My Parents Seem to Be Quite Happy

Of course my father was born on a farm. When I was a kid we would go back to the eastern part of North Carolina, some times I would stay with one of my grandparents all summer long riding horses and driving their tractors. At any rate they bought ten acres of land and they seem as happy as can be. It is only about twenty minutes from where we live and they made sure that there is room for all of the grandchildren to sleepover. I went up today and found them planting fruit tree saplings on both sides of the gravel driveway or road that runs from the road to the house and then to the lake. The Lake does not belong to them completely I think that they own about two acres out of around six acres. Continue reading

Started Working on My New Shop

It is going to be about a month or two before I move the operation, but I have found a nice big place to build my new shop. It sits right on Lake Erie and I used to fish near there when I was a kid. We would ride our bikes down there and play in this big field not far away. I have to get some new gear to start with, so I ordered some stuff from canada mag drills to improve efficiency. The reason we need the new shop is because we have some new business that we need to get out the door quicker and I am going to start out by having the operation focused on one specific job. The building is really too big for our current needs, but that is going to change if things go the right way and I want to be ready for growth obviously. Continue reading

How to Start a New Garden

In order to start a new garden, you will want to have a part of the ground cordoned off with netting stanchions. You will want to find an area that gets a lot of sunshine and that you are able to water. You will want to make sure that you choose an area that gets the right amount of sun for the types of fruits and vegetables that you are trying to grow. You will also need to take into account the way that the sun hits your gardening spot, as well. You will find that there are a lot of things to consider when choosing the right spot for your garden. You will then need to do a test to see if your hose will reach to the spot that you want to have your garden. The next thing that you will want to do is have a look at the soil that is in the area that you chose. If you choose an area with quality soil, it will mean that you will have a lot less tilling and preparation work of the soil before you can begin planting your garden. This means that you should check the pH of the soil using a pH tester.

The Flowers Were Important to Me

We were able to find a great place to order wedding flowers in liverpool. My fiance and I were so exited about our upcoming wedding. We were both college students, so when we got married, we really did not have that much money. His parents really wanted us to get married in Liverpool close to all of his family. I did not really care about where I got married, because all I really had was my mother, and she was going to come were ever I had my wedding. His parents promised that they would pay for everything if we got married there, so I decided that that would be the best thing.

I tried my hardest to orchestrate everything from the United States, but it was so hard to do things, and I really had to let his mother do most things. I told her the colors that I wanted, and she promised to respect that, and I was so excited. His mother would show me everything that she found through pictures, and I really liked the things that she was showing me, because it was obvious to me that she had really good taste. I was not that picky, so I was happy.

The flowers were really important to me, so I told her that I would find the florist when I arrived. I got to Liverpool about a month before my wedding, and I felt like I was never going to find a florist that I would like. I had the idea in my mind of the design that I wanted, and I was getting nervous, because I thought that I would never find it.

I found a florist that was about an hour away, and when I saw the designs that they had, I knew that they were for me. I was able to order my flowers, and they made them for me in no time.

My wedding in Liverpool turned out beautiful. My mother in law handled all the details, and the flowers were just like I wanted them to be.

Tackling Landscape Design with a Professional Garden

Choices in Landscape Design require a close attention to detail and the surrounding scenery that may not be within your own property lines. Choosing a beautiful garden is one thing, but if it clashes with the local area, the impact may be a negative one and you’ll be left feeling foolish for the wasted time and effort. Proper landscaping will require more than one set of eyes to really get the full depth of the work required and the costs sustained. Many cheaper and easier jobs around the outside of the home can make a big difference in the visual impact of your yard without requiring the huge undertaking of renovating the countryside. An obvious choice lies in the traditional garden. Taken a small amount of time to get a lay of the land and clear away a good patch for the seasonal plants can make a monumental difference in the flow and colors of your lawn. Where to plant the garden is one thing, but what you choose to plant is equally as important.

We Are Working on Our Garden

I guess I have moved into the house beside my father in law, but it is not bad at all. Martin is a really nice guy and he is a really smart man who knows everything about growing his own food. Now he is a somewhat retired insurance agent, meaning that he has a fair number of clients he retained after he stopped selling insurance full time. They come over and he shows them how he collects rain water in big water tanks buried in the ground. He has a greenhouse where he dabbles in hydroponics. I kid him that the police might go through his trash and think he is growing pot, but instead he just likes to have fresh vegetables year round. He was delighted when I told him I was going to let him help me grow even more food. It is hard work, but I find it relaxing. In particular I never had my own yard except for a short time when I lived with my grandfather in South Carolina. I know almost nothing about gardening.

Helping My Father Maintain His Lawn

Marshalls Haworth Moor Stone SettsIt is always a challenge trying to be a good son especially when your parents get up in age. I vividly remember my father when he was younger being an extremely active man, who always took steps to make sure that his home and his lawn looked immaculate. However now that time is gone on, and my father is getting up in age you starting to let things like landscaping go. Every time I go to his house, I try to do little things to improve the appearance of his lawn. This month I contacted a landscaping liverpool company and I invited them to come out and look at my father’s lawn, and see if it was something that we could do to not only beautify it, but also to reduce the amount of work that he has to do.

After reviewing my father’s backyard, one of the ideas I came up with was to simply replace some of the grass areas with cobblestone. They were two benefits to this. One benefit is that it would just make the entire area look nice and it would make it look more organized. The second benefit to this is that my father would not have to cut as much grass, as he does right now, because some of the area that was formerly covered in grass would now be paved in stone.
