- Is easy to set up!
It’s summer time and while you have the chance you can get down and get dirty by creating your own garden! But before you get planting, you need to make sure your dirt’s ready for the task. The best way to do this is to conduct a simple soil test to see what it might be lacking.
Once you know what kind of soil you have, you can start adding materials to make up for its deficiencies. Compost will always be a welcome addition to your soil, but depending on the results of the test there may be different products that you should add as well.

Hate seeing that boring dry lawn? Well, you don’t have to. Perhaps you should stop being a couch potato and get up and plant some grass seeds. In warm climate regions like Jamaica, the Bermuda (Cynodon Dactylon), and Zoysia grass seeds are popularly. Bermuda grass is known for its toughness, sharp edges, fast growing and recovering really fast when damaged. Zoysia, on the other hand, takes longer to recuperate from damages if not cured properly.
