Win big for the birds the Blueberry Pie Coneflower or Crab Apple Bird Feeder by Desert Steel - 2 winners!
In a perfect world....all the color in your garden would derive from flowers. A bright and bold mix of annuals and perennials staggered to reveal the creme de la creme of gardens. But it's not a perfect world. Right?! I find that I like supplementing my garden beds with decor that satisfies my creative instincts and need for color. Unlike flowers, decor requires no care or extra effort. Decor doesn't die from lack of water. For this reason alone, I appreciate the unique, hand-fashioned sculptures of Desert Steel that step in when my flowers fade. Their eye-popping bird feeders lure in a crowd of colorful feathered friends adding depth and dimension to the landscape. So I'm thrilled to introduce you to the standing Blueberry Pie Coneflower (ARV $70) and the hanging Crab Apple bird feeder (ARV $40) from Desert Steel. And you nailed it, this means two winners today!!! To enter, like the Raise Your Garden Facebook page and share this post or sign up for our newsletter. For two entries, do both.

Trends in fashion change like lightening. This is why I never bother buying new clothes, even from Target. By the time I catch on to what's en vogue....it's already obsolete. Think skinny jeans and cold shoulder shirts. And don't even get me started on fidget spinners! Home decor trends move at a slower pace and gardening even more so. In fact, I bet many of you didn't even think there were trends in gardening. The truth. There is! 2018 is going to be a fun and exciting year for those of us who like to tinker with plants. I have all sorts of projects lined up for this spring and summer to spiff up my lawn and landscape. Not to mention my indoor space. Isn't it time for a terrarium? Buzzwords abound. This is what the future holds for us. How about you?

Winter is a beautiful season and it provides ample opportunity for you to enjoy it to the fullest. But while the snow might look stunning on your lawn, it creates havoc on your garden. As soon as the snow melts, you will realize that your carefully maintained lawn is not as manicured and fresh as it was before. Your turf faces the most damaging problems likes snow mold, voles, crown hydration, winter desiccation, and more. It is essential to create an efficient and successful recovery plan to help your lawn get back in shape.

To alleviate the stress in your life there are three options: 1.) Get a cat 2.) Fly a kite or 3.) Acquire a Weed Dragon tool from Flame Engineering to root out your problems. Literally. Because that's what the Weed Dragon is designed to do. Blow the weeds right down to their roots and have a marvelous time at it. Weeding. By. Hand. What an outdated practice! Who wants to bend down and yank weeds all day? Most mind-boggling? This fire-breathing torch is equally useful during the winter. Picture all that snow and ice and then see yourself blasting through it with this tool. It's a product that you'll use year-round. No need to store for the dreaded off-season. Big win. That's why I'm thrilled for you and the chance of winning either the Weed Dragon or Mini Weed Dragon from Flame Engineering valued at $82 and $53 respectively.
