Sweat equity

Do it yourself and get a great workout, too


Clouds of pollen, weeks of rain and heat waves have made getting down to work in the garden a real challenge, but in just a few hours we got caught up.

On the “done” list: mowing a cloud of green that we call “lawn,” moving gargantuan piles of leaves we still had under tarps to leaf compost beds in the woods, pulling weeds, potting up containers and more. 

Sweat Equity is what one fellow do-it-yourself gardener calls it. It means increasing the value of your property with your own labor.

In addition to saving a ton of money, you’ll get one of the best workouts ever. So prepare to sweat and feel great afterward.
