Should I call the electric company before I start digging a vegetable garden?

Monday, October 4th, 2010

We just bought our first house and I’m looking to start a small vegetable garden. Do I need to call the electric or gas company before I start digging? It’s only going to be a foot or so down that I’ll be digging. Just enough to turn the soil so I can plant in it.

What are some examples of easy maintenance outdoor plants and flowers for yard decor?

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

I recently moved into my first house and the previous owner had lots of high maintenance vegetation. I’d like to spend time cultiuvating a produce garden and not really worrying about flowers etc but I would like some things to spruce up the yard. What are some examples of plants that need little to no care once placed in the ground that can liven up my yard a bit?

-Also, I’ve been told that plants native to my area are easier so just for your information: I’m in Southeast Tennessee.
