I just had my yard aerated two days ago and the temperatures went from 70 to 45 degrees. Before I had the lawn aerated I raked up the leaves. Now since the lawn was aerated my neighbors leaves have blown over in my lawn. Is it two late in the season to plant grass seeds? If so, can I just spread the seeds directly on the leaves? Or would it be in my best interest to wait until early spring 2012?

Each time you mow, do it in a different direction. If you always cut your lawn using the same pattern, your grass learns which direction it’s being cut from and begins to lean in the direction you mow. By varying the mowing pattern, you help avoid forming ruts in the lawn. Plus, grass will stand up nice and tall since it will be mowed from all different directions.

More services are offering eco-friendly alternatives to standard lawn care. These services utilize organic or natural treatments for fertilizing grass. This has the added advantage of making the lawn child and pet-friendly because the compounds in the fertilizer contain fewer harmful chemicals and synthetic elements. They also use more environmentally friendly equipment or offer to compost lawn waste, keeping it out of landfills and making good use of the nutrients derived from organic sources. These services may also share tips for how to reduce water usage while maintaining a healthy lawn.


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.

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.
1. The Native Bees: Many of North America’s 3500-plus species of native bees need a place to spend the winter that’s protected from cold and predators. They may hunker down under a piece of peeling tree bark, or they may stay tucked away in the hollow stem of a bee balm plant or an ornamental grass. Some spend the winter as an egg or larvae in a burrow in the ground. All native bees are important pollinators, and when we remove every last overwintering site by cutting everything down and completely cleaning up the garden, we’re doing ourselves no favor. We need these bees, and our gardens can provide them with much-needed winter habitat.
One other benefit is that there's a feeling of freedom that comes with using cordless electric mowers. Dragging around the cords of corded electric mowers is a nuisance. It’s also potentially hazardous, with the potential of accidentally running over the cord with the mower. Fortunately, "electric" is no longer synonymous with cumbersome cords. The new cordless mowers are safer and more flexible.

Gas-powered rotary lawn mowers can be divided into two categories: walk-behind rotary mowers and riding mowers / lawn tractors. The walk-behind rotary lawn mowers can further be classified according to whether they’re push-type lawn mowers or self-propelled. Purchase price varies greatly between these types of rotary lawn mowers, with riding mowers / lawn tractors being the most expensive, followed by self-propelled mowers. The push-type mowers are the least expensive because they require you to provide the muscle to make them move.
Weed seeds are especially hard to remove because they are easily spread by wind, animals, garden tools and water. They can also remain dormant for years before starting to grow. The usual response to weeds is spraying herbicides but can be dangerous for your plants, pets and children. Along the same lines are leaves that have to be removed every year before the winter starts. Otherwise you can have dead spots and patches. You can control those patches with chemicals but run into problems. Leaf removal is crucial in environmental control of weeds as well, as they can kickstart their growth. Some essentials tools for leaf removal include:
