You will also need seeds. I typically only grow arugula, but you can certainly grow a mix of greens. Look for mixes that germinate and sprout at about the same time, as it is important to have uniform growth for your harvest. Mesclun mixes work well or you can make your own mixes by combining your favorite greens. If you are concerned about germination times, grow your greens in separate containers and combine them after harvest.
It can be easy to forget a hose, especially if you usually count on the rain to help to water your lawn. Still, a nice quality hose can go a long way toward keeping your lawn green and pristine. You’ll want to water your lawn once or twice a week when your yard hasn’t seen rain. Thoroughly soaking the grass will help encourage it to grow more aggressive roots and stay healthier. If you don’t want to be outside holding your hose, you can always invest in sprinklers. You can either buy the ones that attach to your hose and rotate around your garden or have an entire sprinkler system installed. They both have their pros and cons, so choose based on your needs.
The most essential piece of equipment you'll need to maintain your lawn is a lawn mower. You can opt for an old-fashioned mower with rotating blades or splurge on a riding mower. Ultimately, your choice of mower is personal and should fit your specific needs. For instance, you probably won’t need a riding mower for a small postage stamp of a yard, or you may want to entertain the thought of getting a mower that can mulch leaves if there are a lot of trees in the area. No matter what kind of mower you get, you'll need to remember to keep its blades sharp at all times.
The building blocks of a natural pool start with the design and must include an aeration system, phytofiltration, and some tiny cleaners in the form of snails, bottom feeders and fish. An aeration system brings oxygen into the water and can be done with a pump or with a waterfall. In a native pond that has occurred naturally, there is inflow from a stream or other source and outflow to a basin, lake or irrigation ditch. This creates a constant supply of fresh oxygenated water. A situated pond doesn't have these benefits and requires a source to bring the oxygen in for plant and animal health. Without proper aeration the pool will become stagnant, a breeding ground for mosquitoes and any life inside will not maintain health.
