Coal Seam Gas - say NO!

I attended a community meeting tonight to discuss keeping the Scenic Rim Coal & Coal Seam Gas (CSG) Free.

It was good to see the REAL information and not the glossy crap the politicians pass off in the way of advertising. Although it's very sad that communities have to fight against something that makes no sense for Australia.

Why on earth would we CHOOSE to do this to our land - our soil, our water, our health?

If you live in the city or in a region not directly affected by CSG you WILL still be impacted. This isn't just a farming issue - it affects everyone. I urge you to get some information - to help the wonderful and amazing volunteers and do SOMETHING. Buy a sticker, attend a meeting, make a donation... And say NO TO CSG.

Keep the Scenic Rim Scenic - and Australia to for that matter!

Winter Gardens

Not looking very green outside at the moment. Lawns are brown but it won't be long before they're soaking up the spring sunshine and turning green once again.

If you're getting frost on your lawn, don't walk on it until the frost has thawed or you could damage your lawn.

Enjoy your winter garden and frosty mornings (personally I'm looking forward to Spring!)

Keep those lawns happy

These rains are keeping the lawns growing. Soon it should be time for them to take a "growing" break.

If you want a great lawn, you need to look after the soil. Make sure you keep the moisture up - if you can't get a screwdriver into the soil, you aren't watering anyhwere near enough. Dead spots on the lawn are also a red light. Use Water Crystals to retain more water in the soil. There are products you can put on the lawn or mix in with the soil if you are planting new lawn.

Feeding your lawn. Use an organic fertilizer. Don't put synthetic products on your lawn - your soil is alive but it won't be for long if you don't look after it.

Weed and Feed. You shouldn't need it. Keep your lawns mowed so weeds don't go to seed. Hand weed any that have got out of control (or get the kids to earn their pocket money). If your lawn has too many weeds, you'll need to look if there is another reason for it.

If you need mowing for larger blocks - give Boonah Landscaping a call :)
