite a few great ways to make your lawn look even more dynamic. Here are a few tips for a better looking lawn. Best of all, these tips don't require changing anything about your actual lawn.
Frame Your Lawn With Foundation Plants
Starting a fire in your own fireplace or wood-burning stove is so enjoyable. However, in order to have those warm and lovely fires, you need to store your firewood. If you'll be storing your firewood outdoors, here are some tips to make sure the wood stays in good shape and does not cause any other damage to your landscaping.
Create a long stack.
It's better to keep your wood in a long, low stack than in one tall, disorganized pile.
Keeping your home well-maintained and attractive in appearance includes making sure your lawn and landscaping are well cared for, healthy, and lush. When any part of your home's landscaping becomes dried, scraggly, or overgrown, it can detract from your home's entire exterior appearance. Here are two important keys to remember when caring for your lawn to make sure it stays healthy and attractive.
Schedule Your Watering

With the price of water rising in many areas as levels of drought increases, it may seem like it's impossible to maintain a healthy flowering garden. Designing your landscape to make the most of the water, especially where you need it most, is key to keeping things green. The following are a few ideas to consider.
Idea #1: Install drip irrigation
Drip or sub irrigation systems provide water right to the roots of the plants, so the moisture isn't lost to evaporation or wasted or areas of the landscape that don't require water.
