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.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven....

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner....

Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
