4 Tips for "Green" Gardening from Avant Garden Decor

Gardeners can help the environment even more with a "Green" plan for their flower and vegetable gardening with a few helpful habits

PHILADELPHIA, April 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- What can be more natural and beneficial to the earth and the environment than Green Gardening? When gardeners use eco-friendly gardening techniques, they can get better results and save their gardens from damage done by chemicals.

A few simple gardening habits are all it takes to get started on the journey to "Green."

1.) Efficient Watering: Cut down on water evaporation and waste by watering your gardens in the early morning or evening. Apply mulch to your garden beds to retain water moisture in your plants while also decreasing weed growth.

2.) Say Goodbye to Chemicals: Get rid of pesticides and chemical fertilizers and instead turn to organic weed killers and compost. Safer Brand has a line of organic products that is well-loved by gardeners for its effectiveness, in addition to its organic attributes. Most Safer Brand products are OMRI approved. Safer Brand EndALL kills over 40 different plant-attacking insects while keeping the environment safe. (http://www.avantgardendecor.com/store/insect-controls/b5102)

3.) Composting Made Easy: The hero in "Green" Gardening is the compost pile. By using leaves, grass clippings, fruit and vegetable skins, you can make compost and give your gardens a nutritional super-sized meal. This will not only cut down on waste and save money on expensive fertilizers, but will also enhance the soil with all necessary nutrients.

Start the composting process with Ringer Compost Plus Compost Maker, which uses a range of natural microorganisms to aid in material breakdown. In particular, Ringer Compost Plus combines thermophilic organisms that work at higher temperatures and contains specially designed nutrient sources that start the compost process more quickly and efficiently.(http://www.avantgardendecor.com/store/composting/2b3050)

4.) "Green" Hanging Flower Baskets: Flower gardening can get in on the "Green" movement as well when gardeners use the EcoLiner for their flower baskets and pots. EcoLiner is made with recycled materials and has higher water retention than traditionally used coco liners. In addition, the smoother lining of the EcoLiner gives flower gardeners a new and elegant look for their potted flowers. In addition to its eco-friendly attributes, it has the added benefit of being "Made in the USA." (http://www.avantgardendecor.com/store/ecoliner/plb14)

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory. But until recently, no one knew how to listen. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dan Gettens, Chief Research Officer at OnProcess, discussed recent research by Massachusetts Institute of Technology and OnProcess Technology, where MIT created a new, breakthrough analytics model for s...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity.

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it?
