A lovely home requires time, patience along with a little effort, and it all begins with your front and rear yards. Entrance charm is the key to making a property which stands out, but you need to know what you're doing before you begin. Please read on for a few simple tips to help you started.

Take into consideration water requirements. If you live in a area that doesn't get lots of rain, use plants that don't require a lot of water. Grass needs more water than any other kind of plant, so replace your lawn with wood chips, gravel, or a kind of ground cover that is certainly ideal for high drought areas.

However, you should check out a nursery to buy your plants plus your other products for example pesticides rather than settling for low-quality products.

Befriend your friends. You could possibly share costs once you rent equipment or buy large amounts of landscaping supplies together. Offer to help you your neighbors because of their landscaping project and they will probably assist you with yours. Let people borrow your tools and focus on building a common tool collection.

SAN RAFAEL Calif. (Reuters) - Oscar-winning actor Robin Williams was found by a personal assistant hanged to death at his house in Northern California, and the preliminary finding is that he died of asphyxia due to hanging, a local sheriff's official said on Tuesday.

Williams, 63, who was found dead at his home near Tiburon, California, had recently sought treatment for depression, said Marin County Lieutenant and Deputy Coroner Keith Boyd. His body was discovered on Monday in a partly seated position slightly off the ground, suspended from a belt wedged between a door and a door frame, Boyd said.

Mental illness is no joke and more and more people fall victim to it. Sad, Mr. William was such a great comedian that always found ways to bring laughter to our living rooms.

If you're unfamiliar with Thought Catalog, it's basically an online magazine where anyone can submit written pieces that have to be approved by staff for publication. It's often mocked for its often melodramatic, ditzy articles.

In the case of Ferguson, Mo., a city currently in a state of acute distress, Thought Catalog is a place where someone by the name of Anthony Rogers can write the most racist thing possible.

Here's the tweet sent out by Thought Catalog to that most racist thing:

And here's a sample of Rogers' "thought" piece:

So like a normal neighborhood dealing with the loss of someone they love, they started breaking into every shopping center plaza store and gas station. Newsreels yell "Riot!" "Looters!" As every stupid item gets stolen and the "looters" get to burning stores to the ground. Shocking news from Ferguson MissouriYou cannot find Jordans, rims, weaves or Quick Trips in Ferguson, MO.

The response hasn't been pretty. "You are a disgusting person, didn't have to read more than a few sentences and look at your home page to know this is an ignorant and racist article," reads a typical comment on the post.

One of the questions on Thought Catalog's FAQ section asks why the site publishes "offensive content." The answer: "We're an open platform and try not to filter any of the posts, although illegal content and visual pornography aren't permitted."

We've requested comment from Chris Lavergne, Thought Catalog's publisher.
