Have you ever walked into a room and instantly felt better -- or worse? Then you've experienced the psychology of color. Colors can instantly calm us, energize us, or clear our thoughts. Artists and interior designers have long understood how color can dramatically affect moods, feelings, and emotions. Certain colors have been associated with increased blood pressure, increased metabolism, and eyestrain.
Spring and fall are both excellent times to plant new grass seed. Whether you need to patch a small dead spot or reseed your entire lawn, planting grass seed is easy and it doesn't take long to see results. Early spring is the second-best time to start a cool-season lawn from seed. The young grass has less time to become established before the onset of hot weather than in the fall, but you can get good results if you start now. With a little work you can get your lawn looking lush and green.
