How to make the transition from landscaper to hardscaper.

| |

Recently I had a great opportunity to talk with Chris, owner of prohardscaper.com. This is a new forum which focuses specifically on hardscaping.

Q: Hi Chris, can you tell us a little bit of background on you and what got you to start this new hardscape forum?

A: “My name is Chris or Cgland as some of you may know. I’ve been running a landscaping biz for about 10 years now and I love it! We mainly specialize in Hardscaping (patios, walkways, driveways, walls, pool decks, etc.) You get the point! Anyway, over the last few years I have realized a big deficiency in the online information available to hardscapers as well as people looking to get into the hardscaping biz. So what I did was create a website/forum dedicated to the hardscaping industry. It’s chock full of information! Tips, pics, tricks, as well as discussions dealing with Everything that encompasses hardscaping.”

Whether trying to disconnect from technology, reconnect with nature or simply wind down from the everyday bustle, more of us are doing so in our new living rooms-the backyard.

According to the American Institute of Architects, the outdoor living trend continues to gain traction as Americans invest in upscale landscaping and outdoor amenities. In fact, this trend has become a way of life for many of us. We're looking to bring the indoors out and to do so with as little fanfare as possible. In other words, we want a beautiful space, without the upkeep.

If you are getting in on outdoor living, a good place to start is with a solid fence. More than an outdoor accessory, a well-built fence is the best way to gain a little privacy and define your personal outdoor space.

Let’s talk about the outdoor storage shed. There are several things that the buyer needs to know about these structures before making a final purchase. Doing a little homework will help you save money and find the perfect outdoor storage shed for your property.

One thing to realize before purchasing an outdoor storage shed is the building codes for your area. Some places have size limits for additional outdoor structures. There are building ordinances in the majority of locations. Check with a building code inspector or with someone familiar with buildings before purchasing one and placing it on your land. You do not later want to have to move it because it did not meet building spec requirements.

When choosing how to pickle or what pickle recipe’s you would like to try, there are a number of things you want to keep in mind. One of those things is which canning method you would like to use. Home canning is a very simple process that can be done in two ways: pressure canning, or water-bath canning. Pressure canning is a process that requires a pressure canner, which can be often times, be expensive. You may however be able to find a cheap one with a little bit of hunting through garage sales or flea markets. Water-bath canning, on the other hand, can be done using only a couple of simple tools. We will assume that you will be using a water-bath canning method. The following article will explain this particular method.

Firstly, of course you will need a water-bath canner. You must make sure it is deep enough to hold enough water to submerge your canning jars by at least 1 inch. You will also need your canning jars, screw-on bands, and canning lids. It is the much-less-expensive, tried-and-true way of canning. It is a way of preserving hundreds of foods, including salsa, jam, jelly, pickled fruits and vegetables, as well as relish for hundreds of years. It is a great canning method for beginners, or avid canners.

They can be used in so many ways, in a salad or to make a sauce for pasta and a myriad of other ways in your culinary pursuits. Sadly in some places tomatoes are being priced at three dollars per pound or more. Fortunately, everyone can grow their own tomatoes, even people that live in apartments. The answer is to grow a tomato container garden. You can grow them on a patio or balcony or in a bright sunny room in your home.

The number one essential is sun. Tomatoes require a lot of light and will not thrive without out it. The materials you will need to gather for your tomato container garden are simple. You will need containers that are about five gallons in size. Only plant one tomato plant per pot. You will need soil, tomato seedlings and stakes or a wire cage to hold the plant upright. String, or products called twist-tie or sturdy-tie will be needed to tie the plant to the stakes or cages. You will need a plastic tray for drainage; good drainage is essential to the health of your tomato container garden. Last need on the list is fertilizer.
