Fall In Love with Your Backyard

Fall In Love with Your Backyard
Tanya Opetaia

If anyone had a green thumb, I could always count on my Aunty Pisa.  With a smile that could brighten any room, even the tangerine sun was jealous.  A true Superwoman, with such strong Polynesian pride, you could never tell her no, because she would show you that she could do anything she set her mind to.  One of the many things she figured out on her own was how to grow and cultivate a truly magnificent garden of flowers and vegetables.

If she was not indoors laughing with her best friend and husband, our
Uncle Jim, you could always find her tending to the wide arrangement of annuals and perfumed gardenia scattered among their backyard.  Knelt down on her padding with industrial gloves in hand, she would sing so beautifully that the birds would honestly fly closer to try to harmonize with her.  And of course, her contagious smile could be seen painted across her sun kissed face as she worked diligently unearthing her backyard.

With fall in place, I have a hunch, Aunty Pisa would provide us some of these helpful hints to get your backyard Fall ready.

Organize Yourself

Get yourself organized by adding this Timberlake Corner Storage Rack to your garage or laundry room.  With this easy to assemble corner tool rack, it easily fits into corner of any room to add space, holding up to 19 long handled tools. In addition, you can utilize the removable storage bag, equipped with 8 pockets for smaller tools or even work gloves.

Another great tool to help organize yourself is the Timberlake Pure Garden 8-Piece Garden Tool and Tote Set.  It has everything you need to take care of your home gardening projects.  This roomy canvas tote bag includes a pruner, snip, rake, trowel, shovel, spray bottle, and soft wire tie.

Stock Up

Prepare your garden by stocking up on a few garden necessities such as the Honda VersAttach Cultivator Attachment.  This durable, powerful tool serves as a high torque for tackling compact soil and beds.  In addition, this exclusive system is interchangeable with 5 other options such as trimmer, edger, hedge trimmer, pruner and blower.  Designed to take on tough jobs, every VersAttach attachment comes with a handy hook for easy storage.

Family Fun

Evoke your little one’s interest in gardening with the Melissa and Doug Pretty Petals Tote Set. Featuring adorable patterns, this garden tote with woven handles come with plastic tools and spray bottle that allows your kid help you in gardening. This set also comes in handy indoors when your princess is in pretend-play mode. To get the kiddos even more excited about backyard fun, curl up and introduce them to the beloved children’s classic, The Secret Garden Book .  Your children will fall in love with Mary and the beautiful garden they bring to life.

Be Yourself

Show your team spirit and place this Collegiate Stone in your yard to show your Nebraska Cornhusker pride!  This neat garden stone will also look awesome on your front porch when family and friends come over to cheer in unison.

And of course, no garden is complete without a gnome.  Add these fun little guys to your garden and show off your fun side.  You can show your college team pride and place this Iowa Hawkeyes Garden Gnome or this Kansas Jayhawks Garden Gnome in your garden.

Bring On The Warmth

Break out the flannel and warm up with a cozy fire pit.  This Pure Garden Crossweave Fire Pit is the perfect addition to any backyard patio or deck.  Sturdy construction, this pit features a crosswave pattern that will create a stunning effect for you and your guests on a night where the fire is going.

Or enjoy the warmth of campfire heat with this steel contemporary fire pit, Crosley Furniture Monticello Wood Burning Villa Fire Pit.  The mesh guard allows 360 degree viewing providing all around protection.  In addition, clean ups are easy due to the convenient pull-out ash drawer.

And you can’t go wrong with a highly reviewed Weber Performer Deluxe Charcoal Grill.  With its electronic touch -n-go gas ignition system, removable LCD cook timer and built-in thermometer, you cook with ease and precision. Offering a great working space, you can prepare delicious hassel- free dishes on the built-in thermoset work table. Pair your grill, with the Wusthof Trident 4-Piece BBQ Set.  This easy care non-reactive stainless steel set comes with a commercial size perforated paddle, meat fork, sturdy tongs, and two set removable silicone brushes for that Thanksgiving turkey or comfort food.

With these tips, you’ll be able to fall in love with your backyard just before winter is in full effect.  With a little organization, some handy tools, and a little bit of fun, you’ll be ready to embrace your backyard with loved ones just like our beautiful Aunty Pisa did.

And although this Fall will be different this year, you can be certain Aunty Pisa’s beautiful memory will always remain among us as she’s planted seeds of sweet kindness and unconditional love among those who were lucky enough to cross paths with her.  When you plant seeds of kindness, you will always harvest a garden of love.
