Hello! My name is Jose Zuniga and I am representing expertvillage.com. Well what we have to do when we work in our yard? It's an ongoing project and we've got to maintain the yard beautiful. One way by doing that is watering your plants every other day but be sure it is in the evening. Don't do it midday. All you are going to do is just waste your money and water is going to evaporate. We want to maintain the moisture in your plants, your flower beds, your shrubs and your trees. What are you going to do? Well you are going to add a little bit of moisture by adding the mulch. The mulch is going to help the moisture. Another thing you can do is once a week, weed out those flower beds. Remove those weeds. We want beautiful flowers year round. Another step that you can do is buy that weed killer. Just follow the directions and you will be fine. Don't forget about the coffee grains. Acid lover plants will love that. Once a month should be plenty. Now what about the ivory. Don't forget about the ivory. Use that ivory. It's going to kill those little enemies forever plants. We don't want to do that. We want to keep them healthy. Plant food is definitely as good as well. It is going to help it grow faster, more flowers are going to bloom every season and that is exactly what you want. You want to beautify your yard. It is real basic. It is very rewarding when your neighbor comes to you and says that is a beautiful yard. And what are you going to say. I am my own gardener. Well this is how we do our yard maintenance.
