Garden-Smart TIPS

HANDY MEASURE
We gardeners often find ourselves in need of a measuring stick to space and plant shrubs and seeds evenly, or for determining depth when we're digging a hole. You can put your shovel, rake, and/or hoe to this use by placing a yardstick along the handle and duplicating the measurements with a waterproof marker. Now you have a handy yardstick with you almost any time you're working in your yard!
