Humans aren’t the only ones who experience stress. Have you ever stopped to think about the life of your lawn? Every day, the sun beams down on the grass and beat up on it. People constantly walk all over it. As weeds grow, they try to take over the soil and choke out the healthy grass. Yes, as you can see, your lawn has to put up with a lot in order to live and look good.

With that being said, there are some easy steps you can take in order to help your lawn endure the stress of the summer. Now keep in mind the following factors that cause your lawn to become stressed. These factors are the hot summer heat, heavy foot traffic, dry weather from the lack of rain, weeds, and bugs.

One of the biggest ways you can help your grass is by reducing the foot traffic. What exactly is “foot traffic” you may wonder? Have you ever noticed how mail carriers always walk through a home owner’s lawn? Maybe you’ve caught kids running through your lawn playing kick ball or wrestling. Do you let your dog run around in your grass? All these scenarios are referred to as “Foot Traffic”. When you walk on grass that has been well-watered, the blades of grass will just spring right back up. If the lawn was dry, though, the grass will stay down, possibly becoming damaged. Also, the heavy traffic throughout the lawn will cause the soil to compact. Then air will not get to the roots of the grass.

One of the biggest ways you can help your grass is by reducing the foot traffic.

When mowing your lawn, be sure to keep the blade on your mower sharp and high. Dull blades will shred the grass, so more moisture would be lost. Clean cut grass will hold onto more moisture, which is, of course, more beneficial to your lawn. Your lawn would also turn brown and look very dull if the tips of the grass were shredded. Most of the different grass types do better when they’re cut high, so be sure to set your lawn mower on one of the higher settings. Taller grass will grow deeper roots, and deeper roots can reach moisture that’s further down in the soil. In order to save your time and money, be sure not to feed your lawn when it is stressed out. A stressed lawn will not grow. At all. Therefore, feeding the grass won’t really help much. Instead, make sure the grass is fed before the hot, dry weather arrives. Then, once the weather cools down and rain returns, feed it again to help your lawn recover quicker. When it comes to watering your lawn, it is best that you take care of that in the mornings.The most efficient times in the morning to do this is between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m. The reason for this is because your grass will retain more moisture and not lose any to evaporation. You’ll also give your lawn time to dry off before nightfall. You do not want to water your lawn in the evening because you will cause the grass to become diseased. With that being said, please make sure you water in the mornings. Half an inch twice a week or 1 inch a week should keep your lawn moisturized and refreshed.

JustMy Home Ideas: Accent Wall

JustMy Home Ideas: Accent Wall

By: Jerome Robinson

This was one of my first DIY projects.  I wanted a accent wall for my bedroom and I wanted it to make a statement.  Not sure what the statement is that I ended up with, but I love it.  I will walk you through it step by step, or you can email me and I will come and do it for you.  Not for free, but I will do it.  Email justmycities@outlook.com!

You can use whatever colors you want.  My suggestion is three very different colors to create a bold contrast.  I used a lite grey base paint from Stewart Brothers Hardware in Bartlett.  Benjamin Moore premium eggshell interior paint and primer Silver Lining is the base coat.  The rest of the room is painted in this color as well.  I have to plug Mark Streeter at this point.  Mark owns Titan Group LLC Roofing and Painting Company!  Mark did an amazing job on the interior painting of the entire house.  But I will talk about interior painting in another post.  I used Silver Streak as the top color.  I painted my little girls furniture in a turquoise color and I used it in my pattern to bring a feel of the entire house into the room.

 

This is what I started with . . .

Next paint the base coat, let it dry for at least 3 or 4 days . . .

Come back and go crazy with painters tape.  Some people say this is hard, for me it was very easy . . .

Next paint in your accent color to create your pop

Then comes your top coat. I was worried at this point that I would not be able to find all the tape for removal. But it turns out, taking the tape off it the coolest thing ever. Lines in the paint just start appearing in different places and going in different directions. It is so cool . . .

Now let's check out the process from start to finish . . .

A big thank you to Mark Streeter for putting up me while I figured out what I wanted to do for this accent wall!
