Cornhole Game – A Fun Lawn Game For All

I used to work for a small printing company that specialized in printing apparel. We were a small operation, 3 employees that consisted of a sales guy, a printer and an operations/do it all guy (that was me). We had 2 small presses for screen printing and on a good day, with both presses going full time, we could produce about 100 prints an hour.

The increased use of piped municipal water and the invention of sprinklers have made mechanical irrigation the most commonly used watering method, particularly for lawns and large areas. Sprinkler irrigation works best with well-draining soils and shallow-rooted plants, or where a cooling effect is desired. But sprinklers have several disadvantages. They waste water, since much of it is sprayed on areas other than the root zone around the plant. Because much of the water is thrown high in the air, loss due to evaporation can be significant. Sprinklers can also foster fungal diseases and other problems with some plants such as roses that don’t like having wet foliage. Sprinklers require good water pressure and are best used on plants which are not in bloom. Several types of sprinklers are available.

Repeat the gluten boron and super-seeding regimen again beginning in late August. First apply the gluten. Then in late September go after the creeping Charlie with the boron. Super-seed the entire lawn, and pay attention to any patches. And don’t wait until it’s too late: Grass seeds need about a straight week of temperatures in the seventies to germinate.

Forget about the big brown bags you need to buy from your local home center or the bag on your Lawn mower. Install a mulching blade on your lawn mower. You can get them at any store that sells lawn mowers or lawn equipment. They cost around $20 (depending on your lawn mower of course) and are great. They chop up the grass into fine particles which makes for faster decomposition on your Landscaping. The grass clippings themselves make for some of the best nutrients your lawn will ever need.

Lighting. Replace that single center bulb with an 8-ft. fluorescent light strip. If you have a workbench or bonus space, additional lighting will be necessary and can include LED task lighting, spot lights or more fluorescent strips. Don’t forget outside lighting. Place two fixtures on either side of the garage door and additional fixtures by every outside access door.

Check taps or water equipment for signs of leaks and repair as quickly as you can. One drop a second leaking from Lawn Care a tap can be as much as litres a year. Use a trigger on the end of your hose so that the water is never left running onto the ground.

Spittle bug: This small, greenish-yellow insect hides inside a circular mass of white foam on the surface of new stems, usually during the development of the first bloom cycle in early spring. Spray a jet of water to remove the foam and the insect.
