Koi ponds are all the rage for homeowners these days. There is nothing like relaxing at the water’s edge while feeding a writhing school of koi or goldfish as they fight for every last scrap of Purina fish chow.

When it comes to weeds, it pays to work smart. Pulling weeds is one of the most tedious and persistent chores of gardening. Spending time on your hands and knees eliminating these little pests is not just unpleasant; it also takes away from time that could be spent gardening.
In many landscapes, the outdoor kitchen is the focal point, the centerpiece, the crowning touch of a painstakingly-designed and highly-anticipated entertainment space. And sometimes, it needs just that little extra something to make it really pop. More and more grilling stations and exterior bars are getting graced with granite as that final detail that puts it over the edge and takes it from so-so to sssssweeet!
Catch the Today Show on NBC on Monday? If not, you missed Heather Cabot, the Web Life Editor for Yahoo! and The Well Mom, talking about how gardening has gone digital. We were excited to hear Heather profile YardShare as the new way that homeowners can share and “socialize” their yards…
A lot of us look at our gorgeously-planted and perfectly-manicured yards and think, I could just about live out here.; Well, for many wild animals, your landscape really is their home. And inviting the local wildlife to hang out and share our outdoor spaces is just another way to get a lot of enjoyment out of a beautiful yard.
Sometimes, your budget may hold you back from making major changes in your landscaping. You’ve got to look for ways to create an attractive outdoor environment while saving money. Unfortunately, extreme couponing won’t help you pay for stump removal.
Most of the landscapes featured on YardShare are residential areas designed by homeowners (and they do a great job!) But we also get a chance to peek at how the other half lives, too. The concepts presented in these glamorous resort landscapes can be used to make your own yard look even better.
