  • If the blades on a push mower are sharp. you get a better cut then a regular lawn mower.  I re-use soil year after year by amending it with a produce called bio-comp.  It is a mulch and peanut shell mixture that is great and best of all, I never feed anything potted with it.  Next I want to get a composite tumbler, between all the green waste from my house (banana peels etc, ...) and all the trimming I collect, I can make some brown gold.
     
    A also water much less them most.  I almost never start to before Mid - Late May and stop in Mid September.  When I do water, it is always a deep soak.  That way the roots find there way down rather then stay on the surface and in the long run you use less water and lose less plants.
     
    Enough of the green thumb, where the heck is the surf???
