Gardening Hacks and Tips
You guys I have a black thumb with the desires of a green thumb. No matter how much I want my yard to look beautiful, I am either not motivated or I am not “talented” when it comes to the yard and garden. We recently were lucky to move into a new home with a beautiful yard. The owners before us were gardeners and when we purchased the home, I loved every detail on the outside. However, as they left and months grew into more months, I missed the yard that I purchased. It has changed and become overgrown with weeds. Once the weeds came, I had a hard time distinguishing the difference between what was supposed to stay and what was supposed to head straight to the trash. This Gardening Hacks post was not only for you, but more so for me! Enjoy these tips and let’s try to accomplish this green thumb thing together!
