I’ll be honest, yard duties around here are owned by my husband. He does the weekly mowing and clean up. We recently put in new grass in our backyard. We used shavings of grass then watered the heck out of it and ta-dah…we had a lawn!
We also had a lot of weeds poking through. One day I sat on our lanai and watched as my husband sat downstairs on our lawn and channeled Mr. Miyagi. There he sat picking weed after weed. He was calm, deep in thought, happy. I thought, I want in.
So the next day while he was out, the kids and I headed downstairs to our yard and started picking the little weeds that had popped up. One by one, we all picked, picked, picked, and we got calm, and in thought and became well, happy!
The yard has since grown in even more and we’re even growing a lemon tree. The other day I worked on my computer, had a tea playdate with my daughter and tired out our yellow lab Duke, all in our yard. It’s our new little place to make memories, be calm and be happy.
That is why I am so excited and jumped at the chance to work with Home Depot on their The Home Depot Spring DIY program. It’s the perfect opportunity for me to learn how to do things around the yard and get even more in on the zen movement my husband has been hiding.
If you haven’t checked out the Home Depot’s Garden Club, go give it a whirl. One of the projects I’d love to do is grow some food for the family. I want to start it on my lanai though using raised plant beds. Home Depot’s Garden Club has some great tips plus links to great products which makes it really easy and less intimidating for me.
In addition to garden projects, members of Home Depot’s Garden Club (which is free!) will receive coupons, monthly to-dos for their yard, advice from garden experts and even tips that are regional specific – it’s a one stop resources for your yard…that little place of fun, memories and weed-picking-zen.
