Home lawn care is a task easily tailored to individual lifestyle — basic, intermediate, or master gardener. Basic maintenance like mowing, fertilizing, and pest control done routinely yields a nicely trimmed yard with little time investment. Add some intermediate tasks like irrigation (watering), and soil improvement and enjoy a well-manicured lawn. Master gardeners might focus on lawn diseases, maintaining existing lawns or starting new ones. The same skills needed for yard care transition well to gardening. Plan carefully, plant a manageable garden, and enjoy the fruits of tilling the earth.

No matter whether a lawn or garden is postage-stamped sized or majestically sprawled over acres of land, one thing does not change. Nothing beats sitting down with a frosty glass of lemonade, and admiring a neatly manicured lawn or a flourishing garden. Tailor your landscape to your lifestyle and enjoy a stress free, tranquil outdoor escape under a sunbrella.
