We hope that you enjoy this 5-step tutorial to grass seeding. All of the steps are important, but we often overlook the first and last steps of the process, since they are not the most fun :(. It is very critical that you prepare your soil so that you ensure good "seed to soil" contact. The same can be said for the last step and that is to water daily. New grass seeds love a moist, warm soil and that is only achieved with frequent watering.

Here is a summary of the 5-steps. Be sure to watch our view below for a more detailed look at this process...

Step 1: Prepare the soil

Step 2: Choose grass seed and sprinkle

Step 3: Apply top coat

Step 4: Apply fertilizer

Step 5: Water daily

How often should I stain my deck? This depends on which product you choose, but typically stains need to be reapplied every 3 years. They slowly breakdown from foot traffic and UV light, so by staining your deck, you are not only providing beauty, you are making sure that the surface remains protected from the harsh sunlight, water, and chemicals that they are exposed to throughout the year.

What are the best stains to use? The best stain for your deck will depend on a couple factors: 1) the condition of your deck and damage that might need to be hidden, and 2...

Most of us have probably been stuck at a location because our car battery has died. Large rechargeable jump starters were often seen as cumbersome and unappealing. Jumper cables don't help if another vehicle is not around.

When fully charged, you can obtain up to 20 jump starts per charge. Included with this battery pack are (-) and (+) jumper cables that are petite enough to fit inside your glove compartment.

temp-post-imageNot impressed with the results you are getting out of your lawn fertilizers? Looking for that secret ingredient to improve your lawn and keep it green all year long? Consider using Jonathan Green’s Magical and Love Your Lawn, Love Your Soil. These two products feed your soil, not your grass.

Plus, using ethanol free gasoline is very helpful (especially now-a-days) and we talk about that in more detail in a prior Blog article (seen here).

If you are looking for the EASIEST to start engine, hands-down... it is the I-75 recoil start engines from Echo. What makes the I-Start so unique? It is the spring-assisted recoil start that requires 75% starting effort than a typical small engine. There is very little resistance when you p...
