Are you a homeowner who has been noticing that the water level in your swimming pool has been dropping rather rapidly? If so, you have to determine if the pool is actually leaking, or if you're just losing a lot of water due to evaporation. Pool water, no matter how much chlorine you put in it, will still evaporate. If you're having hot weather, even in winter -- and in the more southern parts of the country, a winter heat wave is not unheard of -- the water will evaporate more quickly.
If you're trying to grow a healthy garden without using harsh chemicals and fertilizers that may affect the quality of the soil, you may think that it's a real challenge. Not all soil is fertile enough to support a garden, and weeds and pests may seem as if they've often taken over. Consider four simple but important tips for keeping your garden healthy while still keeping it organic.

Potholes in your driveway are never good; they can damage your auto (especially if you leave them over an extended period of time) and spoil the overall look of your drive.

You won't need to hire a contractor to do it for you, and can save some money.
