Aerating: Is the process of punching holes (usually 3-4 Inches deep) into your lawn to allow water, oxygen, fertilizers, and other nutrients to penetrate the soil and better reach the roots of your grass. Aerating is usually done by pushing hollow cylinders into the ground and forcing out plugs of soil to the lawn surface.

Arbor: a shaded sitting place within a garden.

Botanical Garden:is a garden with the plants arranged for a scientific purpose.

Drip irrigation: is an irrigation method that minimizes the use of water and fertilizer by allowing water to drip slowly to the roots of plants. Installing a drip irrigation system allows safe use of recycled water, as well as minimizing soil erosion, nutrient and fertilizer loss.

Fine pruning: Is pruning from within. Both spiritually and physically. Pruning plants based on proper pruning methods. No chopping, hacking, grinding or any other unnecessary harsh cutting. For proper fine pruning, a plant should be properly pruned from early stages. Improper care, combined with years of neglect, usually causes unrepairable damage.

Mulch: is a protective cover placed over the soil, primarily to modify the effects of the local climate. Proper mulching brings a variety of additional benefits to your garden and landscaping, including repelling insects, sediment control, and controlling weeds.

Organic gardening: and lawn care involves establishing and caring for a garden or lawn without the use of chemicals like pesticides or artificial fertilizers. Organic methods of maintaining soil and controling pests avoid the problems related to chemicals, such as starving of natural predator insects and animals, and rapid natural selection of pests which require increasingly powerful chemicals to control.

Rain Barrel:is a barrel used to collect rainwater for further use later. Also known as: rainwater tanks, and rainwater butts.

Rain Gardens: are planted depression that is designed to take as much of the excess rainwater run-off from a home and its landscape as possible. Rain gardens increase infiltration, decrease surface run-off from roofs, roads, and paved areas, and reduce the risk of flash flooding. Rain gardens are one of the fastest growing areas of landscape development, and several cities have instituted municipal rain garden projects. Details of Seattle's Street Edge Alternatives project can be found here.
Thatch: Thatch is a layer of grass stems, roots, clippings, and debris that settle on the ground and either slowly decompose and/or accumulate over time. Thatch buildup is commonly found in lawns where grass has grown tall, mulch is frequently left, and lawns that have never been aerated.

Organic Fertilizing
