Water plants effectively and efficiently by testing different irrigation methods and learning how well your soil holds water. Don’t judge when to water based on wilting leaves. Some plants naturally wilt under the midday sun, and plants also wilt when soil is too wet. Before watering, shove your finger into soil as far as you can and pull it out. If it comes out dry and clean or you can’t even shove it into soil, you need to water. If soil sticks to your finger or feels moist, don’t water. When watering, deliver water directly to soil to reduce the amount lost to evaporation. Soaker hoses, drip irrigation, micro-irrigation and bubblers all deliver water directly to soil. If using a traditional sprinkler, make sure it’s not watering surrounding grass, sidewalk or driveway.
Moroccan tile transforms an everyday staircase into a beautiful, bohemian display. At the top of the stairs, a woven wall hanging accentuates the well-traveled look and adds a dose of texture to the room.
White, Open Plan Kitchen From Sarah Sees Potential
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, Sarah turned a cramped main floor into a gorgeous, open plan kitchen, dining and living space. A dividing wall was removed and converted to a gourmet kitchen island with extra seating and storage. Antique white corbels and vintage wedding cake fixtures add a touch of elegance while a fun mosaic tile backsplash lends youthful charm to the bright space.
