Implement Eco Friendly Features in Garden

The first thing you need to do is select the plants that you will want in your landscape garden. You need to find the right plants and think about the chemicals that you will be using. Many people when creating a garden make the mistake of picking plant solely on their beauty and without giving a though to its maintenance cost. One needs to understand that maintaining plants can be quite expensive and takes time to care for them in the right manner. Drought tolerant plants are the best for different climate conditions. Apart from these, you need to pick plants that are native to the area where you live it or want the plants to be put in. These plants will grow naturally without the need of human interference, will need less water and there will be no requirement of any soil amendments to be done.

While weeds can hinder with the plant growth, having pests is much worse. They can invade the plants and you will need to use chemical pesticide

Tricks Clean Artificial Grass

Weekly Cleaning

As noted above, one of the few regular maintenance operations which should be undertaken with artificial grass is weekly cleaning. This task can usually be achieved by simply hosing down the artificial turf carpet, either with pure water or applying a mild detergent or liquid soap in a solution. This helps remove any debris which may have accumulated between the fibres, ensuring they remain in good condition and aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

It is important, however, that home-owners do not use any type of chemical solution with active ingredients when cleaning an artificial turf carpet. This is because these types of agents tend to damage the artificial grass, thus acting counter-productively to the home-owner’s intent.

Monthly Cleaning

While on a weekly basis it is enough to lightly rinse down the artificial turf carpet, a more extensive cleaning session should be undertaken at least once a month. This should ideally involve combing the artificial grass with a rake or stiff-bristled brush or broom, to remove any debris, dust, dirt, leaves or other fouling

Outdoor Lighting for Front And Back Yard

Most residential neighborhoods, especially those in the suburbs or upstate areas, don’t have a lot of lights lighting up the private spaces. The roads may be well lit, unless you are driving on a not so important highway, but the private premises which would include everything from your driveway to the backyard, your patio to the backdoor will not be well lit. Let’s face it, no one likes going to the dark side of the property at night.

Any property should be adequately lit. It should not be over the top as that would be a waste of energy and it should not be poorly lit or not lit at all. There are many reasons why you should call in your electrician and set up outdoor lighting. You don’t need to spend a small fortune. You don’t need elaborate arrangements. You can opt for humble lights or you can go for decorative lighting. As long as you are lighting up your outdoor, it is a great improvement.

Decorative lighting will highlight your deck,

Not All Concrete Pools

Concrete pools typically take 3 to 12 weeks to install but they are considered the most durable of all types of pools-demonstrated by the fact that there are some still in use today that were installed more than 50 years ago. Both shotcrete and gunite methods spray the cement at a steel rebar backbone. Once the concrete cures, a plaster finish is troweled over the surface. Each method produces durable pools that can be remodeled or enlarged but each has their own distinctive advantages. Debate continues as to which technique lasts longer, but here are a few comparisons.

Gunite

Invented in 1907, gunite is the name of the process whereby a dry concrete mix is shot from a hose using compressed air along with a water hose that’s mounted underneath, with each hose individually adjustable to alter the mix. Gunite usually demands a highly skilled technician in order to maintain the correct water-to-cement ratio.

  • Gunite remains dry enough to stay in place without dripping.
  • The mixture can harden and dry faster than shotcrete.
  • This material can be sprayed vertically at a target without falling off.
  • Remaining concrete mixture can be kept and used at a later time.
