We’ve been cooped up and sick with cabin fever. The only cure is a few hours of sunshine three to five times a day or as needed for happiness. This is a great time to unplug from the Internet and get your hands dirty, but before you do, the age of information is at your fingertips. Now is the time to use all your gadgets to help you plan and purchase the extraordinary garden or landscape of your dreams.
Spelunking the Internet has provided rare and unique versions of common lawn and garden plants to give your yard that little something extra you can be proud of.
Just know that if you choose something not hardy to your zone, it’s probably not going to last longer than one season.
Ahh, spring is beautiful minus the dreaded spring cleaning. Use Internet shopping to find the best-rated steam cleaners and pressure washers. I own a small business, and we support buying local, but being an informed shopper can save you from buying an expensive lemon. The most expensive choice is not always the best, nor is the cheapest item the worst. Use Internet reviews to your advantage and save time and money.
You finally made it outside!! Now is the time to have your computer professionally cleaned. Make the most of your time outside by sending your computer to the shop. Just as you have your cars, boats, jet ski, and lawnmowers serviced, servicing your computers yearly can save you money and trouble in the long run. Have a professional review your security software and clean the operating system. It’s the very best preventative maintenance. M! April/May 2014
