Updating Your Garden: Where People Go Wrong


It’s common to want to enhance your garden at this time of the year. After all, summer is almost here, so it’s the perfect time to give it a boost. At the end of the day, you are going to spend a lot of time outside in the sunshine in the months to come! However, you might be surprised how many people make mistakes when it comes to sorting out their garden. And then they have to live with this regret over the coming months. Therefore, here is where people go wrong when updating their garden so you can avoid these mistakes at all costs.

Not researching about different plants first

It’s easy to go a bit plant crazy when you head to the nursery. After all, you might spot beautiful plants you think would look great in your garden. But while spontaneity is good, you do need to do some research before investing in any old plant for your garden. After all, you don’t want to end up with something which requires a ton of maintenance over the following months. Or something which could be harmful to kids or pets! After all, you don’t want to feel guilty if they get sick. Therefore, you need to ask for more information about the specific plant before you go to the till. And you should be able to find some more information online to ensure you make the right decision on plants for your yard. That way, you won’t be left living with regret.


Not hiring a professional landscaper

When you want to update your garden, it’s easy to go down the route of doing it yourself. After all, you might not want to splash out the cash on a professional. But if you are doing big updates, it can sometimes be worth it. After all, if you lay the paving down yourself, it might end up going wrong. And you could end up with an uneven patio. Also, you might end up making the garden look overcrowded. After all, you might not have the best skills to landscape it properly. Therefore, you should hire a professional landscaper who can ensure the garden looks fantastic. And before signing on the dotted line, make sure you read online about the top 10 qualities to seek in a landscaping company. That way, you know you are picking the right one for the job.


Not making it family friendly

It’s also important to make sure the garden is perfect for your family. After all, a lot of people make the mistake of thinking more about how it looks rather than the safety aspect. But then if something happens to their kid, they are left living with regret. Therefore, you need to make sure that the features in the garden are family friendly. For example, if you put a pond in the yard, ensure there is a fence around it to keep your little ones safe. And you need to ensure there is a good fence in the garden to ensure privacy for the sake of your family.


And remember to think about features which will be good for winter too. After all, you want a garden which you can use all year round.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
