Rules of Thumb

Make sure your mower blades are sharp to avoid shredding the grass and set at two inches. Cut your lawn twice a week, in the early evening or morning, and let the grass clippings disintegrate into a moisture-retaining mulch. Give your lawn a deep watering once a week, counting rain purely as a bonus.


To dress up or cover up, to hide or accent, shrubs are the ideal solution to many landscaping needs. They can disguise a fence or screen the view of a busy street, provide privacy, buffer wind and noise or add a profusion of color in the garden, especially after a bleak winter.

Although the eye-catching beauty of flowering shrubs is undeniable, many non-flowering varieties contribute seasonal rewards as well, including autumn color, decorative fruit and colorful bark.
