Let’s face it: your lawn gets walked on repeatedly. Whether it’s while mowing, the kids playing around or just guests walking up to your front door, all of this action on the lawn can have significant effects on the health and appearance of your grass. Hence, it is vital that the soil continues to receive the proper nutrients in order to keep it healthy and strong.
A perfect way to keep your lawn aerated and healthy is a pair of lawn areator shoes. These sandals easily fit over your shoes, and the long spikes on the bottom will penetrate deep into the soil. This creates air pockets in compacted soil, meaning there’s more room for the soil to breathe. In turn, it’s easier for water and nutrients to reach down into the roots of the soil, ensuring a healthy lawn.
It’s a pretty cool product, and it’s something that isn’t time consuming to do. You could even strap these sandals on your feet while you’ve got your mower out. Essentially, it would be doing two jobs at once. Perfect.
Rain water is a thing that many don’t realize can be saved and used for many different things. Think about it – rain water that falls off your roof typically just goes to waste. However, you can do something about it. By purchasing a Rain Water Diverter, you can channel the rain into a rain barrel, or reroute the rain water to anything else you feel might need watering, such as plants, ponds, areas of the lawn that don’t receive enough sun and even fountain basins.
A nice feature to this rain water diverter is that it can be flipped between on and off positions, meaning you can really regulate how and when you use the water. In addition, you can use it to prevent runoff and the erosion that occurs with it. Basically, it’s a way to preserve the sanctity of your lawn or garden and conserve and reuse a natural resource while doing so.
This manual water pump works quickly and efficiently. Even if you were on a sinking ship, you would want to have one of these babies aboard. It can crank out 40 to 90 gallons of water per minute, and sets up quickly as well. You don’t need any priming, and there’s no starter plug or spark plugs. Plus, it moves high volumes of water at low RPMs.
Think about this manual water pump, and then think about cleaning out a rain barrel. You could accomplish the task in no time. This can help you a lot also when you are gardening or doing lawn work in places that might be hard to reach when using a traditional water pump…forget about extra extension cords, ventilation or anything of the like. Just some natural power from your arm, and you are good to go. Truly a great find.
Save your lawn from annoying mosquitoes and other assorted pests.

The treatments for the lawn are all environmentally friendly, and there are different treatments to choose from. It’s just a simple change of a bottle if you are looking for controlling a different pest. Or, it can be also used to apply fertilizer to the lawn.
So let’s get this straight, there is an easy way to either control pests, or to fertilize the lawn? Count me in!
Finally – someone has made a rain barrel that can really look great on the side of your house. This Rain Barrel is made to look like an old fashioned oak barrel. You can sit it on the side of the house nicely and catch any rain water that may fall. Made of plastic, this barrel blocks any light out – so you don’t have to worry about moisture, algae, and bacteria growing.
If you are looking to upgrade your rain barrel and add a touch of style and class to your lawn, then this is right up your alley. It will nicely sit out of the way, and will prove to be beneficial in the long run.
All most gardeners require for watering their plants and grass is a good quality hose. Five-ply garden hoses with brass fittings are best. With a hose, you can use a variety of attachments to water just about anything.
A garden hose reel will help you keep your hose tidy and kink-free.
To water plants and grass in a small yard, you don’t really need an expensive sprinkler system if you don’t already have one installed. For a small patch of grass, a hose with a sprinkler attachment will work fine. However, most homeowners with decent sized lawns like the convenience of a sprinkler system, so you should consider installing one if you don’t already have one.
