Home Depot Partners With Shazam

Watching a television commercial from Home Depot today, I noticed that there was the Shazam logo on it. Shazam is an iphone app that listens to a song, then identifies the artist and name of the song. Naturally they add a link to where to buy the song.

I use Shazam all the time. In fact, 90% of the songs on my iphone came through Shazam. So it was easy to grab the phone and “listen” to the commercial.

Container Gardening Quick Tips

Here are several quick tips for creating a healthy basket or container garden this summer. They are quick and easy to use – so perfect for container gardening.

The first is to use an artificial soil composed mostly of peat moss. Good soils such as Fafard or Pro-Mix use perlite, peat, and other ingredients to produce a soil that will not compact over the summer.

A good design doesn’t just apply to the inside of your home, but also to the outdoors. And, since plants are usually a lot cheaper than furniture, outdoor decorating is definitely also easier on your budget. Here are some helpful ideas.

All space designers such as home interior decorators or landscapers, consider size, texture and color before they come up with a plan. Sizing the place is probably one of the most important things to do. Dwarf plants are wonderful for small areas, but they pretty much disappear in the midst of a perennial border. You will definitely need to look for something a bit bigger if you are considering curb appeal or you’re planning on landscaping your backyard. Every garden should have at least one particularly attractive plant to lure the eye.
