Who says that women could not do DIY projects by themselves? Well there are more and more independent women who actually doing DIY stuff. Actually to do DIY stuff, you don’t have to be strong and powerful..Of course you need a little a bit of power but  that’s not all. Good knowledge about the technical stuff and good supporting tools is the most important thing to learn while doing DIY projects..

I just found something interesting for the ladies; it’s a pink tool box from a French site La Chaise Longue. From the look of it, this tool box has almost everything:

  • 5 screwdriver
  • 1 spirit level
  • 1 hammer
  • 1 wire cutter

For all the ladies who prefer to do DIY projects by themselves but still want to keep your feminine touch, this tool box is probably the right answer…This tool box, moreover, could protect your screwdrivers or your hammer from your husbands..

First thing first, choose strong and solid tree to build such as: oak, beech, maple and hemlock. If you don’t have a big tree in your backyard, don’t force it! You can only build a three house if your tree has a thick branch and strong enough to support the weight of the tree house

Doing gardening can be tricky sometimes. Having a big backyard doesn’t guarantee a successful and correct gardening result. Without careful attention, your plants will die and sometimes we are just unable to uncover the mystery. Basically, you need to understand what’s the cause of it? Your plant can go healthy and your garden can be beautiful more than ever, as long as you know what mistakes all gardeners need to avoid and how to repair it?

There are 8 crucial points to be remembered

1.Chossing the wrong spot for your garden

To find the best spot for your garden, you need to check the quality of the soil first. Make sure the mulch is not too soggy. On the other hand, plant needs morning sunlight as the sun plays a major role in their photosynthesis process.

2.Grow plants without preparing the soil

Soil has different types depends on the region and the temperature. Before starting gardening, check the quality of the soil by using soil testing kit that you can find easily in gardening store.

3. Sloppy plant threatment

Have you ever heard the myth that plants have feelings? Well i do believe that it’s true..In order to avoid stupid mistakes like pulling up flowers instead of weeds, leave your plants in a closed area that prevent contact with the sun, or planting two plants too close with one and another. These mistakes can be costly, plants are very sensitive and they don’t tell when they are hurting or when they are not doing well. So if you love your plants so much, if you want your plant to grow healthy and strong; threat them with care and love because believe it or not, they can feel it..

3. Invasive plants

You need to avoid having invasive plants. If you’re buying plant weeds, look for words that say reseeder and vigorous growth, which often indicate invasive tendencies. These plants have the tendency to grow faster and uncontrollable. Plants like horseradish, English ivy, Mexican feather grass, and spiderwort are known to be invasive in the garden.

4. Protect your plants from destructive wildlife

Garden is the best place to live for different types of wildlife. Some of them can be very harmless or even useful for our flowers and plants like bees and earth worm for example. On the contrary, some wildlife can be dangerous we don’t take precocious attention. Animals like squirrel and raccoons are prone to destroy our plant/veggies/fruits. Caterpillar and other pests are also can menace our garden.

To avoid having your fruit eaten by rodents, try to use fences to protect your plant/trees. Against pests such as aphids, use small amount of pesticides moderately! You can also fight the pests by inviting other anti-pests bugs such as the ladybird.

5. Over-watering

Plants need water that’s for sure but overwatering them is a bad idea. It drowns plants roots, causing them to rot; underwatering, on the other hand, can dehydrate it. You have to know your plants when they need or dont need extra water. Water irrigation system is a solution to control the flow of the water. If you like, using grey water system is also another alternative to have a recycled water controller.
