You can look at pruning shrubs and trimming hedges as a chore, or you can look at it as a creative outlet. Many new gardeners don’t feel they are up to the task and put it off. But it’s much better if you start pruning your shrubs right away when they are young and continue to do minor annual pruning each year rather than let them get overgrown and end up needing major renewal pruning. Regular pruning also helps promote healthier shrubs that produce more blooms.

Ah, spring. Take advantage of the season and prepare your lawn for maximum lushness. Now is the time to repair dead patches, apply fertilizer, and aerate and top dress.

The storage cube is a beautifully simple form, yet it is perhaps the most versatile of all modular home storage systems. Essentially a wooden box, the cube can hold anything you want it to, and you can build it almost any size you like. You can mount it on a wall, hang it from the ceiling, set it on a desk, or stack it on the floor with a group of other cubes. You can also add to its function with a coat hook or a shelf if it is wall hung.

Landscape beds dress up a plain, green yard and provide supple ground for growing perennials, annuals, vegetables, or whatever greenscape you choose to plant. Use your imagination! The shape, size, and location of a landscape bed is really up to you. In the project shown here, you’ll learn how to create a landscape bed with curved edges by using a garden hose to outline the bed shape before you break ground. This bed features plastic edging, which is installed before amending soil.
