Landscape Expert Joe Washington Shares Innovative Ways to Use NEW Natural Methods to Improve your Home & Garden Environment
CREATIVE LIVING FROM A GROUNDBREAKING HGTV ORIGINAL
Warmer days and shorter nights mean it's time to get out the garden tools, tidy up the yard and prepare your home for spring and summer use. In fact, creating a beautiful and comfortable outdoor living space has become a national obsession and a billion dollar industry, according to Joe Washington, best known as the Emmy-winning original host of HGTV's Groundbreakers.
ADVICE FOR GETTING A BACKYARD IN SHAPE ON A BUDGET
EASY spring cleaning that gets your yard looking clean and spruced up for summer. First, you want to use quality products that do the job right the first time. For example, Zep Commercial Heavy-Duty Foaming Degreaser effectively removes grease, oil and dirt with no scrubbing. It's a professional product that's now available to the rest of us. Unlike liquid degreasers, the foam application gets into tough-to-reach places and stays where you spray it, so it can be used on vertical or uneven surfaces. Even though it's strong enough for bikes, small engines and cars, it can also be used on ovens, grills and any other greasy messes around the home and garden. It's quick, easy and it leaves everything looking like new.

SECRETS FOR CREATING A BEAUTIFUL GARDEN
A little known secret is that fish can be an excellent source of essential nutrients like nitrogen, which is critical for plant growth. Alaska Fish Fertilizers, an all-purpose deodorized fish emulsion, are a highly effective, natural organic alternative. They are certified organic by the Organic Materials Review Institute. The nutrient rich fish plant food enriches the soil and enhances the strength and vigor of all types of plants. These fertilizers stimulate micro-organisms to build soil content, an essential building block for healthy soil, making it ideal for use with indoor and outdoor plants, including vegetables, fruits and herbs.

SUGGESTIONS TO GUARANTEE A GREEN THUMB
To maintain a green thumb, botanical gardening products are a must have. Botanicals feature active ingredients that have been derived or extracted from plants or plant parts; and as such, they can be used as an alternative to synthetic or man-made insecticides. GardenTech Worry Free Insecticides, which feature a special botanical formulation derived from Chrysanthemum flowers, are ideally suited to combat insects that damage fruits, vegetables and ornamentals. The insecticides break down in the environment. Depending on the edible, these insecticides can be applied throughout the growing season, right up until the day before harvest to address “last minute” garden pests.
