How Gardening Can Wash Away the Winter Blues

By: Dave Berning

With winter upon us, we typically feel a little down in the dumps. We may even complain of having Cabin Fever. So this is the perfect time to start preparing your lawn and garden supply needs. After all, there is no better feeling than being outside tending to your lawn and garden on a warm spring day.

First you need a plan of action. What is the condition of your garden tools? It's time to take stock of all your gardening equipment and see what kind of condition they are in. Take a look at your garden hoes, leaf rakes, shovels and spades. Do you need to sharpen your garden tools? What is the condition of the handles? Are they ready to use or do they need to be replaced?

Next, your lawn and garden irrigation needs. What is the condition of your water hoses, nozzles and sprinklers? Have you given any thought to a drip irrigation system for your flowerbeds and vegetable gardens? This is a great way to save you time and help you reduce your water bill.

Now that you have a list of your needs, it is time to put your plan into action. A good place to start is by visiting your local home and garden center or go to a home and garden show. These are great places to get ideas and to see what is new in the gardening market. But be careful, you may have the urge to buy something, so stop and think. It's best if you take notes on the things you see and like, then go home and compare your notes to your current inventory of lawn and garden supplies.

Now that you have done your research, it's time to go shopping! Finding the right gardening tools, water hoses, lawn sprinklers and drip irrigation systems may take some time. So be patient and have fun with it. Keep in mind that quality is the key word here. You may pay more for quality gardening tools upfront, but in the long run it will save you time and money.

This is also a good time to think about your spring and summer relaxation needs. A nice garden bench or a lawn swing will give you a place to relax from your gardening chores and enjoy the fruits of your labor. You may even want to consider some garden accessories such as a decorative windmill, wind chimes, bird baths and bird feeders. These lawn and garden accessories can make your outdoor living space a wonderful place to retreat to after a long work day.

In conclusion, there is no better time than these cold winter days to start planning your outdoor spring and summer gardening needs. This will help boost your winter spirits and get rid of that Cabin Fever.

Rogue Triangle Garden Hoe: Does it Work?

Rogue Triangle Garden Hoe: Does it Work?

By: Lauren Keith

The new $35 Rogue Triangle Garden Hoe is definitely not your average garden tool.  Its different design promises to make gardening a whole lot easier.  I head to Scott County, Missouri to test it out.

"You lean down a little on the backstroke," says David Diebold as he uses the Rogue.

This kind of motion makes it look like David Diebold is "vacuuming" in his garden, but he's actually using it to get rid of weeds!

"It's not even in a class of ordinary garden hoes.  It's all by itself.  I haven't seen anything like it," said Diebold.

From the way you use it.... to its design, this garden hoe actually looks like a spear. It promises to make yanking out those dreaded weeds much eaiser.  You simply scoot the Rogue under the plant and clip away at the weed.

"I can go right under the squash, pick out a weed, and it doesn't even know we're there.  The only thing you can do is pull the weed normally, but this tool eliminates that," says Diebold.

Normally, you'd use a regular garden hoe and chop away, but again, not with this Rogue Garden Hoe.  David says it even acts like a tiller.

So far so good, as I watch David snap up a weed, rather than chop it.  In fact, he uses it so much in his own garden, he decided to start selling it at his orchard store.

"I've used a hoe all my life and I've never seen anything as good as this," he says.

He also admits he's now biased. So, he sent me with the Rogue hoe to find any local gardener I could.  One morning, I spotted Robert Harris hard at work in the Fountain Street Community Garden in Cape Girardeau. Let's see what he thinks.

"I'm not used to working with a hoe like this," he says examining the Rogue.

He pushes it back and forth, just like a vacuum sweeper, and gets impressed as it de-roots the weeds.

"It worked-I can't believe it!" he says. "That's the bad thing about the other garden hoes. You can't get up underneath the plant.  You just have to get down on your hands and knees and pull.  But this one here, I can go right underneath it.  I like it for that," says Robert.

However, he doesn't like bending his back as much to use the Rogue, but says this is still much better than that chopping he'd normally do with a regular garden hoe. It's definitely a lot less effort with this.

"I'd definitely give it a grade "A," says Robert.

Ok, if you're looking for a garden hoe that's ideal for pulling weeds, then you might try the Rogue Triangle Garden Hoe.  This new, $35 garden tool, without a doubt, sprouts up an "A" on this Does it Work test.  

Plan Now for Next Summer Irrigation Needs

Irrigation kit

With the temperatures dropping and leaves falling, it’s hard to think about next years hot dry summer days. Yet this is the perfect time to start planning your lawn and gardening irrigation needs for next season.

Your plan should include looking at your current lawn and garden irrigation tools you may have stored away. Pull them off the garage shelve and see if then need to be repaired or replace. What’s your garden water hose look like? What is the shape of the hose and fittings? Do you have enough garden hose to reach all parts of your lawn and garden? What is your plan for your irrigating your garden? Thinking of a drip irrigation system or sprinkler system?  What’s the condition of your lawn sprinkler? Do you have water timers to conserve water and save you money?


Before you go and buy everything you think you need, let’s look at 10 ways you can plan your lawn and garden irrigation needs. These 10 ways can also help you conserve both water and time and save you money.

Ten Ways You Can Plan Your Lawn and Garden Irrigation Needs:

1) The layout of your garden is important to saving water usage. When setting the footprint of your garden, think about where the water will run off. Running water naturally into a garden bed will keep more water in your garden.

2) Group plants according to their water needs. This allows for a more efficient watering usage.

3) Use good mulch and layer it thick. This can prevent up to 70% water loss.

4) Water the highest parts of your garden first to utilize any run off.

5) Dig a small trench around trees to hold water and use a digital water timer to shut off water and stop excessive usage

6) Water roots, not leaves with drip a irrigation system

7) Water lawns only when needed and early in the morning to stop evaporation loss and use a water timer to reduce over watering

8) Aerate soil to allow for more penetration.

9) Cut lawns higher. Taller grass holds water better.

10) Select drought resistant grasses and plants.


Now take action and get the lawn and garden irrigation supplies that will work best for you and your watering needs. Most importantly, look for quality products when looking for garden hoses, drip irrigation systems, lawn sprinklers, and water timers. Pay a little more now and save both time and money for the long run.

In conclusion, there is no better time than fall and  winter to get ready for next  summer lawn and garden irrigation needs ready. Plus there is plenty of time to find what you need and what works best for your lawn and garden.
