How To Create Your Own Home Landscaping Haven

Americans love the long, warm summer months and the opportunities they bring to spend more time with their families. The warm, sunny climate also brings new creative thoughts about designing backyards and creating beautiful gardens, and home owners can learn how to design landscaping havens in their own backyards. Home landscaping is an enjoyable and rewarding hobby, and home owners who learn home landscaping skills also save a lot of money by not having to hire professional landscapers.

Your local library can provide an ample introduction to home landscaping, and you can also find free, plentiful information online. The first thing to do is to read up on the subject in order to provide the needed introduction to home landscaping. After the introductory materials are read and comprehended, it is time to begin creating you own private landscaping sanctuary.

You can collect ideas and designs from professional landscapers, as well as from amateur landscapers, and then develop these concepts into your own unique landscaping plan. It is easy to collect designs and ideas when you study books, diagrams and illustrations. After you create your home landscaping plan, the next step is setting up the home landscape. Is a swimming pool in the master plan? If so, setting up the home landscape revolves around the pool plan. Some home landscapers do not envision swimming pools in their landscaping plans, but prefer to create a beautiful backyard waterfall or pond instead.

Useful tips include the proper digging tools, and sowing your plants after the watered area is installed, because there is a lot of digging involved if a home owner decides to put in a pool, waterfall or pond. More useful tips include landscaping a little bit at a time. A rush job is likely to produce results that are not satisfactory. The homeowner also needs to determine the method of irrigation, as this is crucial to the success of the landscaping plan. Green irrigation is a newer method of irrigation that is environmentally friendly, because green irrigation does not use more water than the amount that is necessary to create the desired effect.

You can easily buy the required material to set up your dream home landscape at a local store in your neighborhood or at an online landscaping supply store. Buy the required material to set up your dream home landscape at the store that offers the highest quality materials, as well as the best prices.

Would Obama Win Election If Voters Voted Today?

Would you vote for Obama today? I recently won a WebAnswers Best Answers Award for my answer to the question: Would you vote for Obama? Granted, there were only 2 answers to this question about voting for Obama in light of what people now know, particularly regarding Obama's Health Bill. Nevertheless, I would like to share my answer with you.

How To Escape Obama's Health Care Plan: Join The Amish Or Convert To Islam

In light of media coverage proclaiming that President Obama's new Health Care Plan is to cover 94-95% of Americans, I have been wondering who the other 5-6% might be. I thought about the Amish. They don't believe in health insurance, but prefer to take care of each other when in need or ill, which is a Christian concept, and part of their strict Christian faith.

I respect the Amish, although I don't agree with some of their tenets. At least they are a peacable people, and generally don't go around physically harming others. On my weblog I previously wrote and published a post about the Amish being exempt from the Military. *See Link To This Post Below.

I have also been wondering about Christian Scientists who, based on their religious beliefs, generally don't believe in going to doctors at all, but rely on their own internal Christian Scientist practitioners. Will they be exempt also?

I have now been alerted to a post published today on American Thinker about the Amish being exempt, due to their religious beliefs, from the new Obama Administration Health Care Plan. Christian Scientists are not mentioned in this particular article, but Orthodox Muslims are! And this has to be the epitomy of nonsensical political correctness within the logic of those who invented this extremely controversial Health Care Plan.

Anyone who lives in the vicinity of Los Angeles, California, which includes myslef, is quite aware of the fact that there are a large number of Muslim doctors in this area who definitely accept medical insurance. My guess is they're not Orthodox Muslims. In fact, the American Thinker post states: "Whether it's all right to serve as a doctor, nurse, or orderly caring for patients whose medical services are being paid for by insurance is not covered in the present response ... " 

To quote the American Thinker article:

It says in Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa'imah (15/251):

"In Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa'imah (15/277) there is a quotation of a statement of the Council of Senior Scholars concerning the prohibition on insurance and why it is haraam:

Firstly: Commercial insurance of all types is haraam because it involves ambiguity, riba, uncertainty, gambling and consuming people's wealth unlawfully, and other shar'i

Secondly: It is not permissible for the Muslim to get involved with insurance companies by working in administration or otherwise, because working in them comes under the heading of cooperating in sin and transgression, and Allaah forbids that as He says: "but do not help one another in sin and transgression. And fear Allaah. Verily, Allaah is Severe in punishment"
[al-Maa'idah 5:2]. End quote. 1
