Delaying your garden’s clean up until the spring is a boon for all the creatures living there. Instead of heading out to the garden with a pair of pruning shears and a rake this fall, wait until next April. By then, all the critters living there will be emerging from their long winter nap. And even if they haven’t managed to get out of bed by the time you head out to the garden, most of them will still manage to find their way out of a loosely layered compost pile before it begins to decompose. Do Mother Nature a big favor and save your garden clean up until the spring. And, when spring does arrive, please use these pollinator-friendly tips for cleaning up the garden the right way.
After spreading grass seed, it’s best to wait for your new grass to get off to a great start before mowing. New grass seedlings can be cut for the first time when they've reached mowing height, which varies by grass type. No matter what type of grass you have, do not cut more than the top ⅓ of the grass blades. A dramatic cutting can shock and stress new grass plants, slowing down the growth of your new lawn.
Hi Scott, although many people think the pH level is wrong when you have moss growing in a lawn. The most common reason for moss growing is a shaded damp area. Without a constantly moist soil, moss will not grow no matter how hard you try. Increasing sunlight, thinning out trees or large shrubs above the moss area and letting the area dry out between watering will help the grass grow and keep down the moss. You will almost never see moss in a sunny area of the lawn no matter what the pH is.
A budget-friendly option is hiring independent contractors, such as neighborhood teens who cut grass for a small fee during the summer. These individuals will generally have their own equipment and transportation and typically charge lower rates. They do not have as much experience or offer the range of services that lawn care professionals do. The quality of work is extremely varied, although word-of-mouth will often let homeowners know who provides the best service. As a final cautionary note, independent contractors that do not have insurance can be a liability to the homeowner if they are injured on the job. Homeowners should be familiar with their own insurance policies and weigh the possible risks and rewards carefully prior to hiring a neighborhood teen or other uninsured person to mow their grass.

Dallas' skyline contains several buildings over 700 feet in height. Although some of Dallas' architecture dates from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, most of the notable architecture in the city is from the modernist and postmodernist eras. Iconic examples of modernist architecture include Reunion Tower, the JFK Memorial, I. M. Pei's Dallas City Hall and Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center. Good examples of postmodernist skyscrapers are Fountain Place, Bank of America Plaza, Renaissance Tower, JPMorgan Chase Tower, and Comerica Bank Tower. Several smaller structures are fashioned in the Gothic Revival style, such as the Kirby Building, and the neoclassical style, as seen in the Davis and Wilson Buildings. One architectural "hotbed" in the city is a stretch of historic houses along Swiss Avenue, which contains all shades and variants of architecture from Victorian to neoclassical. The Dallas Downtown Historic District protects a cross-section of Dallas commercial architecture from the 1880s to the 1940s.
It is especially recommended that you stick to this rule of thumb in fall (and, to a lesser degree, in spring, but see below). In summer, meanwhile, if can't remember the measurements, err on the side of mowing at a greater height. It is not a bad idea, in fact, to choose one of the higher settings on your lawn mower wheels when the weather starts getting really hot, and just mow at that height until we approach the fall season and the weather starts to cool off a bit.
Before performing any maintenance, cleaning or inspections on your mower, turn it off and remove the ignition / safety key (if equipped). On a gasoline-powered mower, unplug the spark plug wire(s) as instructed in the manual. If you have an electric mower, disconnect if from its power supply. Make sure all blades and moving parts have come to a stop. Follow any pre-maintenance procedures the manufacturer specifies.
