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.
