No matter how much experience you have as a gardener, mistakes happen to everyone. Some gardening mistakes are actually avoidable. Below, youíll find some of the most common gardening mistakes and how to stay clear of them. Next time around that you decide to plant, youíll have an even greener thumb than you did the season before. 


You Planted Too Early


When the springtime hits, itís easy to feel eager to plant and get your crops going. Planting too early without proper grow cloths or warm enough temperatures can be completely detrimental to anything that is trying to grow. 


Watering Too Much Or Two Little


There is a finite amount of water thatís required for plants to thrive. The general rule is for plants to receive about an inch of water per week. Plants that have not been watered enough will show certain signs including yellowing leaves and wilting leaves. Any fruits that are produced will be deformed. Be sure that you make up for the deficit of water during dry spells that occur by watering accordingly.   


Plants that have been overwatered can also cause yellowing leaves. You donít want your water to pool or cause puddles in the garden. If this happens, youíll need to add a bit more organic matter to the soil itself. 


Not Planting In A Bright Enough Place


Itís a basic scientific principle that plants need sunlight to grow properly. If you have planted things in the shade, they may not thrive. If you donít have a sunny spot to plant your garden, try using portable gardening containers that you can move around. Shoot for at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day for your plants.       


Not Weeding


Weeds can obviously choke your crops, sucking moisture and food away from the plants. If you donít actively work to eliminate weeds, your plants will suffer greatly. Eliminate weeds as soon as you spot them. Allowing one weed to flourish is to allow them all to take over! Mulching can be a great start in helping to keep weeds away. If any weeds are found after the mulch has been put down, be sure to move them promptly. 


Planting Too Much


If you plant too much, space can become a problem. Focus on planting what you and your family like to eat and will actually use. This problem comes down to a matter of preference and taste. You donít want to spend a ton of time gardening just to realize that  youíve completely wasted your efforts. 


Keep in mind that thereís always something new to learn when it comes to gardening. Know that no matter what level of gardener you are mistakes are inevitable but not completely unavoidable.

You may often walk into your bedroom and feel like something is missing or off about the room. Your bedroom should be one of the most peaceful rooms in the house. Unfortunately, due to our 21st-century lifestyle, the bedroom often carries the same kind of stress that other places do. We forget that bedrooms are made for sleeping! The way you decorate your bedroom has a lot to do with the way the room makes you feel. Here, weíll give you some tips for decorating your bedroom in a way that brings you serenity. We promise after you follow these tips that youíll be on your way to a more restful, relaxed nightís sleep! As a bonus, if youíre getting ready to move, these tips work really well when it comes to staging a bedroom for a potential home sale! Keep The Room Clean This tip seems fairly obvious. However, as life gets busy, we tend to throw things in corners and pile up clothes. Clutter in itself causes stress. Keep your bedroom organized. Make sure that everything has a place. When we see clutter in a space, our minds can be cluttered as well, and thatís anything but relaxing! Donít Add Too Many Elements To Your Room Your bedroom should be used for sleeping. There should be a bed and a minimal amount of other ďthingsĒ within the room. Keep desks and other work related items out of your bedroom in order to make the room a stress-free zone. Your bedroom should serve its purpose- a place for sleeping. A reading chair or love seat may be nice if you have the space for it, but donít go overboard with extra elements in your bedroom. Stay Away From Bright And Bold Bedding If thereís one room in the house where bright and bold wonít work, itís the bedroom. Stay away from bedding with heavy patterns and bright colors. If your bedding is too busy, it will cause you inadvertent stress. This is the opposite of what you want in your bedroom. Shut Off Electronics And Keep Them Away From The Bedroom As much as every single one of us is attached to our phones these days, the light from your phone doesnít help you sleep. Try to find a place in your room far away form the bed to keep your phone, if you must put your phone in the room. Also, keep televisions and computers out of your bedroom as well. The bright lights are a distraction from getting restful sleep. Also, just the presence of these items can cause some stress, as they remind you of less-than relaxing things. Now, get to decorating your bedroom the right way and have pleasant dreams!

Dealing with a lot of stress as you try to sell your house? You're not alone. Fortunately, there are many great ways to minimize stress during the home selling process, including: 1. Prepare Before You List Your Home on the Real Estate Market A diligent home seller will prepare for the best and worst case scenarios, ensuring he or she is ready to deal with any challenges that may arise. For instance, you should conduct extensive research before you list your house on the real estate market. By doing so, you can determine a fair price for your residence and may be able to reduce the need for potentially stressful negotiations with prospective homebuyers. Don't forget to get your home appraised, too. A home appraisal will enable you to find out what your home is worth and discover ways to boost the value of your house as well. 2. Try to Focus on the Positives Unfortunately, when it comes to selling your home, it's often easy to see lots of negatives. From homebuyers who seemingly demand the world from you to the stress associated with keeping your home pristine in the event that you need to host a home showing on short notice, these negatives can add up quickly. And as such, they can cause a tremendous amount of stress. As a home seller, it's important to focus on the positives of your day-to-day life and use these positives to outweigh the negatives frequently associated with selling a home. Whether it's spending time with family members and friends or simply going for a walk on your own, there are many stress-relieving activities that you can enjoy any time you choose. Try to find stress-relieving activities that make you smile, and you should have no trouble maintaining a positive outlook as you try to sell your residence. 3. Work with a Dependable Real Estate Professional Why should you leave your home sale to chance? Instead, work with a reliable real estate agent, and you can minimize stress throughout the home selling process. Many real estate agents are available, and you should try to find one who will collaborate with you during every stage of the home selling journey. Ideally, the perfect real estate agent will possess extensive industry knowledge that makes him or her qualified to sell your residence. You also should strive to find a real estate professional who understands your wants and needs and will stand by your side in both good times and bad. Perhaps most important, your real estate agent should be ready to answer any concerns or questions that you may have at any time. Thus, this professional will be able to help you relieve stress and streamline the process of selling your house. There's no reason to let stress get the best of you as you try to generate interest in your home. But with the aforementioned tips, you'll be able to alleviate stress throughout the home selling process.
