No backyard? No problem - the new trend of yardless gardening have enough room to grow and develop roots. A good rule of thumb is to use smaller pots for herbs and larger pots for fruits and vegetables. Next, flip the pot over - does it have a hole in the bottom? Planters should have drainage holes so your plant doesn't get waterlogged.

(BPT) - Backyard or back patio, it's time to get planting, no matter where you live. Yardless gardening is a popular alternative for people short on green space looking to flex (or find) their green thumbs.

Make a container garden

Step three: gear up

Small back patio? Window sill? That's all the space you need for a yardless garden. "You can enjoy a garden, no matter your space or place," says Certified Nursery Consultant Nick Blassman. "It's an easy project to take on in a weekend and can make a big difference in your home."

Step one: pick your plants

Edible plants like basil, oregano, parsley, thyme and rosemary are great choices because they're heavy producers and easy to grow in small spaces. Herbs are healthy options to have on hand when you're chopping, dicing and using fresh herbs in the kitchen. Most herbs come in peat pots made of biodegradable material so if you plant outside, just Visitors to the home show can speak directly to contractors. drop the entire pot in the dirt - there's no plastic to Step two: choose your vessel throw away! Love tomatoes (or ketchup)? Heinz A couple factors to consider when you're looking for introduced Heinz tomato varieties this spring to be grown pots and planters. First, make sure your plant is going to in a container or trained to grow up a wire cage.

spaces that enhance your lifestyle.

Big tools in a small planter equal a potentially disastrous situation. Make sure you've got the right gardening tools for your job - a small spade, trimmers, gloves and a watering can or hose. For less than a dollar each, pick up a couple Fiskars Garden Tools. They feature maneuverable, short handles to make it easy to navigate smaller areas without making a big mess.

Step four: fill 'er up

You want the fertilizer or potting mix that's going to nourish and help your herbs thrive. Choose a potting mix with ingredients like sphagnum peat moss, vermiculite or perlite, and aged compost products to help retain moisture and control the release of water into the plant's roots. It's that easy. You now have a container garden to enjoy, no matter the weather or season.

Tips for a flawless painting project (BPT) - Did you know spring is the best time to sell your home? And now that the housing market is bouncing back, there's never been a better time to do it. But even if you're planning to stay put for the long haul, chances are there are some much-needed touch-ups you could be doing to keep your home in tip-top shape. Adding a new coat of paint is a quick, affordable, and possibly the most impactful way to get your project done. Prep, prime and primp Misusing color can be a surefire way to turn people off from your home. For a more inviting look that nearly everyone can enjoy, opt for neutral paint colors. A subtle beige, slight grey or even white can do the trick. First, move furniture out of the room and place drop cloths to protect the floor. Remove any picture frames, outlet covers and wall decor. Then gently scrub the walls with a mild detergent and water mixture using a soft sponge to remove any dirt, grime or lint. Don't forget to prime your walls before applying color to ensure the best end-results. Paint like a pro For an ultra-smooth finish, try a premium microfiber roller cover, available in 9-inch lengths and varying nap thickness. They work great with any kind of paint. When applying, start at the top and work your way down. You'll want to fill the well of your roller tray with paint, dip the roller in half-way and then roll it back onto the tray's angled platform to remove excess paint. This will reduce dripping and improve overall paint cover. Use your roller cover to make an overlapping "W" pattern in a 2-foot by 2-foot area; then fill in and repeat. For smaller interior paint projects or tight spaces, a mini roller is versatile, lightweight and can quickly and easily deliver a perfect finish with smooth rolling action. These combined features make them the ideal applicator for a variety of projects like painting doors and cabinets, to freshening up tables, chairs and even bedroom furniture. Keep your color conviction If you're still feeling deprived of color after your painting project is complete, never fret. Try incorporating fun accent pieces in your favorite colors - think lamps, frames, pillows and rugs. You can even include larger focal pieces like royal blue armchairs or a patterned couch to make a bolder statement. Keep the overall aesthetics neutral and inviting while enhancing them with a few sight-provoking embellishments. If your end goal is to get your home sold, consider these minor improvements a step in the right direction.
