Hello, my name is Jose Zuniga and I am representing expertvillage.com. I'm going to guide you how to plan your day. Well, for starters you're going to do this project on the weekend. Do not water your yard one day prior to your project, especially if you're going to be working with electrical devices, safety first. You're going to start early in the morning, Saturday morning, you're going to have a good breakfast, plenty of water, you're going to wear a little bit of a loose clothing, no jewelry, perhaps even gloves. Now, we don't want to wake up the neighbors, we don't want to disturb them what so ever, so let's start working with the flowerbed and we'll work with weeding the grass. It's 10 o'clock, now we can start mowing our grass. After that it gets a little bit warm, well have yourself a cap, a sun blocker as well. Remember get 8 hours of sleep on your prior night, you need that energy, lots of fluids throughout the day. You don't have to do this in one day it could be a two day event. Now, it's getting to be a little warmer now, what are we going to do? Let's work under the shade, let's trim those trees. Go around it and weed it out if necessary. Now, later in the day, we'll work in the other part of the yard, going to start with the topsoil and we're going to add a little bit of mulch. Remember never water your yard before 6 pm, you are just wasting money. Enjoy it, don't make this a chore, after all this is your yard and you're going to be proud of it. You're going to beautify it and you will be the envy of the neighborhood and enjoy your yard and this is how we plan a day.
